Where all would you suggest to buy some tradesman bessey clamps from or who would have some good black friday deals for clamps in general.

Acme Tool seems to have good pricing and free shipping.
Winter has hit Maine early. 4" of snow. I work on rural historic renovations and parking near the homes isn't always possible. What does everyone else do, as far as moving their gear in and out of projects every day?287766-0

Looks awesome, how does the bluetooth hose work, does it need the module at the end of the hose still like the other vacs?

I started out with the TS-55 with the 55" rail.  I frequently use it to cut two layers of 3/4" baltic birch plywood with out any issues.  Just went at a reasonable pace.  I like to cut two layers at the same time to insure they come out exactly the same size. 

I added the TS-75 and a longer rail (106") when I had a project that was too thick for the TS-55.

The only thing I would do differently, is to get the 55" rail with the holes.

The older I get, the less I find myself willing to lift. I have a cutting table I made of 3/4" ply on folding legs (so I can easily store it). And my shop is fairly small so I prefer to do this outdoors where I have plenty of room.  I just slide the sheets out of the truck onto the cutting table and have a go at them with the tracksaw.  Sliding is way easier than lifting.

Classifieds / For Sale: Festool LR32 set with guide rail

LR32 Set with guide rail.  Like new condition.  This includes a brand new base for 1400 router and new 35mm bit.  The two missing clamps in the photo are excluded.  Therefore this set has two bases: one for 1010 and one for 1400.  Two 35mm bits: one new and one used once. 


I skimmed the OSB with joint compound.  I only did one coat so it isn't totally smooth.  But one coat filled in the holes well enough that it painted much better.  And joint compound is cheap.  I also filled in the joints between the sheets so they are less apparent too.  I don't think I used it but if you want more water resistance you could use setting compound.  It goes on as easily and dries much faster but you have to mess with mixing it with water.

My shop is too small to run full sheets through the table saw (14x24).  I like the track saw better anyway.  I haul the wood home in a small trailer which has short wooden sides.  Sometimes I just get a sheet on top of the sides and cut it there with the tracksaw.  Usually I tip it out of the trailer and carry it under my arm, clamped to my side, to the shop garage.  I put a 1 inch thick piece of foam on top of the outfeed/assembly table (3'x7') and lift the sheet on top.  The foam slides some but the table has locking casters and is loaded down with tools so it does not move.  I have to shift the foam a bit once the plywood is up but it works.  I'm 63 but can still handle full sheets of 3/4 OK, but I'm doing this as a hobby so a couple sheets in a weekend is about as much as I typically cut up. 

Slickest setup I've seen was a wooden lattice of 1x3s or 1x4s with folding legs so it can be setup as a cut table.  The guy who used it had health issues where he couldn't manage the sheets but he could slide them off his pickup onto the cut table.  From there, he finish cut with a track saw.  He never had to lift a whole sheet.  If it gets to where I need it, I might do this.  But so far, one lift onto the table is OK.  Carrying it 20 feet or so from the trailer to the shop garage isn't a problem.  I can back the trailer into the shop garage but usually I'd rather carry the plywood (I also have to pivot it 90 degrees while backing it and I'm not great at it).
