They say you can never have enough clamps; for me, I can never have enough wheel marking gauges. I would be more than happy to add the fourth (or 40th anniversary?!) wheel gauge to my collection. [big grin]

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Warped Track saw rails
« Last post by rst on Today at 06:34 PM »
When I bought my recon 55 a couple years ago the rail was off by about 3mm on the last 20".  Uncle Bob gave me Festool's #  They were great, three days later I had a replacement and they did not want the warped one back. I discover the discrepancy when I joined my two 55s together and it ran off of the 8020 extrusion that I used to ensure my joined rails were straight.

I am done except putting finish on the extensions and cutting the sacrificial fillers for them. Rockler's had push release full extension slides which worked well on the drawers. I used Incra track which was pretty deep. It works with Festool sliding clamps. i think when I replace this top I will go to a 3/4" material, because there are some bench dogs that work better with 3/4 " thick material. It was a cool project and now I am planning to do the adjustable height multi function cart. I made my first threaded wooden insert to see if I would need to go with the carriage bolts instead, but I think I can make the wooden option.

I love the little tool rack, does that fit in the systainer?

Been there, done that.

The new marking gauge (or the anniversary gauge: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=69871&cat=1,42936,69871) has a different design that prevents the gauge from rolling.

For my old gauge, I changed the knob, and it no longer rolls off the bench (image).

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Am I being a nitpicking jerk?

I received my TS55 via UPS and the insert arrived damaged, along with the foam block on the top ripped off, yet it was pretty well packaged. Turns out my freight was involved in a train crash, which they clearly stated for a reason it was delayed.  Figured it was a shipping issue not a Festool issue so I never pursued it. Yes I would still like a new insert, but I don't expect Festool to pay for it.

I have been using a triple tap on mine for a long time without any issues...other than forgetting to switch the hose over. DOH! Really want to set up an automatic gate system.

USA so 110Volt, but I am sure you can get something similar.

Festool How To... / Re: Jigsaw blades (icon) legend?

There used to be a Jigsaw Blade selector page, but it was written out of the new website: https://www.festoolusa.com/jigsaw-blade-selector.html.  Is there an updated version of this @TylerC  or @Festool USA ?

Failing that, you can look at the specs on the individual blade pages on the Festool website and it will tell you each one's capabilities.  Which particular icons are you looking to translate btw?

The old blade selector page actually didn't have a legend for the icons either. (It had the icons, but they were pretty confusing there as well.) I'll see if I can find something.

@threesixright - To echo @ear3's question, are there any particular icons you're looking for help with? It might be easier for me to start with those.

Thanks Guys! I ended up going with the Bora PM-3500. I saw it in one of @guyswoodshop videos and thought "if its good enough for him its gotta be good enough for me"

It gets delivered tomorrow so I'll report back with how it works!

Would having this separator make a specialty vac like the CT36AC less necessary when doing larger amounts of drywall sanding, because it would reduce the amount going into the main body of the vac and the filter?
