If you look at the price of this new Festool router before reading this review, you’re going to miss the details of an extremely innovative tool. So resist that urge. I think many router manufacturers will copy features of the Festool OF2200 for many years.

When I say extremely innovative, it’s still an understatement. Let me begin with a feature that every router user will appreciate: changing router bits. This task is no longer a knuckle-busting event. Festool incorporated a single-tool ratchet action for changing bits. Depress the rocker-style spindle lock (one direction to tighten, the other direction to loosen), then use the wrench in a ratcheting motion to do the work.
