Default MFS size considerations?

Quite a while back I bought the MFS 400. I started with that size because I wasnít sure if Iíd find it that useful. Iím now a believer and am thinking about expanding my collection. I was going to jump at the 700 profiles next, but then it occurred to me that the 1000ís might be more useful. These things arenít cheap and itís not like Iím in business, so Iím starting to be more selective with my buying.

Anyone out there use these things a lot? Any advice?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Mike,

If it was a choice between the 700 and 1000 series, my choice would be the 1000 model. You don't want to be designing your future project around the max length of the smaller and saying to yourself DANG! I wish I had gotten the extra 300! (the extra 12" when working at that length will never hurt.)

Just think of the sleepless nights you might go through if you get the 700,
it might translate to nightmares where your repelling off the edge of a cliff only to find that your rope is 300mm short from salvation.

Or another dream where your building a house but there is a gap in the middle of 300mm right down the middle.

Definitely not worth the extra stress.
(ps. I have the 1000)

Mike,

"Selective in your buying." Who are you, and what have you done with our Mike?

Best,
Rutager

Is there a video of Mfs 700 Multi-Routing Template in use? I don't understand its usefulness.

Thanks Mark

Only the 1000? I thought you would have special-ordered an 1800 set "just in case". You were off your tool-buying game that week

Okay, so my 1000's arrived and I got the normal little spare parts print out with them.

So what in the world is this? Any clue about what's it's for?

Part # 493 318
or
Part # 493 234

I don't see how either of these is something that goes with the MFS, but they must.....

So, Roger, why do I need the 2000's???????
