What does the yellow Klein tool tool do on the end of the coax?  Don't think I've seen one.  Looks like a pass/fail but I'm wondering what it's measuring in terms of signal.

On your electrical find on the heater.... SHOCKING!

When we demoed and remodeled our home 18 years ago, the electrical in two rooms was taped with what we call 3M Scotch tape in the boxes. The kind you use to tape paper together.  So you are probably OK relatively speaking!

@Dick Mahany - Is that setup in a Systainer 2?  Any idea if it fits into the Systainer 1, without attic lid of course?

@RustE the Flexiclick will fit into a Sys1 although items can't be stood on end as in a Sys2 setup.  The Sys1 would make an ideal compact solution.  I took a few photos to show it better.  One could still add an attic lid to the Sys1 as there is room.

I'm not familiar with the filter you are referring to.  Do you have a part number?

I came close on the Flexi but my CXS is far from worn out and the batteries aren't really that bad.

If I didn't have a CXS oh boy would I have jumped on it.  It sat there in an open tab in my browser all evening.  But in the end, no.  And when I looked this morning it was gone.

Appears to be available for backorder now. Estimated delivery is late July or early August.

I'm sure I would use an eccentric chuck if I had one but I've managed to muddle through.  The thing is that the right angle on the CXS is so compact that it's kind of like an eccentric.

I'm using Inland 1.75mm Peak Green PLA which is just a bit lighter shade. Side by side 6 inches away the difference is pretty apparent. Five feet away is just barely noticeable. I'll try to post a picture later.

Festool Tool Problems / Honest opinion about Ts75 power
« Last post by glass1 on Today at 05:41 PM »
With 36 tooth blade should it be able to crosscut 2” mahogany in one pass. How about rip?  I started a new project that involved breaking down 2” mahogany. My little Makita x2 needed 2 passes with a 55 tooth blade. I purchased the Ts75. With a he 36 tooth blade it had less power than the Makita. I switched to the 18 tooth blade. Better, but still needed 2 passes. Saw never seemed right and it just died in less than one day. Back to my trusted festool dealer. No more ts 75s in stock. I took the display model november 2015 dated. Saw seemed stronger but really needed the 18 tooth to crosscut in a single pass without difficulty. I have not tried to rip yet. Any thoughts. With what blade should the 75 be able to handle 2” plus material in one pass ?
