The last Festool I bought was an HL850, about six months ago from my local, with a nice discount. I honestly can't see when my next Festool purchase will be, with the already high prices, and no chance of getting a better than retail price.
Thing is, I'd like to keep my 1400 router in a table, and buy a 1010 for hand/guide rail use. I could have got the price down enough, that buying a Makita (for example) would cease to be an attractive option. I would pay the bit extra and not even think about it. Now, buying another brand and leaving that in the table, freeing up my 1400, seems like a much better idea.
I recently upgraded my TS55, and in the past would have checked out the 75 - but it make more sense to import a different saw direct from Germany.
Looks like the change has had an effect on me.
