Hi Everyone

I have started a series of videos about Festool's approach to some elements of workplace organisation. I initially set out to cover just storage options but I have expanded this and will eventually include the Sys MFT, Sys Powerhub and the CTL Sys.

The majority of this kit has been purchased by me from Axminster Tools and Machinery and I just walked in and paid the regular price. I did ask the chap serving me if there was a chance of a discount - he was very polite and I did not get any discount at all. Festool UK have kindly lent a couple of items to me.

Here is the link to the first video which went up this morning:



Video #2 will be done very soon and I will follow that with the video about the inserts that I made for the Sys Toolbox. These two videos may have to be swapped around.

The CTL Sys is due to arrive soon. I must confess that I have never rated the Sys MFT and thought it a silly idea. How wrong can you be - it is brilliant but it lacks one very important feature which I am working on right now.

I have a KS60 in its box sitting on the workshop floor and I am unable to unpack it until I have a major clear up. So, mixed in amongst all of this you should expect something on the new mitre saw. The kit is again on loan from Festool UK and I am on a tight time frame so that it can be collected and sent on to the next reviewer.

Peter

I meant to ask - do you like the closing music ??

Perfect timing and a great video with real world demonstration. I'm new to the Festool world but organization is what I'm all about, even ordered my tools with SYS Drawers. Seeing what actually fits in these will give me an idea on how many and how to build out the shop and mobile cart.

Well done Peter. You look different did you lose weight. Get a few hair plugs? Anyway I like the dea of the inserts you made for the tool box I'm going to use that one when I get state side. I'm also going to be picking up a box kit as well. After watching the second video and owning a couple of those 3 door syst it seems well worth the cash.

Looking forward to the next one. Less then 90 days to go now probably more like 80 days...

Hi Ron,

Lose weight? Me? In fact I have been on steroids for months now and my face has blown up like a balloon.

If you are going back to the US then do make sure that you get back on the FOG straight away.

I remember watching a trainee driver doing skid pan work and he did the most amazing recovery from a big slide. When the car stopped the instructor got out and I could see him congratulating the driver. The poor guy went on the fail his defensive driving course - he was just lucky on that one manoeuvre.

That sort of sums up my music. I am a rubbish player but I sometimes get lucky with not a hope in heck of being able to repeat the success.

Hi Everyone,

I have completed the video showing how to make the inserts for the Sys Toolbox.

The plans are available free of charge but I need an email address to send them - you can PM that to me if you like.

Here is the link:



I will be working on the Sys MFT, CTL Sys and Sys Powerhub in a couple of weeks time as I have a deadline to finish the KS60 and CTM 26.

Many thanks Don.

The kit is excellent but not cheap. Some argue that it is better to make your own but I doubt whether a busy professional could justify spending the time doing this. My "guesstimate" is that most professionals could earn enough in time that they would take to make toolboxes (with drawers and that fit together) to buy double the number of Festool storage solutions than they need.

Hi Peter, seen that you're about to review the Kapex 60. Please can you look at the shadow light and see if you have to lower the blade to use it? Thank you.

Hi Stuart

I am ahead of you. I have nearly finished all the filming. In my view the shadow line is improved by lowering the saw. However, the shadow line is no more accurate than a laser. If you need precision to 0.5 mm then use a fine pencil mark and kiss the surface with the blade to get it spot on. Better still, use the UG cart and the length stops which eliminates all the guess work.

The saw is really well made and the cuts that I have done are very accurate. The bed area where the wood rests is quite small, certainly compared to the KS120 as the KS60 has the 60 degree both way mitre. That reduces the possible size of the work piece support.

The main casting is excellent and to a better standard than the KS 120.

I have a lot of editing to do and may need to re-shoot the odd bit. But all being well the videos should appear in about 5 days from now.

My biggest worry is how to get it all back in the box to get it back to Festool. They use a banding machine when they send out their cartons and I have to cut that stuff off to get at the contents. I think that I am going to have to buy a banding machine now to re-pack all the tools - life is never easy.

Peter thanks for the info. I've been using a DeWalt recently and I find the shadow line almost pointless because you have to lower the saw to get the guard out of the way. I'm sure for ultimate accuracy lowering the blade is ideal but for a lot of things a mm or maybe 2 doesn't affect what I'm doing and if it's a particularly big and heavy workpiece it's not easy to move with one hand.

Rather than a banding machine have you considered a roll of the industrial cling film? It comes on a reel and you can insert a handle and you just wrap it around the item.

