Are you going to try to pick up the Festool rails and hinge system? That might make life quite a bit easier.

I just purchased the TS55. I will get the hinge system!

I have seen folks who also buy the rails for the outside perimeter. I guess at some point you may as well just buy an MFT, lol. Not sure how much those replacement parts go for.

    • Home made tools

      If you want to make some of your own tools I would start with a spokeshave kit from lee valley and go from there.  Hand tools are leless hazardous if yoyou make them wrong... they just wont work well.

      Love me a good mystery. Popping corn and waiting for Steve's cocktails to kick in. Ripe thread.  On a serious note, I wonder how many species have been cut and logged but never catalogued or documented. 
    • Using a belt sander in finish sanding?

      Since you're getting good results, as you said, I don't think there is something you're missing.

      If you watch online videos from Mathias Wendel and Izzy Swan, you'll see they make almost all their tools. But I've never ever seen quality or even nice furniture made with those machines.... It appears that the GIGO rule (garbage in garbage out) applies to woodworking too LOL. Having said that, I personally made some tools for myself, like a disk sander and lots of jigs, but none of the important ones.
    • Sculpted Rocker
      By TIODS · Posted
      At it early this morning again.  Took me about 3 hours to get the leg to rocker fit just right.  Lots of trial and error but, it came about pretty good.  Patience is a virtue!  Especially for the wife who lent a hand.         Time to clean them up.  Flattened one side on the jointer and did the other side at the drum sander.  I built a quickie sled to support the leg all the way thru the sander.         Finding a way to work on this chair up-side down is difficult at best!  Had to get creative here as I dry fit the front dowels.     Major wind storm today and we lost power so, that's pretty much where I had to stop..  I spent a little time on the back patio hand sculpting the bottoms of the rockers by hand..  Maybe now that the power is back, I'll get a little more time in this evening?
