Re: Did anyone bite on the RECON TOOL Sale?

Yes. I'd been thinking about the 2200 for some time. While I love the 1010, the 1400 is only so-so given its dust collection setup seeming like a real afterthought to me.

When I saw the 2200 for...

Re: Happy Birthday Fred !!!

Happy Birthday Fred!

Hard to believe another year has gone by. Almost like you are older again, or something.

Hope you had a great day.

Best,
Steve

Re: Need repair help

Doug,

It's good to see you. Often wondered if you would float back through one of the forums.

If you've been up to curved stairs, I hope you'll share some photos. Can't speak for anyone other...

Re: Need repair help

Doug,

Are you the same Doug U that used to frequent the Breaktime forum? Last I heard from you you were building a canoe?

Welcome to the forum here in any case!

Re: First Festool: What's the Minimum Workable Setup for a TS55?

I'd recommend you getting some kind of vac. You can use the saw without one and it's not going to affect the precision or quality of the cuts; but life is a LOT nicer without that dust getting...

Re: Covington, Kentucky, 1913: A Family Mystery.

Wow. That's the best and most captivating piece of writing I've read on the 'net in ages. Rather reminds me of the Griffin and Sabine books.

Re: Coffee anyone?

Yes, though since I now pull/push a 2 year old for most of my workouts I haven't done Ironman in a bit. Hoping to get back there next Oct. It is kind of a magical place, and then there is the coffee...

Re: On Vacation

John,

Thanks for this info! I'm going to give them a try. It's kind of hard to resist that coffee.

I'm somewhat convinced that I suffer through the Ironman there just so I can stock up on...

Re: Bulk slides from Woodpeckers - any good?

Thanks Roger,

I appreciate the info & link.

Seems like a pretty good deal @ $10 a pair, so I may take the plunge and use them for some laundry cabinet drawers.

Re: Fixing walls

Is this for your own place, or a client's?

Depending on the age of the place, there's a reasonable chance you are going to be stirring up either lead or asbestos in that plaster. I like my lungs...

Just got an email from Woodpeckers that they are having their semi-annual bulk drawer slide purchase.

Has anyone ordered these before? Are they any good?

Re: ct-midi or ct-26? Any thoughts?

I had the same decision to make, for many of the same reasons as you. I went with the 26 mainly because of the HEPA capability.

Are there times when I wish I had the smaller one? Sure. But it's...

Re: MFT magnetic tool holder

Glad I posted that then.

Alan - thanks. Pulling them up so the full sole hits the magnet does make it stickier.

What I think would be better (in absence of a more powerful magnet) would be to...

MFT magnetic tool holder

Hope this hasn't been posted before.

While mortising some hinges I started thinking about a way to get my tools off of the MFT. I realized I had one of those Magnabars lying about and some extra...

Richard,

While I'm thinking of one of your plates/lifts, I don't think I'd mount my Festool routers in them (unless someone can point to a compelling reason to). I like the ergonomics they have...

DMT sharpening system reviews?

Been thinking that I need a sharpening device since, well, I don't have one. Aside from the idea of dragging chisels and plane irons through the kitchen knife sharpener. Kidding, really.

I've got that little one and if you are looking at that for box building it's a good one to consider. Especially since you can pull it apart and square up two corners.
