Festool Plug Ends
« on: July 30, 2018, 06:36 PM »
Hello All
I have a question about the Festool Plug Ends.  I would like to convert my Fein Multitool to a Festool plug type cord.  I dropped a board on the cord the other day and when repairing the cord I thought of converting the tool to use a Festool plug end.  I know this has been discussed before but I’m not aware of how to locate the parts needed.  Also I would like to use the 14 gauge cord if possible. 

I’m thinking a short pig tail with a Festool female plug in on the tool, that is possible correct?  And then just use a Festool cord, correct?

Thank you for any information you can give me.

Festool offers the Plug-it pigtails in other parts of the world.  Here they don't.  You will have to go grey market and try to buy outside the USA. 

Please note that I am not encouraging you to do so but rather telling you the realities.

I called the Festool Service Department a few days ago asking about these.  They sell replacement "sockets" for tools with existing Plug Its, but as Peter said, they no longer sell covered pigtails or adapters here in the USA.

That’s a nice tidy conversion on the Dewalt.  [big grin]  It looks factory.

someone needs to come up with a 90 deg swivel plug it adaptor for the vecturo among other tools. That would be awesome. Cause sometimes you need to get into a tight space.....
