This is like trying to buy tickets to your favorite artist on Ticketmaster.com. As soon as the tickets are publicly available, they are immediately sold out.

I was waiting for the CT MIDI and saw it come through yesterday (or the day before). Clicked on the email within 9 minutes of it hitting my inbox, and they were completely sold out.

I lucked out yesterday. I had been holding off for an OF1400 and low and behold I checked my phone out yesterday leaving work and BOOM, it was there. I never received an email for it, I just have been checking from time to time when I think about it.

However, I was so excited that I hurried through and placed my order. Unfortunately, I cannot look back and see what exactly I purchased. My order says it is SKU 574342, which from researching is an older version of the router which is fine by me. What I can't seem to find out is what exactly came with it. Nor can I find anywhere when I should expect to see it. It is still in the Unfulfilled status. Do they do 3 day shipping? Snail mail?

@FestoolUSA. I'm not upset, but could you please look at listing everything that is supposed to come with the item in the confirmation email. Or at least have a link somewhere that would show the original listing to see what we purchased?

You did luck out...it's an older metric version and not an imperial version. You will probably see it within 5-7 days.

Thanks. I just about pulled the trigger on a new one at my local dealer a couple of weeks ago until my wife came back to the tool section and said "They have one of those Big Green Eggs you've been wanting for years on sale".

One of those decisions you know you can't go wrong with. Went with the Egg and then lucked out with the recon sale!

All of my Festools are metric so that works just fine for me!

@buckeyeguy If I remember correctly, the webpage said it came in a SYS 4 T-Loc with 1/4" and 5/16" collets, chip catcher, and dust extraction hood.  I remember not seeing a wrench listed, which puzzled me a bit.  But the dust extraction hood for the wrench is a nice trade-off.

The 574342 part number refers to the complete package which should include: metric router, 1/4", 8mm & 1/2"collets, a chip catcher, dust extraction hood, guide rods, U.S. guide bushing adapter, Plug-It power cord and collet wrench all in a SYS 4.

If anything is missing just contact Festool or give Tyler a PM.

Uh huh. Does it come with the standard 3 year warranty? And has it been cheaper before from the recon site?

I believe the last recon sale open to the public, think 2-3 years ago, the Kapex was offered at 40% off with no state sales tax.  [big grin]

So that discount may make a person think twice, but with the track record of the Kapex motor, the 35% discount and 1 year warranty, it wouldn't make me think of pulling the pin. And then you still have to add state sales tax which means you're only looking at a 28% discount on a saw that has a problematic track record.  [sad]

Gotcha. And yea personally they'd have to price that thing <$700 USD before Id ever consider one. Any more than that its just way more than I can justify for a sliding miter saw.

Great price, and I probably would have if there was some way of knowing that there would be an equally good deal on the clamp.

That’s another issue with this recon sale. You don’t know if the ancillary pieces will also come up for sale. The older methodology provided a list of all items available.  [mad]

I'd be in for one as well if I knew I could get a deal on the clamp.

Just so happens that is exactly what it came with.

Picked mine up today at the local UPS. Looks like it is all there. Looked new to me. Oddly enough the thing of all of it that looked the most used was the manual.  [big grin]

Just got an email for the Drywall Sander LHS-E 225 EQ USA.  Interesting that the festoolrecon page says it is “Covered by Festool exclusive 3-year Service All-Inclusive warranty”.

Have any of the other recon tools come with the 3-year warranty?  Maybe this is a typo?

I suspect that is a typo but @TylerC should be able to clear it up for you.

I couldn't even get though checkout without either one of the MFT's being sold out.  Wow.  There must only be a handful of these available.  Obviously not large quantities.  Congrats to those who got them.

Given the various states of condition people have received their recon tools...what would be an acceptable state of the top on a MFT??

I wasn't aware of those issues??  The tools are damaged, etc?  Hmm.  I've been thinking of just unsubscribing from that list anyways.

I clicked on the link in the regular MFT/3 email 6 minutes after I got it.  It was sold out already - anyone catch the price?
