Tools or Projects....... - 18 replies
Sometimes i find myself making shop tools or jigs and such to make the shop more functional-as the shop is a tool itself (or an addiction!!). Myself, i am a hobbiest. I have 4 kids and 2 jobs so shop time isnt as frequent as i would like. So, with that said, i try to just buy, if affordable, jigs tools, etc. That way i can focus more on projects...

I have recently acquired a nice collection of Festool tools. One of the best is the 1400 router. I upgraded from the Ridgid router. My question is this… how do you see the bit when working? In the ridgid machine, there was a light that allowed you to see your work clearly. THere was also a nice large hole in the base, which allowed for the...

Need advice on Festool Rotex 125..... - 4 replies
I have recently been bitten by Festool bug and i do not regret it! The Domino, CTL, and MFT are the best combinations for productivity and accuracy that money can buy.

Is it just me..... - 2 replies
Hello fellow woodguys-Is it just me or….Do your tools fail the first time you use them after tuning them up? Even after testing them after the tune up? I bought an older drum sander a few weeks ago. Got a better than great deal off Craigslist and the guy was only 3 miles from my house. Its a Grizzly, dual drum, 24in wide sander. Got it hom...
