After lurking on this forum for a couple off months the time has come for my first post/question.
My name is Oscar van de Leur, I live in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and I am an fanatic do-it-yourself-er continuously improving our house.
I started my trip down the green slippery slope when I purchased a DTS400 a year ago. And the angle of the slope only increased when I discovered the FOG.
So far your enthusiasm for the green stuff has cost me a TS55, a CTL26, a professional cleaning set, 2 T-Loc Box's to hold screws, a T-Loc II to hold my hammer drill, an MFT/3 replacement top, a Qwas Super Pack, a couple of Adjustable Bench Dogs from Toolimprovements and a Festool fence.
And I thank you for that! My projects have become a lot more enjoyable.
So far I have turned my B&D Workmate into a semi-MFT:
And using that I am creating a Systainer storage cabinet utilizing the otherwise wasted space above the boiler of our solar heating system:
My next project will be to design and build a MFT/3 systainer/CTL26 port similar to the one
that Steve Row created and the one (reply #14)
that jonny round boy has designed.
But as I do not own a MFT/3 yet (I am planning to buy the profiles and corner brackets as parts from my local dealer when funds permit
) I need the help of a MFT/3 owner.
I would like to start building the systainer/CTL port and use it temporarily with the top I now have on the Workmate. I want to put the space below the top to good use and I need wheels! I am done with lifting the MFT-top and Workmate each time I need to move it.
Would someone please be so kind to flip their MFT/3 over and measure the length and width between the edges of the corner brackets?
I am going to mount it like Steve Row and need to know how big the top surface of my systainer port needs to be to properly support the MFT (I want the corner brackets to just fall over the edge of the top surface).
Thanks very much in advance!
