Festool System Essentials with Brian Sedgeley August 13 - 14, 2022

about this workshop

This class is geared toward existing power tool users who have a basic or limited knowledge of the Festool System. In this class, Brian will cover the essential components of the Festool System, including TS plunge cut saws, dust extractors, MFT multifunction tables, jigsaws, sanders, Kapex, routers, Domino and more. Existing Festool users will learn to get the most of their existing tools by going through basic application exercises and simple calibration techniques. Participants with limited Festool experience will learn new methods of work through an introduction to the broader line of Festool tools and accessories. Though there will be some limited classroom-style presentations, the bulk of the class time will be spent in the shop using the tools. Students should have experience with, and be comfortable using, power tools such as saws, routers, joiners and sanders.

THIS CLASS IS NOT A SALES PITCH FOR FESTOOL–students who took this class in the past all agreed that it was one of the most informative workshops they have ever attended.
