The ONLY actual Festool item I got during the sale period was a Systainer 2 for the routing insert I now have.
Other purchases during the sale period (some on special, others not):
Parf Dogs and the small dogs (Lee Valley)
DomiPlates for my XL (Seneca on sale)
Veritas Flush cutting saw (Lee Valley on sale)
Two Super fridge magnets (Lee Valley on sale)
MFT-SP clamps from an angel on FOG (great price for new ones!)
Festool Apron in a mini-sys (ToolNut)
Monday I went to a retiring woodworker's house for a silent auction. He moved to a care facility, so was selling everything.
Scored the following:
*Six-piece set of 2-Cherries gouges in near perfect, hardly used condition - $20
*Three Piece set of brand new Craftsman Chisels - $5
*Eight graduated sized, collectable Stanley and Dunlap (all made in USA) Hand Planes AND
including a brand-new, unused Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide. Total price $35!
* 140 Back issues of Fine Woodworking, Shop Notes, Woodsmith, American Woodturner magazines - $10
There was some absolutely fabulous cherry lumber there, most boards 16ft and as wide as 16", but like an idiot, I had taken the small car and they wanted it out immediately, so I had to just look and wish.
Guy that did buy it all got an incredible steal. (about 400BF for less than $200)
So, my sale week went well, and I'm off to Nigeria on Friday until the middle of January. Yuck!
Some Festool dealers will be pleased to hear from me around Feb 1st. I've got more green
I plan to acquire then!
