Here is my fenced sled:
Hi @Corwin Interesting setup. It seems that you have the rail/hinge supports/adaptors at each end. What I'm trying to see here is if I an somehow support the rail without those.

I just watched the Dave Stanton video showing how he made one for his bench Might be the way to go, but quite honestly I'd nearly pay the extra for the full MFT so as not to have to do that  [unsure]

I'm not so sure.  The head of the bolt is rectangular so that it fits into the slot in the bottom of the limit stop.  That seems rather unique.

I called Festool this afternoon trying to get the exact part number.  I got transferred to the service number since the ekat diagram didn't reflect the actual limit stop.  He went at looked at the limit stop that came with a TS75 he had in front of him and he said it looked like the ekat diagram.  Per his request, I emailed him these pictures of the limit stop to service@festoolusa.com:
278728-0278730-1278732-2


He said he was pretty much the only person who checks that email - and then he'd check with some more senior people to see if they know what the deal is with this bolt.

Festool Tools & Accessories / CMS Blade Question
« Last post by Jmacpherson on Today at 04:32 PM »
Seriously thinking of getting the CMS base unit and insert for the TS55 or might go the Dewalt portable route - delayed this purchase long enough.

Back on point, I have the 48t blade and 28t multipurpose blade. I know the 12t panther is meant for ripping.
In thinner material up to say 12mm, can I get away with ripping using the 28t blade or do I need the 12t panther right off the bat?
Or can I get the blade later when its time to rip thicker material?

Thanks

You should be able to go to a industrial hardware store and find something that will work.

Have you called festool service?

Theyll be able to help you out.

Last time i called they connected me to a repair tech and he hooked me up.

I always call festool service if I cant find something at the industrial hardware shop

@Shane Holland DO you guys have the little clamp brackets available separately? The ones with the little bend that fits in the side edge slot.

Woodpeckers site seems to imply that they are but there's no way to order them.

FWIW...I ordered some...they will not work with the MFS without modifications.

What is the answer to the original question about the flange apparently preventing a tight fitting joint?

Festool personnel have now had time to see the question. When will Festool have an official answer?

Rail dogs will not give you such precise cuts as the dogs shown used in their normal manner.

The problem is that as the material thickness being cut gets greater then the offset error of a dog not secured against its collar from below gets greater as well.

If accuracy is not an issue then rails dogs can be used.

Dogs used to determine the position of a guide rail should either be secured from below (as with the Veritas Parf Dogs or TSO Dogs) or have integral securing (as with the UJK Parf Super Dogs).

I am not ashamed of the plug for two of these products as they were each developed to enhance the accuracy of cuts using a guide rail.

So how do you guys that own these and use them with a track saw use them exactly? Do you put a sacrificial board on top of it and then the work piece that youre going to cut? Or use thick, ridge foam as the sacrificial surface?

They also have 2x4 holders that you can use to make a 2x4 cutting table if that works better for your needs. 
That I did not know. Ill have to check that out!

Finishing and Painting / Re: What Primer and Paint for Cabinets?

I'm the person who had the rather abrupt experience at Sherwin Williams.

I called around to some of the BM stores near me and found one that stocks DuraLaq on a regular basis. I think I paid around $75 total for one can of primer and one can of semi-gloss.

They didn't give me the run-around about needing a spray booth or EPA restrictions. In fact, the person I dealt with was very knowledgeable and was able to tell me what needles and air caps to use as a starting point.
