Conturo Edgebander - Table mounted and hand held
« on: March 01, 2015, 05:06 PM »
I thought I'd post up a couple of photos and 2 videos of the Festool Conutro in use. For smaller pieces I bought an adaptor  plate (festool part number 500175) and made myself a table to mount it in.



The table top can be removed so that it can be used for supporting other semi stationary kit



Like my rutlands router table top.



The first video shows the edgebander hand held with the panel clamped to the table. The edgebander has 2 speeds, and I find it easier to start off slow and then switch to the higher speed. This can be done easily when the machine is hand held, but not in the table.



The second shows the edgebander mounted in the table.



Hope this makes sense, but any questions please ask.

If you can't see the videos, try opening the page in Internet Explorer.

I think that part of the issue is that one or more of the small images autoplay which is delaying the download to the screen for the other videos.  I might suggest deleting those and just having the two large video boxes.

I can see them on my Mac.

Hi Chris.  I've got several cabinet making projects in the pipeline including 2 kitchens. Things are really busy at the moment which is good - how is it for you?
