Has anyone discovered a good way to cobble together a good MFS substitute, now that Festool has discontinued the MFS jigs?
I just had a use for MFS today, and ended up gluing up jig that would do the job, but it's not going to last, and it's only as accurate as it needs to be.
Looks like Trend has a system out there that looks a lot like MFS for about $100 pounds, but with narrower, less supportive extrusions - the router requires an "anti-tilt shoe". Has anyone used that? If so, what did you think of it?
Veritas has a new extrusion (quad track??) that looks like it could have promise for putting something together because it has a wide dimension that could be used to support the router (although not as wide and supportive as MFS) and a narrow side with track that could be used for connections. After looking at that track, I thought you might be able to put it together with the right connectors from 80/20 line and get something that would connect pieces without getting in the way of the router.
Any other solutions out there that people have had success with? One of the obvious requirements is the ability to keep precise 90 degree angles on the connectors. What are the other requirements of a good MFS replacement?
