Successful corner rounding with the Ecko system
- Precisely manufactured for precise rounding
- Protection from reaching into the otherwise open cutter
- With adjustable stop to prevent swing-in jags
Simple adjustment of the edge stop. This prevents the cutter from swinging into the edge.
Rounding glued edges on the front side.
Compared to a copy unit on an edge banding machine, a very cost-effective corner rounding.
Function and operation
- The edger is fixed in the corner system.
- The cutter's thrust bearing is guided in the opposite direction from the first side over the corner to the opposite side.
For corner rounding to be successful, precise guidance must be possible, especially with a relatively heavy, electric machine.
For example, the swivel stop is ground to close tolerances. Price see above.
- The cutter must have a thrust bearing.
- The machine must have a through hole in the table for the M8 threaded pin of the swivel stop.
- The brown support surface of the table must end in front of the milling cutter. If the support surface surrounds the milling cutter, please give us a note about this. We will then adjust the Ecko accordingly.

The Ecko system is mounted on an edge router. In the version offered here with the designation Ecko ...MFK 1, the Festool MFK 700 edge router becomes a corner rounder.
The Ecko system consists of 3 assemblies
- Swivel stop
- Table unit
- Collar unit
The Ecko makes corner rounding a success. The three main sources of error in corner rounding are avoided: vertical wobble of the machine, horizontal wobble and warping in the end point.
The assembly is very easy to perform. The operating instructions are richly illustrated. The adjustment of the stops is quick and easy to perform.
The swivel stop 2 is fastened through a through hole in the machine table. The swivel stop 2 has a large diameter so that it can be tightened by hand without tools. Like the other white components, the swivel stop 2 is made of a high-quality engineering plastic. In addition, the swivel stop 2 is ground extremely precisely so that mechanical engineering accuracy can be achieved despite the light weight of the plastic.
The table 1 is slid onto the swivel stop 2. The table 1 contains the swivel bearings 8,9 with a very precise bearing bore. The swivel bearings are aligned with each other via pockets milled into the sliding plate 7. The table is fixed without tools by a spring-loaded locking bolt 12.
On the one hand, the handle of the table 32 can be used to guide the table 1 safely. On the other hand, the guide hand is defined to the location of the handle and is far and safely away from the milling tool. In addition, an interference with the tool is prevented by a chip and interference guard 10.
The edge stops 17, 33 prevent distortion at the end point. In the case of a right-hand corner, the end point of the milling path is determined by the contact of the collar clamp on the workpiece. The edge stops 17, 33 are set so that they are in contact with the workpiece at the same time as the collar clamping at the latest.

The collar 19 is inserted into the opening of the table and held by the collar clamp 20. The collar 19 ensures that the cutter is turned inwards around the front support point of the machine table in the direction of the workpiece, which would otherwise immediately lead to destruction of the edge surface.
In the Ecko system, two further points are taken into account that affect the edge processing sequence on a workpiece. After gluing the edge band, the longitudinal edge is first machined on the top and bottom sides. The milling cutter is set for this. When changing to corner processing, the machine is rotated with the milling cutter from vertical to horizontal. On the underside and top side of the workpiece, the contour of the previous longitudinal edge milling is also passed over again during corner machining by hand. Here, there is a very high risk that unsightly milling marks will appear due to asymmetry in the cutter and operator-dependent guide inaccuracy. For this reason, collar 19 can be ordered in such a way that it protrudes slightly in front of the sliding plate of the machine and thus pulls back the milling profile. The edge is protected and there is no need to readjust the milling cutter.
Now you have already created a right corner, where you guide the machine with your right hand. What do you do now with the other corner of the workpiece side, appropriately called the left corner? Especially with large workpieces that are not easy to turn. With the Ecko, this is quite simple. With one hand, you press the table 1 over the black handle 32 onto the workpiece, and with the other hand you swivel the machine, held securely by the swivel stop 2, from one side to the other.
Milling is always performed in the up-cut direction, i.e. from the bottom to the top in the case of a right-hand corner. The front edge projection should be trimmed. The shorter the projection, the better the milling result. The router's thrust bearing is placed against the workpiece and guided from the bottom up to the top. The hand on the Ecko table follows the movement.
Corner rounding succeeds with the Ecko.
The Ecko system is registered as a property right.
