After watching your video on the Parf dogs/bench dogs, I see I should get 2 pairs of each so I'm going to try and change my order.
I notice that you (Peter Parfitt) say in the video that with the dogs you don't really need the extra hardware on the full version of the MFT 3, and just to go with the basic, but I feel that at least for newbie's like me being introduced to the MFT 3 komplete gives added confidence when first getting to know the system. These new tools will doubtless lead me on to find new and more efficient ways of working. I have used my own improvised track system in the past, so what attracted me to the MFT 3 was the the guide rail setup with the mitre which I had envisioned would turn my TS 75 into a mitre saw with a very wide cutting length very respectable 70mm cutting depth..
I'm sure the short rail guide the fence and the stop will be nice to use so those things alone add up to the difference in price between the MFT 3 and the MFT 3 basic..
I do like the your ideas of going for simplicity in setup. If you just want to take a few elements out when doing a few basic processes.
To sum up I'm really glad I went with the Parf Dogs, Bench dogs, which add a new dimension to Festools system and am very pleased they are available at a competitive price on this side of the pond!
