Tom with Tool-Home could be who you were thinking of. That's who Tom's go to dealer was.

Bob has been the only dealer I've used except for an item he didn't have available. He has given excellent service and I'll for sure miss him.

Have you all checked out TSOs system/offerings? Iím getting excited about my mft tables again thanks to these guys.

I have the gsr 16 , will get the stop when it comes out. I really like the rail clips to hold the track tight to the dog.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Does anyone know of a cheap blade for the TS75 to cut soapstone? I used the carbide it came with on my last soapstone project but it's about shot now. Or the best way to ream out a tile saw blade?

Not sure if this will work.

https://www.festoolproducts.com/cmt-...x-4-teeth.html

Other option is take a 7" - 7-1/4" diamond blade to a machine shop and have them ream the bore to 30 mm.

Went thru this a few years ago over on the FOG forums.

I met Tom the year before he passed away. He was running his business out of a couple of storage lockers/commercial spot on S. Lamar in Austin.

I've seen that blade but but $100 is a deal breaker. I was just going to get the 5" makita and rail guide for $200 so I don't beat up the ts75.

I ended up using an Oshlun non ferrous metal blade to rough cut the pieces then ran them through the table saw with an old wet saw blade. Worked fine.

I was considering this blade, probably would've worked.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


thx for the video on the TSO products. Ordered my guide rail and waiting until tomorrow to order the parallel guide.

Looking forward to them since I have a full kitchen build coming up this month.

I use Oshlun 48t carbides all the time for soapstone.

Slabs never see a wet saw.

No need.

Once you get the GRS, make some test cuts. A few have had problems because their rail was bent at the end.

Any questions, just ask.

I thought of using the method for testing the Kapex makes sense. Make a cut, turn 90 degrees and perform 3 more times then measure the final angle. Reminds me I need to tune up the Kapex
