My Version of Tim's MFTC

Shortly after seeing Tim’s MFTC video (on the Festool Users site), I proceeded to purchase a set of plans from him. While the build went relatively smoothly, I encountered problems with finding various items that he used. Specifically, I wound up having to change the adjustable feet on the fold down top, so I substituted simple bolt-type feet that use nuts to adjust their height. I could not find any form of drawer “catch” or magnet that would keep the “drawers” closed when the MFTC was tilted, so I ultimately used slide bolts on the fronts of the drawers. Rather than fabricating a “table lock”, I used a “hook and eye” type lock to keep the table in the upright position.

@nkawtg… I actually did see his MFSC a few days ago. I have not, yet, determined whether something like that would be of any use to me for the kinds of things that I do.

You have made this stand into a very nice piece of equipment.
