If all UK members just say a Hello/Hi  then when a NEW UK member says Hello it will pop in your new replies making you aware of a new GB crew! + If I update this posts I can make a comment so it will pop up in your New Replies also!

Hope this will help for some future organised events OR trying to get some tools or other items from the USA across the pond in quantity.

Good to see you have a firm grip of the language. :-)

I thought you were going to retire to Nevada?

So did I. I even forgot I applied for this job. It  came out of nowhere.


 I forgot all about even applying for it.

I must of applied when I was deployed in AFG.

I told them yea Id take the job but I need to know before Apr1 cuz Im due to retire.

When I got the first phone call (13 Mar) asking if I was still interested I told the guy  that they would have to make their decision before then so I can pull back my retirement. Then monday I get a email asking If I would accept a tentative job in huntingdon England. I told the family, I  thought about it and accepted it.

My 16 y.o. daughter (calm down boys I got a big bat I carry) has been talking about wanting to go there for 2 or 3 years, my son who is a excellent (brilliant in english terms) football player (soccer) has been wanting to go there and try his luck. His trainer here has connections there and will try to get him a look at.
So I took everything in consideration and accepted it.


I think I got a handle on the language, lets see

"Hey Keep how about a  effin pint over here and one for me new mate"

"Bullocks the bloody reds lost to that russian team again "chelsinski"

"Bloody Ref screwed us on that call, effin wanker, go back to the coca cola league ya piker

So I think Im coming right along with my communications skills , [big grin]

Im sure they will get fine tuned after I get to know the guys at the local pub, lumber yard and tool store.

Seriously my only concern is shop space. Im going to be looking for a garage , preferably a 2 car.

Im going to sell my stationary tools to a good friend of mine and take my festools with my. Im guess I would not need a table saw, jointer, big router table etc anymore. I havent used mine since I started using the festool system. I am going to get the CMS (one with all the attachments ) and the OF2200 here before I go  and ship them over.

I can pick up the centering ring for it there along with the TS55 / jig saw belt sander and module there. Ive been considering getting the TS75 module and leave it in the module just in case I have to cut some thicker wood.

But to be honest, my wood working will be playing second fiddle to traveling and seeing the country. I think its a excellent opportunity for my kids and wife, to see all that history there. We are so deeply tied with the UK in our history and they will never have a chance to get over there in there entire lives to actually send time enjoying the country and culture. Plus being so close to Scottand, Ireland, Wales , Germany, France, Austria, Chech Republic etc. Im really excited about it.
I havent been there since the 70s. Germany was divided, I looked over the wall into East Berlin, Now we can go visit it.

Im hopeing nothing happens to screw this up. Its like a dream to me.

Peter and I have been conversing, He gave me a link to Axminster. Looks like a decent supplier. Thanks for the heads up about the box store. I dont usually go to them for much. so you guys get 4X2s huh? Do they sell them by how tall they are rather then length? [cool]…

Good luck sancho hope all goes well , I would love to do it in the opposite direction and move to the states but both my boys are in really good schools so we've gotta stick here for now

They are all busy at JLC live so I guess I timed it perfectly :>D.

Id wait a little bit before you decide to this side of the pond. Things are starting to turn around, barely. But there are a lot of things happening that may throw the economy back i the dumpster.
We alway like nice decent people to come here .
What part of the country were you thinking about?

BTW I know about the kids in school thing, I have the same issue. Thats why it took me so lng to make the descision to take the job.
It is a difficult one.

Only just found this thread but then I am still very new to both this place and Festool !
I am Steve, from London originally but now in Cornwall.
I paint mainly but do a little or everything, and so far have a RTS400 and a Rotex 90.
Looking at a CXS though I don't really need one and a TS55R though I have no idea how to use it to anything like its abilities !

Also looking for help when the credit card bill comes thudding loudly through the letterbox.....

Have any uk members had any luck with running a kapex 110v on a generator

after speaking to a guy at festool he said it should run on a genny if my ts55 does, if not i could return it
so i have tried it and it does not run but i do like the saw so would like to keep it if i can find a genny it will run on

If you have a genny it will run on can you post the make and model

mine is a honda eg1900 and as said that will not run it

Well the festool guy needs to go back to a festool training class!

Saying if the TS55 will run the kapax should is rubbish!

I had same problem on a job I turned up to find my kapex wouldn't run.  I spent 1hour messin about no luck.  Yet my TS55?worked.     Luckily my mate had his dewalt chop saw and left it for me to use while he went on another job.


You need a generator with a clean sine I think.  The kapex is really picky doesn't like dirty electricity

This thread is not particularly about the Kapax, but about the OF 2200 router. The principle is the same and i'm sure the same theory will apply.

Is this the best thread to ask a sort of UK specific question? I'll ask it anyway and maybe someone can move it if it's the wrong place.

