I have a Festool saw from the UK - 50hz.  Works fine on USA power but I'm sure I voided the warranty by changing the plug.

Apparently using 60hz tools on 50hz is not such a good idea though.
Not an issue as the tools are rated for both

A couple of examples of Parf system holes and a top that will get at least 4 location holes

Is that mahogany ply?
No it's a cheap local 20mm ply about ฿600 per sheet, I do have some really nice hardwood ply with a good thickness top ply but that cost ฿4,600 per 20mm sheet I can't tell you the species but maybe there is someone who can translate

I have had a DD Deluxe on my CT22 for 5 or 6 years with no issues at all. Wouldn't even consider going back to the standard CT without a cyclone...

Any reason the new cyclone wouldn’t work on my older ct22?

Same here.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Mft/ of1400 worth the plunge?

In my opinion the use of the Festool routers on the MFT system has been a far overlooked situation.  The ability to mark a center line, set up stops and know that whatever you are routing will be 90 degrees to the long edge is pretty cool in my mind.

What is cooler in my mind is that if you plan your work and start with a piece that would be equal to uprights plus the saw kerf you would route all the grooves and then rip that piece in half and be guaranteed groove accuracy.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Mft/ of1400 worth the plunge?
« Last post by Jarrett on Today at 07:22 PM »
I do a good amount of cabinets and furniture and crafts...I’m always looking for a faster way to break down goods/cut rabbets and dado.   I’ve got a ts75, domino, and multiple sanders already, but was wondering your opinion on getting the mft and 1400 router.  I find myself cutting/dadoing small bits of oak, cherry, and sycamore for apothecary cabinets and things of the like.   Would this setup be worth it even if I have a good cabinet saw, Jessm router table, and old greenie radial arm?
Thanks!
Signed,

I was given the LR32 rail in error when I bought my TS55.  :-)  However, I have a bosch 1617 EVS and can't afford OF1010 (and don't need) router. 

The clamp screws on the LR32 plate that hold the router might be able to catch your router - or if not maybe you could drill some hole in the plate to pick up the baseplate holes in your router. That's the way the OF1400 attaches.

The 1617 EVS fits the LR32 with a simple mod.  A search should turn up several older topics on this.

Festool How To... / Re: Conturo inlet roller-How to clean it
« Last post by tjbnwi on Today at 07:00 PM »
I just peel it off. It does not seam to stick well to the roller.

You may want to turn the glue feed down a little also.
