There is quite a bit of setup time and learning involved in using one of these european combo machines. I bought it used from an estate so I didn’t get a good review with the owner about some of the accessories that came with the machine. I’m fairly sure many of the items are felder specific.
The felder rep on the west coast (Carl) has been very helpful. I will take my time and work through the details.
I’m still in the process of setting it up but i have made a few cuts with the saw and I’ve used the shaper/jointer. I really enjoy nice equipment and this is truly nice. The setup time is considerable for me since I’m learning. I also bought the fb-540 band saw and the 125 dust collector. I already have a dust collector so I won’t be using it right now.
The band saw is also a 2006. it only has one dust collection port but the area under the trunion is sized just about right for a 4” dust collection hose to fit right behind the blade.
