Hi Mirko,

Ya, once a 356 gets into your memory banks it just won't come out. It is one car I would like to be able to buy new today.....hopelessly obsolete and surpassed in performance by even the most modest of econo boxes today, but nothing ever felt or sounded so right to me. One followed another all the way through the air cooled era for Porsche. I never warmed up to the vastly better water cooled models and always liked the slower 356s over the six bangers although the last Porsche to go a few years ago was a 73.5 911 FI Targa. Kerby, OR is a bit too remote and economically depressed a place to drive around in Porsches at least for now, but I expect there will come a day when I can feel right doing so again. When I can, I will.

Jerry

Joe,

Sorry to to break it to you but the list of Festools in your signature doesnt quite add up to 10 grand.

Eiji,

You can't be that much of a one dimensional thinker to think that the only Festool stuff I own is the stuff I listed can you

I guess what's even more telling is you took the time to add it up and I also guess you didn't have anything else constructive to add

Joe,
no I didnt actually add it up. I see that you listed 16 items and gave them a value of 500 each. it didnt add up to 10 g's.
BTW most peeps that list their festools at the bottom don't leave any out.

How could I add anything constructive to this not so constructive thread?

I also feel that your VS600 video is about as conclusive as your C12 video.

Jerry,
Humor, pontification and a healthy dose of condescendence, bravo.
I'll get back to you tomorrow and let you know how your recommendations went over.

Joe,
Sorry for the negative tone of my previous posts. I do respect your work and many of the things you have done to further the trade.

My point I guess:
There seems to be an air of negativity towards Festool at the moment. It is in fashion to bash. Now I cant say that the latest release of tools has been Festool's brightest moment (ie Kapex issues). Now my last thread regarding my MFK base flexing wasnt the most positive but it was constructive to the point where I was trying to assertain if this was a wide spread problem. It was not. Thank goodness, because now I have a MFK on the way that does not have the problem and other MFK owners have checked theirs and have not had this issue. If they did/do then they would be getting a new one as well.
My kapex issues, and I have had them all, have all been solved either by Festool or by me. I would have rather had the saw perfect out of the box but it wasnt. I was dissapointed but saw the value in getting it perfect because there is no saw like this baby.
I don't quite see the value in your thread because the VS600 is a tried and true jig that has been around the block a few times and makes consistent tight fitting joints as does your jig. There has never been any issues regarding the locking bar or knob. I have never heard anything negative about the jig escept for the cost, but thats Festool, and not being able to do half blinds with 1/2" stock.
It seems like you are grasping here.

Eiji

Eiji,

Every post you made towards me has had an overtone. I find it funny you'd call me rude. . .

You see I didn't even call you dude. . . . Maybe you can lose that.
