If Festool phases out the TI15 on December 1, will they continue to sell the impact bits after that date?

Being an optimist, I 'd wager if they can sell the bits they will continue to offer them. It's not like they take up that much space. Other wise impact bits don't need to be Festool to be used with the T-EYE impact

The impact bits looks very very much like the wera impact bits i use. So i guess they might just be rebranded wera bits.  [wink]

Festool does a lot of business with Wiha, so I think they might be Wiha.

Thanks Shane!

Thanks for the other replys  What I like about the Festool bits is that they are easy to distinguish from regular bits and the fact that they are delivered in a twin box bit holder.

No explanation, that I can see... They are perhaps to expensive too produce if they don't sell enough volume?
