Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: LR 32 Rail
« Last post by Gregor on Today at 03:37 AM »
In case one holey 1400 covers your current needs with the LR 32: go for it. Effectively you can use it as a standard rail for the rest of your tools, so you could leave the plain ones joined up and use the holey one for situarions were you currently need to break up the two.

Worst case is that you might need more LR32 reach on a later project, then you have the option to either get another holey 1400 (to join up the two), to stay with one 1400 one and move it (using the bit in last hole as index position, ok approach for when you need only a few rows) or get a long one then and resell your short one on ebay (to recover ~80% of the initial price - that ballpark works at least here in germany).

I find two 1400 rails are way easier to transport than one longer one (at least for me) and with makita connectors I have no problem with them not being straight when joined.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Let's talk drills/drivers

I guess the place to start is to identify those specific qualities you need from a drill and then ascertain which drill will provide them.

I own both Festool and Milwaukee drills.

The outstanding traits that Festool drills provide:
The CXS is my favorite small format drill...bar none.
The C 15/18 has the best torque limiting system...no more slipping clutches which just wear out and are annoying.
The Festool drills provide the best right angle or limited space drilling flexibility.

After that, Milwaukee has all the rest of the bases thoroughly covered.
Issues such as warranty, initial price, battery cost, availability, power and that goofy Centrotec thing are better with the Milwaukee offering...specifically their 18 volt line.

If this were universally accepted, Harbor Freight would rule the tool market. 

They do have over 800 stores plus online and I see a lot of their stuff at estate sales. Maybe more market penetration than you think, just saying.

Yes, I meant the casing that lays flat on the wall. The inside jamb is covered with primed FJ pine.

I'd use a round-over bit with a guide bearing.  I don't remember seeing pre-cut MDF casing at HD.  Your post used the word "trim" did you mean casing - i.e. the trim that bridges from the jambs to the wall ?
