So you really mean powder coated or anodized aluminum?

Festool Tool Problems / Re: CMS Switch
« Last post by tjbnwi on Yesterday at 05:58 PM »
Are you sure you have power to the unit? It is a magnetic switch, it will not close without power to the switch.

Incase of a power outage the CMS will not restart when power is restored until the switch is pushed.

I have the earlier Basis unit and the switch has a fuse that I have managed to blow several times with the OF2200 and a power feed.

Hi mahou,

You have asked some really valid questions. My CS70 sits on the base that I made and I have bolted the legs to the side table. I removed the folding legs and used the attachment points of those to bolt the CS70 to the side table. I used a spacer between the CS70 and the front table to get the track that I cut in the side table for the Incra and the blade parallel. I will try and take some photos to make this a little clearer but its a bit late here now to do it tonight. I know you can adjust the Incra fence to be perpendicular to the blade very easily but I am a bit pedantic that way.

In terms of cuts, I am very happy with the results I get. I have cut many 4 and 8 sided boxes and frames using this system and it works for me. the joints are tight and do not need 'fixing' with a shooting board (yawn!). I do most of my work on a cnc router so any 'sneaking up' on a fit has become a drag for me..In fact I have been quite surprised at how often I have removed the Incra fence from the table and replaced it and it has maintained its 90 degree position relative to the blade.

The most irritating thing about the CS70 for me now (which has nothing to do with this subject) is the blade angle offset from the parallel fence which is supposed to reduce or eliminate kick-back. It really irks me that if you are ripping strips of wood it leaves a mark on the piece to the left of the blade. I have not had a chance to see if anyone has sorted this out but if not, it may be a new project...And festool already supplies the parallel or rip fence in a two parts so that the top part can be moved to achieve the same outcome....grr!

Sorry, I have a T70 gun. I'm probably going to pick up one of the cheaper 2 quart pressure pots soon. I'm not spraying a lot or that often, but the 1 quart size just isn't quite enough when I do.

Pot is easy with the T-70.

Welcome!

Wood Werks is having their Expo event from today through Sunday.  I'm up in the Cleveland-Akron area so I've only been to one of their expos, but it was worth going.  They pack a lot of action in a small space.

If you don't mind a drive, Hartville Hardware has a pretty largeTool Sale & Expo twice a year and the next one is scheduled for February 16 & 17.  Festool has a good presence at both events.

Have Fun!

I don't use an external compressor on the cup, but I do route turbine pressure directly to it.

Most cups 10-12 psi would be the max you could/should apply.

Other option is a pressure pot. It would be a little awkward with the T-75 gun.
