Festool How To... / Re: Festool 500 Cutter Alignment
« Last post by jobsworth on Today at 01:07 AM »
I attached a link to festool TV. There are a series of videos about the domino. To me I had a big learning curve just to understand the basics of it and that includes even going to festool training. I finally got it sorted. But here are a lot of videos on using the domino

I bought my first tools back in ‘07. Midi $425 and Rotex 150 $440 if I’m remembering it correctly.

A little while ago I saw a broken midi sell on eBay for $200. It did not run and still went for decent money.

I’m glad I have almost one of everything they sell that I need but the constant price  increases across everything is getting out of hand.

Festool How To... / Re: Back panel rabbet
« Last post by Mario Turcot on Yesterday at 11:59 PM »
You didn't say how large the cabinet was, but here's a method I've used on smaller cabinets. Took a straight piece of 2x4, jointed so two adjacent faces are flat and square, and clamped it to the edge of the cabinet. Used that to support the router with a rabbeting bit, cutting one side at a time. The back is cut to size and the corners cut with a radius to match the rabbeting bit - 5/8" radius in my case. It's actually quite quick as I use a spring clamp initially to get the 2x4 close until I can get the clamps on it. The back panel is cut to size, the corners rounded using router and jig and the panel glued and nailed in place.

That's a nice tip @tomp I took note :) The cabinets are 57"x26" ish

@bnaboatbuilder The cabinets are not assembled yet. I am making the rabbet before assembly.

@rst I ordered the Amana Tool 49350 Multi-Rabbet Six Different Rabbet Depths 1-3/8 D x 1/2 CH x 1/2 Inch SHK Router Bit.

Quick update, I made drawers first since I figure it was going to be the most tedious part. There we go 25 drawers ready to get a nice finish. I am very happy how accurate it turns out, especially on that scale. I never been able to get something that accurate before.

Thanks for the tip.

I see nothing on FTUSA site that specifically states the outdoor oil is food safe.  If one is using this product for one’s own purposes there are no restrictions on materials that can be used (conscience is the guide), BUT if one is catering to the public that is another story. I would not use any material for areas of food contact unless I had on file the proper MSDS to protect me.

If it was like that in cardboard and plastic wrap; the shipper was seemingly trying to hide that they dropped/damaged it.  I had a slightly smaller FS41) delivered to an ABF terminal; and it had clear markings about which end was up with little cardboard pyramids on top indicating that nothing should be forked on top of it.

On Sam's advice, I picked it up at the terminal instead of opting for lift gate (because he says the lift gate is where most damage happens) and they forked it onto a drop-deck trailer that I got from Sunbelt rentals without incident.

Admirable that you continued to use the saw for that length of time.

6yrs? That admirable point is an understatement. I would have given up in 6 months or so in such circumstances as described by the OP.

Finishing and Painting / Re: Help on Spraying BM Advance

I'm just saying this tongue in cheek, but for that $6K, I'd just repaint everything the client already has in a new paint to match the new cabinets.
