Site looks great. Found myself there last week and insta-bought the MFT squaring... square. I've been after a large square for a while but yours looks very well designed for getting the MFT track aligned very quickly and easily as well as an assembly square too.

I have high hopes it'll work a treat for squaring things up on the CMS as well e.g. slider fence to TS55 blade to LA fence and, less importantly, slider fence to CMS-OF fence. Shame I didn't hold off for the discount code... I'll live ;)

Website looks great, very polished.

Just one thing, are you allowed to sell these?

The lettering is not the same as the Festool logo (it is a variant within the Eirgramma/Microgramma type family — often used for science fiction movies etc., like Battlestar Galactica), so there is no copyright infringement there.

The artwork is derivative of a widespread meme that has been around for years, with the drill silhouette added. Maybe this artwork is something 'found' on the web, or it may be a cheap bit of stock art — but once again, probably not copyright protected.

I don’t think Festool's legal department will bring out the big guns in this case...

Hey all, Yes the font is called Eurostile and correct it's just a stock vector of the evolution of ape to man.

These are just a gimmick and something a little different for people to own.  some of the designs have been going better than others but for £12 it's not breaking the bank.

Thanks to the guys that bought stuff from us.  All our products are manufactured in the UK and we have just introduced our newest Bench Fence Dogs and Fence, so please check them out if you have time.

I second this question.  I can see more uses to include making fences to use on assembly table for clamping/glue-up.  I’d like to order some.
Thanks

Wow. Look at this and others: http://www.benchdogs.co.uk/product/mft3-replacement-top

Free shipping, too (in UK)!

It is cheaper to buy it than to make it yourself (assuming you have the tools to do so).

How come we don't have anyone making and selling this kind of top in North America at such competitive prices? Any Canadian entrepreneurs on this Forum?

Sure would you like just the dogs or the dogs with the fence as well?

Sorry for the delay getting back to you all, for some reason I'm not getting a notification when the post gets replies.

Cool that sounds fair.
Sorry for being Dutch..... the price on Ebay looks less than on your website (even with discount code applied) and Ebay also includes free look a like parf dogs.
Best to order via Ebay?

How about this one.



Just mentioning this as copyright infringement can be very expensive.

Call it a friendly nudge before anything serious happens.

Although I had changed the carlsberg logo I thought it be best to remove those ones. So thank you for the heads up.

As for the tops. The website is slightly cheaper but they do not have the dogs with them. But I will be removing the free offer of the dogs by the weekend. So probably best to order from their if you can.

Hi!

I tried to order via de website but there is no shipping method available for 2 x mft replacement board to the netherlands.
Is it a webshop setting which is not correct or is it me?

Okay, just one last question from me. You are selling 'M Class Stickers', why would that be?

I hope it's for people who have maybe damaged theirs and not so L class dust extractors can be misrepresented? ;-)
