Note to all: Lessons learned.
1. Do not paint the edge banding frame around the perforated top. Clamping to that surface scuffs the paint and leaves marks on your projects. I recommend building it custom from a nice hardwood like oak, maple, or ash. (Dovetail time!)
2. The rail slots on the top are nice if you plan on traveling with the MFTC a lot. If you are building it to keep in your garage as a space-saver, just add another t-track. You will find it more useful and you can hang your guide rails on the wall.
3. When buying a perforated top (if you swing that way) check and double check the dimensions. I had to cut a spare bit from my cutoff to extend the length to fit. The top was not the same size as the final interior dimension and came up a few inches short. The T-55 and domino made the extension seamless, but I know it is there.
4. The folding extension tables are awesome for anchoring the MFTC to a post or built-in bench, if you have one. Just extend your top and clamp to a nearby top or leg and it is incredibly strong. I can clamp the MFTC to my wall to brace it for planing and I can plane away with ZERO play. No need for an overbuilt bench!
