Show Your Setups / Tool ****


Im a tool junkie,yes i said it

It took me about 15years to finally get a decent set up that i feel comfortable with,yet i find myself still in search of that perfect set up thats light,powerful,easy to transport, ETC!
Although all my stuff is top shelf i still find myself shopping and now drinking the green cool aid.

so show me your setups / tool **** so maybe i can come to a conclusion of what i need or that what i have is just what i need!!

i,ll kick it off with some makita stuff and green cool aid

ENJOY

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


Boy that makita 2704 table saw is the bomb, the height is adjustable and sits about a 1/4" higher than the mft/3 perfect!! and cuts 3 5/8 high rips 2x4s on a single pass! Can your bosch do that?

These festool sanders are sweet, ive sanded steps,deck rails, solid mahogany with hardly any dust to clean!!
The last 2 pics are of the sander in motion the little dust thats on the rail of the table is from sanding on edge!!

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


Turn that ETS 150 on with out holding on to it, it will just stay in place and sand!!
Couple that sander with a RO150 and you have an unstopable pair of sanders that will accomplish any task you throw at them. They are the nicest sanders to use all day long.

Monday I am setting up for a few hundred feet of crown and some base and case.
I will take a picture of that. I might have to paintshop my Kapex extensions in, they are my christmas present.

ENJOY
It is funny that you should post this just now as i am "building a new Kit" for jamb out window replacement for Lead abatement projects (HUD, EPA, and state grant work). Speed is key and for 85% "fair" is the level of workmanship that is acceptable. So this is a different world than real "carpentry" where fit and finish is the way to more work.

Here is what is needed
6Mil plastic sheeting
a way to cut it to fit window sizes in the home
Ashort step to reach the tops of the windows to tape off
2" maksing tape
Caulk
HEPA vac
Ladders
a way to take out the blind stop from the outside. (if you pull the windows from the outside by removing the blind stops your lead work area is outside the living space, and you are not required to clean the living space and pass the clearance testing with 3rd party wipe samples saving $$$ even though it seems wrong to break out the blind stops with a prybar and then rebuild the exterior trim instead of installing the jambouts from the inside like they are designed)
1x2"trim stock
miter saw
trim gun


My new window kit
1 sys4 for tape and caulk (Stays inside to keep warm and to be used as a step)
holds 24 tubes of caulk both clear and white acrylic
7 rolls of tape
caulk gun
paper towles
and tape gun

1 sys 4 trim kit
I am thinking the De Walt 18 ga cordless as it is a pain to drag comperssor hose gun and cord out when only the nailer is avaliable

a couple of shark grip 300 trim bars

a flooring mallet those heavy steel rubber combo mallets are prefect for ,demo/adjusting, out of plumb jambs

Hilti Cf Ds 1 foam dispensing system

Attix 8 HEPA

and for cutting trim I have been using the Festool Trion with ultra clean blades.

This setup allows me to make one trip inside and one outside to set up.

Sorry for this rambling post (will probably clean it up)

here is my best tool ****

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


Nice set up Craig. I did not see the second video. I'm enjoying seeing everyone's trailer as I'm tearing my out next week and redoing it and I've made a few notes of the better ideas (in my mind).

Here is my ****. This is my drill tote based on Gary Katz idea, but adding a sortainer. and my chop saw with BBQ lights for when I'm inside so I can be perfect on my cuts.

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


pullin the outside stops isn't to bad if the grain is running straight
but it can be a real bear if its a quarter sawn pcs and the grain runs under the caseing




oh and all you guys with the sexy tools suck

How are you liking the new makita scms? I love it! I see you are using a dewalt blade. I used the original blade for a bunch or mdf trims, it was done after that. I bought a diablo 80 tooth, it was horrible the vibration was terrible right out of the package! I just picked up a dewalt 60 tooth, the all yellow one. That baby is a nice blade!

Trying to build cabinets for the trailer to get better organized. It's way cramped in there ripping down some plywood. You can see the face frame in the back ground. There is a table saw under the 3/4" sheet.

I am it is on the need to get list. Used one on demo day last month and was sold right away. Just waiting until after the holiday season and seeing the damage to the bank acount from the wifes shopping. You festool guys have quietly converted me.

Oh see the water line at about 5' tall that is from the flood in summer 08 and the big crack in the floor came from then as well.

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


The Chopshop hood is really quite nice. It does take up space is the big Con. (That and some 20 lbs would be the big pro for the Kapex). If I'm outside and no BMW's around I just cut w/o the hood. It adds a bit of safety in that if something goes flying off the back the hood stops it.

My C12 has worked really well, and it is the go to drill in my kit.

Re: Show Your Setups / Tool ****


Here is the second video It is my Makita LS0714 hooked up to a shop vac cutting 21, 11" Pieces of partical board I left the video unedited for time so you could see the whole process skip to 2:10 to bypass all the cuts

I think this little saw has the BEST dust collection Period. I posted the video and a challenge to Kapax owners to match it on the FOG in October no takers so far. The saw weighs 27 Lbs

I don't remember the last time I actually bought any of that crap.

If you mail me a piece, I will test my kapex.

I use plywood for all most everything.
