Festool DIY stuff
shelf pin holes, dogs, repetitive cuts…

Hi I just blogged a wee Festool explosion, made some stuff this week and wanted to share it with you.
The jigs can be used on any track system.

First off is a jig for making shelf pin holes in cabinets, with a track router, an old project idea, that finally was brought to life, don’t get scared, anyone can make this, even it looks a wee complicated at first.
Second is a jig for repetitive cuts with track saws, when in the field, this is made of curtain T-tracks and some plywood, you will love to have this, if you have to do multiple cuts from time to time.
Even more simple is the hold down blocks for the track, just make them!
Finally some ramblings about dogs, bench dogs, wrrroouuuffff.

This post is from the following blogs:
Shelf pin holes for track routers:
Track saw repetitive cuts on the go:
Track saw track hold downs:
Bench dogs for the 20mm holes:

1. Shelf pin holes for track routers jig.
2. The mechanism I made.
3. Track saw jig for repetitive cuts.
4. Jig for repetitive cuts.
5. Track saw track hold downs.
6. 20mm dogs ramblings.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, at least for the Festool users.
