Festool Tools & Accessories / Makita saw on Festool ug stand
« Last post by neth27 on Today at 03:42 PM »
I have the Festool kapex saw with the ug stand. The job I’m on at the moment has no power so I have bought a Makita 36v mitre saw. Does any one know if the Makita saw would fit on the Kapex ug brackets. It would save me buying another  saw stand.

Cheers  john...

As others said, nice truck! [emoji1303][emoji4]

I recommend getting a stack of one different color to start with. This leaves you a lot of combination options to organize.

I got a set of 5 grey Tanos ones. Then you can have festools with grey handles, grey Tanos with green handles and interchange bottom and top for added variation.
Gives some variability without too much hassle.
Great little resource, @Mario Turcot - he’s got some useful stuff. Thanks
Well, you're in luck, apparently there's one comming out real soon.

See this thread for more details.

As a Sawyer I always saw there are two types of Sawyer.... Those who have sawn into their mill and those who are gonna.... Those who say they never have never will are either lying or not trying, ie, pushing the limits and mincing trees into as much lumber as possible.
There standard drill/drivers are grate but in the uk we love impact drivers
Just in case someone is interested in some more pictures of that industrial/ mechanic's stethoscope. :)

Those stethoscope's are really, really handy for diagnosing engine noises in automobiles and motorcycles.  [big grin]

Originally, I used a long handled screwdriver (18"-24") and put the metal blade on the suspected noise source and placed the handle against my ear. That worked...kind of...sometimes...sort of...

Then about 20 years ago I picked up an inexpensive Lisle stethoscope for $15-$20. What a huge difference that makes, you can actually hear a bad bearing in an alternator with it.  [smile]
@Bernmc  you might want to look at John Lafferty dust hood. He is from Australia and make a 3D print dust hood for the Paft guide. It is very well done and sturdy. I got mine and it fit perfectly on the Parft guide first gen. I would think it is the same fit for the Mark II. Look for him on yellowboxshed

On the bright side of it, you can now use the fence as an angle gauge to set your saw's angle if you need to repeat the same bevel cut....  ;D
