Beaver is great, I never bought any Festool from them but they were my go to for Fein.  They were the only source I found for Fein dust extraction accessory for the Supercut, which should also fit the Vecturo.

When I order on line I used to go to Tom B (RIP) then Aldo (outta business) and Bob (outta business) so I thought Id give Beaver a shot based on Bobs recommendation. Bob dont give those out unless they deserve it.  So I thought what the hay. Ive been PMing Alan and hes been very responsive to my PMs. I Pm him usually after hours and I have his reply in the morning which is great considering the time difference Im PST so he's either 2 or 3 hrs ahead of me.

But so far so good.  If all goes well, they'll be getting my online business and my recommendation to some other tool buying fools like me  [big grin].

Bought a pretty full set of the Centrotec drill bits from a fellow  woodworker...hardly used. It will be nice to have them in my cabinet as I don't have more than a very few other metric bits and I'm very fond of the Centrotec system.

I bought a SYSROCK and it's playing some good music in the shop. Had a BOSE in there but wanted the radio feature.

My son just got a TS75 and an FS 2700 so I went to his shop to play with it. A lot bigger and much more power then my TS55. Nice saw.

Not sure why the depth gage on the TS 75 does not include the track depth, why would anyone use this saw without a track?

Purchased the DF 500 Knockown connectors from Woodcraft for a 10' long series of cabinets that will be placed in the knee wall of the loft. The connectors will NOT be used to hold the cabinets together but to secure the face fames to the front.





Each drawer will have LED lighting that automatically turns on and off.

My Boxes from Beaver Atools showed up. The cardboard boxes looked like they were pretty beat up. When I opened them there was a lot of bubble wrap that protected the tools and systainers. So let see Beaver is what Missouri (I think) I ordered Monday Afternoon and received them on Friday early afternoon. So thats pretty fast delivery and service. Alan also threw in a Festool Hat. though Im not a big bling guy. Ill put it with the other festool stuff I collected, A festool lorry and mini cooper , festool key chain, and festool folding rule. I got the festool bags, a beach towel , soccer balls etc. But havent hung them up for display for obvious reasons.

I bought the Centrotec Pilotless Countersink, D5-15mm & Centrotec 495128 HSS twist drill bit set D3-10 CE/10 To put in with my CXS. Trying to decide if I want to transfer the drill and accessories into a Sys drawer unit.  I have my Milwaukee 18 impact, grinder and 3/8" driver in one with an attic lid...sure wish the attic lid was available separately as I really don't need another sys II.

I believe they can still be ordered directly from Festool parts. They're expensive though $58.42. It's a better deal just to order the Systainer with an attic lid installed.

My plan was to put an attic lid on a Sys combi for all my drills and drill bits. I probably would have had some space left over.

Just picked up a second (or third?) hand WCR 1000. After using one at the Festool class last week I realized how nice they are and sure enough a member here posted one on CL the day I got back.

Yea bud I got a WC. They do come in handy. What I like about them is the ability to customize it.

I ordered dome replacement dominos for the 500, a bag of the largest ones 10x 50 and the ones for 3/4 ply 5/30.

I also ordered another vacuum clamp for the 2nd head of my vac system.

I think Sanderxpander thinks, you bought it and sold it again? I read your post that way the first time round.
When what you meant was, you bought one as they are already available in your country, where as they are not in many other countries?

It’s a Fein Supercut wearing new clothes I believe?

Centrotec systainer Festool SYS-1 CE-SORT,  # 497628

I was in Prague last week and found a local dealer who had it in stock.  Also got a few 8mm shank router bits.

I wasn't planning on buying a CMS. The price was just too much to justify for what I'd use it for in the immediate future. I jokingly texted @Bob Marino a few months back about if he had one I'd like it and he said actually. .I do, it's in my attic unused. One thing led to another, some negotiations with the wife occurred, a road trip was set:
One of the benefits of being a Festool dealer and well here we are. One brand new CMS-GE Set.



I've known for a while I needed a router table. At one point I was prepared to get a Bosch RA1181 and a 1617EVS and just deal with using it outside on nice days. Then I thought maybe the Kreg table could be good and I'd have to engineer a dust cabinet for using it in my space and somehow hook it up to my CT 26 and hope for good results. I wanted something portable though so I could stow it when not in use. And I don't own or have room for a proper dust collector at the moment. So when Bob threw me the price of his setup I couldn't resist for being able to fit well into my space and work with what I already have.

I set it up yesterday after lots of fussing with the extension table and the fence. The fence in particular was out of wack until I worked with every little screw and knob on it to get it right but it seems good to go now. I can certainly see how someone not 100% devoted to Festool and the quirks of figuring out machine setup would be turned off by this tool in comparison to other tables on the market. Had I not used it under the instruction of Gregory Paolini last month I probably wouldn't have valued it as much as I do. Micro adjust may be in its future, we'll see.

While I was in his garage I asked if he had any of the old non-cleantec hose ends and after a lot of looking none turned up. I was pretty happy to see when I got home the 2-1 CMS hose that came with the CMS set still has the old style end on it for connecting to the router's dust shroud. One happy camper here.

Besides my Vecturo OSC 18  [tongue], got my 'Cleaning set for industrial use D 50 GS-RS'.

This 50 mm. hose looks like a freaking fire hose! Maybe went a little overboard  [embarassed] here. ROFL. That diameter is massive  [eek].

Got a nice experiment hooking this baby up with the CT-VA and the MIDI, very curious if that will work[/i  [blink]].
