Festool How To... / Attaching router table to mft3
« Last post by teocaf on Today at 10:01 PM »
I’ve only seen the 2-legged Festool router table attached to the short side (in-line, or as a continuation) of the mft3.  Is there any reason why it can’t be attached to one of the long sides?

A cross-cut sled allows to you to make cross cuts on pieces that may be too small for a mitre gauge. In addition, better dust collection can be had using the cross-cut sled with a dust shroud like this: https://1uscx04b9e331agpck24eteh-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/Crossclut-Sled-Dust-Shroud-Lead.jpg

Other Tools & Accessories / Crosscut sled verse miter gauge
« Last post by miclee15 on Today at 09:42 PM »
I’ve never had anything better then a portable table saw and now I’m upgrading to a cabinet saw.   I’m trying to understand the pros and cons of a sled verse a miter gauge.  I purchased a Incra Miter gauge and now wondering if I need to make or buy a sled.

Wow, excellent job! I'm curious what parts were not sourced from the profile supplier?

I’ve used https://www.semproducts.com/ for automotive interior plastics. They offer primers and adhesion promoters. Might be worth looking at for your project.

Thank you Seth for the quick response.

I'm thinking two colors, not too intricate, kind of like some strips.  I don't want to give the design away, but we are getting close to football season.   [cool]

This is mostly a for fun project, not necessarily something to last forever or even a specific performance requirement.

For the price and what Festool is I didn't expect excess casting flash to be left over.. I should have taken a picture but oh well.

My replacement will be here Sunday and ill roll with it

Oops, math foul. .04 <1/16

The one I normally use is 1/16

Curious @Cheese why you use the thicker cut off wheel for this? Does this give better control?

Surface concrete so it’s smooth if you want to cap it with stone.

I use my Milwaukee 18 volt with a .040” thick cut-off wheel to cut bolts and screws to unusual lengths.

Maybe you misread? I don’t know of a thinner wheel other than some small diameter disks for Dremel.

The old spark trap was discontinued.

No info on a possible replacement.