I'm campaigning for them to produce Christmas pattern cling film as I'm sure loads of us guys could use it for their Christmas wrapping.

Looking forward to the video as always! If you need a hand getting rid of the saw then I'll pop up and help!

Hi Stuart

That is a great idea to use that industrial cling film. I see that Screwfix do it so will give it a try.

Don't let the shadow line put you off the KS60. It is there and it works but it is improved by lowering the blade. I have now filmed the trenching and that is better than the KS 120. It may be that the columns are stiffer or it may be the lighter head unit but it is better.

With luck the overview video will be up late tonight or early Friday. The second video with all the cutting and so on should be done by Sunday or Monday.

You can get banding with band buckles that are fitted by hand - much cheaper for the occasional use.

Didn't make you click on this thread... didn't make you watch one (or both) videos... perhaps you leave us non professionals alone in the videos that make us happy and entertain us.

Perhaps you should go to the professional Festool owners forum, you can find it at the same place you can get a nice warm glass of ...

It is interesting the number of professionals who do indeed use these Festool items. They are probably the ones who have too much work to spend time on a thread like this or are so well organised that they can enjoy a bit of FOG leisure time. I visit several local professionals who do not blog, are not members of any fora and work 6 days a week. I keep them up to speed with new kit and, when I am able, I show them any kit that has been on loan to me before it is sent back.

I sometimes help them out with routine stuff. I made a batch of KS120 zero clearance inserts not so long ago which went to professional friends - at least one of whom is a serious professional and FOG member. By this morning I have sent out 98 sets of plans for these toolbox inserts.

I first saw the large Festool toolbox in a working environment being used by one of the chaps working on a £3m house near London. One of my desks had been delivered the day before and so I was able to show it off to him. It was quite topical as the desk was walnut and he was just finishing off the solid walnut detail on the staircase.

I'm currently at a theatre with a number of professionals. Nearly all of them have had a play with my tracksaw and said how much they like it and one of them has even ordered one online today. They obviously knew of Festool but viewed it as expensive after seeing the accuracy and me explaining the 3year warranty and insurance they all seemed very impressed and they liked the systainers and how they link etc.

Even for us hardcore hobby types it's worth it, protecting your investment and making things portable at the same time.  I have convinced my wife to use these for all of her craft, sewing and nail polish collections.  I have and am making furniture all the time for her hobbies but these make a great solution to things you want to have mobile.  Now when she goes to a crafting event she can bring all her Sortainers with a cart and wheel it in, even if that event is just out in the living room or at a friends house.   

At first she had a fairly negative reaction to the price of the items but slowly she's coming around.

I promised myself I wouldnt get sucked into these type of conversations, but this one Ill make a exception to.

Every pro I know uses festools. At least the pros that are working on high end projects. Most use a MFT or MFT knock off such as the Ron Paulk work bench. One old carp who is now retired (60 years in the business) taught me some valuable lessons. He makes "kits" He has a "kit " he uses for door / window / trim carpentry work, installations

Festools systainers and sortainers make creating and organizing those kits very easy. In fact when I saw Peters videos especially the one about buying extra boxes for the cantilever tool box and the 3 door sortainers,

 I got all giddy cause the light went on.

Why did the light go one you may ask?

 Because when I return to the states next month I have a lot of outdoor projects planned both for myself and some other folks. The ability to throw some screws in a tool box companied with a installers kit ( I have a limited offer one that was only available in Europe maybe just the UK that was put together for outdoor projects/ timber framing).

So my life will be a lot easier using this ONE system rather then bits and pieces of many diferent manufacturers creating a "kit" of mishmosh kit of different manufacturers tools etc.

Ive asked Peter to get that Sys MFT video he mentioned made and posted.
 
Why?
 
Honestly ( No offense Peter) , not because I think he is a genius and pro at using tools,  or the most cleaver person I know of wood working,

but because his ideas on how he does does things ( same with most people who post their tips), Help me generate my own ideas on how to make my wood working, both shop and home remodeling life easier.

For pros its all about saving time and producing quality work for the most part the best way to save time is work flow, efficent work flow is in the prep.

Just my opinion, your milage may vary

Hi Ron and Terry

@jobsworth  @Terry Fogarty

I am sure that @glass1 was not being nasty in any way and probably has his own way of working that does not require the degree of jobsite organisation that this kit allows.

As I said before, I have seen these in action with busy professionals and I have no doubt they will also be of great use to other talented people including those who have non woodworking day jobs.

Cheers.

What exactly is disrespectful in the wording?
Or how should it be reworded to convey the same thoughts and opinions?

