Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


If I had a area to work MFT's would def be the way to go. Being able to quickly set them up or set them away for space it the top reason but also because of the multiple uses for them.

Get a Festool 28 tooth blade.
it's the Festool fine 48 tooth picked up at Woodcraft.

If switching to the universal 28 tooth blade, how rough are the cuts?

There are two Festool 48 tooth blades, are you sure you got the right one? Only time I've had my 55 go into cool down mode was on 8/4 QSWO after 8 10' rips.

Not bad, saw marks but no tearing in woods with or cross grain.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Is this the right way to attach the hose to the tradesmen cleaning tubes? Seems tight and stretching out the connection on the hose

It will loosen up a little over time. I use my 36mm hose on the Kapex and TS saws. Was about a month before there cuff relaxed.
