I'm sure there is an obvious reason, but why did you not simply consider a midi or maxi systainer? The key issue seems to be size and you definitely don't need to buy a sys3 and store tools diagonally when you can just get a midi or maxi and put a few tools together.

Although the Midi-size has gone over to T-LOC, the Maxi still has not, which I consider a grave mistake.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: FSK rail vs FS rail and TSO square

I agree with Tom.  I bought the TSO about 1-2 weeks ago and it's very accurate.  Hans and his team @TSO Products did a great job.  I posted my off-cut measurements in a thread some time ago, which came to .06" over 19.25".  I was in a rush when I did the measurement so I need to do another test - maybe this weekend.

Festool Tool Reviews / Re: CT Cyclone review from Wood Whisperer

I'd be interested to know the difference with the D36 hose as well.

Seth

It was a good review. I was glad to see the inside of it. I do not see any benefit to using a larger hoses, because it appears that the tube from the top of the cyclone to the vac connection is about 1 inch in diameter. The size of this tube determines the air flow.

Hi there,

Unless the tool is NAINA or rare as rocking horse poop I wouldn't buy it in Australia. You will definitely pay too much because of what we call Australia Tax. The Festool agent has a price fixing deal here too so there are no bargains to be had.

Looks like it will work though according to the posts above. Good luck.

Whilst all this is sadly true for us who live here; the current US/Aust. $ exchange rate may make for an excellent opportunity for those with US $s in their wallet.  I would probably seek out NAINA items such as  the excellent 65mm plane.

If buying in Melbourne try Just Tools in Sth Melbourne which are at the city fringe.

Another NAINA is the belt sander -

Thank you Peter and Michael.  I've not shipped enough multi Systainer orders to have a handle on the many combination of Systainers and shipping.  The volume of air, as you put it Peter, has been the thing on my mind.

For the moment I'll stick with actual shipping costs to gather more data.

Other Tools & Accessories / Another Felder BF 7-41 question...
« Last post by gpl916 on Today at 01:19 AM »
Well, I still haven't figured out how the router setup works on my Felder BF7-41. The supposed router belt seems too small, I can't begin to close the belt tensioner on the router spindle but have another question.

Can anyone tell me how this arbor works? You would think you would just remove the Allen bolt, loosen the set screws and then spin the big nit off. Well that doesn't seem too work. The big nut just spins and doesn't seem to want to come off so I can change cutters.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Mft/ of1400 worth the plunge?
« Last post by ScotF on Today at 01:18 AM »
Great setup. Peter nailed some of the advantages. I think the MFT is my most used tool. Then the vac, drills, TS and then the router. Rail guided routing is awesome. I made an entire table and drawer with a jigsaw, Rotex and my 1400 router with one small rail and it came out nice. I did not have an MFT/3, but I did have my SYS MFT and it was a good substitute for a remote job with limited tools and space.

I do not think you can go wrong.

Yeah, the pieces are too long for that.

That is a nice closet.



I have the PUR hot melt too. Maybe buy a slower set hot melt glue?

The PUR system only allows 30, 60 & 75 second set times. And maybe half of that duration is the actual work time available. I purchased the PUR system specifically for the reason that I could hold the item in place (drywall trim on a round window) for only 15-20 seconds and then move on.
