Thanks for the speedy replies; Peter I really like your Videos
Yes I was hoping to modify an MFT/3 table top
the ones you can pick up on ebay that are pretty much spot on, think it's about £40 + postage and I think the guy was giving away 6 dogs with that top so win win as I can always use spare dogs. So I can keep my origonal MFT/3 work top as is, and then mod one with a hole that I can put on my old black and decker foldable work bench, which can then also be used as a feed table.
CMS OF TOP Axminster £429.96 (Best Internet Price)
Replacement MFT/3 Top £49.99 inc postage
Festool Basic unit CMS-GE GB 240V £390.21 + CMS OF
Total with Module £820.17
I really like the CMS OF vs the one's from Axminster or Trend as it looks better made and more accurate which for a newbie means less frustration with whatever I'm working on, plus it means that I don't have to buy a raiser for it as well which is a saving of £300.
I've seen the videos on youtube of the full system, but like I said I can't justify the almost £800 for the legs and the top.
Logically I'm thinking buy the OF top now and put it in the ebay MFT top for this year and then next year I can get the legs, and maybe the Scroll saw plate which would then be more justifiable, don't need the plunge saw module as I have a dewalt table saw.
So anyone accomplished such a task ? The older posts have no viewable pictures so I can't see what lips are on the product.
