My advise is to get used to it. This should not be too hard as it is well thought out. Get the Festool dust collection system and add the sander(s). My experience with the dust collection has been better than with any other system. However, the 1400 has one major drawback and that is the lack of any way to center bits in the router template guide/bushing. I originally bought mine to use with the Leigh dovetail system but have found that I much prefer my Bosh 1617EVS since it has a great system for centering the bushing. I do like the depth adjustment on the 1400 the best of any router system that I have or have had in the past.
