Just brought my first Rotex sander and the CT22 home. Looking forward
to not having to wear the dual cartridge mask while sanding.
Unfortunately the plunge saw was back ordered. I've got a Laguna
sliding table and it still looks easier to cut sheet goods with the
plunge saw then trying to muscle 3/4" plywood around.
Definitely is for me, particularly when you consider that you can get
equal accuracy/cut quality with the plunge saw and guide rail.
Since I batch cut cabinet parts, and if I didn't have a table saw, I
would definitely want the parallel guide system as well.
This appears to be a fair review of that item:
That is the same model I purchased, and got two of the 55" tracks
which I did bring home. I'll have to take a look at the stops though
as they look handy. Hopefully I'll get the saw in the next week.
Have some home projects to finish up and it will be nice to cut some
pieces right where I'm working without quite as much mess. Thanks for
That guy has lots of Festools. He really likes them. When are you going to
pony up and buy more Festools than he has? After all, its a competition,
He obviously uses the tools. And his comments are relevant to folks who make
their living with their tools.
LOL ... I'm getting there. If the job requires it I've never balked at
purchasing tools that increase productivity. At this point if Festool
has it and the job requires it, the job is going to pay for it. :)
Ayup ... and Festool is uncannily designed for on-site accuracy and
increased productivity. I'm seeing more and more trim carpenters with
the tell tale Systainers in the back of pickups and vans.
And, for anyone looking to expand their systainer set or otherwise
interested, Lee Valley Tools sells a wide variety of Systainer Boxes,
Drawer Systainers, Systainer Dolly, Polystyrene trays, Foam inserts,
Mini Systainers and accessories, Systainer sets, A 3 sided lid insert.
Did you say the shop is in the house and the room is included in the
house air system? This seem very problematic. One would think you
would want to isolate you home air system from the shop air. If not, I
would think about adding some additional filtering on the return from
the shop or you are adding fine particulate matter to your whole
house, lungs, kids, lungs, etc.
:> One factor I want to be careful about is that (a) the shop is inside the:> house, and (b) there is one air return in the shop, directly above the:> door, which is in the SE corner.

It's actually in a guesthouse, not the main house. I have considered
adding a single room air conditioner to the shop and closing off the vent
to isolate the shop from the rest of the guesthouse.
