Title: Woodpecker's Parallel Guide system
Post by: scoffelt on September 30, 2015, 04:56 PM
I got my systainer filled with goodies this week. It will be a few weeks until I can get a chance to try it out due to too many family activities.  I didn't have any of the other options out there, so this will be my first tool to assist in repeated cuts.  I have a relatively small basement shop and the ATF55 has been a life savor for me in breaking down sheet goods versus my cabinet saw.  One thing I have struggled with is doing repeat/square cuts when I am working on cabinets and such. I mainly build stuff for personal consumption, but time is a huge factor for me since I don't get a ton of shop time.  That is one reason I went with Festool as it saves me time usually. I recently purchased the WP framing square to help with rail alignment, so I think this will be a nice combination for my work.  The price of the WP OTT's are a bit overly expensive, but I get it, and bite the bullet on some stuff.  Anyways, I am looking forward to trying it all out. I'll be curious what others who made the purchase think.

I think I might have bought something I will very seldom use. Buyers regret. The tools is exceptionally well built and packaged, but I just don't see myself using it.

There is already someone on the FOG looking to buy the metric set, I dont think it will be too tough for you to sell yours if you choose, my guess is you could get the retail price as well.
