Does the shop own a Parf Guide Drilling System?

    I own one and am happy to loan it to you. The bit is a little dull - I've contacted Lee Valley and they are able to sell the bit separately. Contact me if you'd like to borrow it. 503-858-2802

    Any luck procuring one? Happy to contribute as I’m looking to build a top myself.

    Bernd, for donations it's best to contact Aboo Balgamwalla, since he is responsible for the shop and its contents.

    Hope it works out.

    Just and update on this.  I have at least one other member willing to go in on this.  I am going to take a flyer and buy the tool and donate it to the Guild if that is appropriate, hoping we  can find a few others to share the load.  Who might i talk to to make the donation? 

    THanks everyone.

    You can certainly give it a try and ask, to see if there is any interest.  A lot of the stuff at the Guild has come from member donations.

    Alternatively, I suppose I would be willing to go in with a number of 4 others to spend maybe $50 each and buy one for the Guild to have in the Bench room for use by members.  I just cant justify the $250 cost alone for making one or two benches to own the tool myself.   

    Is that a thing folks can do?

    Sorry, no; we don't have one or currently use such tables, although we do have a Festool Domino. I'm aware of a couple of members who have made such tables, though,  so you might mention your need in the newsletter or weekly blast, to see if they would be willing to lend you the drilling guide.

    Used for laying out and drilling Festool MFT-style bench tops for exact 96mm placement of 20mm bench dog holes. Building a new bench top and wondered if the Guild Shop had one to use. Thx.
