Got me this.

@Cheese, that's quite an expensive piece of metal you've got there, what do you use it for exactly?

@Alex
I'm using it to just break the edge on maple and oak boards before I sand them. Kind of like deburring metal, just a different twist. It works better on maple than oak because of the grain. Will try it on some Brazilian cherry next.

And what is that gem in the picture?

@Cheese Pad break for the RO150.

Old one was worn down, the sander would spin up uncontrollably once off the material. Fixed it now.

Interesting, don't own a RO 150... just a RO 125 so the part you showed was indistinguishable from my perspective. Interesting though, from what I've been reading here, the 150 series is supposed to be much smoother than the 125 series. Just what I need...another fricken sander.

I picked up the 1400 LR32 rail this morning.  Now tonight I will make some rail connectors (found a post on here) so I can connect it to my 75" rail.

Nothing today but 2 weekends ago I picked up my 1st Festools. A TS 75 and a MF T/3. Then last weekend I picked up the OF 1400 and the CT 36. I'm very excited and wondering why I waited so long. Luckily I have been able to unload some old tools on Craigslist to help pay for my new favorites.  James

Oh, where to start!  [big grin]

I recently started renovating my house. Here in Switzerland, it's so horrendously expensive to hire craftsmen (you might face USD 100 or more an hour even for very simple work - I was quoted USD 5000 to get two flights of stairs sanded...), so I decided to just bite the bullet and learn to do stuff myself.

I initially got a Trion and RTS 300 super cheap (75% off at my local store, must have been some deadstock as they usually don't carry Festool) and realized how good these tools were in comparison to my old Einhell and Bosch stuff I had since before for fixing minor things around the house. So now I'm redoing the kitchen and got the T 18+3, OF 1010 and am currently waiting for a Rotex 150 for some stairs and very minor concrete touch-up.

Given all the tools I have now, I decided I might as well take up woodworking as a hobby; I grew tired of computer games a few years ago and need to fill those precious few hours of free time with something rewarding.

Finally got myself a proper vac, a CT 26 and a box of dust bags for it. Took a month and a half to get to my shore but hey it was worth the wait, no more leaning down turning a vac on and off again.

The CTL Midi Vac, because i recently bought a DF500 and a OF1010, and they are producing a lot of dust. I still think, maybe the CTL Sys would have been better, because of its size and flexibility, but then i think also, this (ctl midi)is the best solution because of the capacity.

My husband is very happy with all the research I've done and the new toys, I mean tools, that I procured for him. Bits and pieces have been coming in because I got the Planex with an extra extention used yesterday and the Ultimate Dust Deputy came a few days ago. The motherload come today:
Midi Dust Extractor
Planex hose and harness
Pad sets
DTS 400
Plenty of sanding grit to keep us going for a while. Thanks to Tom for the assortment package  [big grin]

I know there's a 15 year old boy in the house that can't wait for us to put it to good use and finish up his room reno.

Thank you all for being so helpful to me!

No more rail joining!  Bought the 118" rail.  I cut way too many full sheets...96" and 120".  Also bit the bullet on  the 2200 as I was able to buy the metric accessory kit, new in old style systainer, for $190.00.  Anybody want to buy a PC 7518?  I am keeping the one in my Benchdog table raiser.

Nice...

But I'm curious, it looks like you went with a full length NA style fence. I thought Europeans prefer a half fence that is adjusted to just clear the rear of the blade.
I'm curious why you chose a full length fence?
The reason I'm asking is because I have both extrusions. I used to use the full length and changed to the half fence.
