Other Tool Reviews / Re: Rolair Airstack
« Last post by Kevin D. on Today at 01:16 PM »
I have a 10 year old JC10.  I installed an app on my phone called 'Sound Meter' and tested them both.  They pretty well came out at the same DB rating. 

One major diff was initial load up time from empty.  Rolair was a minute.  The Cadex SYS4 was 15 seconds.  The fact that even with an overall tank size being larger in the Rolair, with a 60% duty cycle and the ability to run at 100% for 3 a hour span if needed, the Cadex is the winner in this regard.

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Festool Track Saw, Track Issue

Seth- the problem was the bevel not being consistently 90° and that method you shared makes a lot of sense.  I don't have access to a big jointer for jointing the edges so I'm left with the TS55 and a 1950s Delta unisaw to get glue ready joints. I may end up trying that method on a Walnut table top build I have coming up.

I think you misunderstood my post. The machinist square (which is supposed to be square) was off. The WP triangle was dead nuts on.

Ya know I was cutting walnut after I adjusted the blade on my saw and it was a nice rip
Sorry for not specifying; my reply was to @Corwin who posted directly before me and seems to be saying his Starrett combo square was "more square" than his three "guaranteed square for life" machined aluminium Woodpeckers squares.

Don’t get lost in the back of the store.

And what’s the navy systainer?  Can’t be a leftover Pro 5.

I take it you've been there before?

I think it's a Cooltainer. [smile]

While looking for a 20mm router bit, I stumbled upon this. A 1949/1950 Chevy truck fitted with a Bedslide to hold Festool gear.  [cool]

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Festool Track Saw, Track Issue

I think a track saw excels for the tasks for which it was designed. But, precision joinery is very demanding and, perhaps, not the forte of that tool.

Table saws, jointers, and planers are my tools of choice for making gap free joints.

 @Travisaward   Is the problem with the tracks aligning in a straight line when connected? Or that the saw is at a different bevel on different tracks?

     If different bevel .................... unless the wood surface is dead flat any variance in the wood surface will cause the rail to tilt and cause  slightly  varying bevels on the edge. Hardly noticeable for most purposes but frequently not good enough for edge joining. Hence the existence of jointers. But this (see link) method works great for jointing with a track saw.

The date keeps getting pushed out.  The initial release was originally set for April 15th.  It has been slipped out at least three times and the latest estimate that I saw is now June 15th.  Any bets?

I researched the specs and wound up cancelling my pre-order.  While I really like the form factor, the dB rating, CFM, tank size are all inferior to the Rolair JC10 Plus which costs half the price of the Airstack.  I'm looking forward to reviews, but I no longer see an Airstack in my future.

I like the Bimmer in the background... [big grin]

Also very clever of you to move your wife's shoes to the garage to presumably make more room for your own shoes in the closet. [not worthy]
