  1. Yeah, right now I am trying to decide between the Oneida v3000 and the Laguna P Flux 3HP.
  2. Looks like the Oneida v3000 is another option could look into coming in at 88".
  3. Any reference if the p flux is louder than normal for dust collection? I realise they aren't quiet in general, but would prefer to take a quieter option if one exists since it is in the house.
  4. How does venting outside effect heat in the house?
  5. Yeah, I looked at some of the short setups that were proposed for ClearVue and they seemed to be awkward and space consuming. I will in all likelihood be in this basement shop for a long time to come.
  6. Yeah, I understand that, just curious if the P Flux 2 or 3 would be sufficient or if there is something else I should be looking at.
  7. I doubt I would ever use more than one machine at a time. Just don't want to drag a machine around the shop.
  8. I have been getting my basement shop(roughly 25' X 20') setup in my house and it is in desperate need of some real dust collection. Currently, I am getting by with a shop vac and a Jet air cleaner but I am adding a Dewalt lunch box planer and hopefully a 6-8" jointer soon. I am hoping to only buy a dust collector once, so I am trying to find something that will keep up as I expand my tools(table saw, router table, miter saw, planer, jointer & bandsaw). I would prefer to at least setup 1 or 2 main trunks that all or most of my machines are permanently hooked up to rather than dragging something around I am mainly limited by my ceiling height(90 inches). Currently, I have been looking at the Laguna P Flux line which would fit with my low ceilings, not sure if the 2HP or 3HP would be sufficient for my needs. Curious to hear if anyone has any thoughts on the P Flux or if there are any better options out there that I should consider. Thanks!
  9. Thanks for the input. I don't think I would be using this miter saw for a lot of rough work. Main uses would be trim and woodworking/furniture building. I will be hanging on to my 10" miter saw for construction work, possibly use the new saw occasionally if capacity becomes an issue.
  10. I don't think I would buy the CT for just the miter saw, but rather if I decided to buy more Festool tools. Dust collection is still very uncertain, completely new shop and I will probably want to add a real dust collector for larger tools.
  11. Marc reviewed the Bosch Glide? I was considering getting the CT26 along with the Kapex if I were to go that route, I would need to purchase an additional hose?
  12. I need to replace my existing 10" miter saw with a larger capacity model. I plan on using it first to cut all the trim for my new house and then later for woodworking in general. The saw will go into my new basement workshop and very rarely if ever be taken out of there. Currently, I am having trouble deciding between the Festool Kapex and Bosch Glide 12". I am leaning towards the Kapex because of quality, precision and dust collection concerns. In my previous house my workshop was in a detached garage and dust collection was not as big of a concern. Moving into the house makes it more of a priority and possibly purchasing a Festool dust extractor as well. However, adding a Festool dust extractor makes this whole purchase around 3x the cost of the Bosch Glide. The Bosch Glide in general seems to be a great saw, but dust collection seems pretty bad in the reviews I have looked at. Also, I have seen inconsistent reviews regarding the accuracy of the saw. Lastly, the lack of the laser is disappointing. Was curious if anyone experience with either or both of these saws? I would be really interested in anyone that has experience modifying the Bosch Glide for better dust collection.
  13. I am building a stool for my son, it is from these plans. I don't like how they are doing the joinery, it is all screwed in and for the smaller step attached to the turtle's head they are using cleats screwed in below the step as well. Instead of screwing in the large top step I was planning on using dowels and glue to attach it. My main question is with the small step, I would like to practice mortise and tenon joinery and wanted to know if it would be appropriate for the small step. Everything is 3/4" lumber so the mortise would only be 1/2" deep, 1/2" thick and 3" wide. Would this be large enough to support the step? Also, is there some better way to attach the top step? I am trying to avoid screws and nails. Thanks.