It may be that professionals in North America work differently from those in Europe or the UK. (As the UK is Brexiting) and
Or maybe professional or hobbyists in shops have varying needs.

I appreciate the opportunity to see the video and also Glass was crystal clear.

Peter, given the statements made above, it does appear that your reviews have become a little more commercially driven and contrived. You used to have a mantra that your reviews were only for products you would recommend to your very best friend and you weren't on anyone's payroll. Additionally they seemed to once be more targeted at things you owned, but these days they seem to be predominantly about either donated or loaned products. Is it the case that you've diluted your recommendations away from that mantra?

I remember you gave a glowing review of the UJK router table only to never see it again in your workshop.

It's not a criticism, I am a fan of your products (I own Parf Dogs and the Parf Guide System) but I am interested to know if you are now compensated for your reviews?

Is it the case that you've diluted your recommendations away from that mantra?

I remember you gave a glowing review of the UJK router table only to never see it again in your workshop.

It's not a criticism, I am a fan of your products (I own Parf Dogs and the Parf Guide System) but I am interested to know if you are now compensated for your reviews?

Hi Bob

The "Golden Rule" is still there and has and never will be broken. If I cannot recommend a product or a process to my very best friend then there is no video.

In order to make this series of videos I have spent over £250, paying the full retail price (no favours at all). The items that are on loan will be returned when I finally complete the series.

If my work was commercially driven then you would see videos about rubbish stuff that appears on some of the large box shifters web sites (I am not talking about Festool at Screwfix !). I have, more than once, been offered a complete workshop full of power tools just to make a couple of videos. I now set a 3 month time limit on kit that gets sent to me which fails the Golden Rule and never gets collected. Some goes to recycling and some gets given away to chaps only too eager to give it a go.

I treat all of this as "Commercial in Confidence" otherwise my subjective view of what is good or bad would dominate the whole aim of The New Brit Workshop. I know several people who will be reading this now who have had kit rejected by me but I doubt whether they will be prepared to join this debate now.

Let me give you some very simple stats from the last financial year...

I have sent out over 1500 sets of plans, free of charge, to people wanting to make things that I have shown in my videos. I have answered every question placed on my YouTube channel and acknowledged every comment - that is over 25 messages or emails a day.

In order to make some of the things that you see I get some support. The two classic cases are Coldene Castors who have helped me with every nutty design that I have created for the "Mobile Workshop" concept. The other is Accuride who have also helped in that area. Without their support there would have been no videos in that series. My only income is from the advertising on YouTube and if anyone thinks that is generous then I challenge them to have a go and find out.

My Festool videos are made with kit that I have bought or borrowed. Festool UK have helped a lot but they do not invite me to do this or that. I suspect after this they will not bother answering any more of my emails. I badger them for whatever I think people want to see next. Look at the timing of the MFS video that I did. Festool did not give a stuff about that product but boy was there some interest from here on the FOG and tons more on YouTube. Look how much later my KS60 videos were compared to others.

The payroll bit next...

I have only been paid for one video. That video in not on my YouTube channel and has never been shown (to my knowledge) here on the FOG. The girls involved were very kind and promised to say nothing to anyone.

Next the UJK Router Table...

Space in my workshop is at a premium due mainly to the camera kit and the need to have a "studio" area for most of the filming. Somethings have had to go. The UJK Router table (better fence than the CMS-OF, very accurate but not so good dust collection) had to go. Next to go will be the X-Carve CNC which will be advertised for sale very soon.

Finally,

I work 7 days a week. I have spent many thousands on camera and sound equipment (again, no special deals and full prices paid). My aim now is to give something back - to help other people. If I spent the same amount of time pushing trollies at the local supermarket I would, by now, have made enough money to buy every bit of Festool kit that they make plus a car or two and have the extra time on my hands to enjoy it all.

Hi
If Peter asks for a product to be sent out for him to review then it is on the condition it is returned - I arrange the delivery and the collection back to our stock and the video is totally under his editorial control what goes into the video and how it is presented. Peter does NOT receive payment in any form from Festool UK.
  The KS 60 Peter reviewed is now with another reviewer and will once finished with go on to another. The machine will finally arrive back to Festool once the round of reviews has been completed and go back into the training room. This process has been used many times and the items come back to Festool.

