    Thanks, my friend.

    Festool also has the cord manager and recently updated it.

    If I'm not mistaken, one differentiator with the Kreg is that it's a left-blade saw, the opposite of the others. Some folks prefer that.

    Another reason I suggested the 2019-2020. I believe the keyboard was updated. I have a 2019, although I rarely use the on-board keyboard. It's not been a problem when I have used it, however.

    I'd likely pull the trim and put in additional shims/blocking to stabilize the structure. That and insure that the proper type and length of screws are used as was mentioned in other commentary.

    Go newer if you can...2019-2020 Intel based. Better performance and longer "OS life" left. Check Apple.com for refurbs. OWC also sells reconditioned Macs.

    Keep in mind that some formats of clamps designed to be used with MFT-type surfaces are not friendly to the thicker tops. You might consider putting in some clamping slots, too, for more flexibility.
