What is the work bench / work table that I see Tom Silva using? It has a top with multiple holes and is split down the middle to allow him to clamp routers and other tools between the halves.
This seems like some sort of uberWorkMate.
Guess what? I may have found the answer myself. I think it is a Festool product. Tommy seems to like them. I believe his little cordless drill/screwdriver is a Festool, and I remember seeing him demonstrate a plunge saw with guide to cut panels.
Is it possible that Germany is making better quality, more innovative tools than the Chinese made ones that carry North American brand names?
