I can't help out right now.  Just downloaded new Mac operating system and am installing.  If Shane or Seth doesn't do it before I can get to it, I will.

Sorry,

I'll save that for another thread.  Waiting for the APP site to cooperate.  Give away software and they will come.

Must be something wrong on the forum, I took the pics and rotated them right side up and put them in a message three times and they keep showing upside down.  There is a problem here somewhere, or with the pics.

Just tried something! If you right click on the image and pick "open image in new tab" (on a Mac) it will open right side up, or at least it did for me.

Rusty

You have to click on the image first to make it bigger then right click.  If the new tab title is MFTC-portable-workshop then you're good but if it says index.php (200 x 149) then you didn't click on it first to enlarge.  Clear as mud, right.

Sorry, my upgrade to Mavericks hit a little snag and I couldn't get to Photoshop until today.  I took the liberty of adjusting them so others could see more details of your fine work.  Here are your images:

Peter,
My update went smooth as silk.  Only thing I've run into was Textexpander needed to be upgraded to work with Maverick's.  Liking it so far.  Not near the drastic change as with ios7.

Really nice job.  It looks great!

While it's fresh in your mind, could you summarize in a post the parts you ended up going with and the part # and source?  Thinking that would help others on this side of the pond who are looking for a bill-of-materials.

I have the plans.  Just need to get on with building a unit when I get other things done.

Thanks for sharing!

T track -ptreeusa.com #1018. If you decide to go with these I recommend bringing the outside frame from 1/2inch to 3/4. I like the look also. Because I widened the top frame by a 1/4 you will need longer bolts. I went with 5/16 x 3 inch.

Slides -leevalley.com touch open slides

Feet  -I've found one camar distributor petermeier.com but they don't carry the 323 series. They carry the 343 and 345 series. I was fortunate to have then send me a few, but they only sell bulk.

Other than that its straight fwd

Just wondering if anyone kept track of the total cost of building one. I would love to build one for my garage so I can take it down when I want to park inside.

Here's a summary of the amount of wood from the English imperial unit instructions:

1 sheet of 1 /2 inch plywood
1 sheet of 3 /4 inch plywood
1 sheet of 1 /2 inch mdf

The MFTC instructions have a detailed cutting diagram for the sheet goods but the total amount of hardwood and softwood is not documented.

I went through the plan and added up the board feet to be:
hardwood 2.3 board-feet
softwood    5.2 board-feet

I am not sure what kind of multiplier one would use to account for board waste.  At any rate, these numbers can be used for a rough estimate of the cost of wood.

I am hoping Timothy might follow up with complete materials list from his MFTC instructions.

I was thinking about actually replacing your flip top with the real MFT-3 table since the length are almost identical and then adjusting the width to the base. Making some kind of Pivot-plate on the inside of the MFT3 extrusion shouldn´t be to hard I think...

For anyone in the UK, I used Eurofit for the drawer runners - much cheaper than anything else I looked at on line at 4.38 a pair inc vat, free postage and quick delivery. http://www.eurofitdirect.co.uk/46mm-ball-bearing-slides

And, I don't know how to register CarolinaNomad in Dutch. ???  Maybe someone could post pics here.

I like the MFTC-MFT/3.  Don't mean to infringe on product name, but I have added this to my to do list.

I like this idea as well, although wheels on the narrow would make getting through doorways easier.
n = number of Festools I've got.  (n + 1) = Festools I want
