Plasticam...Mine is on it's way from amazon.fr..not sure what you are converting, but I am also ordering a replacement plug in for an of1400 from festool....I think they are about 10 bucks...looking at my sander, it appears the opening where the cord comes out is about the same size as the tool end plug it socket on my other tools....I was told that the of1400 router has long leads so hopefully it works for my rs2 sander....I've seen other folks do this mod, may require some jb weld to hold it in, or to make a form depending on the size of the strain relief setup on whatever tool you want to convert. Just a thought, and lots cheaper!

 Hey Greg thanks for the reply,  I actually ordered the plug from Amazon France 🇫🇷 Yesterday,  my French wife helped me out a bit  [big grin]
     I’m  converting a Mafell mt55  and I’m really  tired of the cord management between these tools,  even though I have multiple CT 36s

Hi. Your very welcome, and glad your wife could help you thru it...took me a while to figure out that if I right clicked on the side of the screens google translated for me...otherwise I couldn't remember enough of my 8th grade french to get by..mind you that was 45 years ago now...lol Hope it works out for you, and remember you can also order the repair part for much less from Festool but that means potentially a bit more fiddling about depending on the strain relief/setup of what you are converting.

If you use Google Chrome is has a feature that allows you to translate the page.  I use it all the time and save the page as a pdf for woodworking articles in other languages.

For Firefox (and offsprings) there is the "Google™ Translator" addon, works nicely.

Sometimes there are listings on Amazon.  I found one listed and ordered it.  It shipped from somewhere in Europe and took about a month to get here.
