I just ordered the HSM-Sys and some bags for the CT-Sys and abrasives for the RO-90.

Does not seem much in comparison, but I am just about to pull the trigger on a CTM-26 E AC.
What is holding me back is, I have not been able to decide which sander to buy with it. [emoji41]
It is down to either ETS EC 150 or Rotex 150.
Man do I have problems. [emoji23]

after much um and aah, I received my Centrotec set 497628 today. Wasn't sure I'd use everything included, but the storage convenience swung it in the end.

I'm just a casual beginner who's decided to slowly upgrade my cheap 20 year old tools with some decent stuff; the RO90 with CTL SYS dust extraction was a revelation compared to my previous £25 Black & Decker sander, as are the drills.

the bug has bitten badly.

The impending slight price increase tomorrow forced my hand (saved $49). Today I ordered:
TS55 track saw
OF1400 router
LR32 hole drilling kit
LR32 rail 1400 mm
vac hose 5m
extra blade for TS55
parallel guides with extensions
a few other small items.

Did not have the budget to buy dust extraction, MFT or Domino. Maybe some other time.

I have a lot of large built-ins to tackle over the next year and did not want to wrestle full sheet goods over the top of the contractor table saw. Looking forward to the Festool system.

Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

That is quite a start!

When you get into the sander line that  will be a good time to get a Festool vac.

Great choices. I too pulled the trigger on an OF 1400 Router with the LR32 kit, 20mm bit for making my own MFT permanent bench and bit the bullet on the FS 2424 96" rail so I have one in the shop. Was saving up for a Laser Cutter but found one local to use and perfect timing to buy the tools I want before the price increase. My UPS Brown Santa is going to be busy for a couple weeks.

Added two (5 piece) sets of SYS-AZ drawers too so one of my first projects is to build some shelves to organize my new tools.

I needed a couple of spare bags for the CTL-Sys and stumbled upon a good offer for the HSM-SYS while I was searching.
Also found cheap v93 paper for the RO90 in the same shop.

I am very interested how the stuff out of the HSM will perform. Got a couple of the sponges and really like them thus far...

I'm weak! [emoji51][emoji41]
I just wanted to collect the missing spare parts for my MFS400 I picked up some weeks ago.
...and before I knew it I was leaving with a CTM26EAC and an ETS EC 150/5 EBQ-plus GQ and some sandpaper..

Girlfriend looked kind of surprised, when I came back with my "spare parts"... ;)

Today? I bought a 108" rail, the 28t blade for the ts55, and some clamps.
Two days ago, I bought a TS55, with the rail on back order.
Five days ago, I bought a OF1400 and a CT36
A week ago, I bought a the smaller domino.

Tonight I went on Amazon, and ordered some more clamps for the rails, (the quick clamp and the rapid clamp), and the guide stop for the OF1400, (The guy at woodcraft had the thing in his hand and said, no thats not what you need to put the router on the rails, but but, festools video shows that part!!!), oh and some rockler glue brushes. (cause I drive past rockler every day and keep forgetting to stop in to buy that)

Also picked up a Rikon band saw, and a laguna dust collector last week (of course, I need an electrician to look at my garage cause the wiring sucks and I can't hook up the DC.)

Its like christmas in April.

Also awesome forums!

(next stop is a sander, I do like my ridgid ROS, but I have been really digging the dust collection on the FT stuff.)

Old style 27mm hose reducer/connector.   Going...going...gone...487071



On Tuesday I tried to purchase 4 of these that were advertised on the internet, however, they're backordered.

So on Wednesday, I traveled to Woodcraft and tried to purchase 2 of these, however they're also backordered.

Today, I just may meander over to another local dealer and purchase 2 more if they have any in stock.

hi all first time here (other than browsing), just purchased my first festool the ts55 with 2 1400 rails and clamps , wasnt intentionally looking for a saw as i have a  MAKITA 5017RKB with the dust box which works great and does collect most of the muck , but after watching tims (benchworks) video and post on the mobile mftc (plans now ordered and received ) the ts55 started to haunt me . then after passing someone setting up his tressles on the street i live on i spotted the ts55 with a glow around it  , had to stop and quiz him about it. had a feel and a grope , he couldnt praise it enough , 10 mins later saw ordered , after a day using as a kitchen fitter im more than impressed, not sure where to go next, new router may be next on the cards , but does the extra money justify for a festool over any other an then does it need the new jig lol

Pulled the trigger on a Rotex Yesterday and it arrived today. Brilliant price and service from powertool-supplies.co.uk I've bought 4 other festool products from them recently with similar great service. I was in the market for a RO90 (still am really) but another larger project came up giving me the excuse to buy the 150  [smile]

Looking forward to using it, I have 5 massive wooden cable drums to convert into tables for an outdoor learning area.

Hi

You can get the basic set in the UK and this one which was only £10 more. The draw has a selection of granat (about 30 sheets by the look of it) the hand sander and the blue hard pad. Given the pad is about £35 alone it was a no brainer  :)
