Tried it out cutting frp panels a week back and the performance was bad to meh.

Overall I wish it had more power but it's handy for drywall so I'll keep it around.

Also the bare tool comes with a dust hood and 3 disks.

Thanks for the update.

Best way to cut FRP is with a track saw. I did a meat cooler in Feb, that took 30 10 sheets.

The stop lock that attaches to the track works on the Festool track but not on the Makita track. The slot it uses is too skinny

The battle against the organizers. Trying for the umpteenth time to figure out how to fit all the tools in all the boxes. I don't normally plug the crate on top like that but the wife won't hit it with the car if it's in the air.

That will become an art in short time. Get a label maker it'll make life much easier.

It's difficult to find a good spot on the boxes for labels. When they're stacked you can't see the labels.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


My packout is small enough I know where everything is. Eventually I may be at the point where I can label different set ups for different tasks. Might dedicate one of those small totes as a track saw square/connector holder.

I like that idea for chaining them Mike. That's clever.

I don't always bring a lunch but I try to. Usually leftovers or soup or whatever is easy to eat, but if I'm near a local favourite, I like to treat myself sometimes. I always bring something though, small snacks for if I get really hungry between breaks, or driving back to the shop so it's nice to not use a plastic bag anymore for that at least.
