Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: For CMS owners. DIY inserts?
« Last post by trebuchet on Today at 03:14 AM »
Thanks but there is no heavy router there
Any other suggestions?

I wish Festool would include a small 8mm router bit starter set . Maybe a straight , 1/4 roundover , small 45 chamfer and a flush trim bit.

They're too skimpy to include a few sandpapers that cost almost nothing with their sanders, they surely won't include $150 worth of router bits. And to be honest, I wouldn't expect that last thing.

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Time for a new table saw...

Thanks everyone for all of the great information.

Looks like it is time to dig deep into the wallet and go with the sawstop. I can live without the extra capacity being that I have a track saw. Fixing up an old model sounds like a fun project. I just don’t have the dedicated space in the garage. I am just a hobbyist so if I lost some fingers it would have a major impact on my day job. The funny thing is that I’ve never had a close call on a table saw but I have had some with my sliding miter. I thought I saw a rumor that the kapex might get a blade brake which would be interesting.

Festool Tool Problems / Re: TID 18 forward/reverse problem

I've had this happen once or twice with my Ti15. Very rarely, so I forgot about it. I remember I read a post from Rick Christopherson once where I believe he said the forward/reverse switches of Festool drills work with a magnet. I guess the electronics that detect the position got confused.

Not once happened with my T15 though.

Try gently warming the bolts with a heat gun.  Many thread lock compounds are thermo active.

They used to have a set.  Not sure if it was available in the US but I was lucky enough to pick up this one on eBay last year.

When I bought my 1010 router it had a 8mm collet on it which swapped out for the 1/4 collet cause I had no 8mm bits. I was lucky enough to find a Bosch 30 pc 8mm set on Amazon from Amazon uk. I wish Festool would include a small 8mm router bit starter set . Maybe a straight , 1/4 roundover , small 45 chamfer and a flush trim bit. If customers liked how well the 8mms performed compared to the 1/4 shank  it’s they might seek out some Festool bits. I got a 22 degree Festool chamfer coming from eBay plus a 11mm(7/16) Festool straight bit on back order on Amazon.

I generally run mine further to the left (of your pic) with the base of the router partly on the rail itself.
Then drop the little follower/foot down to keep it supported. This puts one of the adjuster mechanisms outside the rail. You can put either side of the pair toward the router, it doesn't matter at all.
Thank you.  I have an older rail so no second t-track. Is the micro adjust limited to certain range? Or is it unlimited?

I have not heard of that, but I would send it in as the electronics should be replaced. Does it happen at all speeds?
