@ERG if that panel pictured above is the panel you are going to use, seriously consider getting a new bigger one. If you are going to the expense of running 100 amps out there, you will really need to have a panel with more breaker spaces. If you add any 240 circuits you'll quickly run out of spaces in that panel. Main breaker panels are relatively cheap. You'll use the main breaker as a local disconnect.

Festool Tools & Accessories / New Mobile workshop MW 1000

New Mobile Workshop available from October

Of all the new Festool items (hitting europe first I think) I am most interested in the mobile workshop. Looks like festool's version of Timothy's (aka Benchworks) MF-TC which I always liked. Last summer I invested in Peter Parfitt's Parf guide and a couple of sawhorses but like the idea of having it all as one rolling station.

Anybody else interested? has a crazy price though going by the RRP.

Yeah... I can't wait to see how much 150 ft of 1/3 direct bury cost.

Don't really need a dado. You could simply place a front fence between the jig's base and the MFT's fence. And, instead of the MFT's stock fence, replace with a narrow (could be around 2" or so) strip of material the thickness of your jig's base (or less) that runs the length of your MFT. My fence is built off of such a piece that spans beyond the length of my MFT -- it runs under the guide rail and provides support behind the replaceable insert.

I was unimpressed with the toenailing of the Airstrike Brad nailer.  I used it once before I traded it for 3 30 packs of Gennesee Light!  Bought a Paslode and have been nailing happily ever after!  Pneumatic-like power and no delay.

Ryobi and Home Depot want you to spend more to get the angled 16 gauge driver for toe nailing. None of the battery cordless nailers are particularly good at toe nailing in 2x4 material.

If I was using it for Toe nailing dimensional lumber I would have stuck with an air compressor model.  The Paslode cartridges aren’t very cheap in Canada. 

I’m surprised your didn’t get the Hitachi canister based unit.  It’s been the favourite of reviewers for several years running.

I know this is an old thread but - how do you move the guide rail when it's locked height-wise (black things down)? Doesn't that lock it to the track and it can't be moved?

I have had trouble perfectly squaring mine because after doing so I have to change the height.

I wish Festool would have designed something that could move while locked height-wise (and then locked from sliding w/ the same black knob).

FYI to all I received mine and like them a lot. I feel a lot more confident that the fence isn't moving when I knock it. Would buy again. Shipping was good to and I got mine in the US (shipped from UK).
