I've long held the suspicion that the Felder family are from Vulcan [scratch chin]

Not today, but last 10 days, a 150mm Rotex, Syslite, LS130. I always add quite a few extras for the tools. Just starting to take paid jobs, do some job, buy some more.. hehe. Next will be some more systainers for sand-paper, and other tools

Finally got my Sys 4 Sort 3 after quite a long wait. I got one set of small organizing boxes and dividers. I think it's a very useful thing and plan on getting another as well as a couple of Sys combis, probably one of each version..

Look what just came through my letterbox today  [scared]
Is it a sign???


I keep getting those and I've never expressed any interest in Felder. I've not got a huge workshop either so I couldn't have one if I wanted one lol

Here are a few of my first experiences with the Syslite DUO.
- No ON/OFF switch on the light, just unplug the cord instead
- No dimmer or variable light settings
- A lot of lumen for the bucks
- Very bright/clean light
- Multiple positions possible when on the floor or hanging from a screw/nail
- Delivered in systainer SYS 3 (Plus/Set versions only)
- Power cord can be wrapped around the base
- Very sturdy tripod
- No strap for the tripod
- Power cord is neatly connected to tripod down to the floor.
I'm really fond of lights on the job site and when you get older you need more light.
It once started with the battery powered drills, jigsaws, etc. and the Syslite KAL has become my favourite for small spaces and now this Syslite DUO will become my favourite to lighten large spaces.

It easier for me to direct you to a (famous) Dutch website where a lot of pictures are taken for a review of the DUO.
But the FOG doesn't let me post the right link to the website? It's "banned".
If you google on "review Festool Duo lamp" it will show up somewhere on the first page.
If necessary Google can help you to translate the Dutch text.

Yes indeed it's a nice collection and still growing. It's collected over the last 15 years.
I use and buy them on a professional basis as a private housing renovator and furniture craftsman.
And Germany are our neighbours and some machines and accessories are way cheaper there (±40-50%).
Some I use everyday (drills, saws) and some only once a year and then it's nice to have them in the cupboard.
But the amount of systainers becomes a problem in my workshop now.

Ls130 with extras, a ETS EC 150/3. And interface for RO90 & RO150, more grits for all sanders. A good day:). Next should probably be systainer so for sandpaper. And building a couple of sysports suited to move to external workplaces.

That bohrstaub d27-bsd. Is that the one that they or Starmix have copied.  Because i have that one from Starmix.  And it really works perfectly. Making holes in concrete without dust. Even when you are maken holes in the ceiling above you.

Hi matte,

I honestly have no idea who came up with it first, I didn't even knew Starmix had this accessory. But good to know that it works really well, I'm curious to see how it will work for me.
