What is a good thing? The sys3? Meh. The price? Not really. The product number? Who cares?

It could have all been so nice if they didn't nix the heights.

I was referring to it being available again in the US. With all of the items Festool has been discontinuing or restricting in certain countries it was a pleasant surprise.

@ear3 

Edward, As usual, Outstanding Work!  Like others, I love the grain on the panels.  The two base sides are special.

Thank you so much for sharing your builds and all the photos.

@Cheese  I lost count -- but checking my process photos, looks like I started the build first week of July.

@rvieceli Yeah, that pine shelf looks kind of homely now.  I'm not getting reimbursed for materials either, so it will be a while until an upgrade.  Maybe some stools around the conference table in the interim though...

Nice job Edward...the grain's the thing.  [smile]. I also really like the arch detail on the base along with the arch detail on the upper unit.

Just curious, how many hours do you have in it?

You can use one strip a couple times, just bump it out a little bit and press it back on; i'm just careful not to let the track rest on the splintergard when moving it around, etc, which i do with a brand new strip anyway.

For long cuts for me, i've just settled on ALWAYS clamping it; i use the quick clamps, you can get them most of the way there with one hand while holding the track. Then I run to the other end, clamp that end, then re-check the first end parallel guide. It's annoying as heck, but it's the method i've found to best get consistent results.

I've tried just taking the parallel guides (I have the WP ones, but same idea), just cutting, pushing against new edge, then cut again quick, and it never stays perfect consistent for me, UNLESS I have another person with me to help give the guides a little pressure against the work piece.

TOOL IDEA; Festool "auto" clamps, with batteries or whatever, with bluetooth, that while i'm holding the guides against the long edge, i can remotely clamp it all; i'd buy something like that in a heart beat! Tracks don't need super tight clamping pressure.

Does anyone have qualified opinion or experience with this? I think there will be more torque, less power assuming same 60Hz. Wonder if Japanese manufacturers even bother to make different windings for domestic and US markets and simply stick different labels.
