Finishing and Painting / Fuji Offering Free Gun with Q5
« Last post by Gerald_D on Yesterday at 02:57 PM »
I've been pondering a FujiSpray Q4 for a while now, but just saw that they are offering a free gun with purchase of a Q5.  Price-wise:  the Q5 is equivalent to the price of a Q4 and an extra gun.  Is the Q5 worth the extra $$?  Background on what I spray:  today it's exclusively SW Kem Aqua+ clear topcoat, but I'd like to spray paints on furniture if I get a unit that can give a quality finish.  I've been spraying clear topcoat with a Turbineaire HVLP for many years, but never paint, so obviously would have that learning curve as well.

Thanks in advance for any guidance!

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Domino cutter life
« Last post by Jasonj888 on Yesterday at 01:36 PM »

Out of the sizes I find that the 5mm bit is the one that is the weakest of them all in terms of longevity and most prone to chip/crack.
I think they all dull a little fast in oak but replacing the bits is so far between that I hardly remember and that is a good sign for sure. Or bad, considering my memory...   

I might look into CMT bits, don't mind a few extra 5mm bits.

I'm right with you Henrick - the other cutters seems to hold up really well. The 4 mm is more like a drill bit and I've never had a problem with it or an of the others.

Good thought from a couple of you on looking into the CMT cutters. I was stopped mid-project the other night due to a chipped 5 mm, I should just order a 5 mm CMT and keep it on hand.

I do hope that Festool checks into this and at least addresses how the bits are advertised. It sounds funny, but spending 3 cents to cut a domino pocket is too much.

Ask Festool / Re: How to check on registered tools

Can someone please let me know what web site I would use to see what tools I have registered?


I’m wondering the same thing.  When I first made a Festool purchase the web site allowed me to register the tools and also file a copy of the receipts.  It was a great.

Ask Festool / Re: boom arm for CT26– new hose?
« Last post by fignewton on Yesterday at 12:49 PM »
Ahh, next time I will read the description more carefully about the 50mm hose and connecting to the vac’s existng hose.  Since seeing the new flexible hose, I HATE my original hose for most tasks.  Having it up on the boom arm would help tremendously though.  I may get the new hose too.  Thanks all!
I've just started working on a storage solution for my truck, but could easily adopt to a van or trailer (actually it will go into my cargo trailer also).  I'm toying around with some modular units that act as storage and work/bench tops to save space.  I'm going to have some CNC'd like an MFT, some with T-tracks, some with pull out Systainer drawers, and some plain.  They stack flat and lock together, so you only need to add as many as necessary for the task.  Also have a pull out tray in the truck bed for easier access.  One of the main things I'll use them for is a miter saw station.  Anyhow, check out the photos, but just started on this last week, so still working on the details of the design.  Good luck with your Van.
