Finally got a 2nd MFT, can't believe I waited so long. Got a C15 off ebay for 225$, it's like new with batteries. Also got a new 27mm hose in the new style and new TS55 since I'm sick of having to swap out the TS75 from the CMS module.

I just received my Braided 36mm x 3.5m hose. Also picked up a c18 5.2ah on the recon sale. The drill feels like a beast after using the CXS. Looking forward to trying it out.

5m braided 36mm hose.

I took advantage of the 50% discount on the sleeved hoses that started the other week, so I couldn't justify upgrading my 27mm hose to the braided version.  But I could on the 36mm -- which I typically use only with tools that have integral plugs, like the 2200 and the HL850, so there is no concern about having to buy yet another hose sleeve to couple a plug.  Plus 5m of length vs. my current 3.5 36mm hose.

So I will be joining those people who are flooding the second hand market with the older AS hoses when I put my current one up for sale after the new one arrives.

I used my old 36mm x 3.5m hose to make a short hose for the Kapex and a short hose for my Contractor Saw Stop.

I just picked up an HL-850 for $250. It has two cutter heads. Looks to be in pretty good condition except for a small crack in the housing. I don’t think it will effect the performance.

Over the past couple of Months.... MX1200 mixer and blades, 3 new Flexible Hoses, one of which promptly took residence in my Workshop Cleaning Kit as a replacement for the old 36mm AS hose that the Kit comes with.
2 Bluetooth Batteries, one Bluetooth Remote Kit
Granat Mesh Abrasives for Drywall Sanding along with the intermediate/interface  pads for them
Used TS75 Saw... need to get a rail or two for it, but that can wait... [smile]
Had to pass on a nice used MK700 Router Kit, A/C work on my house killed the budget for that... [crying]
Oh and thanks to @sixpoint socket... ‘Oliver’... I bought that 5mm drill bit and depth set for shelf work....
Not as many Sanders as PA Floor guy.....

I just got the CMS jig saw insert for my Trion.  It's no bandsaw replacement but it really simplifies being able to cut curves without having to clamp and re-clamp constantly in order to not run into my MFT.  I'm just going to leave the Trion attached to it as I don't see needing to remove it unless for a special circumstance. It's a bit of a pain to unhook the hose and power cord every time I need to switch and install the router insert but for all of us that are space challenged, it's a pretty good solution.  I was amazed about how quickly it was sent from GB to Texas.  Only took 3 days to get here!

@HowardH

I have one of those. They are great at making templates. Buy a variety of blades and they will  really help you scroll alot easier.

Im really surprised that Festool doesnt sell that in NA

I purchased an ETS 150/5 from Woodcraft on clearance the other day. It is last year's model without the new pad. I have a DF500 and a TS55 and this may be my favorite Festool so far. And the clearance price put it at about the same cost as a Bosch 6" sander.