Can't agree more on that Phil. I have owned a pair of Festool sanders, my CT-36, and the Domino XL for a few years and just recently started replacing lessor quality tools in my shop with Festool. I have found Peter's (and those of others) videos helpful in making full use and as quick introductions to using those tools and also to gain from their experience which often brings some trick or hidden feature to light not discussed in the manual. I have a good idea of how much time goes into producing every minute of video in the final cut as well as the equipment needed to create a quality video. To do all this out of pocket with no support or underwriting from a vendor or manufacturer says a lot about his commitment and willingness to help others and for that I applaud Peter for his work.

Are you saying you're an actor and having a laugh, or am I just being a cynical , dirty old man ?  I know we've had our differences on some issues, but I applaud you for making these videos.  No one is forced to watch them or use any of the info you present, so I fail to see a problem.

I do think it important that you tell, or remind, people that you're not "on the payroll".  It makes a big difference in how people perceive your message, given today's marketing landscape.

Many thanks for the kind words.

@antss  The video was for someone I know well and was for his business (quite legit and no girls). I received just enough to buy a hand held radio mic which I realised that I needed after interviewing people at one of the Festool roadshows using a lav mic attached to a long piece of wood.

Hi Ron

I know that you need this and just for you I have been doing the rest of the filming over the last couple of days. I have done some of the editing already and so give me 24 hours and I should be able to get it on YouTube.

How is the packing going?

Don't work too hard and take plenty of breaks. I think we moved either 19 or 21 times (I know it is an odd number) and so I do not envy you for one minute.

Hi Ron

That is an excellent idea. I assume that you swapped the lids.

I wonder whether it would make sense to do this and put the top on a Sys Combi ? That way you would have a drawer for fixings and small odds and ends and also a compartment for the tools like those that I showed in the video.

Maybe Festool should take note and offer a choice of systainer under the MFT top.

Thanks for the review, Peter.  I've had the CTL-SYS for about a year but you can still learn something new from an in-depth look by someone else.  (It took me while to realise there were tools under the lid!)  I really like it for use in the house - I used to lug the CT26 around - and using this drilling dust nozzle has transformed the mess I used to make drilling holes in the wall - https://www.festool.co.uk/accessory/500483---d-27-bsd#Overview.

In the spirit of modifying systainers, the Festool 702082 Systainer Attic Replacement Lids, are a great way to store drill accessories, or keep your Fein, Vecturo, or those other brand oscillating tools blades, for air tool accessories and I'm sure other people have other applications.  I've bought three of them from Lee Valley although that route gives your three more Sys IIIs that you may or may not need.  Toolnut is now pre-selling (available end of May)the lids as a stand alone.

I think the bigger boxes make more sense than the SYS-1 MFT; because you need some clearance to actually get your clamps into the box.  I've got my top switched to a SYS-2.

The SYS-MFT top is a brilliant idea, I have 3 of them on SYS-5s. It's my portable MFT for jigsawing and sanding etc. and I use them as a hop-up to reach an extra 16". One has about 70 hand tools and glue/fillers etc., another contains all the extractor components I use and the third has 8 x Bessey clamps, a small level and an Abranet sanding kit inside.
Very multi-functional and everything is well organised. I love these things...

Hello @Peter Parfitt,

I agree, otherwise you'll end up with lots of SYS-1s after you remove the tops.
What I did was to install the SYS-5 tops on the SYS-1s and sell them on via eBay.

Another Systainer modification to another SYS-5. Attic lid has compartments for nails of various sizes as well as a small nail punch. A Senco 1010 compressor, an 18' hose and a nail gun are stored inside. The base of the Systainer has a piece of ply screwed to the bottom with four braked castors fixed to it. I prefer this DIY SYS cart to the Festool SYS-Cart as it doesn't protrude any further than the Systainer so makes packing in my van alongside other Systainers that much easier.
The Systainer has several holes allowing the compressor to draw in plenty of air and for the mains cable and air hose access when the lid is closed.

Hello Ron,

There's a cut-out at the top of the Systainer for the mains cable enabling the lid to close, a 55mm hole at the side for the air line to pass through with 5 small holes beneath this and another 6 on the back.

I have to lay the Systainer on its front to let the condensate drain away, it's easier than removing the compressor every time I use it.

The feet were removed from the Senco 1010 compressor so it would easily go in.

I had a job in Germany a few years ago and this very nice Belgian guy joined the group. He drove to the base with all his precious vintage wine in the car. His wife had to travel by train and it took her a whole day to get there, with luggage and at least one change of trains. All because he would not let the removal guys handle his wine.

Thank you Peter for your wonderful, informative videos.! It certainly provides me with some inspiration to get into the shop and do things more.
Have sent you an e-mail request for the plans for the SYS-Tool box,

Kind regards,

Tosh
