Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: Carvex pendulum fix
« Last post by Coen on Today at 10:54 PM »

I bought the Carvex, over the Trion, simply because of weight. Have you ever held the two side-by-side? The difference is incredible.

Yes and then I bought the Trion. Overhead use has been very rare for me anyway and in normal use the weight is a bonus to me.

But it was either PS300 or PS400 at much higher price while I already owned the guide rail adapter for the PS 300.

Sure looks like it. I have one of the Delta ones, too. They're identical right down to the mold lines in the drum top and the wording of the warning labels.

Welcome, FOG is great group and welcomes all even Buckeyes [tongue]

The group has been awesome, I have learned a ton.  Full disclosure, I live in the slice of Ohio the federal government stole from Michigan so Ohio could have the port at Toledo, so I bleed maize and blue 😃

Ah yes---The Toledo War----the war to end all wars....

I watched a video comparing 3 MFT hinges including the Festool unit. I ordered the DashBoard unit. I’m really looking forward to trying it. For the record, I’ve only had one issue with the Festool hinge. That’s when a bolt loosened up. Easily fixed.

I just noticed this post. I am in Columbus Ohio too. Working in a large cabinet shop for nearly 20 years, fairly new to Festool, getting my first (DF500) in 2015.
Sweet, next time work takes me that way I’d give you a shout if you ear allowed tours!

each has their pluses and minuses. The laser will get you square corners, finer more detailed cuts, less fuzzy edges and ability to mark/label

Hi, here is and oldie but goodie
This is smart. I might have to make the MFT/3 hole larger to accommodate my chamfer bit, but it doesn't seem harder than making a special plate or table top. I need to look around and see how to get a fence attached to the MFT/3, but I don't think that'll be too hard.

If its your only trimmer I would look at just making a slightly bigger base and then wither mortising it in the table or an extension.  If you dont want to cut into the mft a piece of scrap wood with some laminate is all thats really need.
I'll give this some thought. I might be able to just find a ready made plate to save some time and borrow a Shaper Origin to directly route out the relief and hole for the router.
