I have been  busy and I just logged back in and I saw a few people are getting this system. I think it is rather exciting to see people getting in on this tool. I just completed a cabinet for my laundry room. I am not a cabinet builder by any means. This was my first cabinet build. I just want to say I was able to achieve excellent results in part due o the dashboard system. I had great success with everything coming out true and square. That resulted in my cabinet going together and my wife being happy with the results. The drawers were a challenge in the fact I had to build a dado jig . The dado jig did its job and I was able to complete my build but holy heck a simple dado would take me forever to complete. I struggled with accuracy with such a jig. I was fortunate enough to have a wife who is encouraging my new hobby and she got me the jessem master lift excel 2 table . It came with the 2nd generation fence . I have since ordered the TA fence and the miter 2 set up. I am hopeful these items will come in before the end of the month . I live in phoenix and I do not work outside in the summer time. I retired from a job where I spent nearly 30 years outside in the summers. 
I went on a bit of a tangent there, I have attached the digital depth attachment to the router table. I think that is the handiest thing ever. I am able to whip out a drawer box in no time flat as compared to using a dado jig. This is all important since I won't be getting a table saw so no dado stack for this guy. So my router table is where I will land for many tasks people just crank out on a table saw.  One thing on the JessEm table The wheels are terrible. I have the steel table legs it is a three wheeled system and it is terrible save the 50 bucks and build a rolling platform with that 50 bucks you'll be happier. Well this post is a mess and I will wrap it up with I am excited to see other peoples experience with the dashboard system.

Received my dashboard hinge set for my MFT this week. It was very quick to arrive (2 days early!) considering it came to the UK from the U.S. I have to say it is extremely solid, easy to set up & has made things far less frustrating than the original MFT set up. Very happy.
