Review of Festool Ti-15 Hybrid Impact Driver I've had a Festool Ti-15 hybrid impact driver for about a month now; Festool USA kindly sent me one before the October 1st public launch for review purposes. Thanks! The Ti-15 is labeled a hybrid impact driver because it can also operate like a regular drill; for the tradesman, this can simplify life by giving you only one thing to carry for both functions and one set of batteries to keep track of. And like most of today's hybrids, it's green After editing this review, I realized it's a half hour. Some parts talking about how an impact driver works might bore those of you who already know; have a sudoku ready. But I've talked to people who don't know the benefits of 'impact' mode so it seemed relevant. Besides, you guys should be used to my long reviews :) The review ends with some demos mostly of the impact mode; we're all pretty familiar with a drill :) Popcorn ready? (Sudoku, too?!) cue it up...

Festool TS Track Saw - Unmistakably the best saw you'll ever own! Festool TS Plunge Cut Saws deliver the capabilities of a table saw, a miter saw, a radial arm saw, and even a panel saw, all with unmatched precision in a compact, portable design. Festool invented the guide rail/saw over 45 years ago, and has continuously set new and higher standards for laser-straight precision- cutting with the TS plunge-cut saws. Want to experience a saw that makes laser-straight cuts every time? Or make a cutout in a very expensive piece of wood? How about creating glue-ready cuts without the need for rework? Well, the TS saws can do all of this and more. Big on power, small in size, the TS 55 makes quick work of sheet goods with greater accuracy and far more versatility than a panel saw. When paired with the MFT/3, it rivals the precision and capability of virtually every table saw or miter saw available. And, nothing beats the convenience of the TS 55 for cutting down panels. When you need more capacity, turn to the TS 75. MMC electronics mean that cuts will be burn-free and glue- ready, even in thick or stacked material. Plus, with the slip clutch, the risk of kickback is minimized. With 1600 watts of power and almost 2-3/4" of cutting capacity, cutting three or four sheets at a time is a breeze.

Mine is a heavily modified MFT-1080 (discontinued) but I explain the benefits of all the models. This is the first of a series of videos. The others cover the modifications and how to use Qwas dogs to rapidly calibrate the table, for field cuts, and for using the MFT to make repeatable long cuts.

Festool CMS Router Table Sliding Table (492100) The Sliding Table provides even greater functionality to the CMS Router Table in many ways. First, it multiplies the surface area of the table which translates to greater controllability when maneuvering material and it increases the transfer of stock on the table by providing a rolling support surface that moves with the workpiece. With its integrated, adjustable stop points it is easy to set up repeat cuts like stopped dados. Also built-in to the sliding table are multiple mounting points for the optional miter gauge assembly with fence. The assemble in conjunction with the sliding table provides the means to set angles as well as clamp the material to the fence of the gauge and move the entire piece in harmony with the sliding table. The Sliding Table is included in the Set Version of the CMS GE or CMS VL, or can be purchased separately.
Festool Domino Jointer Mortise and tenon joining has always been a difficult, time consuming process. Never again, thanks to Festool's new Domino system. It's ideal for making furniture frame construction, window and door construction, frame and panel construction, tables, chairs and cabinets, even face frames. The system consists of two key components, the Domino joiner and pre-fabricated, solid Beech Domino tenons. The joiner's revolutionary cutting method, simple indexing and adjustable mortise sizing makes flawless, repeatable cuts every single time. It utilizes unique cutters (5, 6, 8 and 10mm) that both turn and oscillate to make crisp cuts with no kickback. An adjustable fence allows angles from 0 to 90° with five preset stops and a depth stop gives you precise adjustment for five depths. The cross stop allows the joiner to index itself for repeat hole spacing without marking your work and the trim stop is for use on narrow material with widths between 7/8" and 2-34". Finally, Domino tenons are far stronger than biscuits or dowels, have a large gluing surface area for extra strength and are 100% rotation proof. The DF 500 Set comes in a Systainer case and includes the Domino Joiner, D5 (5mm) cutter, trim stop, cross stop, support bracket, wrench and plug-it cord.
