Finishing and Painting / Re: 3M PPS Series 2 - Fuji
« Last post by Cyisone01 on Today at 06:18 PM »
I was looking at the 3M PPS 2.0 - does it work with the fuji guns?  I have the Q5 with the T70 and T75g.  I am not sure what I should be ordering.  I contacted Fuji and they told me the series 2.0 was not compatible but from your comments above it may be?

I'm with @Cheese.  My first thought was of the old mimeograph machines (which smelled so nice).

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Manufacturing Defect on DF-500 Fence

The bottom line is that if you are unhappy with your tool - for any reason, or no reason at all -during your trial period (which varies in length by country) - you can return it, get an exchange, or contact Festool service in your country.

Festool wants you to take the tool home, get acquainted with it, use it in your situation and be happy.  If not, they either want to make it right, or they want the tool back and you get refunded your money.

What was the cost for all the materials?

It has come out a bit more than I had hoped, the whole thing has come on around £400 ($500), but the handle aluminium and corner pieces were quite expensive, a cheaper alternative would have saved around £50 ($60).

It depends on the cost of materials where you are for reference I use KJN Aluminium in the UK, this would give you a comparison point to assess the costs anywhere else. Ebay might also prove a better starting point.

It's worked out about a 35% saving, but that wasn't really the point, I wanted to build one myself.

Brilliant!  Have you modified the rail bracket and fence so that it can fit on those extrusions?

No, I  tend to use bench dogs with rails, I haven't found a need for the bracket and fence,  it shouldn't be a major issue but I'll have a look.

I don‘t want to put Surfix-Oil on the flames here... ;)

BUT, I recently made a business trip to the US and used the journey to acquire some tools.
INCLUDING the brilliant Milwaukee Rover Flashlight!
@six-point socket II
It runs on 2xAA, has two Magnets and a clip.
I love it as an addition to the two battery powered Syslites. :)

Snip.
 I know some use the narrow mortise setting but I usually have mine set on wide so being perfect on your pencil mark is not so critical.

Of all the floating tenon projects I have done since acquiring the DF500, only in three types of joinery work where "perfect" pencil-line alignments with the machine were needed:

1) in a mortise & tenon joint where joinery strength will be compromised if the fit is not tight (both mating pieces therefore must be milled in the narrow setting; narrow to wide settings won't work)

2) using the intersecting-lines technique to cut mating mortises & tenon joint. The alignments must be spot-on.

3) Mitre/bevel joint (including three-way mitres) for alignment as well as for strength.

Everything else, I use narrow to wide settings on mating pieces (except for the first mating mortises which are both cut in the narrow setting for alignment purposes).

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.
