    My Favorite Tools, FYI

    I have a lot of stuff in my workshop, but these three tools have consistently made my life much easier:

    And...
    Most exceptional customer service:

    - Milwaukee Tools. A few years ago, I broke a brand new 6" Shockwave bit driving 4" screws. I called to see if Milwaukee would replace it, admitting that I knew there was no warranty. They quickly agreed to send a replacement as a one time gesture. A few days later, I received a box of six!

    Nice bunch of tools... The Fein is a quality piece; the Bosch, too.

    I like the looks of that roller outfeed table. I was going to build a table to just at the outfeed of my Unisaw, but that looks pretty convenient. I wonder if the bracket would mount high enough to clear my dust chute. Hmmm....investigation time.

    Might be close. My Grizzly 1023SL dust chute is on the side. Including the mobile base, the distance from the floor to the top of the 4" dust port is 11", but that doesn't include any mounting flange. The bottom of the mounting bar for the outfeed table is also at 11". You might be able to get more details from Grizzly or HTC. If there is anything more I can evaluate here, let me know. Having a flip-up table really saves space.

    Re: Fein Multimaster -- The best review I read when making my purchase eight years ago stated "Overpriced, and worth every penny." Luckily, there's a little more competition now!

    I'll have to measure the distance with my dust chute.

    Nothing beats a quality hand tool. Especially if you use it all day or several hours on a project...they run smoother and as a result are less fatiguing. I'm kind of a fan of Festool...I have a Jigsaw and their T15 cordless drill.....yeah, overpriced on the drill, but wow...batteries are still great after 6 years now and the right-angle attachment? Holy crap....that thing has helped me quite a bit over the years. I would LOVE one of their Rotex sanders and dust collector..... someday........

    Grizzly is on the other end of the spectrum, price-wise. I have their 8 inch Jointer and 15 inch planer...both are fantastic tools and were an incredible value about 8 years ago when I bought them.
