3rd MFT or 2 MW 1000 extensions?
« on: August 02, 2019, 04:54 PM »
I love my two MFTs but often have to fold at least one of them up for space. Just wondering if anyone has attatched the MW 1000 extension table to an MFt...is it fairly stable ?...I might consider buying 2 of them That would give me flexibility on set up if I needed just one of them or if I needed an L shape set up. ..etc etc ..or perhaps an out feed support without setting up a heavy MFT for a quick cut or two?
Your thoughts ?

I have 3 MFTs. I’m on the road right now doing some site work. I only brought one MFT with me. I needed a bit more room so I got a extension. I must say it is a handy little thing. It did it’s job well. Example for ripping full sheets of ply I used a sheet of 4x8’ foam as a base to set the ply on and cut. The extensions did well with the MFT

It is a tad narrow but I really do like it and glad I bought it

I agree with Ron, I have two MFT’s and two extensions, apart from the extensions being a little narrow, they’re are very useful.
I have even profiled a few timber blocks to match the MFT side channel extrusion, and screwed them on to the walls and bench in various parts of the workshop, enabling me to use the extensions as mini work benches.
