In the past new products were announced end of January/beginning of Feb.
Or June or in autumn.

I hope they also pull the cordless grinder out of their hats.
Maybe with the new BOSCH „starlock“ for grinders, as someone showed pictures... [emoji1307]

Looks like pages for the old corded Vecturo have been pulled from festool.de (and my local .dk) - there are still Vecturo plus and set search suggestions but they result in page errors. Corded Vecturo is still up on festool.com, though.

The old corded Vecturo is no longer produced. Only stock of sellers is sold.  ;)

Perhaps wanting to support an ethically-produced tool (over the sweatshop-produced equivalent) means more to more people than I thought. If so, that is a pleasant surprise.

Yes this is specifically why I’m waiting on a Festool Impact driver. Also why I buy Festool whenever I need a new tool. Not to mention having a single battery platform is akin to sticking to a prescribed diet: Can be painful at times but ultimately worth the cost.

I'm curious to see the angle grinder. I wonder weather there will be anything unusual about it given Festool's rhetoric about not producing tools unless they bring something new to the game. . .
there's nothing like the right tool for the job

Put dust collection on a sawzall. That would be new to the game!

Is there any way of knowing when these items are scheduled for release in the US?  I’ve emailed/called a few retail outlets about the Midi, but they either don’t know or they have no idea what I’m talking about.  [smile]

@Dave_B, I know what you're talking about. You're just calling the wrong dealers, ha.  [tongue]

Give us a buzz at Tool Nut if you ever have questions. We keep up-to-date on all of the latest news about Festool.

No official word from Festool USA on when or if we will see the updated versions of the MINI / MIDI. If I had to take a guess, I would say we might see them closer to mid-year.

Oof.  Thanks Shane.  I'm a master at procrastination, but I may have to pull the trigger if it takes that long.  Thanks for the heads up!

Oh that CS looks nice. Hopefully the fence is good as that was the crappy part of the CMC table set up and the reason I sold it...

Same, but willing to hold off if another one isn’t far away, it’s quite a lot of money so I’d want it too last a far while. Waiting for reviews on the new model  :)

It's an intake air filter. Has come standard on the CS 70 for as long as I've been aware of them (and likely much longer).

Intuitively it makes sense, although wondering why no other power tool has an intake filter.

I'm new to Festool and this forum and plan to buy a Kapex (USA model). Given the motor failure reports, I thought it prudent to wait for a redesign since I'm in no rush. Comparing Kapex KS 120 EB and new KS 120 REB for changes to the motor, it looks to me like the REB version motor housing part number is different. The field assembly is the same on both models but the "end shield" assembly is different. Am I missing something, or misinterpreting EKAT?

Anymore word of the updated TS55 and TSC55 or the cordless Kapex?

Offline demographic

Screen, Touch screens, etc don't belong on tools, cars etc.  Just make things more of a disposable item and harder to repair.  Maybe in a few years they will have a "higher end" (costlier) model where you pay more for the privilege to not have a screen.   My guess is they are going down the same route as car makers and others where the reality is doing things with a screen and some ICs out back is cheaper than physical knobs/encoder/wiring/etc,  so it's a cost savings but pitched as luxury, only after knobs and such are gone do people realize what they lost, want them back and now you have to pay more and getting the mechanical controls back is the luxury option.

That's pretty much my take on it.
Some cars are coming out where theres a lot of essential day to day workings routed through those touchscreens and I dont want them at all.
It's just been done to reduce cost and sold as a luxury. Fail.
It also means the owner has less chance of repairing them without taking the car to a garage.
I don't mind it on aftermarket sterios, cos at the end of the day I can take it to Halfords and get another one bought and fitted for a hundred and thirty quid, or just live without a stereo for a while, it won't kill me.

On powertools? Think I just prefer a knob to turn.

Still, at least Festool listened about the impact screwdriver and as long as its not got that stupid flappy belt hook contraption I've seen on some of their drills I might even buy one.

Slightly different use case, don't you think?

Needing that kind of configuration options on a dust collector would indicate a design failure.

Not the same thing at all.  My computer wouldn't be very useful without a screen, it works better with a screen than a series of blinking lights I have to decode.
