Clark, Dan,

I would never disparage the usefulness of the MFT's 20 mm dog holes and the numerous clever clamps and gadgets Festool and others, including esteemed members of the FOG have developed.  My point was that the PGS, in providing the ability to replicate an MFT top, among an infinity of other layouts, provides the crucial ability of making the array near perfectly orthogonal, which gives the system its superpowers.  It's this feature that I fear is lost on a small work surface, making the Parf Sticks much of the PGS superfluous and overkill for Dan's instant purpose.

I'm sure this is  merely a case of my wondering too hard.  I'll talk to my barman about it this evening.  [wink]

Cheers, Gary

I made another example of a benchtop bench Here

See reply 378 and 379.  I made it by using the MFT as a template and hand-tapped a 20 mm Brad bit to space the holes.  Not perfect, but close enough for a benchtop bench.

I made my mft replacement top using the 1400 and the shelf pin system.  TimTool's technique is infinitely clever and is provided in his plans for his Larger workbench.

Here's an article in German showing a mini-workbench that uses Festool clamps:  mini-bench. Interesting idea.

Just ordered mine today, with the new bit and a set of short and tall parf dogs.  ...

Now I just have to wait for all of the pieces parts to make it across the pond.

They came it today.  FedEx made the delivery.  Everything looked to be in tip top order.

I also ordered a 25mm forstner bit from Lee Valley to compliment the kit.  It will drill holes for the wider diameter of the parf dogs, and it looks like the smaller diameter of the 3mm drill bit bushing.  I was thinking it might help to make that bushing easier to handle if it were inset into a handle.

I may get to try things out this weekend.

...and remember to put a spot of oil on the shaft of the 20 mm cutter !

I have a new video coming out in the next 7 days which gives some News and Tips for the PGS and @clark_fork will get a mention too.

Peter,

You might want to post in this MPT work table thread: http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-sales-dealer-area/new-mpt-(multi-purpose-top)/ .  The UJK looks like it would be a very useful tool for creating an MPT top.

Regards,

Dan.

Hi Dan,

I have had a quick look at that thread and am not sure if I should just wade in there pushing the PGS. I certainly think that Dan Pattison is doing his best to get his design out into the world and it does not look as though he has any method for producing an array of holes as accurate as can be produced with the PGS.

Perhaps if other people bring up the subject of the PGS on that thread then I will join in if there are any questions about it.

As an aside. I made a triangular square out of yellow plastic a while ago using my TS55 on my track saw cutting station produced with the PGS. I asked Axminster to check its squareness as they have a £25k machine that does that sort of thing and I had an email from them earlier this week - it is just 0.018 degrees out.

@Peter Parfitt Let's put this into tractable terms...

Sin(0.018)*600-mm = 0.2-mm over a 600-mm length

Or 0.008" over a 2' length
Or 1/128th " over 2'

Certainly good enough for me.

I ain't no sucker but i have a vacuum.
And I has me some saws, and some sandpapers.

@Holmz

Thank you for explaining the accuracy like that.

I showed the square being made (I actually made a pair) in one of my Workshop Notes videos. I do not normally post links to these videos on the FOG but will in this case as there are several Festool related things in it. At about 7 minutes 55 seconds I show the square being made.

Here is the link:
