Arrrr, just missed a big Domino again.

This time I got all the way to hitting the Complete button and the page came back with my credit card info removed. Filled it in again and the Sold Out page came up.

That also happened to me on the first round. While I was busy filling out the form, someone else was purchasing the DF 700.  [crying]

I then figured out if I just hit the Apple 🍎 Pay button, I could avoid the paperwork and the purchase became immediate.  [cool]  [cool]  [cool]

I need to set that up. Never thought I'd need it till your tip.

Can you pay via Apple from the computer too or only the iphone?

I've got Apple Pay setup on the phone now, thanks guys.

Works with iPhone 6 or better (or with 5 thru 5c as well via an Apple Watch).
Not sure which gen iPad is the first to support Apple Pay.

Me thinks MBPro maybe not. Mine will not acknowledge Apple 🍎 Pay which makes sense because it doesn’t have fingerprint recognition technology.

So Michael it’s iPhone or iPad.  [crying]   [crying]   [crying]

Not so fast. Mr @Cheese  you need to upgrade to the latest model with the new Touch bar at the top of the keyboard.

Wow... I’ve been duly shamed...mea culpa, mea culpa. So what you’re saying is that I need to quit squandering my hard earned cash on Festool products and start to update my computer system instead. Well it was new in 2010...........

Saw the CT36 pop open and actually bought it.  Great timing as my shop vac, enclosed for noise abatement, overheated and warped the housings.  Adding to my TS55 and “special” RO sander.

I'd still be using my 2010 MB Pro if it didn't have a motherboard problem. Random total shutdowns made working in CAD a real headache. Found out the program didn't actually save (even when I told it to) until the program was formally Quit. When the machine crashed whatever I'd done in CAD was lost. Barely squeaked through the summer of 2016 by quitting every time I wanted to save.

Does anyone know if it's possible to use the Pro 5 rebate with one of the recon tools?

@RJNeal I think you meant you “pulled the trigger” on a PDC drill set.  I’d hate to think you pulled the plug on it with the no refunds policy 😉

@ManipulatingWood. You got me.
It’s kinda hard to pull a plug on a cordless tool.

Anyone had experience between the old vs new version?  I have the older version and just curious if this good opportunity to upgrade and see a significant difference or if I should stay with what I have.

Thanks,

Have both - don't really find a huge difference.  The new one has an edge protector.  The old one is a little smaller.  I use them for different functions (my older one is now mostly a drywall sander and also sometimes gets switched to RTS form) but really I don't think there's a major difference unless things like the new hose connector are important to you.
Current systainer to productivity ratio:  very high

Thanks for your feedback- I would actually use it mostly without the edge protector (and I hate the new dust extraction connection) so I'm best just to keep what I have.  I love this sander and use it often!
