Re: Festool rotex

Thank you for the reply.

I've taken the plunge and ordered one after watching various videos and found a few reviews.
I'm hopeing it will make life abit easier i.e possibly just taking one sander out with me also be very useful for the workshop.

Re: Double sliding doors

Hi thanks for the reply
There are on internal doors between two rooms.
My first thought was to use a standard track but I may need to go the synchronised route maybe to stop both doors moving as one door when together if this makes sense.

Double sliding doors

Hi all I have a set of double sliding doors to make each door is narrow only 16" and they will close against each other edge to edge.
My question is how would you stop them sliding both together once they are closed together if that makes sense? Is there a specific kit for this.
Many thanks
