Hi everyone!

Just starting out, and already, I’m running out of money :P

Thought I’d share this quick tip someone gave me. Never forget that if you have a festool MFT/3, you always have a convenient way of making a sled with scraps in little to no time.

Sled is 3/4 mdf, then just use some clamps on the side of the table to get the bottom rail. Upper rail is easy to do with the MFT/3 accessories.

Thanks for the posting Gabe. I will make one of these for my festool table and have it ready. I do have a set of the MFS guides. Might be able to use them?

If you can afford the MFS guides, they sure make everything easier indeed!
