@Bob Marino first introduced Tommy to Festool years ago.  He has some great stories from those early days and demos.

 Neil,

 I'm forgetting the exact year - early 2000's and both demos were done at Tom's brother - Dickie Silva's shop. All a nice bunch of guys and very down to earth. The last picture was at Festool Connect in Indy a couple of years ago, featuring the table that Tom, Norm, Sedge, Brent and other Festool workers designed and built. The picture does no justice to it as it is extremely impressive up close.

  It's still a good show, but I too wish they would feature a more modest renovation, but I understand the need for the larger (more lucrative) projects featuring some cutting edge technology and techniques.

Bob, the top two pics look like different time. Tom’s wearing different shirts for one thing...

What is that special badge on the top Systainer right behind you in the outdoor pic?

 Hey Michael,

 The first pic was the first demo - with Tom only, that was in Spring, the second was a few months later with Dick Silva and part of the crew. In both demos, my managers were there - doing the heavy work after the intros.

 That was a sticker that was attached by Festool to the drills at that time - which happens to be the CDD.

 First pic - FAST-FIX
 I believe the second is for charging time -15 minutes - huh? Maybe charges 50% in 15 minutes?
 The bottom is showing 2ah - for the batteries.

 I'm having trouble posting the picture here from my CDD drill - which I still can't get myself to get rid of.

  Here's that picture of the drill's badge included at that time.

Thanks Bob, but it’s the square badge to the right that I was wondering about. Between your right jeans pocket and the green latch.

I'm not Bob, but that looks like a plain old 1+2 year warranty sticker. (1 year standard + 2 years extra if you register the tool)
