Hello everybody,

I am sorry for my poor englisch, I’m german ;-)

Is there an easy way to ad some offset holes to an existing MFT table top?
There is a video Peter Parfitt is telling how to do while making a new table top with the Parf Guide System.
I own the MK2 System and have at this time no need for a new table top, but would really like to have some extra holes for cutting.

Thanks, William

Hi and welcome.
I’ve added extra holes to my tops using the PGS Mk 2.

I made my holes on both edges at 48mm offset. There’s lots of ways of marking them out but, the squaring using both of the supplied rules, is in my opinion the best way.
My holes are parallel to the existing holes but, with offset centres.

Thanks for the quick reply.
How do you align the rulers with the existing holes to guarantee the offset ones a still square?
