Hi Bob

That is great news - well done Lee Valley.

Please do show some pictures of your finished cutting station. Yours sounds similar to mine.

Yes, yours is the inspiration that got me thinking the PGS purchase was worthwhile.

It gives me the ability to make this slab work surface similar to yours and to make a
replacement top for the MFT. And should I ever need to add a precisely spaced grid
of 20mm holes to bench tops or other work surfaces I already have.

I've just noticed the discussion here on the PGS, which I was planning on buying to make my own MFT style workbench.

If the PGS now comes with a Centrotec style forstner bit, does this mean those of us with non-Festool equipment (yet) will need to source a replacement forstner bit from external sources?

No, the fitting is hex and Centrotec and so it works perfectly well with legacy hex holders and can be held in a normal chuck - which I would recommend for anyone without a Centrotec bit holding chuck.

There is no other Forstner bit on the market with the precise requirements for the PGS.

I've been slowly boring my holes when it hasn't been too cold in the shed the past few nights. I'm using the Bosch flexiclick drill sans chuck with the bit straight into the hex and it's working fine.

Well it was above 5C in the shed tonight so I got the rest of my holes bored out. Very happy with the system, I've done a few quick tests and all seems very square.

It may be an age thing but I do not work below 10 deg C and if I am gluing it goes up to 12 deg C. It is also safer to be a bit warmer.

Well done for getting the job done.
