Festool MFT/3 Multifunction Table

Festool MFT/3 Multifunction Table

10-11-2011 02:31 AM by woodtechbbq | 23 comments »

This is the Festool Multi Function Table. This was my big surprise Christmas present from my wife last year. She surprised me big time with this one and I think I surprised her very well by putting it together as soon as I got it through the front door. She was lucky that it didn’t become a permanent fixture in our living room. But after she finally convinced me I didn’t need to keep it in the living room, I folded it back up and got it to my basement shop. The MFT/3 measur...

Good Vibes are NO Vibes!

Good Vibes are NO Vibes!

08-18-2010 07:09 AM by mmh | 23 comments »

I have a medium sized female hand and I’ve been told I have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in my right hand but I’m not ready for surgery. I don’t want to be out of commission that long and the pain is not constant or severe. I’ve been using a 5” 4.8 lb. weight Ryobi and also an old Porter Cable and they both vibrate the heck out of my hand even with using two special shock absorbing gloves. I hold the sander with one hand to move around my cane handles and shafts s...

Festool RO 125 FEQ

Festool RO 125 FEQ

Whenever Festool is mentioned, there are always two totally different responses. One is–I absolutely love it and can’t wait until I can buy more of their products, and two–it is way overpriced and there is no way I’ll ever spend that much on a power tool! Maybe, just maybe, both answers are actually very valid, depending on your needs. I do ask though, have you actually used the tool? If your opinion is based only on price, you may not be quite fair. Being a professional woodworker for ...

Festool 2013 Tool Catalog

Festool 2013 Tool Catalog

10-25-2013 09:39 PM by libraryman | 22 comments »

Though not a tool in the strict sense, the Festool 2013 tool catalog has provided me with hours of interesting speculation and tool comparisons. I should state from the beginning that I do not own a Festool and will probably never be able to afford one. The power tools I have been able to afford are the reason I love looking at the Festools. Whilst my power tools do an adequate job, the lack of vision by their manufacturers provide a sad “what might have been” comparison with the Festools. T...

Review: ETS 125 EQ Random Orbital Finish Sander

Review: ETS 125 EQ Random Orbital Finish Sander

08-10-2014 02:54 AM by pashley | 21 comments »

REASON I BOUGHT A NEW SANDER: Sanding is not my favorite part of woodworking. I want the best result as quick as possible. I even considered getting a drum sander, but at $800+ and a chunk of floor space, I was reluctant. My DeWalt ROS would leave a lot of swirl marks, costing me time – in finding the swirls marks, and finding them after I started finishing! Also, the DeWalt would not do dust collection well. So, in an effort to finder better sanding down quicker with better dust collec...

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

10-11-2013 10:49 PM by glen | 21 comments »

Well, I finally got my festool TS back from the recall. The people at festool were kind enough to include a free baseball hat and this amazing new festool catbox eq. I’ve used several other catboxes before, but this particular one shines. Our kitty, Peter (aka spiderman), is presently getting over an injured paw, so this catbox really perked up his spirit. The box comes with a standard brown cardboard finish, is about 1/8” corrugated material, has privacy flaps that open on ...

Which Joinery Technique is Best? Time, Strength, Repeatability

Which Joinery Technique is Best? Time, Strength, Repeatability

02-09-2018 09:51 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 18 comments »

Hey Guys, So, I wasn’t REALLY just looking at the domino, but that is how reviews are posted on this site. What I really wanted to do is compare popular joinery techniques and test speed, consistency, and strength. I looked at the Festool Domino, the Kreg K5 system, Biscuit joints, hand cut and machine cut mortise and tenon joints. I looked at them from the perspective of a professional batching out pieces and a hobbyist throwing together one piece of furniture to see how it would...

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

05-31-2010 02:59 AM by Chris | 18 comments »

We purchased the TS 75 Plunge Saw a few months ago after another regular circular saw fried on me again. I am not a contractor or a woodworking professional; but, I do expect things to work for more than a couple of years. I chose the TS 75 after being fortunate enough to use a friends TS 55 to rough out the pieces for a couple of book cases. Power:The 75 has plenty of power to cut my sheet goods and rough lumber to usable dimensions with lots to spare. Accuracy:With the included tra...

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

Festool MFT3 has essentially replaced my table saw sled for crosscuts.

01-16-2018 05:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 17 comments »

So first off, I’m not a Festool guy. While I can see the value of having a “system” I think their pricing is not always aligned with the actual value delivered. For me, the MFT3 multifunction table is one of those love hate things. I have a friend who has one and all he does is tell me how great it is, how easy it is to use, how it helped him grow new hair for his bald spot, yada yada yada. So I had picked up a Makita track saw to break down sheet goods when I’...
