Hi @AndrewG

That does not look right. You should be creating a 6 - 8 -10 triangle. Maybe it is the angle of the camera - the left hand pin in the top ruler should be in the same column as the pin on the left on the angled ruler. Also, the number of 96 mm spaces should be 6 between those two pins.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply. I’ve attached another photo which hopefully is clearer for you. I’m pretty confident it’s real but just want the tick of approval before I start drilling!

Many thanks.

Fein is still independent. They do share technology with other companies and Fein will be using Bosch battery tech in new tools.

Festool Tool Problems / Re: Help Domino xl 700 slowing down.

Thanks guys for helping. Anyways I did run it completely to my APC ups 1500 running only backup battery not plug to the grid it still have the same issue. So I think this will result in the same problem no matter where I bring the machine to another house.

That's what logic says, but after all that has been done so far, the only two things that are possibly different to the testing Festool has done, is the mains, or the way it's being used. So I would still say bring it to work or somewhere else to at least rule out some weird thing with the mains.

At this point what have you got to lose by not ruling out anything you can?

I have one battery platform too many, and seeing as Fein are pulling out of Australia, I have sold my Fein gear and being replacing with Festool. Latest addition is the OSC 18v Vecturo. Still need an angle grinder and rotary hammer.

I thought Festool bought Fein? The Slugger cold saw  got a while back shows up on my Festool warranty list, as does my Fein multi tool.

Not sure if they bought them, but they are also distributed by TTS down here.

what laminate is that? it looks good.  I know what you are saying about the bending ply being stuff. however do you run into any issues with the segments telegraphing or are you tightly spacing the kerfs every 1/4" or so. do you have a go to kerf spacing and depth you find works with most of what you do.  I know it will vary but figured you have a starting point of what works and doesnt

ChuckS, back when I was doing that everyday, I would use an entire bottle's worth from the big Glubot in a single day. At the volume I was using, I would never have considered the baby one.
I still use one of the big ones, but not exclusively. I use the regular condiment-type bottles most of the time.

Not today, but Saturday afternoon, I git a Bosch laser measuring device. It's just the smaller, indoor, short-range unit, but it's pretty cool.
Agreed. The baby bot, as the name suggests, is good for small jobs only. The glue flow is too small and slow for big glue-ups.

I got the Pliers set today. It has been on pre-order for a few weeks, shipped Friday. The outer box looked a bit haggered, but it was fine inside.

Yeah, absolutely beautiful work!
The curves must have been a challenge throughout a project of that size, no? :-)

Not really anymore. In days past, this would have been done with bending ply, usually 2 layers. That stuff is really poor quality and hard to work with. Then you have to do it twice, after spreading glue between the layers. Sanding and filling the cracks and other imperfections comes in there too.
As it is now, I do this by the kerf bending method. It is made very easy because of a very expensive computerized panel saw. All I have to do is program the depth and step-over of the grooves, hit the button and walk away. It is totally automatic at that point.
The soffit panels are plywood. They were kerfed and then glued/stapled from the front, then laminated over that. The cabinet backs are done the opposite way. The laminate is applied to the sheet first, then the whole thing gets applied to the cabinet from behind. They are surface mounted 3/4" thick backs, in this case. Laminating curved pieces takes a bit of practice, but this is a pretty gentle bend/radius.
For the most part, the things I build are large. Reception desks, nurses stations, teller walls, bars, bookcases, display cases, etc. for commercial buildings.
Actually, the most difficult part of this kind of job is edgebanding the radiused shelves, unless you have a Conturo or similar machine. Doing it by hand without something like that is quite tedious.
