Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Kapex UG wing extension question

Thanks for the link. From that topic:
Fun fact: T-Loc SYS1 and Kapex KS-60 are a perfect match...

Not much help, I know. I just wanted to make sure this info is available for someone stumbling across the the thread.

So:
Kapex 120: Classic SYS 1
Kapex 60: T-Loc SYS 1
I stand corrected, sorry for any confusion this might have caused.

Shitty move from Festool though, IMHO, to change this and not be upfront open about it.

It was good on concrete.  When I was goofing around sanding a rough board with the 80 grit paper it came with I felt like I was in a rodeo.  I guess it takes some practice.

Nice. So you like the RO90?  [big grin]

Just a week after I got my RO90 I decided that since almost everything in my workshop is on wheels I should clear it out and redo the concrete stain floor.  So the RO90 got called into duty with 40 grit paper to sand down any rough spots in the concrete or places where I had drips of stuff like polyurethane.  That thing's a beast.

An hour later cleaning almost everything out all by myself:

I don't like the white face either  [sad]

Yes in Canada the main connectors have to be enclosed. If you have to work into that part the power have to be shut down prior to remove that part. That way when you have to replace or add a new breaker you only shut down the main switch and do the work safely. When you have a sub-panel w/o a main switch you have to shut down at the source for any work.

@Gregor - that height consistency was the case with the older style Systainers but the t-locs are slightly taller with their different foot design and you might need a 1/4" or so piece of ply under the Kapex 120.

There was a thread the other day on this here on FOG.
Wait, what?
Didn't notice that. Do you have a link for me, please?

Also your panel "annoys" me.  In that manufactures advertise the panels having an option of white, but good luck ever finding one for sale.  Grey is fine, but it would be nice to easily be able to buy a white deadface / trim cover for them.  Also every time I look at mine and basically any manufacture in the US they all have the knockouts in the corners, none on the middle of the sides.  So then you either have everything jammed in the corner, or you have to drill your own holes like I've done.   Your panels is closer to how I wish they were made/sold here.

On the other hand, it seams Canada require that internal cover around the service connection that panels in the US do not have.  Or at least that seams to be what it looks like code requires based on watching shows filmed in Canada.

It's not code in the US either, just all the NM manufactures realized a few years ago it would be a good idea to make it easy to identify.  Also helps the building inspectors.   I've never seen NM in Blue or Red , thus I was assuming Canada had something going on.  Seams surprising a manufacture would make it unless their was some general industry plan going on.

Quite honestly, it was the first time I saw the blue. As far as I remember the red has been used for a many decades. I don't recall seeing the yellow either.

What's up with the red and blue NM?   In the US we have white (14awg), yellow (12awg). orange (10 awg). I haven't seen or heard of red or blue, is that for 3 wire stuff vs 2 wire?  they don't look big enough to be 6 or 8

Our local code do not specify any color for cables. It's more like a standard where the red used to be for heating 12/2 and the white mostly for everything else. When I pulled the cables it was easier for identification instead of marking each cable. I used the blue for lightning and the yellow 12/2 for supplemental heating. I have a plug on each corners where I can get xtra heating.

Wish you were my neighbor. It cost me over $400 just to get a master electrician to feed a 220V wire from the panel (basement) to my shop (garage). To run the kind of wiring seen in your photos, I'd need to sell blood (again and again...) to cover the expenses.

Be careful with the radiant heater. The thin pull cord could break after heavy use and trying to attach a new cord is not as easy as you may think.

I know exactly what you mean  [scared]. I may look to trade the thin rope for a bead chain eventually.
