I bought a Vac Sys at about 50% off.
I'll be more accepting of visible signs of use than I would if the tool was only 25% off.
(Although at that discount, reduced warranty, and the sales tax added on I probably wouldn't buy...)

Took delivery today and was very pleased (and surprised) to find no sign of prior use. Looks new to me...

Same for me Michael.  Manufacturing Date is 01-2016 but there not a scuff on it 😀!  It looks like we lucked out.

At this point I wonder if they are just putting up tools as they come in and are reconditioned, almost selling one or maybe two at a time?

Or are they just breaking up the inventory for a particular model (D500 comes to mind) in order to give interested people more chances?

I need to go wonder about more important things...

Funny... [not worthy]

I've pretty much done just that, haven't refreshed the recon website in 3 days.

I get the emails, but when I do the math, after Tennessee sales tax (just shy of 10%), I would rather just pay full price for the full 3 year warranty, and the right to return the product for 30 days.

Well the one I've really been waiting for was up for sale again this morning.

The Domino XL for less than $1100.

I was lucky enough to see the email within 3 minutes of it arriving but alas the tool was already sold out.

Less than 3 minutes...

You're right, it is the pump only, something I'm not familiar with and bought on impulse.

I too was looking for the Domino XL and was my reading email when the message arrived so I clicked it IMMEDIATELY and it was gone!  I suppose it's all down to the speed of your ISP and all the mail routing between Festool and your mail reader when they only have 1 of a given item.

So I got my RO 125 in and after some fighting with it I've got it figured out. The label on it has me confused. Instead of T Nr and S Nr it has "B Nr" and "M Nr" The M.Nr. is 6 digits followed by /04/05. Did they really sell me a tool from 2005? It's not beat up, shows signs of use, and functions I think properly. The toggle switch for RO/Rotex is stiff going back to RO from Rotex but other than that everything seems to work. I'm not complaining so much as I'm a little shocked.

When was the rotex 125 even introduced? After 2005 I thought. The B.Nr 491 917 doesn't come up in Google

I got the Vac pump too. Looks new and no signs of use. The unit manufactured in 01-2016. This was an excellent buy at 50% discount.

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.

I FINALLY snagged one! Been refreshing all day since I got up. So I got the OF1400, Rotex 125, OF2200 and the DF700, all recon. I think I'm done now. I've only received the OF1400 so far so we shall see on condition of the others.

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.

MB Pro late 2016 and later do have fingerprint reader in the power button, upper right on the touch bar.
