Nice set up, Woodguy! Where are you in Denmark? What sorts of things do you do. I'm guessing you have to go up and down some narrow staircases to get to your work - the Festools must be perfect for that.

Welcome aboard! It'll be fun to have you here.

Med venlig hilsen,

I live in Denmark's second largest city - Aarhus

We do mainly extensions, conversions and servicing.

Festool is....... as seen on the pictures my favorite tool brand!

Man. This just gets cooler with every picture! Nice!

How does that barrier for the CTMini work? Does it lift up, or do you have to unscrew something?

Aarhus is lovely - I've been there once. Good university. And a wonderful place to live - you're lucky. Except at this time of year, when it's dark all the time...

Are you using onboard 12v power for the lighting or is it plugged into grid current? What kind of light fixtures? That looks really bright!

The metal pins is only secured in a pair of holes underlying. The weight of the vac holds it in place.

Aarhus is a great city. Its large by Danish standards, but still with that touch of small town atmosphere.
You are absolutely right about the darkness - It lightens an hour after I arrive at work and becomes dark again two hours before I'm home.

The lightbars are only powered by the main 12V battery. But the LED light is extremely bright and also has a very low power consumption.
The bars are fabricated by a danish company called Raaco.
In denmark the price is aound 30 USD per ongoing feet.

Minor update !

I have for some time wanted to make a drawer in the unused space under the deck at the side door.
I actually thought that I would use the space to store items. But I decided later that a drawer in this position could provide easy access to some of the tools I use most.
To get the drawer to slide properly, I mounted a sliding rail on the lower floor at the front edge of the drawer. In the rear of the drawer, I have installed two small wheels pressing against the underside of the upper floor.
It is the same design as I have used on the drawers at rear doors.

Very nice setup mate. Reminds me of a guy I know in Belgium or the Netherlands (can't remember) who had his van kitted out with dewalt stuff in their storage boxes.

I had read that the Transit was supposed to be coming over here to replace the old Ford vans. Haven't seen one yet though.

Hey everyone... Does Fred have a van?
