New training videos from Sedge
« on: April 19, 2017, 05:01 PM »
A lot of you know Festool trainer Brian "Sedge" Sedgeley. He's starting posting minute-long videos of Festool tips and tricks. They're on Instagram, but you can watch them online without an account. For a lot of you long-time Festool folks, many of these will be old hat, but there's lots of good stuff here.

He's posting a new video each Monday and Friday.

You can see them all here:

Here's a few of my favorites:

How to increase the tension on your clamping elements: https://www.instagram.com/p/BR0t4iaj2GI

How to automatically shut off your ETS EC if the hose falls off: https://www.instagram.com/p/BSbbKY2DiSv/

How to align your DOMINO mortises on a crosshair: https://www.instagram.com/p/BS3s0jcjHSH

How to calibrate your KAPEX laser (by simply cleaning the lens): https://www.instagram.com/p/BRvaendDKDp/

How to properly connect your Guide Rails: https://www.instagram.com/p/BSleKgKDBn6

What questions would you like to see Sedge answer?

I suddenly like my clamping elements so much more.  Who knew.

Great info.  Especially centering domino on crosshairs.
   Does he have any video tips on how to use my iPad?  I could only get it to play about half of the videos.

Spent most of the time in the shop yesterday trying to figure out how to do this very thing.  Logged on this morning, saw the post, watched the video - who knew about the milled edge?  Sedge is brilliant, and thanks to him, I'm now a little more educated about my Festools!  Great job, and THANKS!

I also appreciated the video on the DF 500 used to place Dominos within a field.  [thumbs up]

Installing blade and setting tension on carvex. One of the guys at the roadshow demonstrated a way of doing it that I had never seen before, which I think many people are probably unaware of.
