Introduction: Pier 9 Workshop - Introduction to Festool Products

Here at the Pier we have a few Festool products. Why? Because they are cool. But the downside is they are expensive tools, so we want users to know the proper way to use them.

This Instructable links you to videos that will show what the tools are capable of and some basic instructions, so when you come ask Shop Staff for help you have an idea of how the tool works.

Tools:

Domino XL

Plunge Saw

Router

We also have a Kapex Sliding Compound Miter Saw but you must take the Basic Wood class to learn how to use it.

The Festool video isn't so much of a tutorial but a how to set up. This is good to watch so you know where and what all the switches are.
