History and Modern use of Planes

Saturday July 14, 2018

by Mark Jannusch



CU Dreamshop manager Mark Jannusch will be doing our second saturday seminar on July 14.  He'll be talking about the history of planes, where we've come from, and where we are now.  This seminar should have something to offer both the novice and advanced plane user. We'll cover the basic anatomy of the plane and then move on to maintaining and caring for your planes. 


Have you wanted to get your own planes but not sure what to look for?  We'll teach you what makes a good plane.  Need advice on how to restore old planes?  Mark's the one to ask.  Looking forward to seeing you at our July second saturday Seminar!

Discontinued Festool Dust Extractors


Out with the old in with the new!
Festool has discontinued some of their older equipment and we're happy to announce that we will be running a special on the now discontinued models of dust extractors.  The three main differences between the models of dust extractors are that the new models have the new style of hose, a new and stronger plastic for the upper garage, and an improved t-lock system for the front. Otherwise the models are identical.
Limited supply available! If you've been saving up for a dust extractor or need an extra one now is a great time to buy!  
Check the chart below for our stock and pricing for these discontinued dust extractors.


CT-MIDI $509.00
CT-26 $657.00
CT-36 $711.00
CT-48 $747.00


As these are discontinued models of the dust extractors are supplies are limited and no discount will be given on the new tools in compliance with Festool's vendor policies.


Exotic Cutoffs


These were popular the first time around, CU Woodshop was finally able to get another 600lbs of exotic cutoffs back into the store!  There's a mix of purpleheart, padauk, bloodwood, wenge, zebrawood, lacewood, canarywood, pink ivory, cherry, and walnut all mixed together and available at CUWS now for $5.00 / pound.
