Hi all,

I’ve made my first MFT style table using the Axminster PARF Mk2 system. As you can see in the pictures I ended up making two surfaces in 18mm WPB ply, the second being on folding shelf brackets.
I’ve been overdosing on Peter Mallard videos recently and following his review I bought the Scheppach HD2P extractor vac (all I could afford after the PARF purchase..). I’ve been looking at ways of switching it on automatically and came to the conclusion that a wireless remote control would work out best for me. The vac has lots of space inside for additional electronics bits and I bought a wireless controller from Ebay and installed it. It’s wired in parallel with the original switch so either the switch or the remote control will power it on. The remote control is held on to the saw with Velcro and may be revised in the future. The Scheppach is great for the price but the hose is stiff and horrible so may have to be replaced in the future.
