So have you had a chance to check out the new Festool hose? For some time we've been using Velcro to hold our Festool cords close and tidy to the hose. But this new hose is the way to go. Click here to get the details at Festool Products.com

Another great example of our customers putting their MFSlab to use. Eric says "I'm considering selling my Festool MFT as I rarely drag it out anymore". I've been hearing similar sentiments from several of my clients who have fallen in love with their new MFSlab. As you can see in the images below Eric has also done a great job of modifying the tool shelf to nest nicely onto both sawhorses he already owned as well as his MFT. This can easily be done by either modifying the drawing in a CAD program (your CNC shop should be able to do this for you) or by simply cutting the shelf after it's produced. I also like how Eric has routed his screw troughs along the opposite edge of the table top allowing for much larger troughs.

The MFSlab has just been featured in the Tools of the Trade news letter by David Frane. If you're not familiar with this free weekly news letter about everything tools you'll really want to check it out. David features many new products from all the major tool manufactures as well as many tool modifications from wood workers like myself. He even includes factory tours now and again, a personal favorite. I find there's always lots of interesting features in his email.

Gary Katz of This is Carpentry and The Katz Road Show was kind enough to post an article about the MFS. There are some great comments and feedback from his pro wood-worker readers.

The Multi Function Slab has been a game changer for my furniture business. I operate out of a small shop and space is of the utmost importance. I have all the clamping and track saw possibilities I could ever need in this 3' x 5' work bench. It's not too often you can combine a light and easily transportable work bench with so many different functions. I can do precise and quality work in a fraction of the time. To top it all off I was able to add this to my shop without hurting my wallet much at all and it's already paid dividends in how efficient and accurate my furniture process is. I tell every woodworker I know how affordable and essential this work bench can be to them in their shop too.
