Yeah, y'all are making good points. I've got one engineer who won't be available for a few weeks but who's been described as "kinda quirky" and the sort of person who might get along really well with this project. I realize that I'm not going to make a good case that everything I've got lined up is okay merely under the prescriptive building code notions without an engineer involved, but if I can just get a few hours of time I think maybe this can work.

And then it'll be a project I can crow about a bit.

Life is too short to kludge with bad tools.. unless that is the point or you are very far from civilization.

On a number of occasions, I chose quick/cheap/convenient over what I'd really like, and regretted it later. Just sayin'

After all, you are putting Festool products in this space.