Has anyone successfully used any other vac attachments (specifically Henry as they're cheap as chips on eBay) on a Festool hose? I'm weighing up buying just a 36mm Festool hose as I need one, or paying the extra and getting the tradesman's cleaning set which includes the 36mm hose and various attachments. This would mean chucking away my large collection of siemens, henry, karcher attachments that I have been using on various incarnations of - you guessed it - siemens, henry & karcher vacs over the years.

I didn't need the angled wand bit on my last vac as it was built into the hose, but I'd be looking to get a henry one as they're metal and cheap and try to ram it into the 36mm somehow.

Ta in advance.

I've also just ordered a couple of these to get my bosch sander and chop saw to fit the hose perfectly by the way. http://www.espares.co.uk/product/es538504/karcher-vacuum-tool-adaptor-sleeve?ApplianceTypeId=1086&ManufacturerId=877 (http://www.espares.co.uk/product/es538504/karcher-vacuum-tool-adaptor-sleeve?ApplianceTypeId=1086&ManufacturerId=877) - just cut it at the stop you want to use and as it's rubber it fits perfectly. The large end pops straight over the end of the 27mm hose - not sure about the 36 yet as I don't have it.

UPDATE: I've started a new thread on the subject in case it's not a UK specific thing.

Ron - I don't believe it, changing your name just because you are here.

Actually it makes sense for loads of people....

In the UK it costs a small fortune to get a personalised number plate for the car. But, for just £25 you can change your name by deed poll. So, keep the random registration that came with the car and change your name to match it.

We need more people from the UK to declare that they exist rather than just lurking in the background. That is the only way that Festool UK can be persuaded to see the FOG as a viable entity and a useful conduit to the UK tool owning fraternity.

Come on, do it now, tell us who you are - this might, one day, mean that there will be competitions sponsored by Festool UK.

I would encourage someone to start a similar thread for Europe as a whole, for Australia and New Zealand and perhaps a ROW one as well.

But for now, if you are a UK person and have not put your head above the keyboard then summon up the courage to out yourself (in the Festool sense) now.

Hi Everyone,

I'm from the South East and was a lurker here for quite a while before using the knowledge I gained to tart making my first Festool purchases. Started with a TS55 and have recently added the Kapex 120 with UG kit, Rotex 90, CMS with OF1400, Domino 500 and a Midi Vacuum.  With a £50 voucher just arrived I'm on the prowl for a new addition.

Hi all
I too am a long time lurker now new member in the south east. Just started the festool addiction with a MFT3, TS55EBQ and rails, RO90dX  and OF1400. Fitting a kitchen today.
I wouldn't mind the odd competition either. What do we need to do? What percentage of those on the forum are NAINA.

Jools

Hi Kevin and Jools  welcome!

I'm not to sure what the videos need to be.   

I think demonstrating and explaining the best features of a festool tool you like the most.......

So basically making some one wanting to buy the tools after they watched your video.

Hi Peter,
What do we need to do?

Hi Rusty,

I think that you have done it already - you have joined in and are visible. We need as many UK Festool owners to become active or at least visible here on the FOG.

Also, please tell your friends and workmates who are also Festool owners how valuable the FOG has become thanks to the participation of so many enthusiastic members, particularly in North America, and the fantastic efforts of the moderators.

FOG membership has increased my knowledge and my confidence using my Festool kit and I have been helped out time and again by input from others.

Well done JMBFestool for looking after this thread.

Peter

It's our dry sense of humour, it's NAINA, so we keep our stiff upper lips buried under our bowler hats whilst we drink our Pimms - or so they think. Me? I like a nice Belgian beer...how very British.

I have learnt SO MUCH from this forum, and given I've had Festool gear for years now (well, a TS55), it's funny how little I knew. I have more gear now, and yes, I have a problem.

I just hope he never reviews an Aston Martin or a Porsche 911!..

I am having a great time reviewing the posts here and learning something new every day.  great to see what other FOG members are up to.

Fortunately for me, being 15 miles away I am fortunate not to of inherited the accent. Although I do get a lot of comments saying that I sound posh.

One really doesn't understand that comment when I receive it however  [big grin]

Accents should always be cherished however, as it would be a boring world if we all sounded the same.

Woodworking has been a bit neglected for a while with a new business and young family, but enjoying getting back into it and also enjoying choosing my next Festool purchase!

I'm mainly hobby but got into Festool building furniture and fitting out my retail shop. Helped me justify the purchases - and also dust was a concern - especially once the shop fitted out.

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?

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.

Sorry I'm another 20k down after just buying some felder machinery which will hopefully be arriving tomoro or Friday.  

I sorted out a biomass boiler system from a company for my parents which was 20k
Which hasn't turned out very well. :( Hence why I'm keeping quiet about workshop... Because the company liquidated after my parents paid £9k deposit.   Not sure what's going to happen yet.   Just seems one thing gets sorted with the workshop another problem pops up.

Hi Ant, welcome to the FOG.

