Other Tool Reviews / Re: Makita vs Festool?
« Last post by Jmacpherson on Today at 05:56 AM »
Seth has a very valid point about Festool batteries. Yes the 10,8v drills and the 18v sanders are different but the sander batteries work on the current 18v chargers. However, the 18v/15v batteries and tools are backwards and forwards compatible.

Here is Peter Parfit's review of the BHC, go to 03:57 to see the part about batteries.

A lot of people will invest into a cordless system which has the most variety, which Makita and Milwaukee probably own in terms of variety. Dewalt seems to be coming up with some interesting items and even Ryobi too from a more affordable point of view.
The battery ah/capacity race seems to have been replaced by the cordless tool of convenience race - cordless pvc pipe cutters, rivet guns and coffee machines

That being said, how many people would buy a tool from another platform from a convenience or efficiency point of view?

My problem with Wabeco is that they don't ship to US (directly from the company). Re-sellers bring the price up considerably.
There are some countries we do not supply among others AU and USA.
For these countries, we are happy to forward your request to our representative or we will
give you the address of our representation.
Maybe just sent them a mail?

Australia NewZealand Army Corps.

Today in Australia and New Zealand together with our service personnel in the Middle East and Afghanistan we remember those that fell and served in WW1, WW2, Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, Africa, East Temor, Iraq, Afaganistan and others.

I photographed the image above last November at the Australian War Memorial. Each marble service blanket represents an Australian Defence Force  member who was killed in Afghanistan.
Hi Gregor
Thanks for the comments, the other possibility is to have a threaded stud instead of a threaded hole. You could fit a countersink headed set screw into the clip, it would have to be locked, probably with a nut, to stop it turning.
To modify my prototype shelf and use these plastic clips would be difficult as it is sized for the P clips. There is a packer strip under the shelf edge to stiffen the edge and take up the thickness of the P clip. It would be easier to make a new shelf now I have a pattern to work from.

I think deploying an attic lid onto the systainer with the drill (to hold spares, possibly in the bit holders that fit there) and having the most needed bit types at hand on the magnet holder of the tool is superior - and cheaper.

The fence locking knob should move the two hoogs that go into the T-slot in and out (it's a simple excenter), clamping the fence on the way in.

That both won't work is strange and hints user error (as it's unlikely to have the both fail at the same time, they're quite sturdy), to exclude this scenario please post a picture or two as these might help to diagnose the problem.

Nice set!

I recently bought the Knipex version, angled.
Like it a lot since it extends the reach nicely but also gives a lot of control.
Used on the car and a lot of other small repairs..
Get on the waitlist for the UJK Drill Guide:

Said they would email me late summer when more are available

MFT centipede could be cool


I have the MFT slab like that but just use it with sawstools.
In my opinion my way saves space on the worksite as I can fully use the space under it and sawstols are more versatile.
What takes up less space when packed?

My use case is making it as easy to make big plywood cuts at a higher level (less back breaking) as it is throwing the foam board on the ground and then to pack it up quickly into a small area until next use
