    Question:

    2) What are the mobility kit wheel diameter size? My garage has a wide groove aka expansion joint in the concrete flooring. Will the mobility wheels easily roll over this groove without hassel.

    2) Extension tables ... As a hobbyist, what size and where should I add the extension table (infeed / out feed). Not sure what size to purchase.
    Hi, I'm not from Felder USA, I'm from Felder Canada.

    As I indicated in your other thread, go metric.

    As for table extensions on the A3, I use the part number 500-101 for planer out feed simply to keep short pieces from falling on the floor. This is the 150mm wide X 400mm long extension. You cannot mount a planer in feed extension.

    I also have another 500-101 so I can add to the jointer in feed and out feed, and I have a 500-129 which is 800mm long, I mostly use that on the shaper, especially when doing insertion moulding.

    Regards, Rod.

    Good Morning Girard,

    When it comes to the imperial vs metric I tell all my clients that it is really what they are more comfortable with. If you're comfortable with metric, I would recommend going with metric.
    As for the mobility kit and the wheels, depending on how big that gap is the wheels could fall down into the gap. If you do not want to go with our mobility kit, I would recommend the portamate3500. The wheels are 80mm in diameter so you're at 3.14 inches.
    When it comes to the extension tables, it depends on what size wood you're working with.
    You will need 2 500-102 mounting brackets and then you can go with 500-101 which is your 16" extension table or the 32" extension table with leg support. There is an infeed table that you can use and that item is 503-156. This is the round bar extension table that works with the steel bar. It is also 32" with leg support.

    All the best

    Hey Girard,

    Ignore the part of my last message where I said that you can use 503-156. I've been working with the bigger Jointer/planers a lot lately and had the infeed side confused.

    All the best
    Feel free to give us a call if you have more questions.

    No problem Tim, I was confused myself after seeing the part. I was able to clarify via phone call.

    Thanks again.
