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. [sad]  Guy that did buy it all got an incredible steal. (about 400BF for less than $200)  [eek]

So, my sale week went well, and I'm off to Nigeria on Friday until the middle of January. Yuck! [crying]

Some Festool dealers will be pleased to hear from me around Feb 1st. I've got more green I plan to acquire then!

Cheers,

Frank

I have been wanting to build a miter saw stand fashioned after the one Peter Parfitt built and graciously shared with all of us on YouTube.  Decided to start thebuild with a new Kapex vs. building a stand for my old DeWalt.  Picked up some parallel guides at the same time.

Not a dam thing, but i have been using the heck outa my Festool the last couple weeks on a daily basis round the clock 6am to 11pm like you only do when you have a unrealistic deadline.

Im tired like fall on my face tired but not to tired to squeeze in the time to go buy a new jointer tomorrow. Not a festool but maybe just as exciting?

Received two sysport 1000's today.  Now my poor systainers have a nice cozy home where I can actually reach them easily! ;D  Only my T15 wouldn't fit, no matter how many ways I tried to configure them.  It rests comfortably on top which is actually fine since I use that drill more than any other tool I have. Might at some point have to get a 500 and then a few more things to fill that up!

I mentioned above that I recently got a Kapex.  I then decided to order a T18+3 and had my dealer get me a FastFix Depth Stop Chuck (say that ten times fast).  But now I am done for a while.  This time I mean it.  No more green kool aid in my near future.  I have what I need so no more research and no more purchases.  Seriously, this time I mean it.  I'm done for a while I really am.......

Just put mu order in for a TS55 and a CT36. Ordered from the tool nut. Seem like great people on the phone. I got the holy rail as the other post suggested. Can't wait to make some dust.

Good thing about the TS and a CT.....you won't see much dust at all.  Enjoy!

In the last week I bought the Toolie, CXS, and the Centrotec Installer's Kit.

Time to start selling my other tools so I can buy more Festool!!!

Okay guys.  What I'm about to tell you is a little....NO....it's embarrassing!   This happened this past Tuesday by the way.

Last week  I bought two T-loc systainers off eBay.   No big deal, right?

So, I get home Monday (December 15,2014) and I see a small package at my door.  I was a little unsure what it could be.

I knew the two systainers where coming soon, but thought the package was TOO SMALL for two sys-1's.

I open up the box,  it freakin'  TWO MINI SYS!!!

I quickly check my eBay profile, checked the listing and sure enough......the seller listed the dimensions of the systainers....not the size.

Now, I thought I bought two sys-1's at a great price!    Turns out, I bought two mini's at a not so great price.

I know, my fault for not reading the full description of the listing.   But I didn't want to let two "sys-1's" get away so cheap, I hurried with the "buy now" button.   

Lesson learned, trust me.   I will read the description more then once!   And try to control my buying happy fingers.  LOL
