I've used a 1400 watt chopsaw through my CTM 26 Cleantec often enough.

Festool and Tanos Systainers / Re: Show your systainer

Not my video but just got the link, that is another way to use systainer

Lol that's my fault that one. I know the Insane Dane and while chatting one day I said why didn't he attempt a full size systainer version of that micro sys tank that we had seen.

Being completely mad he loves a challenge and this was the resulting video.

Sadly he's not having a good start to 2019 as just the other week some scumbag broke into his van a stole a big chunk of his Festools :-(

Festool Tool Problems / Re: BPS C12 just stopped working

Motor is broken or the electronics module. Both are expensive elements and you'd best send it to Festool for repair.

Here is how I fixed a similar blow-through blunder which might even work better in your case, because walnut is easier to find a grain match due to its darker tone:

1) Find an oversized patch about 2mm thick that has the best grain match to the surface
2) Ca or epoxy glue that patch in proper grain orientation to one end of the domino used for the project
3) after the glue is COMPLETELY cured, sand the patch flush with the domino (or even better an hair larger)
4) Trim the domino on the other end by 2mm
5) Insert and glue the patched domino into the mortise
6) Slightly sand the patched surface flush

Try this a couple of times on some scrap to develop your technique first.

I just took a look at my Delta and I’m positive the Jet is constructed in the same manner. The blade guides are suspended from the cast iron frame and for them to move vertically would take an act of God. The blade could be dancing around but the guides themselves should be immune from that action as they are isolated from the wheels.

Yes, with the exception of some details, I think the basic construction is the same. I took heart in your belief that it would take super natural power to move the frame - I figure even Loki has higher priorities than messing with my head through my bandsaw…

So, I tried hanging from the guide post mount and sure enough it moved. No higher power required. When I let go it moved back, with a slight "thunk." Repeat. Same.

The saw has a riser block installed and I shimmed blade side of the block to make the blade and guide post parallel (effectively moving the top wheel a bit to the left. The shim wasn't quite thick enough so I moved it away from the blade (towards the bolt joining the halves of the saw), so it forms a fulcrum around which the top half of the saw can rotate. Looks like my first move is to get some thicker shim stock.

A few months ago I ordered a set of insulated screw drivers, side cutters, plyers etc. I cannot believe I have gone this long without these in my life!!

If you take the extra step as Tom noted and match grains this photo is an example of what you can expect. Just take your time...you've already invested a ton of time in the construction of the chair. What's another couple of hours?

I should add, this photo is from 4"-6" away, from 2 or more feet away this anomaly wouldn't even be visible.

What Tom suggested but go over it with a crayon or hot fill stick to blend in any anomalies that may be left.  Then use wax wash to clean up the excess of the wax left on area around the repair then spot finish the repair area.

Wood Repair Products in Orange Calif specialize in repairing furniture and have 400 different colored crayons to match perfectly as well as hot melt sticks and other repair products.
I dont have any affiliation with them other then I go there and buy there products when needed.

Here is their website. You can give them a call maybe send them a photo and they might be able to help

The vibration could be bad bearings or the v-belts. V-belts are known to delaminate from time to time.

I’ve substituted link belts for the v-belts on my drill press and also on my lathe. They seem to transfer less vibration.
