Hey Don and Corey!
It was a fun class. I really enjoyed meeting everyone and I learned something from each student there and some from the teachers, too
. Like Don said, we got our $100 worth in the first hour or so. And thanks to all you pros for being patient with my amateur questions. Dan was a very patient partner and taught me a lot.
I thought I knew my Festools cold, but came away with lots of cool tips - did you know that you can adjust the tension on the clamping elements? There's a set screw by where the rod enters. Came away with a lot more respect for the OF1010 once I understood some of the accesories (we did sliding dovetails with it). And now I believe that the 2200 really can run a big roundover bit in one pass thru maple, cutting it like butter.
Tickled to meet Timmy C on the way home, I'll be looking for your son on the Opera stage!
Hope someone will post pics of the class - I left my camera at home
And especially, thanks to all the Festool staff - I see what makes Festool the company that it is.
