Caught up on this thread now that part 3 is up... watched part 2 again cuz I watched it, uhm, at work, uhm, while doing, uhm, work...
Love the 1080P HD; looks great on a 27" monitor!
I'm curious what those black bumpers were on your MFT. Look simple enough, but also pretty handy if they could stop some lateral motion.
So the plastic piece up near the fence for setting the height now lists the fence-to-center-of-mortise distance? On the DF-500, the scale on the fence shows that, but the 'quick set' steps show the overall stock thickness. I'd prefer it show the height (in a way like positive stops). Sounds like they improved that on the Domizilla.
Too bad you didn't have this for that barn; I could imagine the hassle of taking long stock to a mortising machine. And the time. Build another one with the 700 for comparison!
'Naughty words' is far too gentle a description of what I say when I screw up or when the glue seizes in my 104ºF garage in seconds.
Nice video series; well done! Rats, I forgot to mute the thread...
