Other Tools & Accessories / Re: Bosch to Compete Against Saw Stop

It's always a mystery to me, if you need a new saw and the saws with safety features cost about the same as saws without and are also very high quality tools, why you wouldn't go with the safe one. Maybe even if you don't need a new saw. We all can make mistakes no matter how careful we are. I guess everyone has their priorities. Mine are ensuring I keep my fingers even if I happen to lose concentration or make a mistake one day.

@Bohdan - glad somebody on this forum keeps an eye on me and saving me from further embarassment [embarassed]
of course 32mm x 3 still equals 96mm (even at TSO [wink]) and our Triangles are designed to integrate with MFT/3 and other worktops using this pattern.
thanks for catching this !

You might find this information helpful. I see some parts lists which should give an idea of how the arm balances the weight of the lamp.

Finishing and Painting / Re: Finishing Veneer ... For A Bathroom

I have oak wainscoting with black stain my bathroom.  My bathroom has no vent and the wainscoting is maybe 2' from the tub.

I used three coats of General Finishes High Performance and that has been sufficient.  After three years, the finish still looks great.

Best,
Adam

9-fingered friends...that reminds me of a former co-worker I recently chatted with.

He had a tablesaw injury last Oct. (or summer) that required a trip to the ER and over a dozen of stitches to his finger. It was a painful experience to him and it took a long time for the finger to completely heal. His wife wanted him to get a SawStop, but after weighing how much woodworking he would still want to do, he decided to go with a Festool tracksaw.

So the circular saw + track is another option out there (especially for sheet work or large workpieces). For large sheets, I use a saw guide.

BTW: the 20mm holes in our PTR-18 are all on 92mm centers

Hans

So are you saying that they won't work with the festool MFT which have holes on 96mm centres?

@ShadyMaple  - using the PTR-18 as a pattern would be technically possible but would degrade a precision tool to just a precision triangle. To use a tool as a drill bushing you should really have hardened bushings. Aluminum is the wrong material for that.
BTW: the 20mm holes in our PTR-18 are all on 92mm centers

We are believers in using precision where it matters and can be bought at low cost. Some of our customers have used our free worktop CAD downloads and for about $ 150.00 incl. material had a commercial shop CNC rout them a 4x8 or smaller top with precision 20mm holes on precise 92mm centers.

If you are only using the 20mm holes to place clamps then precision doesn't matter a whole lot.

Alex  - all U.S. vacs (except the auto clean version) are HEPA certified.

CT SYS, Mini, Midi, 26, 36, and 48 all come with HEPA filters and certification as standard.  Almost no one buys the 36ac without a Planex and HEPA filter on that would be a liability.

They do buy a lot of ct26's though.  A long with the Midi, it's probably the most popular.
