I ordered the MFS sled from Toolnut, now have all size extrusions and sled.

I guess the MFS sled is the best solution when using the MFS as it doesn't take away any depth capacity for sled work, so I probably need to get one as well.. Hope it works out for you..

I just purchased my new Festool fidget Cube. I chose the cordless model for $99.00 on special pre-order deal with Systainer. I'm hoping to purchase the accessories for only $75.00. It has a three year guarantee and provide nothing more than fidgeting functionality. These will go fast.

I used my MFS sled the other day to hog out the center of pattern for mirrors that I'm making for my daughter the jewelry designer.  A long ,long, long time ago I made a batch of 10-12 mirrors using a small cast iron fry pan as a pattern for the wood framed mirrors.  Being young and subscribing to the try it and then fix it method of design, I decided to use my drill press and a 1/2" milling cutter to hog out the center.  Being young and still having decent reflex's I ended up with 4 perfect curved slits in my left thumb as the bit grabbed and I jerked.  Meanwhile, back to the present, I thought since I had just bought the MFS slide, I'll use that to hog out the middle.  I had already used the MFS to make the circular pattern...and Mikey likes!  The problem with the slide is that it can only set for one length.  How to limit the length of router sliding??  I use Magswitch magnets for lots of uses...not the ones marketed to woodworkers, the heavy duty, pull your truck ones.  I have 200's and 400's that you can hang off the ceiling with...I used the 400 set to stop the router and had no worries of it shifting.  Love my MFS', sorry for those that did not get the chance to experiment with it.

First Festool, first post, Domino 500 with accessories and domino kit on order. Even with the potential 10% discount, was not willing to buy a dust extractor with it, just too expensive for my needs as a hobbiest doing woodworking in my 14x28 foot shed at home. I have most other tools I want/need, other than a good router table, so I'm hoping I don't get sucked down the festool path as I'm not sure I can afford to go too far.  Took me a while to finally pull the trigger on the Domino, hope I use it a lot and enjoy it.

Yeah - that's how I started as well.  Then I realized that you have to use some kind of dust extractor with it.  My old Festool mini was too inconvenient, so I ended up getting a CT 36 for the tool actuated switch onboard.

@Cdwhyte

 [welcome] to the FOG and enjoy your new tools! Even if it's not a Festool vac, make sure that you do use some type of dust extraction when using the Domino. It helps cool the bit and pull debris out of the mortices.

Thanks @copcarcollector , I use a shop vac with the Rockler small port connectors for small tool dust collection. Works fine for my biscuit jointer, sanders, Kreg jig, etc, just loud, no variable speed, and no tool plug in.

My first Festool was a domino. I figured I'd get that and then the only other thing I craved was a TS55, well that was about two years ago and now my stack of systainers is about 12 feet tall! Be warned, it's a slippery path. As the other have said you really have to have extraction with a domino. With other tools dust extraction is nice or helps keep the cutting path clear etc but with a domino it's essential for it to work well. Enjoy.

Bought a ETS EC 125/3 sander to try out for narrower work than my 150/5 is suited for.
Looked at the new version DTS 40O and its edge guard too. Surprised at how far away the spacing is on the guard as it sits from the sander body. But, Festool left the 'nose' or point of the Delta pad open and not enclosed by this guard while you're using it , so you can still get into corners or tight spots even with the guard mounted....

The newer Festool saws come with a locking dust port connector that fits a 27mm hose.

Thanks. I measured the I.D. right after I posted and it is 27mm and its lockable, as you said.


A smooth dust port that is sitting on my workbench has an inner diameter of 30mm and an outer diameter of 39mm.  Bosch and Fein both have tool connectors that fit the Festool dust port.

I need an adapter to step down from either 1-1/4" or 1-7/8". I'll check those sources. Thanks for the tip.

Bought PDC 18/4 Drill, BHC 18 Hammer Drill, SCA8 charger and one battery. Got that set quite easy for wallet  [smile]
Retailer had too big stock and want to get rid of some. Machines are basic versions, so they were without batteries.

I sold my big tablesaw over the weekend and am going to use my bosch 4100 and festool stuff in my 10x16 workshop.  I am new to festool and bought a domino xl 700, both systainers of dominos, the lr32 system and 2 tracks. I got a makita track saw at home depot for $300 with a coupon.
I am looking forward to making good cabinets and am leaning to getting a MFT.

Today I pulled the trigger on a TS55 REQ.  I'm upgrading from a grizzly track saw, which was OK, but I'm kind of hooked into the system aspect of Festool now (1400, Domino 500, ETS150/3, DTS400, LR32 set, holy rail).  It probably won't be here in time for the weekend, but I'm not sure if I will be able to use it anyhow.  Also picked up the TSO rail square yesterday.  My bank account is a bit lighter, but what else am I going to spend my tax refund on?

I debated this purchase as well.  I ended up getting one about 18 months ago.  I use it and the CSX as much as any Festool product I own.

Well, Ive been bit.  And bit bad.  It s the system concept for me that makes the most sense.  I work in the shop and in the field so either one i need to be versatile and flexible both in use and in transport.  So, in addition to my existing list

Kapex, UG Stand, wings
CT22
Domino XL
TS75
ETS 125
Pro 5
MFK 700

Last week I ordered

CXS set
T18 Airstream Set
Domino 500
OF2200
SYSROCK  ;D
CTL SYS VAC
2 ratchet clamps
Another Dust Deputy
and couldn't decide between the CT MIDI and the CT 26
Ended up ordering a CT26

Then found a used MIDI that I bought used locally that had another ETS 125 for a whopping $350!

I also got a used centrotec installers kit and a set of clamping elements.
Also the fasteners Systainer with all the cool bins!!

I used to think people who bought that much were crazy!  But I gotta say, I like this club!!


And most of that is in thanks to Timothy Wilmots and his youtube channel of his new shop and system workbench and his MFTC(Big thumbs up).  After a few big jobs through my new shop, I realized where I was losing money.  Watching Tim in his shop was an AHA!! moment for me.  Sheesh...I may need a vacation after I open all those packages.  Best of luck!

Its going to be a good few months of upgrades round the shop!!
