About this deal

In this video I make a MFT top for my new workbench / assembly table for use with bench dogs, fences and accessories without the use of a CNC or any expensive guide jig systems. To reduce the risk of serious injury and/or damage to your Festool product, always read, understand and follow all warnings and instructions in your Festool product's Instruction Manual. If each top lasts a three or four years I will be in my mid seventies before it would be cheaper to make my own standard tops.

Replacing the top on my MFT isn't a big deal - it's only held on by four screws - but it's in such an awkward location that everything needs to come out - and off - for me to be able to do it right. Partially plunge the 20 mm bit to align it with each hole in the first row, which means that you are essentially using the holes in the first row as a series of parallel guides to align the holey rail. Yesterday I setting up the spare top to use on a Dewalt miter saw stand and discovered that some Delrin dogs (I bought at some point) fit the holes nicely so I got got out my best big machinist square and checked the pattern. I guess that can also be said for various jigs and aids, but those were created for a purpose that the Festool MFT's were not. Finally I want to talk briefly about the MFT accessories that I plan to use going forward, and here they are - all of these came from BenchDogs.

There are also variations in the thickness of the paper surfaces, some is thin and some is more like 3/32"/1mm or greater MDF like product.

Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. The Makers Workbench is supplied with a standard 150grit finish, leaving the striking black/grey and wood fibre core exposed. if you take a point and draw a vertical straight line that measures 3 of whatever unit of measurement you prefer to use, and then you draw a horizontal line from that same point that measures 4, the distance between those two points to make a true right angle triangle must be equal to 5. Quote from: Crazyraceguy on March 01, 2023, 05:10 PM The main piece of advice I would give to anyone planning to make their own top is to apply the finish before drilling/routing the holes. I want my table top to be 1800mm long by 800mm wide, and here I'm measuring and marking up so that I can cut it to size - obviously I'm making sure to work from my square reference corner of the sheet.Compact™ 88 is a balanced blend of responsibly sourced wood fibres, bonding agents, resins, heat and then pressure. Used to hold standard prepared timber on its edge, these platform saddles make for a fast and flexible method of creating a sacrificial work standoff.
