Heres a pretty Cool article I found

http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/editors-blog/table-saw-safety-why-the-british-think-were-crazy

I found it informative as I was having issues with timber binding when I was ripping it using the CMS/CS 50 fence. I had the fence set up the way we do in the states.

Anyway Im going to give  attaching the sliding fence that came with the CMS router module on the CS 50 fence a try.

The reason is I got the sliding fence off the CS 70 and its way long to do this safely

Now I realize that this fence system is set up for the euro way.

Duh huh?

Im posting this here b/c its more of a euro UK thing then a N/A thing

What? "While it’s easy to poke fun at the British for their quaint use of our language"  [scared] what are they teaching you guys in your history classes?

What?? [eek]


It just discusses some of the differences we have in table saw fences.

I had some issues that it answered and confirmed by festool Uk. Im guessing what got yas all riled up was this quote

>>While it’s easy to poke fun at the British for their quaint use of our language, their fondness for strange-flavored potato chips  and their inability to make a car that doesn’t leak oil, it’s hard to argue with their approach to table saw safety.<<


The way I read it , it complements you guys.

Well we do speak a different English. But I thought it was a tongue in cheek comment,

tongue in cheek means making a joke/ being funny.

I have removed several offensive posts that do not conform to our forum guidelines. Please do not resort to personal attacks, name calling, quips about one's nationality, etc. Keep it on the up and up, please.

It would be a real bummer to have to lock down a 300 post thread.

Thank you. Carry on.

I just wanted to let you know that Festool UK has their own Facebook page. I had mentioned during our last contest that Festool UK would be doing their own contest. I believe it will be conducted via their Facebook page.

So, give them a like!

https://www.facebook.com/festoolGB




If you're opposed to Facebook, I'd prefer we not get into that debate.  Thanks. [smile]

Hi all
From London

Have just had my first taste of the "green kool aid" and now just started selling up most of my other tools to pay for them.

Would love to come to the meetup but get back from hols that day so I may be jet lagged.

Will keep eye out for the what, when & where
