I just found this one. Can the mk2 drilling block be used as an off cut fence in a pinch? Will they line up?

Yes. Yes.

Sweet, I’m still considering 80/20 parts for my MFT style work bench but this looks very useful for me

It is easy to make your own fence, providing you have four dogs.


Take a piece of plywood or mdf. Drill one 20 mm hole in it. Use one dog and a clamp to fix onto your MFT/3. Drill a second 20 mm hole (from below, of course). Use both holes and dogs to align with the rail. Make a cut. Do the whole thing again with a second piece of plywood (or mdf).
Now you have two fences that will align perfectly on both sides of the rail.
(Placement of holes and size of ply needs figuring out - this is just a thought experiment…)

Peter,

I have been checking status of this fence for a while now. Do you have any inside info as to when these fences will be made available again?

Thanks
Jack

@peterparfitt

I never got round to buying one at time of launch as was really wanting two to be useful and two 600’s wouldn’t cover my needs.

Axminster have been out of stock on this for a number of weeks now and hope they do a production run of varying lengths. It can’t be that hard to produce and stocks can be kept low as it’s virtually all done in house.

The demand for these new fences has been amazing and they are only just keeping up with the PGS and other Parf products. I understand that they have now opened a new workshop to cope with the demand and assume that they are recruiting the staff to operate the new machines.

It might all sound very exciting but they really do need to up their production capability.

Fingers crossed that things settle down soon.

Cheers.

Peter

Hi Jack

They are expected off the production line in the next couple of weeks and it is showing as "dispatch within 4 weeks" on the product page of the web site.

Peter,

I thought I was going blind as there is nothing on the product stating dispatch in 4 weeks. Then I refreshed the page and caught a glimpse of the wording under the price then it disappeared. Apparently that dispatch in 4 weeks only apples to your side of the pond ;-)

No, it is the same for everyone. I did give an explanation in my latest Workshop Notes video. Basically, Axminster have had to increase the size of their manufacturing capability  (yet again) due to the volume of orders for Parf kit. They did not want to subcontract work out and so there have been 2-3 months of disruption.

Things will improve very soon and I have been invited down to see the new facilities next week.

Peter, are there any deals in the works to bring this across the pond like some of your other tools, or will we Americans have to order internationally for the foreseeable future?

Axminster shipping is pretty reasonable and almost always faster than ground shipping. I have often found the price to be cheaper because the exchange rate fluctuates and you don’t pay tax....

+1 on Axminster shipping.  Two orders so far and very good prices and no more than 4 days total for either order to get here.  Not as happy with their customer service though, but will continue to order from them.
