Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


How do you like the hose?

Does it fit in the garage better? Is it much looser to manuvre? I had the ribs catching on finish work

Works well.

About the same.

Yes.

Everyone has, thus the redesign.

I agree with Tom.

Our crews have also agreed, much nicer not getting caught all the time.

I was worried that the hose would not fit, being a 5m instead of a 3.5m ,but it fits the hose garage nice.
The old hose always seemed to catch on everything and kept its form after taking it out of the hose garage , making it hook on things Even worse .

I think you could jump out of a plane with just that hose and land safely . It would catch on everything on the way down.

So in love with Hilti. Got bottom guide rail plate from UK. Best $3.00 that's right $3.00 ever spent.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread




Iíve been enjoying the TSP guide rail square but still check it with a tape from time to time bc that 1/16Ē makes a difference when Iím building some boxes.

Does anyone else use a tape off the back to set their rail? I can subtract 7-5/16 from the dimension and thatís the distance when I put the end of the tape to the track.

Would be nice to have a tape thatís offset by 7-5/16 (or adjustable based on your saws guide offset). Been waiting for the TSO parallel guide release, but thatís scheduled for May.
