Festool Features

The Festool Mobile Sawing Table has all the tools to make sheet good management…more manageable. The Festool STM 1800 tips forward while retaining its stability, letting you load and align large sheets of plywood by yourself.

Festool STM 1800 Mobile Sawing Table

It features an assortment of adjustable parts, such as panel cleats, casters, and table leg heights. You won’t need tools to make any of these adjustments either. Festool uses a system of easily-identifiable green knobs and clasps to lock and unlock various functions and mechanisms.

Festool Mobile Sawing Table

The Festool Mobile Sawing Table supports sheet goods up to an impressive 10′ x 7′. That covers just about all of the cutting applications we can imagine. It even doubles as an assembly bench. The Festool Sawing Table includes removable and adjustable support arms to customize the table for working with your workpiece.

Possibly the best feature is how easily it collapses. When you’re finished, just fold the table up. It transports easily at an impressive 74 pounds.

Festool STM 1800 Table Pricing

The Festool Mobile Sawing Table retails for $995 and “deploys” in September 2020. It works in tandem with the Festool line of portable track saws and guide rails, making for a comprehensive system designed around convenience, portability, and precision.

What We Think

The price may put this out of reach for some woodworkers. We agree that $995 puts it in a unique position as a higher-end product for those who need the flexibility and portability this tool offers. The big selling point is the increased productivity through its adjustability and ability to provide single-person loading of larger sheet goods. If you often work solo—this could pay for itself very quickly in time and material costs.
