Are you talking about the 5037 or 5137?

The 5037 has the "fold-over" or "tunnel" style loop, not slits cut in the leather. Does that help? It looks like the 5137 is made the same way, but I...

2P10 or Titebond is great for joints, but I think the OP is talking about the entire run. There are situations where I will use PowerGrab or the PL Panel and Trim, but not as a rule.

I have to agree 100% with Warner on this one. You can get glue ready edges using a track saw and a good quality blade, and the results are nearly equal to that of a jointer.

That is a great little saw.

The Festool has a big advantage (even over the Makita SP6000K) when making these types of cuts, at that is the riving knife.

I am a big fan of the systainers, but the LBOXX looks like it might be a little easier to stack and separate.

You are 100% correct. The problem is that once you put that stud in a house you built, the lawyers come out of the woodwork (pun intended). It's all about liability.

I have the Festool C12, and it is the best drill I have used. It has tremendous power for a 12v system. The biggest advantage, as Darcy suggested, the control. It has all the power you...

I have a Leica D3, and use it all the time. Invaluable for trim work, and deadly accurate. It has had a dedicated spot in my pouch for a couple years now.
