I am seeing HK/HKC videos on Facebook. Festool is starting to prime the pump.

I repeat my offer to do a shed building video with Festool products if I can get the HKC early.

Of course I'm here in the U.S (NYC to be exact) & I was literally a day away from pulling the trigger on my 1st Festool, the TSC-55 but now the HKC comes along.  [eek]

It certainly seems that for the most part the HKC can do most everything the TSC does so what does an amateur brand new DIY'er like me do to figure out whether I wait for the HKC or just buy the TSC.

Decisions, decisions. I gotta say I'm leaning toward the HKC now but I was really hoping to get something soon. Ugh. 1st World problems [big grin]

If you plan on working with sheet goods the TS is a better option and cleaner cut.  If you are going to be working with solid lumber and construction tasks then the HK saw would be better suited.

Also, the dust extraction with the TS is vastly superior.

No HK or HKC in the pdf version.  I am very curious about the pricing.

Pricing hasn't been announced yet -- and last I heard still hadn't been finalized -- but we're really trying to keep it at a level that people will feel good about.

Which people are we talking about, management or customers?  [poke]

Ideally, everyone. [big grin] But I was specifically talking about customers.

Just to set expectations, pricing probably won't be announced until the second half of the summer.

I don't know about everyone else but I'd feel great with it priced at around $50  [big grin]

Seriously though I suspect this will sell well to those of us who like to frame as if we are building the proverbial piano. I had considered one from Mafell but working with one dealer over 3,000 miles away didn't thrill me at all.
