So i finally broke down and joined the systainer crowd.   I already had a taste of the systainers when i bought my Domino 500 and the box of dominos.   Thankfully the dominos did not come with dots.  Since i liked the design, and I had a number of tools that needed a better home than a shelf I ordered a Sys 1, Sys 2 and Sys 3 with foam insets.

I plan to create a rolling cart to house this in, along with a few more, once i can get approval from the boss  [smile]

I've been looking for a second sander that's a bit easier to handle for long periods of time than my RO150... I've been debating between the various new ETS EC models.  I definitely wanted one of the /3 models, but was debating between the 125 and 150.  Then when I realized I could use the same sandpaper on the ETS 150 and RO150, it was a no brainer.

I found a shop online who claimed to have 8 in stock, so I should have mine in hand on Monday.  Apparently they weren't told of the October 1 release date  8)

Used but not abused - a Sym 70 surfaced at a great price. It took about a minute to Plug It:



Cuts nicely, weighs next to nothing and within its limitations a great little saw. :)
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.

One of the considerations when buying the MFT/3 online is the possibility of shipping damage.  Perhaps other dealers will chime in, but I personally bought mine from Bob Marino and it was double boxed to protect it.  I shouldn't recommend one dealer over another, so if other dealers make similar shipping and boxing enhancements perhaps they will post here.

Peter,thanks!

Thats exactly what I'm worrying about - shipping damage!

I just bought PDC 18/4 drill from Bob Marino and it packaged very well,systainer packaged absolutely great,BUT some accessories inside systainer was not securely fit,making some scratches and etc.,Festool fault for sure.

Hi Folks, new to the forum.
I finally took the plunge and purchased a TS55 and various guide rails yesterday.
I'll be looking at getting either a CT26 or Midi in the next few weeks.

I anticipate the main use to be cutting the borders on parquet floors but who knows I might start making all sort of things once I get used to its capabilities.

This is a fantastic forum, with lots of experieced members (at least thats my opinion).

Nice to meet you all.

The bullet was bit. Finally fully entered myself into (after several weeks of waiting) the green kool-aid. Picked up a CT26, RO90 and got my ETS EC 150/3 all good to go, with hard pads for the 90 and 150, and 6 boxes of sandpaper (80, 150 and 220 for each size for now). Discover was more than happy to ding my phone about "purchase over specified amount" enough times as a result, hehe.

I'll be honest though... I couldn't handle reading through 10 pages to post my excitement :D hahaha. I'll be having a very fun day sanding tomorrow.

I picked up an angle unit today.  It was backordered and came in this week.  I have seen mixed reviews on this, mostly that it does not stay tight.  I played with it just a little and it seems to stay tightened when I set it on an angle.  I want to get an MFT table eventually which has a better angle unit, but need to save up money for that, so hopefully this will work fine until then.

Had ordered a of1010 a couple of weeks ago went to pick it up today but the order had been mislaid and another would have had to gone in which was going to take a couple of weeks! So decided to take the of1400 they had in stock instead (not that it was a hardship  [wink]) and they kindly knocked £20 off the bill for the mix up  [big grin] so happy days

So my wife wants me to build a new garden bench which is going to require a lot of 1x4 slats getting joined together.  I have a DowelMax but was thinking a Domino would be a lot quicker and less stress.   ;D  We don't have the design finalized yet but I'm not sure how often I'm going to need it going forward.  Should I pull the trigger?
