1400 years?!  I didn't think Festool had been around quite that long.

Haha, nice spot. You should read it as;

I got the {holey 1400 [rail]} years before I got the LR32 sys  [laughing]

At last i pulled the trigger!

Domino 500-set
Domino Sys
Lr32 Sys
1400mm LR-32 track

A cabinet maker kit!  [big grin]

Nice! I spread that out over a few years, but the plan was always there. I got the holey 1400 years before I got the LR32 sys  [laughing]

Is the springloaded pin in your LR32 also a bit too long?

Cant really say anything about the tools, they havent arrived yet.
Got a good deal on everything now, i think we are going to see some higher prices next year?

Higher prices next year is always a safe bet, lol. My salary will get higher too, but the real question (not really); will the prices increase more than my salary? And so far I have the feeling it's "Yes" with a lot of stuff that I'm interested in.

Somewhat don't get these price discussions... I live in country where average salary is about 800 (before taxes) eur, but living costs are same like in a Germany, almost all goods (including Festool) costs much more than in a Germany, more than half people earn about 280 (after taxes)eur a month... But I just save money, buy best tools I need and just work. I'm working with tools, not with the price. I'm buying a tool, not "price" for which I can sell that tool some day later... I just don't care and have fun from nice tools my hands enjoy! :)

Regards the topic... I would buy today TS75. :)

Re: What Festool Did You buy Today? 150/3 vs 150/5

Ok so I have the ETS EC150/5 EQ and just purchase the Rotex 150 last week ;) So my question that others have discussed, these both have a 5mm stroke, so aside from the Rotex mode are they a little redundant, as I just purchased an ETS EQ 150/3 as I want a finer finish.  I just refinished an oak dinning room table with the Rotex, 150/3 and surfix kit.  I got some got small scratches one today second coat of oil today with the 150/5 and 320 Granat. My guess was it’s the sander stroke.  Your feedback is welcome.

Several years ago I dropped my ATF55 and cracked the housing where the dust collection hose attaches.  It held on for quite a while before finally breaking off and I continued to use the saw with the dust hose taped on.  I finally bought a new housing from Festool and fixed the saw.  There was a pretty good amount of disassembly involved to get there and I haven't gotten the saw adjusted right.  I finally got tired of waiting for myself to adjust the saw and picked up a recon TS55 REQ.  I've sort of been just wanting one for years now so...



Based on the condition of the blade in the new saw I'd say someone gave it a good long tryout before returning it.  Hopefully it just needs a good cleaning.  I was counting the "new blade" cost in my financial justification since my current blade could use replacement.

I highly doubt cost of living is the same (can't check since I don't know your country), but with 800 here... well. Rent, mandatory health care, food, clothes, utilities; that's about 800 gone per month.

But seen in that perspective we have nothing to complain in that area yeah.
