    Great video Dave. Quick question. Where did you get the Euro screws from? And what are the screw size. Keep up the informative vids

    Awesome work Dave. great project and excellent video!! Would a larger vix bit have eliminated the need for enlarging the hole?

    Great video. Will try pocket holes in Melamine again I have not had much success. Get a split in the side at times. Looks like Bunnings no longer sells King Slide drawer rails its now Galioth brand

    Pure genius! This is by far the most thought-through idea for an assembly-table I’ve seen. Great job!

    Having recently bought an HKC with 1400/2 and the parf system for drilling the holes i can only advice everyone to do the same! Right now im working on ways to reduce dust. I have the 1400 set up in almost the middle on a 800×600 top. The suction is under the table where the saw blade goes. Too hard to explain how but it's pretty simple. Maybe ill make a video.

    Interesting video Dave. I wish Gorilla Gripper made a version with a longer handle so you could use the shorter handle version in your right hand and the longer handled version in your left so that you can walk sideways to the panel you are carrying and be able to carry the load with both hands! I modified my second gripper with longer handles and it worked great. A older gentleman saw it and bought it. I told him he had to leave it to me in his will. 😊. Now I’m am getting to the age he was the. Guess I need to modify my replacement that I purchased.
    Time to make thinks easier for myself! Arthur ( Arthritis ) and back issues seem to have caught up to me… 😊

    Dave I used to make my drawers out of melamine as well & with Kreg screws. Now I build them with Festool dominoes and no one sees the connection method. Works great! And I recently started using thru Dominoes just to try something different and they work great as well. No issues with either method.

    Hi Dave – great seeing work from start to finish. I was wondering – did you use the same 16mm melamine for the mitre station cabinets (top and bottom)? And is it just the stuff you can get from Bunnies and the like? I plan to build a similar (smaller) mitre station soon and am a bit hesitant to use 16mm material…
