I have used on several ocassions with great results.  The moulding was prefinished and shipped in a sturdy heavy duty cardboard tube with zero damage.  Not affiliated with them in any way.

What a lovely story and awesome sign. I'm sure you're Dad would have been so happy to see the Hegner brought back in to use and so proud of his son's skills in using it. It must mean even more to your friends that the story accompanies the sign.

Thanks Gary, it is one of those tools that I thought would be useful but had always managed to do I am thinking how I can use it in the next project [big grin]

As Garry said, a lovely story and I am so glad that I spotted this thread. I inherited a few of Dad's old hand tools and I keep them on the bench even though I do not use them.

A brilliant sign and a really clever trick with the old scroll saw.


Thanks Peter, I have said it before in posts that I enjoy using tools that were left to me by my Grandfather or my father-in-law or my Dad, it is a link with them that is in the here and now. Always brings a smile to the job in hand.

Festool Jigs & Tool Enhancements / Re: Ripping sheet goods

To avoid lateral inconsistencies I place a support about half way when ripping sheet goods.

The extra time it takes to set things up is worth the effort, YMMV

Those sawhorses look pretty nice, what brand are they?
No you cannot. It's on the Recon FAQ page.

Does anyone know if it's possible to use the Pro 5 rebate with one of the recon tools?

Festool How To... / Re: why do guide rails warp?
« Last post by DaveCH on Today at 12:30 PM »
I experienced the same problem with my 1080 rail that came with the MFT.  Mine was cupped to a similar degree, but upwards at the edges, rather than high in the middle.  Mine had a very consistent radius of cupping along the full length of the rail.  I use the MFT only in my workshop and store the rail carefully, so it certainly wasn't a case of force or impact.

Given the uniformity of the cupping along the length of the rail, I can't see how any normal usage scenario could generate this kind of deformation.  Wonder if there's an occasional issue with some kind of internal stress remaining in the rail after manufacture.

BTW My dealer was great and replaced the rail free of charge.
Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: OF 1400 Router Support Foot

I can confirm Mr. Wong's information. I contacted TylerC and the informed me (very prompt I might add) that it does not come with my particular model of router.

I did a check and mine was made in 6/15.

Last night I was able to get it out and put some 3/4" radius round overs on a few cutting boards. I am absolutely impressed with the dust collection on it! I didn't have any cleanup afterward which was nice.

A couple of months ago I bought a cleaning set with the 36mm non-AS hose. I noticed slightly better dust collection with my TS55, very slight. However, I think the payoff will be when I use it on the OF 1400. I haven't been able to play around with it much, but I can see where the dust collection will a little better and also the non-AS hose is a ton easier to manipulate than the 27mm AS hose.

Nice railing Cheese! Where do you buy the stock?

Thanks Michael, I get all my stuff from Discount Steel, they're local. Same place I purchased the Evolution stainless blade.  [big grin]
I chose mill finish 1 1/4" schedule 40, 304 stainless pipe. I picked the pipe up and then drove over to a local guy that does centerless grinding. I had everything centerless ground on the spot (nice option for cash payments) which yields a beautiful surface finish. Then drove home and started the cutting process.  [smile]
