Footstool, it's not really wider by function, but because the dovetail slides and slaving cable need more room. The maximum stop positions are slightly wider than the Domino machine just to give maximum flexibility for whatever the user may want. I had considered making it even wider than this, because there really isn't a limit for that, but I also didn't want it to be too bulky for those users that never needed the extra width. That, plus where this leaves off, the Festool Cross Stops pick up.

I have been thinking about this today, and I think a wider version would be usefull why would you want to change out the attachments when one could do the same job.
If the milk turns out to be sour, I ain't the kind of **** to drink it.......

Why do Festool accessories only have a two month guarantee here in the UK ?

I'm updating this thread just in case anyone has it set for "Notifications" in their preferences. I am now taking orders for the SCG-10 guides. The thread announcing this is located Here.

Hi Rick,

I was watching your original video on your site with the MGS (nice and I like the discount if you by both!  [big grin]) and noticed you had your rail all the way at the end.  I know this is a bit off topic, but I'm curious if you are cutting with the blade completely off the "brown" part of the table and over the profile V channel.  I like your setup and was thinking of doing the same thing with my MFT/3.  Now trying to hijack the thread so please let me now if you prefer I start a separate thread.

Thanks!

Hi Rookie,
With a versatile system like the MFT, there is no hard and fast rule on how the table gets set up. I have had it set up in a few different configurations depending on what I am doing. For the video, I wanted the fence away from the camera and the guide rail as far to the edge as I could without changing the factory stop position. This gave me the most space on the table, and I did not need any offcut support for this application.

I had to go back and watch the video myself, but you can tell I am not over the aluminum--but very close to it. As soon as I saw the video again, I recognize the saw kerf I left in the MFT top (because it is still there). It is about 1/16" from the edge of the MFT's MDF top. It's not the common setup, but it worked just fine for what I needed at the time. The downside to that setup is there would be no support for your offcuts.

Makes total sense. I think I am going to give it a shot though as I have an 800 on a rolling table with systainers and the vac underneath, plus a sliding holster for the saw. I'm going to either reconfigure that one with th mft3 as the outfeed or vice versa. Like your video, I like the idea of using my table as a workspace without having to move everything to cut something. I'll post pics when I'm done in case it can help anyone else.  BTW, how about for your next project a centrotec style chuck that accepts both style bits or just the standard 1/4 hex.  I bet you'd sell a couple......