Looks like you've picked up the popular Kapex/UG/Midi combo - you'll love it. Problem is, you'll start looking at all your other tools as inferior models from here on in and it can get *very* expensive, *very* fast!  [wink]

Started with EHL65EQ planer, then got Carvex 420 and SYS ZH-SYS-PS 420 (which I bought off Wuffles, I'm assuming it's the same bloke on here) and finally for Christmas my wife bought me TS55REBQ plunge saw with 2 X 1.4 rails, Connect, rail case, fastening clamps FSZ 120 and festool tape measure. I really don't know what to go for next, I need a new drill, dust extraction or a router.

Hi from sunny (at the moment) Cornwall.  I'm an enthusiastic amateur but I appreciate the quality and system integration that Festool provides.  I have had my TS55 and 3 rails for a couple of years now and it sees regular use, I also have an OF1400 and a CTL26 somewhere in the back of a FEDEX van, which I am looking forward to using when I get home from work tomorrow morning.  Oh, and SWMBO is clearly brand aware, she bought me a black and green dustpan and brush for my garage the other day  [big grin]

Hello all,  Dan from Bristol but I guess you know that already!

I have been reading for months and posted a couple times, but not really god involved much yet.

I started a new business in inbuilt storage last year and have invested heavily in the Green, 500 domino, 55x 2, 1010, 420, 420 cordless, 150/5, ro90, t18, cxs, lr32, Kapex 120, ug wings, mft3, 3mtr/.8/2 x 1.4 and holy rails.... plus a bunch of items I can't think of now. yup hooked!!

without the above my business would not be doing as well as it is, they are tools you need to know how to use at the end of the day, but man does it make a difference using quality built and designed machines!

glad to be a part of the fold.

Hi Seth,

mainly peoples projects and adaptations of Systainers. I like to keep things neat and organised - Festool helps me a lot in that regard.

My first Systainer project will most likely be introducing a small Makita compressor and brad nailer to a Sys5.

Or perhaps you've also spotted the excellent prices I'm getting at my local Nuts & Bolts (http://www.powertool-supplies.co.uk/) Festool dealer  [smile]

Hi Guys from SW Scotland, i have been hovering for a while now looking at all the pictures of peoples work and getting some tips for my new workshop I am in the process of fitting out a new 18'x10' workshop to go with my other 16'x12'. I haven't done too much woodwork at present although i have been collecting a few green tools. I currently have a ts55, Ctl midi, RO150, DF500 and a nice new shiny ks120 still in the box. I am really looking forward to getting properly setup and getting into my first real projects, Peter P kindly sent me the plans for his Kapex stand which i think will make a good first project.

All the best, Lee

Post by: RyanRoberts91 on November 27, 2015, 04:44 PM
Been registered on the FOG for quote a while, have only posted a couple of times.
I am a kitchen specialist and over the last 2 years have upgraded all my tools one by one to festool. I absolutely love it. Makes my enjoyable job twice as enjoyable! I'm self employed and at the moment I just sub contract to one firm. I really enjoy my work and I get never ending satisfaction from fitting someone's dream kitchen (most of the time, we all get bad customers from time to time) i am a time served joiner/ carpenter but my apprenticeship mainly consisted of kitchens and at the moment, 99% of my work is kitchens. I would love to have a workshop one day to manufacture furniture as well as kitchens. I have done a few pieces in my own home including, coffee table, dining table, and I made a bespoke fitted bench seating area for my dining table with built in storage. A few custom wine racks and cabinets for customers which I really like doing. I have all the festools I "need" for my job but there are a few extra toys I would like to have anyway, mainly a domino, MFT3 and CMS table but they will need to wait for a while yet

Great guy by the way, in the British Army.

They need/want a simple butcher block island( 4 legs, bottom shelf and a top) for the kitchen. Obviously it's not feasible for me to build it and ship to them.

PM or email me If anyone is interested in building it for me and we can discuss the details , payment etc.

So far I have been able to convince SWMBO that I needed the TS 55, RO 150, Domino DF 500, MFT/3, OF 1400 and the CTL Midi plus a few clamps and other accessories.

Now I just need some convincing arguments for a Kapex, LR32, MFS, ....

But I guess I won't win that one until the number of finished projects exceeds the number of tools.  She for some reason doesn't count jigs and other tools as projects!

Hi LoftyDave, welcome.
It sounds like you have it bad!! We're not very good for reducing your need for new tools, but like Jobsworth said we are great for excuses.

Mine is the same. Apparently the tables/cupboards/storage in the garage workshop don't count either...  [huh]

Hello all, newly joined, but often browsed, so feel familiar with a few of you guys even though I'm new!

@jmbfestool I absolutely love your van racking, and had a similar idea when planning my T6 racking recently, of have 96mm centre holes on the side walls for clamping awkward items that would otherwise rattle around, but thought it might be too much work and use too many clamps etc. Ended up putting in a flash floor for tracks, APS900 and levels etc instead, and yet to do any racking work for the boxes, so may plagiarise your designs if thats ok.. I don't have a workshop as yet, but like the modular idea for adding/removing boxes. I did a lot of staring into my van also, and currently have my feet resting on 22 300x400mm half inch ply stacked up under the computer table! haha  [big grin]
