PSC420 Carvex Video Review - Part 2
« on: October 24, 2012, 06:27 PM »
I have been doing some more work with the new Carvex and realised that I am quite enjoying using it - I had never really liked jigsaws before. I decided to make a second video to carry on from where I had left off in the first.

I have been making a computer desk built into an alcove in the study and I used the new Carvex to cut the scribed line in 20mm solid oak. It was a perfect cut but I did not video it - so I have shown some other scribed cuts in veneered blockboard and veneered MDF as well as through some 40mm thick solid oak.

Do watch it to the very end as I have added a little bit extra.

Here is the link:

Wonderful video Peter, again as usual.  You showed me all I needed to see.   Please send this thing to the states ASAP, we are all foaming at the mouth, at least I am.  Really like your videos Peter, I'm amazed how that cut without any tear out, fabulous!

Life is too short and the road is too long to drive anything less than a Festool

I was quite worried when I was asked by my magazine to look at the new Carvex - I have never really got on with jigsaws in the past. However, having used this machine for a couple of weeks it has changed my view completely. The results shown in the video are superb and I am really impressed. My oak desk top that fits in the alcove (3 walls which are nowhere near square) fits like a glove - you would be pushed to slide a cigarette paper in between the top and any of the walls.

Hi Peter,
Thanks for another good informative Video, I was wondering as you have the CMS base could you talk Festool or your magazine into letting you test the Jigsaw attachment plate for the CMS.???

Hi Pip

Oh how I wish life were that simple. I would much rather be given the opportunity to test drive the CMS-OF. My children are already planning to get me a Festool router for a combined Christmas and birthday present but I doubt wether there will be any more kit to test before the New Year.

Thanks for the nice comments.
