Don't do Facebook very often, so this one passed me by Tim, but great shot of an MFTC loaded ready for transport!

The cargo bike and Festool system is a perfect combination! For some clients showing up with that kit alone would be enough. The cargo extension below is great as well. Fits any ordinary bike. Here in Asheville NC it would be conceivable for some to bike with their gear to a job.

It was posted on the Festool GB Facebook page back in July, but I don't "do" Facebook very often so only noticed it today.

I like the trailers from www.bikesatwork.com.  I have not pulled the trigger yet, but it would be a handy way to haul an MFTC.

Wonder how my 11'6" SUP would fit on that? Been looking for a way to get it to the beach without firing up 3 tons of steel and plastic.

Unless I'm looking at it wrong, how can you see where you're going on the blue bike? In the eastern countries the load is behind the rider. In any case it's awesome and beautiful.

Hello Everyone

I'm starting this project this weekend and I would like to confirm 2 items.  I'm going to purchase the following sliders and legs and want to get your thoughts on whethere I'm on right track.  My most concern is on the sliders being a bit too long at 14 inch--?
Any feedback is appreciated.

1. Legs - http://www.leevalley.com/EN/hardware/page.aspx?p=69020&cat=3,40993,41283&ap=1
2. Sliders -  http://www.leevalley.com/en/hardware/page.aspx?p=60897&cat=3,43614,43616&ap=1

Any suggestions on getting the hinges?  No luck at Home Depot.....

Thanks a bunch.

As for the levelers, try woodcraft Item #27P20.  I built them into the support members at the bottom of the case.  This way, you won't be trying to shim your insert into 1/2 inch plywood and it will be much stronger.

Greeting folks

Firstly, I'm new to this forum and I want to thank all posters for the immense amount of knowledge they have put up on here, without you guys I would be in some serious trouble :)

Is it possible that the MDF portion of these plans should be 3/4 inch and not 1/2 inch?  If I'm not mistaken the Festool table comes in 3/4 inch thick MDF?
Another reason why I ask is because the Lee Valley clamping set specifies that the table should be 3/4 inch thick....its possible I'm confused so I apologize for the question if it does not make sense.

I want to buy this clamping set from Lee Valley Tools and I'm worried that it will not be compatible with plans that call for 1/2 inch thick MDF?  If I modify the plans and use 3/4 inch MDF will it be ok?  I understand that it will be heavier....

Here is the set I'm referring to.

http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/Page.aspx?p=70681&cat=1,71990

Please confirm either way.

Thanks :)

Rob,

Welcome to FOG.  I'm also a relative newcomer, but I did just complete the MFTC and used 3/4" MDF for the top.  It works fine, just a little heavier.  I think Tim stated in a prior post that it was simply a weight issue.

Perhaps this is something for you Timtool > http://www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/

Fairly easy to set up (free) webshop software which supports digital downloads as products and PayPal out of the box...might save you some hassle manually sending out all the files!

Anyone from Norway that have built the MFTC ?
I bought the plans a few days ago but are having problem finding the hardware, especially the T-tracks. Shipping from US or UK  makes them very expensive, so i'm trying to find them closer to home.

Any suggestions to where i can find reasonable priced t-tracks and Accuride 3832TR 350mm / 14" for the drawers?

This seller seems to have a lot of choices but I didn't see the 350mm one. Here is a link to the 450mm one:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/SLIDE-TOUCH-RELEASE-450MM-Price/dp/B008RF7U6M/ref=sr_1_10?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1421020666&sr=1-10&keywords=DZ3832-

They are £29.71 for a PAIR with free UK delivery. I don't know if that's a good price, nor do I know what shipping to Norway would add, but maybe it's an option for you? If it seems like a good start I'd contact them about getting the exact ones that you want. I assume there would be some quantity discount as well?

Well, I finally finished my version of Tim's Cart.  So far, this thing is working very well...

210973-0

I modified Tim's excellent cart design to focus around the TS55 Saw.

210975-1

Each drawer is focused on providing access to tools and jigs used during sawing operations; clamping, marking and measuring, rail guides, and the saw itself.

210981-2

The top drawer has a foam-fitted array of my most-used clamps and my tape measure.  I will add compartments for fasteners in a few...

210983-3

Close-up of the top drawer....

210985-4

The Veritas Clamping Kit is the BOMB!

210987-5

I think I am going to make a separate insert for the rail guide - I don't like this one; there is wasted space here...

210989-6

The Saw fits neatly at the bottom...

210991-7

The bottom drawer is custom-fitted to hold a sliding tool rack and a french cleat tool rack with an attached magnetic rack from ace hardware, of all places...

210993-8

Here is the full setup, great for cutting and minor hand tool work.  Thanks to Tim for his excellent design! 

To all: follow his directions exactly, there is little tolerance for error.  The only thing I would change is the top cutout - it lets dust into my top drawer and I need to design a fix...I should have caught this issue when I made my modifications.  Every mod you make needs to be well thought-out.
