  1. It's my favorite router for edge banding for sure. I had the attachments for the 1400 and it works but the router is pretty heavy and so you have to be careful to always put alot of pressure on the handle. The mfk is alot more balanced and alot faster to setup. You can also dial in the bit depth alot faster. That said it is a much specialized tool so it depends if you think you do enough work for it to justify the cost. Or in my case just wanted a new toy Oh one negative about the mfk you are limited on the thickness of your edge banding. This isn't a problem if you use commercial iron on type but if you make your own out of hardwood it can be. I forgot the number I think it's something like 5/8"
  2. Anyone have plans for their voucher. I'm kind of leaning towards the new non plunge tracksaw.
  3. The deal is so good it made Slickdeals front page.
  4. Their vacs are also much quieter than the typical shop vac. This is especially nice when sanding because that could take hours and I hate wearing hearing protection for that long. That said all those features can be found in other brands. But at that level they're similarly priced.
  5. Or you could just use Abranet or Autonet (which is what I use since it's cheaper) and not worry about hole patterns.
  6. A member on Woodnet who does reviews got a hold of a prototype last year. Not sure what changes have been made since then. https://forums.woodnet.net/showthread.php?tid=7151009

  8. If you have a Ceros (in any size) that fall within the given serial number range you can exchange it for a new Deros. I sent in both my 3" and 6" version. http://www.mirkaceros.com/assets/3-mus_recall_poster_160414-1-.pdf
  9. I have the same jig. Works great. Manual is long but thorough. After I got the hang of the jig I taped a few notes on it to help me remember how to use it and that (along with test pieces) is good enough to help me remember the steps the next time I use it. I'll second recommendation on the vrs. Hughe dust/shavings collector. Otherwise it's a huge mess. I thought about the upgrade but I'm happy with through dovetails. I do have a PC dt jig that I can use if I ever want to do hb. One tip I have though is make sure the router is completely stopped before you remove it from the jig. Otherwise you may accidentallychew the fingers of the jig. Maybe even yours if you're really not careful. This especially true if you use the vrs because you trap the router between the jig and vrs and can't slide it out without hitting the vrs. DAMHIK
  10. Anyone order one of these? It got pretty glowing reviews at fog but they're not always the most unbiased source. It does look interesting and I love how it supposedly just clamps on without any type of fiddling to get it square. I have a couple of other things higher on the tool list for now but when funds become available I'm seriously considering buying one. If anyone bought one and would care to share a review I'd be very interested. They're also supposed to come out with a square version as well. https://tsoproducts.com/tools-equipment/grs-16-guide-rail-square/
  11. I bought an Amazon Echo and fire stick Not exactly woodworking though. The nailers looked like a good deal. Worktunes hearing protection https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013092CS/ref=gbps_img_m-5_bf62_92b77247?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=387b9d89-6b2a-461c-8b1b-b00125d6bf62&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-5&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=13887280011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=DXGF88F300M609R6YX5D
  12. You can make or buy a whip type extension. I opted to make one by cutting a spare 27mm hose and buying an extra end piece. Bob Marino sells one but as with anything festool, it ain't cheap. https://www.bobmarinosbesttools.com/hose-adapter-27mm-to-36mm/p/HOSEADAPTER/

  14. It's an Agazzani (sp?) 18". No other details besides that. Will check out this weekend. Ive of the brand but don't know too much about them. I believe their on par with Laguna or even a little better? He's currently asking $1150. Wacha think?
  15. I persoanlly like the 12" and 31". I initially got 24" but found I was clamping things at or just a little above their capacity. If you've built some things maybe see what sizes you used the most. Check CL. Depends on the area and how quick you are but you can find some real deals on clamps
  16. Freud box joint blades with ibox for me.
  17. Take a look at the Incra version of the Jessem. I beleive its the same system except the Incra has the magna lock system. Which is their own design of the insert rings that attaches via magnets and is tool less. They also have slots in them to allow for the dust to be sucked down (assuming you have under the router dc) when doing trapped cuts like dadoes, sliding dovetails, etc. I currently have have the woodpecker prl2 and like it but when/if I ever upgrade I think I will get an Incra model. They also make a woodpecker prl version.

    Harbor freight calls it a mini cut off saw. Works well but the very small motor means you have to cut slowly http://m.harborfreight.com/2-in-mini-bench-top-cut-off-saw-62136.html If I paint it green I think I can sell it for close to that price on fog

    Picked this little guy up at a garage sale a while back. I've been using it to cut small pieces that would be way to scary to cut in a mitersaw. Yesterday I used it to cut some dominos that were a little too long.
  20. Both move. I use the longer rods to attach a 2nd fence on the opposite side so it can straddle the work piece when doing mortises.
  21. Ebay. I bought some a while back.
  22. First off thanks for your service. I'm not positive but I thought Marc's current bed video on the free site could be dismantled. I'm not home so I can't verify but it may be worth it to take a look.
  23. I love both festool and woodpecker products but this one is a pass from me. I have their 26" framing square and use that thing all the time. If you're alot of repetitive cuts on sheet goods I suggest the parallel guide. But I think the aftermarket ones are better designed. I had the festool ones and sold them and got one from Seneca.
  24. My local Rockler has them on display. You may want to see if your branch carries it. I didn't inspect it very thoroughly but it seemed very light weight. Perhaps it wasn't set up properly but the one rocked with very little pressure on either of the wings.
