    Comments about Festool OF 2200 Router T-LOC :

    I got this router to replace a Porter Cable 7539. Primarily over the 7539's inability to center guide collars. The ad copy for the OF 2200 says it automatically centers with them. That's not entirely true, at least not on the machine delivered to me. It's very good, but it's not perfect. I find that important. I want to know exactly where I'm plunging an end mill when I'm using a guide collar and a template for mortising. Beyond that, this router has a lot of useability improvements over the 7539. Something that one might expect with a new design over one 20+ years old. Both are powerful. Both plunge. Both are heavy at 17lbs. But that's where it ends. All of the controls are within a finger's reach on the OF 2200, including a circular shield that will drop down by pressing a button next to the right handle. This shield is to help with dust collection. It moves up and out of the way for bit changes. Bit changing is enhanced over the already great self releasing collet of the 7539 (now on all routers) by being a one wrench system plus it ratchets. No need to remove and reposition the wrench, it will ratchet. Depth control is accomplished in the usual manner, but there are improvements to get fine adjustment for making it "just right" when you're using a round over bit and want no "step" for example. Or a particular depth. The router has 6 speeds controlled by a thumb wheel. This speed adjustment is actually infinitely variable. The speeds claimed are exactly correct. I checked with a resonant reed measurement device. The router also has a brake to stop the bit much sooner than it would by simply turning it off. I wasn't sure that would matter to me, but it's turned out to be helpful. The plunge action is smooth and the lock positive. They say it locks on both posts. However the knob to lock requires turning it counter clockwise. I find that backwards. I'll get used to it. The machines dust collection is very good for a router. It's not perfect, I'm not sure that it could be, but Festool obviously gave this thought and implemented some nice improvements. Overall a pretty good machine.
