Yup, still making them! I went to decals for the numbers and custom order names if they want. Like anything making one or two sucks. When I get enough scraps I make a bunch all at once. I made a jig for the planer and the router. Lost money on the first two but now they are a money maker.
As with all this “arts and crafty” stuff it’s about…[Read more]

house is stalled. Not a prob as the kids love being in town and it’s easier for school.
I had electronic issues on the control board
It appears (in my experience) that the US has WAY better warranty service then in Canada.
I did have my vac replaced under warranty. I am a little fuzzy on the details but I believe it’s a full replacement with in the first 30 days and a repair OR replacement after that. I was outside of the 30 days and it was a fight for the full replacement.…[Read more]
as with most inserts, it’s a complete waste of space.
I go with the throw them all in approach with my vac attachments.
Still loving this vac no issues since my replacement, used daily.

there isn’t a noticeable difference.
This is a dust buster over a vac IMO. It’s not going to pick up wood chips or the gravel in your truck floor mats.
It’s great for dry wall dust, crumbs in drawers, and fine saw dust.
I wouldn’t be without it but a powerhouse it is not. It’s small, uses my battery system, the wife likes it around the…[Read more]
here is a good article on cold battery temps and li-ion batteries.

Mine def has it’s limitations, but I like that it is on a rail of it’s own.
looking forward to your video review.
It’s kinda like this isn’t it? But not adjustable. Also available in a Maffel version.
I have one, works great for short rails/cuts, not so much on longer rails/cuts.

Your busy season over and getting ready for the holidays I assume?
Howdy, Life’s been fun around here. Harvest is over (well until spring, we have 300 acres of flax that didn’t get off)

They are the same as far as I can tell.
The two big differences, the 1617 plunge base is, well, JUNK. All of my MR23 plunge bases are silky smooth. That and the trigger in the MR23 handle is so much nicer then the on/off switch for hand held work.
Get both (well all three) of the bosch routers.
I have 2 1617 in tables.
I have 2 MR23 with about 5 or 6 basses for handheld work.
I have 2 colts WITH the plunge base for hand held work.
ALL great routers and I wouldn’t be without and of them.
I’ve got this saw coming from BTP. Can anyone tell me if the accessories from the JS572 corded version will fit on the 12V?
Things like the edge guide, anti splinter inserts, dust collection and the FSN rail attachment?
Here’s a plan, if you don’t like it (and by “it” I mean, DWB, this thread, the topic etc), stay out of it. It’s pretty simple.
If you are here to see what DWB is up to (and he’s had some cool projects, stories and shenanigans) then stick around.
I am sure that DWB would even love to answer any of your questions.
As for the other threads,…[Read more]
Dust collector or Vacuum?
This saw needs high suction. The Festool and Bosch vacs aren’t enough IMO. A dust collector isn’t even worth hooking up to such a small port.
I’ve had this saw for over a year (might be closer to 2?? ) and I have it hooked up to my rigid “screamer” with the festool apron and I am more then pleased with the results…[Read more]
Nope, wasn’t me. I had different issues. Not sure how the semi vacs work. Must be a switch or is your hose restricted? I thought I read you could cover the end and restrict flow and it would pulse?? Could be wrong though.
Sooo.. it does have a PC pattern, it’s marked B on the bottom and list the GOF1600 which is essentially the MR23.
I was correct in thinking I am only using the two screws and I have the colt base attached!

Sorry, I just got home and haven’t looked yet. The MR23 and 1617 do have the PC pattern but I am going to bet that the FSN OFA does not. I am pretty sure I only have it on with 2 screws. I’m off to check!
I will check this afternoon for you. I only have bosch routers but I will get some measurements and take some pictures.
you guys are lucky. Our streaming music sucks in Canada. I’ve been using the PB360 on the boat all summer. It works great. Using the airport express on the battery now so I can stream without being plugged in.
It would be nice if they included an airplay option but my airport hack is working.
