First impressions of the tracks are good. Eyed them over and they look flat and straight, put them back to back and there was no gap. I'll go over them in more detail this week. Anything in particular you guys want to know? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...bd39708aa3.jpg

Are the connectors like Festools with a screw that tightens against to rail or like Makitas where the screw separates 2 pieces of metal to tighten inside the groove?

They are the festool style but with Allen screws instead of flat head

Andrew,

If you're looking for good rail connectors get these from TSO. As you snug the set screws, they align the rails. FULL DISCLOSURE----I was part of the beta test group for these (and many other TSO products, test products to this day).

I'm going to try this for the first time tomorrow. I plan on using the two dots with wood glue method. Any tips?

Probably.

4 revisions, over a year of development in the connectors.

Their parallel guides they just released took over 2 years to bring to market.

Don't glue your fingers together.

It's more like 2P-2

They say 10 seconds. I have yet to have that much time. It's more like 2 seconds.

Don't let the yellow and clear mix or it won't dry.

Theyíre stocked even though the website said I had to special order it :rolleyes:


I almost picked up some packout shlt but I had to go online to get prices for all of it, no prices posted. By the time I priced all the pcs out I was too pissed to spend any more money there. F home depot.

FYI, There’s no quick clamp on the inflator, it must be threaded on to the stem. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tire inflator without a quick clamp in my life.

I saw that, but not a deal breaker for me. I like that it came with the different attachments, didn't realize it was going to

Bought a 2nd Milwaukee fan. One to keep in the shop and one to keep on the truck. Installing the closet cabinets and having the fan was really nice. But I had to remember to take the fan with me. Now it'll be there on the truck all the time. I carry 4 batteries on the truck so that's good for 2 (8hr) days at high.

I didn't care for that either, although I like the pump. I bought a Schrader to 1/4" pipe adapter off eBay that solved that issue.

How does that work?

Delta 3hp X5, Ridgid jointer, Husky compressor. Got it all for a heck of a deal

But between this purchase and all the festool stuff a week or so ago, I think I need to curb the spending for a while lol
