Festool Jigs & Tool Enhancements / Re: Dado jig for the OF-1010 needed
« Last post by Gregor on Yesterday at 11:00 PM »
The FS-OF 1000 can be adjusted to be slop free on the rail, there should be some screws that you should be able to locate when looking at the underside of it.

Why couldn't you use the plastic foot?

Optimal gear also depends on size of workpiece, a MFS could do the trick for smaller pieces while on a rail will work for long ones.

Festool How To... / Domino for window sashes
« Last post by MVWood on Yesterday at 10:57 PM »
I just got commissioned for a job to build 10 sets of wood window sashes. I was able to grab one of the existing sashes to use as a template. Of course these sashes being 80 yrs old are made with through tenon joints. Out of curiosity would domino joints work for this type of construction or should I stick to the traditional mortice and tenon joinery?

I will probably put two quick disconnects through the top. I have to brainstorm on that  [cool]

Just thinking on this, the board between the tracks is just a filler strip. So if you ran a manifold system in that space or allowed the hoses to coil & uncoil (partially hidden) in that space, that may tidy up the hose issue.

Think plumbing from the pump directly up into the filler space and then branch out from there. Just an idea. [big grin]

Quick disconnects are you're friends.  [smile]

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Another Kapex Bites the dust. Again.
« Last post by Cheese on Yesterday at 10:30 PM »
Because EVERY OTHER TOOL MADE BY EVERYBODY ELSE lasts for endless years on 110V in the US, and we don't need to retrofit the largest consumer market in the world over one bad product.

Amen...and that was a great statement...certainly made my day.

As an aside, I own a Milwaukee Holeshooter drill purchased by my father in 1948. He used it every day on the job in the HVAC industry until he retired in 1985. It's had 4-5 sets of brushes installed but it still works to this very day. It's been dropped from scaffolding and been swung by its cord. It still survives...it still works like when it was new. There's a lesson to learn here.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Ks60

Now that the new kapex is 4 lbs heavier at 51 lbs that’s another compelling reason the ks60 is interesting. I hope some of the 4 lbs is beefier armature.

Do we know the weight of the new one.  The old one was 50.

4lbs of armature would mean they could move the wattage up a magnitude.    No matter, i'd be shocked if Festool doesn't throw everything they can at making sure the motors are solid.

Here's a great shot of it's strong suit...try going through that tight scaffold opening with a conventional 80 pounder.

Person is just showing off.  If he takes the saw up there lets see him drag a turning lathe for some porch spindles or a cabinet saw for cutting some plywood up there too.  Be consistent!  [big grin]

@Cheese There you go!

That's slick Mario...and also SICK as they say in the motor-head community. [big grin] [big grin]  Me likey!!!

Is that octopus of tubing a problem? It would be nice if you could somehow bundle that to be out of the way.  [smile]

One of my mantras that I regularly repeat on a weekly, almost daily basis is that:

I HATE electrical cords
I HATE wires
I HATE hoses.

So for me going cordless is pure bliss. That's my end game. [smile]

Pretty much the same feeling about wires and hoses  [mad]

That's my next challenge. I want the bases easy to remove and put back. I will probably put two quick disconnects through the top. I have to brainstorm on that  [cool]

To elaborate; when working with sheetgoods there is usually no need for a rip capacity greater than 65cm as a standard sheet is 122 or 125. 62,5cm effectively halves that, and you can usually buy half size sheets to begin with. If you would like a greater range you're probably considering crosscuts and for this an accessory like the TSO GRS-16 is great.

Additionally the main reason for doing such cuts is going to be cabinets, which are going to have sides generally in the ~600mm range.  You want to hold them all the same.

You can cut off from the other side to go "wider" but you aren't going to have the precise control on the width of the working peices as the sheet goods are never perfect in form.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: TS55 vs. TS75
« Last post by DeformedTree on Yesterday at 10:16 PM »
Michael, you and DeformedTree are my kind of people, saws...let me count the ways.  Makita was the starting point for me, got a 75 as the Makita couldn't handle 3/8" acrylic and polycarbonates.  Got recon 55 to stay with my MFT.  Got the HKC for basic stud and stair stuff.  Bought the TSC 55 as I have a bunch of batteries for other tools and its way more convenient for away from shop work.  Still have my PC sawboss, 8 1/4" SKil for concrete work, 10 1/4" Milwaukee...just because.  Jezz, putting this done in black and white almost makes me think I may have a problem.  After all I still have the Makita.

I think my path was standard.   Corded 7 1/4 like everyone buys.  Then I needed a big saw so bought the Milwaukee 10 1/4,  then was looking for something small, bought a bare tool 6 1/4".  Then the TS55 next will almost certainly be a TS 75.  Forgetting others, it's always good to have ones around for nasty jobs like cutting concrete and stone.  Also good for lending out tools.  I have a collection of corded tools that are basically folk neighbors and friends to borrow.
