How can you tell if it’s metric or imperial? I didn’t see it in the emails or the website to purchase the recon.

Look at the part numbers, they're usually listed.

Thanks

Okay Festool you are getting a little spammy with the recon sale emails.

How many different models of circular saw did/do they make??

I think yesterday I received 4 emailsfor different models the same  cordless saw

They have TS55, TS75, HK55, TSC55, and HKC55, then they have set and basic versions.

I'm up to 20 emails in total in the last three days.  I remember Tyler saying the emails would be very low volume.

Yes, that was the initial jist of the recon announcement.

But , I think Tyler also made another announcement that they would be trying a different approach for the holiday.  I took that to mean more stuff was coming quicker, though that was neither articulated or even hinted at.

In addition to what Seth said, haven't we read about too few and infrequent enough?  So now the gates have opened.

Who knows, maybe on Cyber Monday there will be something different?  Or nothing at all?

I certainly can't find any reason to complain about too MANY notifications, considering the troubles at roll-out. Those problems also seem to have been solved successfully.

The way it's working now is far better than past years, and is making the discounted tools more widely available.

Sheri said,

"I honestly don’t know whether their new recon website will turn out to be a good or bad idea, but I, personally, think the idea is brilliant! I don’t even use their tools, but I’ve spent the past week completely obsessed with checking my emails to see what tool will go on sale next. LOL! It’s been a ton of fun!"

That is what Festool was hoping for. At least it worked out for some people.

So true! Thanks, Cheese!

I jumped on the first one that came up! Luckily, it was the perfect set or I would've kicked myself after seeing all the other variations. I already have the TSC kit w/55" track (and a 32"), but wanted to get a corded version since I almost always use it with a  CT SYS and don't take advantage of the auto-on feature. The new 55" track I'll keep pristine for fine cuts or joining with the others.

Aside from the fact that these refurbished tools used to be listed at 25-40% off, I'll take a cold 25% for the few additional back-up tools I want.

Plus the metric & imperial versions. I think I saw some of the original metric versions yesterday.

It's pretty funny though, I receive the emails after they've already been sold.  [tongue]

I haven’t seen anything else either. I would imagine it’s over for a while.  I missed the CT 36 E. They must have only had a couple. It didn’t last long.  Does anybody know how they calculate the tax?  It definitely isn’t my state tax rate. Haha

I believe they use Indiana as the sales state for calculating taxes (7%).

There is a Kapex for sale.

Found it by going directly to the Festool Recon Page.

I'm not receiving email notifications anymore.  [mad]

I received the email at 9:09 CST well after your post. Their emails are not in sync with the recon site postings.

During their blitz last weekend, I only received emails for part of the items. But get all the other regular ones. Strange system by far. I almost wonder if a lot of it is actually not automated to explain all the inconsistencies. Programming is consistent, humans are not.

My notification came in at 9:12, almost 20 minutes after the recon started up again.

Last week on the popular items (eliminate Kapex, Planex, Conturo, Carvex), I'd receive the notices AFTER the item was already sold. That's the reason I started using the "refresh the festoolrecon.com" method.

With a Kapex, it doesn't matter when you receive the notice, there'll always be an extra one available...not so much with the DF 500/700.

This along with the number of times the saw has come up for sale leads me to believe that FT is less than candid about the number of saws that get sent back to them and or its general popularity.  If they aren't breaking they arent getting sent in. If they are the bees knees they aren't getting 30 day returned.  Meaning there wouldn't be many units for sale and they'd go licking split like the Dominos.

One can pretty much tell from this sale what jewels in the lineup are. 

And the dogs too.

If Festool wants to move those Kapex saws and other "dogs" they might consider allowing the $50 voucher to be used....

Unfortunately no...they’ve already reduced the price of the Kapex by $500-$600 and have few takers.

I believe they use Indiana as the sales state for calculating taxes (7%).

It should list it when you check out. 

I bought 3 items over the past month (sander and two saws) and they charged my local state sales tax (Virginia) correctly BUT I noticed on the third purchase, they tacked on a local county tax for a county that I don't live in.  My local county does not have an additional tax.  I went back to look and the same tax was on the prior two purchases.

I sent them an email over the weekend and they replied on Monday, forwarding it to their tax manager who admitted that it wasn't right and they were going to have customer service work with me to refund over $20 in county taxes.  I haven't heard anything from them since but figured everyone deserves a few days to work things out before I bug them.  I'll reach out to them next week again if I don't hear back, but I am confident I should get a refund.

Thanks for pointing this out.  I was also charged an extra tax for a county that I don't live in.  I had assumed I was being charged because they might have a store in this county or that's where they're shipping from, but now I know that's not the case.  I'm going to email them to request a refund.

I had to follow up with them today.  Tax manager was out of the country last week.  He is very responsive when you get a hold of him.  He told me they'd have to mail me a check vs. doing a refund to my cc.  Fine by me as long as it gets worked out.
