How about a T-shirt?
« on: June 07, 2018, 10:56 PM »
Hey Festool,

In the past 12 or so  months I've bought:

MFT/3
CT26
TS55
DF500 with Tenon Assortment
RO90
LR32 with holey rail
OF1400, with edge guide, guide rail guide things
CMS-VL
quick clamps, 1 sortainer, 3 empty sys3s, parallel guides and other various green stuff

How 'bout a T-Shirt? Hat? Coffe cup? Koozie?

just saying

Hey mwbrewter:
You think you’ve “invested” in Festool?
Check out my “signature block”.
Take a look at Festool products I’ve bought the last loyal 15 years.
And there’s a multitude of FOGers that make me look like a “small change” spender.
Comparatively, you just “got in the game”.

And... Puleez... Don’t ever be asking for a shirt, a hat, or any other spiffs.
You’ll just be driving up the price of an MFT another $25-$50 to pay for ‘em.
Same MFT - No improvements, of course. (Note tongue in cheek.) [wink]
Just sayin’.

Depending on the advertising contract for wearing merchandise closing... I suspect I could be bribed, given high enough numbers. Wouldn't buy one to wear it though - and don't want to pay for 'free' ones indirectly through inflated product prices.

We're working on a way for people in the US and CA to get more access to more swag -- t-shirts, hats, stickers, etc. Hang tight.

I'm often asked about my Festool hat and how to get one.

I jokingly say that after you've invested your first $10,000 in Festool, they will SELL you a hat for $25.

Interesting.  I have two Festool t-shirts that were gifts with purchases at Hartville Hardware during their semi-annual tool sale.  Would really like to see a 20oz or 24oz coffee tumbler (travel mug).

I received a free Festool tshirt with my first Festool purchase, still have it nearly 10 years later but it's time to put that one in the trash. Received another 2 years ago at the roadshow, so Festool does give out free swag, you just have to be at the right place and time. It doesn't seem to matter how much you spend, as I've made a significant investment in their system and the free shirt to dollars spent ratio is low.

If Festool wants to give out shirts(xl please), I'm willing to advertise the brand.

How about a FOG shirt??

I definitely see guys look straight at my cap when I'm out and about with the Festool cap on (e.g. at the big box store or lumberyard).  It's usually a sneer or a smirk.  Never had anyone say anything positive or strike up a Festool conversation.   [scratch chin]

Yes, a FOG shirt please. Even if people in any box, store or otherwise don’t get it, I feel like it’s a great description of where I often find myself (literally and figuratively).

I truly lucked out, I got a Hat, cup, shirt and a reusable bag(wife uses it for a shopping bag)

Only people who have ever said anything about the shirt are woodcraft employees.

I got a a bag and cup from this year's Roadshow.  I got a t-shirt and hat when I ordered my TS55 and CT26 from Beaver Industrial Supply.  I got a bag, t-shirt, and a koozie from the Roadshow in 2016.

I know it sounds bad, but I mainly went to this year's Roadshow just for the Festool swag.  I wasn't really interested in seeing the new products.
