Sales & Dealer Area / Re: Shaper Workstation
« Last post by Shane Holland on Today at 02:21 PM »
How much longer does the $50 off for the workstation when purchased with the Origin offer last? Or is it the standard now.

@JimH2 it looks like it's a standard discount for now to save $50 when you buy the Origin + Workstation. No word from Shaper on an end date.

The free Systainer for current Origin owners preordering the Workstation ends TODAY.

Thanks,
Shane

Finishing and Painting / Re: How to stain wood like this...

I would suggest Mixol. I had a bad experience with TransFast reacting badly to a top coat even though I followed the Homestead process. I was using a WB top coat - maybe if you are not top coating or using oil based you will be OK with Homestead.

One thing I've learned is that you always save time by getting less grain raised if you use a solvent based stain. That being said, I've also found a way to get good results using a two step stain using water based products, no sanding sealer, straight to water base top coat, sanded after the first, second, third coat and any subsequent coats.

Is there a specific solvent based stain you'd recommend? I'm leaning towards Mixol

I have done this with the Transtint ...the burning is done first to your liking. My best tip is burning around each edge as well as center...gives a bit more definition if wanted
Everyone following the thread : which species of woods have been used and how did you like the results?

Another Shaper user here.  I have a small shop and I too looked at CNC machines but they would take up too much space and are more expensive.  I am a hobbyist so production is not an issue.  The Shaper board has a lot of material on the programs or sources for SVG files.  Etsy sells all kinds of SVG files as well.  Fusion 360 is the program to learn, but I have also been working in Inkscape (Free) as well.  I built my own workstation, but never the less I did order the new Shaper one.  The Shaper Origin has become the most used tool in the shop, great for pattern routering.  Easy to learn how to use, my kids, my wife, and her friends have all used it with little to no training.

It already has a box joint add-on, with more add-ons in the future I'm sure for dovetails and other joints as the software is updated.

Question regarding current items - what is the deal with Festool 575690 TCS 55 with batteries and no track, this has been discontinued and replaced with what?

@Skibum009 the Systainer has not changed for the TSC 55, just staying on-topic with the thread.

The 575690 has no direct replacement. Festool has moved to only offering a tool with no batteries/charger or track (201394) or the full set with track, batteries and charger (575747).

Festool How To... / New hose garage with WCR1000 Work Center?
« Last post by SouthRider on Today at 01:13 PM »
I removed the 1000 from my CT26 to take the vac to an office we were renovating. One of my subs trashed the hose garage - so I bought and installed the new upgraded one. Now I have the vac back in my shop - and I can't see how the 1000 will fit the new style hose garage.

I must be missing something? Ideas? Tips?
