Have not run a lot of material through them but so far so good. I have a feather board for my CMS but these working as a hold down to really save a lot of messing around on the CMS.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Got it done at last. What a pain in the ass making a template to cut the hole out for the router. But I have tested it a few times already and it works great. The dust extraction is unreal even with the upper guard removed. The jessem material feed guides work great to. Plus I still have use of the table for the kapex do no need to carry around a extra table for the router. It will also function as a jointer too which is nice fir some bits on site I need to straiten up.

Base is 2 pieces of 3/4 ply glued up and with a slight hump in the middle that drops to almost dead flat when the router is installed.

I already had every part sitting around doing nothing except the kreg router supports $19.99 and a sheet of cabinet grade mdf $40.

But if I figured everything there from scratch prob about $1800 for the complete router table setup + the vac.

My goal was to be able to use what I had left over from my CMS-GE but not take anymore room up in the trailer but still have full use of every tool. Its not very often I need a router table on site but now I can set one up in the MFT kapex in mins its handy to have.

Next time you have to make a temple around a square use your Kreg jig to join pieces that lace around the square. A top bearing bit follows the inside of the template.

I use a 1/4" bit with 2 top bearings.

I thought about doing that or buying the festool jig kit for $500 as it would be handy to have. I got it to within about a 32nd but I wanted it perfect. My mates currently building a cnc that can fit that size sheet into so next time he's milling it on that lol.

I'm tempted to glue some kind of phenolic sheet over the mdf. Any recommendations on where to purchase some to put over it.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Does anyone here have any feedback on the Ti15? I just had Acme order one in for me to look at. From what I can see, it's a bad ass impact that is also seemingly larger than my Makita brushless. Also, I'm wondering if the drill setting is as powerfull as I want it to be. Basically, is it both an impact AND and drill, or just an impact that can drill

Any thought appreciated before I drop $560.
Thanks

Being a hybrid, it does not appear to work well for most. I have read posts from some who love the Ti15.

It's not really great at being a drill or impact. It's really under powered compared to even a $250 impact or even my 7 year old makita impact. It def has the typical festool quality and feel but falls short on performance by quit a bit. Had over to FOG and check the reviews out. Most are not good. There's even been a couple guys on here buy it then return it.

But test it for 30 days and see how you get on with it. I tried it out and it done what I asked it to but it just didn't do enough for $500+ I bought the cxs and kept my makita drill and impact and I'm gonna add a second cxs because I love it so much.
