I have a client, who just bought a new house, and his old house has some furniture that needs removing.
The biggest problem is this table....
There is a seam in the very middle of the table.
The legs are removeable.
The top is 240cm long by 120 cm wide.
The problem is that the table is on the second floor, and does not fit out any of the hallways etc to the 1st floor.
When the table was purchased they had to use a crane and remove the window to get the table in.
The window in this room is 2/3 fixed window, and 1/3 open outwards, so to take the table out, we have to get a glass shop in to remove the whole sash, the client would like to NOT have to do that this time.
If the table is cut in half, right down the middle, on the seam, it can then be removed and reassembled later in the new house, or at least that is the thinking.
Now I'm looking at using my Festool TS55, I have one 1400mm track and one 800mm track for a total of 2200mm or 220 cm long, I guess I need another length of track.
OK now this is the whole "Life in Tokyo" thing.
In the US the FS 1400/2 track is $129
Here in Japan, the same track FS 1400/2 is 28,875 yen ($230) not quite double, but you get the picture.
OK I was thinking, why not buy the 2700 (106") super long one and just be done with it....?
US FS 2700 $321
Japan FS 2700 is 109,132 yen or $871, wow!
Not sure what I'm going to do yet, I could get the extra length I need by buying a second FS 800 rail for about $150.
Yeah, life in the big city.
