UJK Tech Parf Guide and bits: advice for order
« on: December 10, 2018, 05:22 PM »
I’m in Australia (strewth), about to build a Paulk workbench. I’m going to use Peter Parfitt’s parf guide system to do the worktop.

We don’t seem to be able to get the Mark II parf guide here in Aus at the moment, so it looks like I’ll have to get it from Axminster in the UK. Thought I’d run my order thoughts past you guys to see if I’m forgetting anything useful - may as well get a few Axminster-only bits while I’m buying internationally.

So:
  • UJK parf guide system MarkII
  • Dogs - I’m going to assume the UJK flavours are a perfect fit for anything built with the jig, so was thinking of a couple of super dogs, and maybe a couple of 12mm and 50mm dogs. 6 in all plus the dogs that come with the jig should give me something to start with.
  • Some Axminster trade quick release clamps - look the same as the festool QR’s, but nearly half the price (Link)
  • parf dog rail clips

They’re out of stock of the parf chamfer tool, but they’re available here in Aus, as are the TSO guide rail squares, which I think will be my next purchase.

Anything else I should think about for setting up a basic cutting station on my Paulk bench? Basic hobby work, building stuff out of rescued/recycled wood, and fixing up the olde house.

Hi. You might want to consider the dust collection hood unless you plan on making your own. Keeping the holes free from debris is supposed to improve accuracy...and well save a lot of brushing and blowing...lol
I ordered mine from Axminster for same reason, I'm in Canada and there were none in NA to be found....shipping was very reasonable...not sure about to OZ.

Good point, Greg. Although at AU$49-ish, it's a pricey addition. Doesn't look too hard to 3D print, so I may do that instead

@Bernmc  you might want to look at John Lafferty dust hood. He is from Australia and make a 3D print dust hood for the Paft guide. It is very well done and sturdy. I got mine and it fit perfectly on the Parft guide first gen. I would think it is the same fit for the Mark II. Look for him on yellowboxshed

you might want to include a split stop collar for the bit,got my mk2 set a couple of weeks ago and it was sent with a conventional collar,axminster sells the split stop separately
split stop collar

you might also care to look at axminsters quick change system of bits,they are both centrotec and conventional 1/4 hex compatible

Hadn't picked that up @skinee - thanks. Would have thought the split collar would have been the default considering the price of the kit...

I have ordered my Mk2, and I am in Auckland.

I am yet to make my tabletop though. tinkering the idea of making it out of Saligna I have lying around...

I also ordered a few dogs

the purpose of my table will be for sanding, routing, dominoing. I dont intend to do any cutting on the table top. I have a large panel saw for cutting (sliding carriage is a monstrous 3.8m long, need a clear run of 7.6m tip to tip)
