Nouveau membre de la France. New member from France
« on: August 17, 2014, 07:02 AM »
hello there,


excuse my bad English, but the school is far away, and so when I was young for the job I had to travel a lot, now is no longer the case and it quickly loses foreign languages ​​when you do not practical!
So thank you google translate to help me!

I'm Eric, 51, Newbie.

Your forum is very interesting, it will enable me to resume the practice of English!

I am from a small country of France, but I live 40 minutes from Germany (Festool), 45 minutes from Luxembourg, 50 minutes and 2 hours belgium Switzerland.

In 2010, I knew nothing in tools! To cut wood could do with anything, and it was neither done nor do!

Then the decision or continue to do anything, or have the means!

I created my little forum starting in 2011 (I am currently translating a few days ago) and had the desire to also video of someone starting out. Show that we can dare to try, and power without knowledge of carpenter or cabinetmaker to make things happen.

First problem a very small space. For me and my friend (who does fretwork saw with Excalibur) we have about 10/11 m square,
4.3 inch!

So no stationary machine, so have to find solutions and Power is ultimately the only solution.

Thus, on the advice of some forum member French I heard of Festool. Having no significant finances, I could go to other types of low-end machines, but as I Festool team.

Corner videos:
It's as much stuff to help beginners more than me.
It's also stuff (being dyslexic) to help me work better.
This is also when I have a worry (too much or Option Option which are not) find solutions to my problems cutouts of milling, and other problems.

Gradually I advance! Today what I miss is being able to work with a carpenter or cabinetmaker to learn a lot more.
Providing have skills!

My latest acquisition, the LS 130 - Duplex!

Other things I Festool:
Rotex 90, Rotex 150 OF 1400, TS 75, C12, Carvex (PS 400), MFT / 3 CTL26AC, Domino DF 500, DF 700 Domino, MFS 400, 700 MFS, MFS Track, Rail FS of various sizes and accessories for all tools. And 19 systainer ! tools and Options

My Future purchases as possible in order of priority:
OF 2200, CS 70, TI 15, MKS 700 + CMS CMS / OF, EC ETS 150/5 EQ ...

In all happy to come your way and thus be able to learn many things cases.

In the pleasure of future exchanges with you all a good Sunday!

Hello,


I'm Editing a new video (video 190) for the blade change stand with more details and explain specially for the FOG.

I will finish it perhaps today. And this is for me the beginning of the bi lingual video (French/english) !
All the further video will be Bi lingual !

For my site this is for instance only little part in bi-lingual. I will do for most of the site, week after week !

take care of us

Video editing is continued… not finishing… About 60/70 % finish.

But one question :
I use in my video the Domino and for my project I use the 4 mm cutter…
And during my look on Festool USA I didn't so this 4 mm Cutter.

In France we find :
"DOMINO 4x20, 5x30, 6x40, 8x40, 8x50, 10x50 mm et fraise DOMINO pour tailles 4, 5, 6, 8 et 10"

Shoot! I read this earlier and was going to respond, but never got back to it.

 [crying]

Well, for people who read this in the future, let me also point out that the 4mm cutter comes in the Domino DF 500 Tenon Assortment - 498899 - along with four other cutters. From the Festool USA website:

The Domino DF 500 Tenon Assortment includes 5 Cutters, Domino Assortment Systainer, and 1060 tenons.
• Tenon assortment: 4 x 20mm (450), 5 x 30mm (225); 6 x 40mm (150); 8 x 40mm (100); 8 x 50mm (75); 10 x 50mm (60).
• Cutter assortment: D4mm (1), D5mm (1); D6mm (1); D8mm (1); D10mm (1).

Hope that helps!

Welcome to the FOG.  Great to have you here Eric.  I have watched a lot of your videos on youtube and they are great.  The video that was posted here on the FOG about you making an extension for your mft is the one I'm interested in.  In that video you are drilling 20mm holes in the extension using a router and a regular guide rail.  You are spacing the hole with a little gizmo that you stick in the holes in the mft to drill the next hole in the extension.  I'm interested in the little gizmo and how you use it with the guide rail and router.  Hope you can translate all this.  Any help would be great.

Keep up the good work, looking forward to more of your videos.

Yes I like also this !

It s sure that some tool mark use our ideas, but doesn't matter. Because at the end, our ideas came back to us.
Exemple Festool are about 2.500 peoples in Germany and around the Word !
Bosch are juste in France for Tools division, about 2.000 ! (Bosch are about 640.000 peoples)

So For me to share is the best thing ! Some people prefer to keep, me not !

See you later for your request ! I will take pictures !

I like the Sir Winston Churchill quote "an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty".  Even if we have trouble talking to each other, with pictures, dimenions, and  videos we can figure out what someone is trying to get across to us.

Thanks so much Eric.  Like I said in my post before even if the language is different pictures are worth a 1000 words.  Now from looking at the pictures I know exactly how the little gizmo (for lack of a better name) works.  I know it probably doesn't matter but what is the center distance from the pin to the back of the gizmo that the rod butts up against?

Again thanks for the pics.  I can see this making it much easier to make an mft type top.

You can return to my download page, and edit a new picture.
If I understand correctly your question, I draw a line to show you !

The right way is to be in the hole center with the gizmo (I like the name !) to be right on the center with the Bit for doing the new hole !

Best things,

Thanks again.  If I understand this concept, it really doesn't matter if the router is a little off of right on center because you are using the holes of the mft top as a template, so the holes will be spaced perfectly just a little off from the top.  Am I making myself clear?  The hole spacing will be 96mm, the next row of holes will just have to be 96mm from the first set of holes.  That should be easy to do by using a 96mm spacer to move the guide rail. 
I see all this in my head, now I just need to put it to use.
Pictures to come.

I like this a lot. I thought about something similar but gave up. Basically the same little attachment to drop a dog in a hole in the exact center of a block like that. I was going to use a Parf dog so it could drop through both the spacer block and the MFT. Now I feel like I HAVE to make it. Just to prove it would work and I am not crazy!!!

Thanks Eric, glad to see you here. I have watched your CMS TS 75 video several times. Glad to see that setup working very well!

au revoir!  Bryan.

Yes the Festool system is great!
Then it must indeed be seen as a starting point, because we all have different needs.
And as how to work better is a big plus! Because then when we are right project to have things on hand, and when things are at best is a comfort!
In the coming weeks I will continue to change my workshop for optimized passing and catching suction hoses.

Happy to be with you!

Just ordered the CMT router bit that Eric uses to cut holes for his extension.  I ordered it from Tom at Tool-Home. If your interested it's the 20mm CMT 174.200.11  Tom can fix you up.

YES This^!  Tom is my go to guy for CMT and Festool.  He has gone out of his way several times to get me CMT product that is not stocked in the USA.  At least for CMT, NAINA is now not applicable with Tom.  My last CMT order through Tom was drop shipped to my door directly from Pesaro Italy.

In 174 series I many bits and it's really find to use.
You can see in a Older video without English.



In this video I use Two difference bits ! Exemple 8 and 16 or like the video 20 and 10. It's giving me a 5 mm groove.
Like this I can keep MFS settings, and just change plunging settings and to do the two grooves of the frame much easier.
