The joinery is definitely not something that I'm looking to showcase.

It sounds like the positioning of the joints is most important for a drawer where there will be actual pulling forces applied - that makes total sense to me now that you pointed that out.  In this case, it's a static box that shouldn't be receiving any kind of pulling, well maybe there will be some force when the hinged lid is lifted up, but overall it's not that important.

@jobsworth many years ago I attended the fundamentals class in Las Vegas.  At that time taking videos was not allowed.  Hopefully things have changed now.

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Kapex Up In Smoke

While on the subject of Kapex, has anyone heard or seen a release date for the new Kapex in the USA? I apologize if this has already been discussed...

lets say you are making a face frame and need to rip lots of boards at 2 1/2".  Do you use the table saw and get the job done in a 1/2 hour or do you make do with the parallel guides and the narrow stock adapter and get the job done in 3 or 4 hours ?

I also thought I could get rid of my table saw after 2+ years of not turning it on. My last project still would not be finished (ok, thats an exaggeration)  if I only used the parallel guides.  Yes the guides will do the job, but "maybe" not as accurately as the table saw and certainly not as fast.

 Now, I am thinking sell the Unisaw and buy that small SawStop Jobsite, that will do the narrow stock easily.

Ts75 rips very clean on a cms. Only wish is for a zero clearance insert and the cs splinter guard.

Nice setup!  ;^)

You can easily make a zero clearance for repetitive cuts. Take a price if ½ “ MDF and slide through to cover the knife and blade. Clamp it down and have at it!  I don’t do it that often, but will on occasion for certain projects.

Where abouts do you live. I just moved up to Kenwood from Alexandria and I am in the process of setting up my shop.

Still in Anderson Twp. Built a house on the river a few years back. Are you looking to keep the kit handheld or moving more into stationary?

Cheers. Bryan.

I'll suggest joining it such that the front (whether it's the wide side or the narrow side) is totally displayed, UNLESS your joinery is something that you want to display.  That said, when you're making drawers, there's much more joint strength required in the joints that hold the front of the drawer to the sides, and in this case, using dominoes from the sides adds significantly more strength, although it makes the ends of the sides more visible.  This usually doesn't matter if you're adding on drawer fronts that cover the drawer box.  In any case, MDF doesn't have the overall strength of hardwood, so use more dominoes than you would with hardwood.  Make sense?   [smile]
