Feskit accessories - anyone using?
« on: March 12, 2017, 06:24 PM »
According to a search of the forum the intriuging accessories being produced by Feskit have never been discussed. Is anyone using any of their products? I'm particularly curious about the functionality and robustness of their MFT/3 Protectors, MFT Systainer Workstation tops and Star Dog Clamps. Thoughts?

Never even heard of them. Looks like just a bunch of gimmicky parts that people all over the net 3D print or those with a CNC cut out at home. But I guess if you dont have access to a 3D printer or CNC router thats where companies like this find their niche.
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!

I'd like to have some of the top protectors but they apparently don't ship international. Have you seen these offered by a vendor in the US?

Thanks

I use the TS55 insert (the one that covers the blade change hole to increase dust extraction) and find it to be well made and thought out. I'd certainly buy one again.

I also picked up the hose clips that are meant to keep a power cord attached to said hose and found them pretty useless as the power cord would invariably snag on something and pop out of the clip. I ended up going for a plastic sleeve for hose + cord which works infinitely better.

Jack - According to their website,  Feskit ships worldwide. For instance, two sets of top protectors, less the 10% discount currently on offer & shipped to the U.S., will set you back ~US$47.42 at today's exchange rate.

Yeah, Tiny they emailed me and there was a problem with the ordering side of website. It was fixed the next day and I ordered two sets of the stand off dogs and they are at the PO. I will pick them up tomorrow.
