Pivot point for the MFS
« on: August 04, 2019, 06:21 AM »
Hopefully someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance.

What is the pivot point screw of the MFS for?

Also how much to replace that screw?

You can use it for routing arcs with extended MFS pieces joins together.

Unless I don't understand your question, it's the pivot for cutting circles.  It fits an 8mm hole perfectly.

I'm afraid I don't know the price, but I guess the EKAT system will tell you.

PS:  In my estimation the MFS is one of the best things Festool does; I use on almost every project in one way or another.

It is a great tool but sadly under appreciated.

Maybe there'll be more short videos shows the many uses for MFS. I'm very new with the MFS, so I'm still not aware of all the uses it has.

Can someone recommend good videos of MFS in various uses? Most of the videos I've found on YouTube only introduce the basics.

FWIW I designed the corner fillets Peter shows in the second video.

I recently purchased the WP version of this tool. Had to punch a hole in the top of a sewing cabinet I'm working on. This jig was idea for this in that I made a cut in a sample piece to try on my daughters sewing machine and had to make a couple small adjustments. If I had made my own jig adjustment would have been very difficult or impossible.

I also have one drawer box that is a little on the tight side so was thinking of using this jig to cut a shallow dado just wide enough for the drawer slide.
