I have to agree with the comments above. If TTTS price themselves too high their dealer base will walk away, which I am surprised is not happening already since they compete with their own dealers online anyway. I must admit my local Festool dealer seem to be a bit light on for tools on the shelf, even though they are a premium dealer, and are supposed to be stocking everything.

Hope you all are having a great Australia Day.

AUSTRALIA DAY

Hope the Aussie Foggers had an enjoyable day.
Ms Untidy and I travelled to the 'big smoke' for to see an exhibition by a living iconic Australian Artist.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

@Trosey
Nice try.

However much of Olson's work in the latter part of last century was based on his air surveys of central Australia.

This image is unrelated to this painting  but may give you some feeling for his inspiration.

The Boss has me scheduled to do the bath cabinet and countertop...

Any noteworthy plumbing fixture supply places in the big smoke(s)?
(We are looking for some copper fixtures, and want to find some larger or more upscale shops.)

@Kev that is a bit garish, but the right idea.

I thought DHnet was similar to Alibaba, so basically all of Asia, and I have looked on the web for a few hour already, so I was hoping for an upscale/large shop.

Hey there,

Whatever you do go with the 5 star stuff. We have a 6 star kitchen tap....looking forward to seeing the back of that thing. Bad mistake on my part.

I am not sure what the stars mean? One can never go bad with the hansgrohe stuff and that ilk. The installation can also cost a bit, and warrenty requires a proper plumber installing it.

@Holmz

5 star is 6 litres/min
6 star is 3.5 litres/min.

Hansgrohe is a good brand. You can see why I hate my 6 star tap. Takes forever to fill the sink.

Hi Everyone

An Australian gentleman has raised the issue of the cost of shipping the Parf Guide System (PGS), made by Axminster under their UJK label, to Australia.

At the moment all of the PGS have been sold to individual clients but it would make sense to have an Australian dealer. That same dealer could also take on the Veritas Parf Dogs as well.

This is not something that I should get involved with and so any potential dealers need to talk to Axminster direct.

The discussion can be found in this FOG thread:

The issue with that is there are already 2 distributors for veritas in Oz, carbatec and the wood works. My main job is sales, I can guarantee veritas won't be shipping dogs only to another party down here.

Sounds to me that one or both of those should consider stocking the PGS.

I will let Axminster do all of this.

Looks like the apple harvest has been good this year !

Cheers.
