Using the pre-sloped pan, what is the largest tile it will support?
May be showing my ignorance again but it seems to smaller tile should be used?

If you don't want to do a lot of cutting and fitting, 2" x2" is about the limit to get the tile to follow the pitches well.

The pictured base is pre-sloped with 8x8's. Everything was laid out and cut to get the water to the drain.

Adjusted price and added another smaller increment.

That is an amazing piece of art - wow.

A well known furniture maker advised me that people need to make an emotional connection with your work in order to be successful in this business.

The director of the Kerr Arts Center told me that she had seen an older woman moved to tears as she rubbed the top of our Alamo table.  This made me feel really proud.

The next day, another lady walked up to it and said, "Huh! A dust catcher."  You can't please everyone.

Yes, I am fortunate to have some good space for my workshop.  My wife comments that I keep expanding my shop and moving her storage to a smaller and smaller area.

Thanks to everyone for your posts and advice.  I will look for a demonstration in my area where I can try the battery one with a power chord, hopefully before my 30 days runs out at the end of the month.  In the meantime,  I will continue to try the one that I have.  I will let you know if I decide to try the battery one. 

Thanks again for your comments and suggestions.

Allen, Let us know what you think after deciding on your purchase and let us know what you think about whatever products you but or if you decide to keep what you already have.

One thing you may want to consider is disc size commonality.  I have a several sanders and keeping an inventory of too many sizes get's expensive.

When you wrote previously about your health issues and the stress and timeframes I was wondering if something like this was on the horizon.  You answered that one.

You're right on the money about what put me back in the hospital.  I tend to be very driven and have been known to overreach on occasion.   [big grin]

I designed a second table in the Nakashima style for the contemporary category so we produced two competition grade pieces in a matter of weeks.  We had a mishap in the shop that damaged the base of the second table the night before delivery.  The top (pictured here) is a slice of Australian Red Gum burl with a carbonized live edge.  We'll make a new base and enter it next year.

I do have a question for you.  You were at Festool back in 2009 for the introductory class with many others here weren't you? Peter

Unfortunately, I've never been to Festool USA for one of their training classes.  That and attending Festool Connect has always been a dream of ours.  What Erich and I have learned about the tools has come from the Festool Owners Group and quite a bit of on the job experience.  We actually did the monthly Festool demos for our local Rockler store for several years until the two parted ways.

Nice. I like the way the reels come apart to quickly transfer a new coil onto them.

I have the 35 gal. container and it's good for a couple hundred BF of lumber depending on how much stock your taking off.  I purchase all lumber rough cut so I have  a lot more chips to collect to get to finished size (I get much straighter stock this way).  I have my barrel on the mobile stand so I can release the quick disconnect and drop the barrel to wheels free to recycle.

Thought there'd be an STI in there somewhere.  Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything....
