the major European manufacturers make a t handle magnetic bit holder. Here's a link for KC Tools.

Wiha and Felo have the most reasonably priced entries, in the $10 range.

I'm partial to the Wiha impact rated bits. Here's a set of Torx from 10 to 40 (note the pic is wrong)

I have and like this set:

It has the same range of Torx and everything else.

I will still use my 1010 over the 1400 if absolute router bit concentricity is a must.

Going to Festool Connect next week .. guessing I might be adding to my Festool collection?

Yes thats very cheap , its just they are only 4 miles from where i live , they have a massive range
of Festool in stock , and i like to touch and feel before i buy , they have staff that know what they are selling
that means a lot to me , as if something goes wrong i like to go and see someone to sort it out rather than
having to sort it on the phone and mess about sending stuff back , just my opinion

I agree with you,....if I was buying tools. But blades are blades and as a consumable, I buy them wherever they are cheapest.

Quite often, I will find the best price online for an item and then go into my local Festool dealer and 9 times out of 10 he will match the best price I've found!

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Rotex vs ETS vs ETS EC
« Last post by Zenoah on Today at 04:16 AM »
the ETC EC is much lighter and a lot easier to use one handed. If you sand anything vertically its much less effort. The Rotex offers the ability to rough sand. polish and finish though so is a more all rounder type of sander. its best to have both!

Service guy said sometimes they...........can bend the clip-in tabs slightly to make it center better.  It didn't sound too encouraging ...

Hmmm, that’s not the right answer...

How confident would you be if you brought your car in to be aligned and they suggested that the tie rods or A-arms could be bent slightly to adjust toe-in? I’d bring it to a different shop  [eek]

Remember that the insert will not move laterally along the horizontal axis created by the 2 push in tabs. The insert however does move at 90 degrees to that axis to the tune of approximately .010-.015”. So the bottom line is, you can mitigate insert movement but you have to be keenly aware of the direction of your router movements versus the axis created by the 2 push tabs.

Any router movement along the axis created by the 2 push tabs will not move the insert, while router movement at 90 degrees to that axis will produce the maximum amount of insert movement. Movement at +_ 45 degrees to that axis will also produce approx 70% of the maximum potential insert movement.

I will still use my 1010 over the 1400 if absolute router bit concentricity is a must.

I am downsizing and will soon be selling a bunch of stuff I don't use. 

One thing is an OF 2200 router that's been sitting in a Systainer since the 2010 10% off sale.   [eek] 

What is the difference between the old OF 2200 model number and the current OF 2200 EB-Plus?  I don't want to misrepresent what I have. 

Thanks!!!
Keep me posted on this. Interested.

Used the Pinner today on the trim project. It worked well. The pins held the trim in place while the Titebond 2 setup.

Thanks, aware of the pin and the supposed router belt seems way too small (just ordered from Felder). The pulleys don't seem to line up to use the "high speed spindle".

The arbor in the picture is one I haven't used yet.  Does the big nut screw on the shaft?

Thanks again.

Greg

I have a Felder 731 and there are two different belts, one for the moulder another for the router spindle. Also the spindle has a pin to lock.
