Thanks ! Think I'll pop in on Monday, we've had one open recently nearby and I've spent quite a bit there and they always knock a bit off and generally match nuts and bolts prices. However that beats them by £20. Wicked price

I bought one of these for me and one for a bud.  Though I have 2 different Installer Sets, I think this is a nice bit of kit.

I haven't seen that set before .. I fancy that!

I was thinking ( I know that's very dangerous) that this would be brilliant when I'm loading up my tool box and don't want to haul a entire installer set with me.

Plus I got a pretty good price, I paid about. £ 20 for it. It's NAINA (I think) as I checked a couple of dealers websites. So it's another NAINA item I can bring back with me.
Makes a great Xmas Present for the wife.

Seems my Festool purchases come in waves.... Following last weekends Kapex 120 I reviewed a PDC 18/4 full set today.

Not used properly yet but it seems like a solid combi drill and the perfect partner to my CXS.

Next purchase will sadly not be festool..... But a package deal of 4 bessy K body clamps with 2 uni clamps thrown in has proven to good not to get while ITS in the UK have them I special offer.

Might want to check DM Tools @Petey83 just in case.
I checked it when I read his post and for a change ITS are cheaper :)

Oh yes they are, I bought some recently and they weren't then. I'm getting some 60s and have a bucketload of loyalty points to use too.

I was thinking of putting a few nailers in the bottom drawer. I bought some kaizen material for the bottom to place the nailers into. I'm hoping the other drawers will accomodate the nails. That's my plan anyways.

I got a package the other day, my dog bought me a birthday present. A new sander the ETS EC 125 from ToolNut great service & good people. All kidding a side it's a great sander very easy to use, one or two hands, no learning curve, very light and it did not matter what the setting was on the extractor. This will be my go to sander. I also have the RO 90 good sander but it's a little harder to control.

Just ordered the wife and kids some plug it 110V conversion kits for Christmas. I think they will really like them.

I'm also picking up a couple of those Anderson Ply MFT squares. They will make nice tree ornaments when we decorate the tree.

I tell ya Anderson Ply has really gone out of their way to help me get these shipped over to my APO.

I'm quite pleased and surprised they would put that much attention on such a small purchase.

I just got this 500312 CT Wing. It's holding up my level so I can scribe a line. It was dark, I didn't realize the pic came out so bad. Looks like I need to get a Festool 500723 KAL II SysLite LED Worklamp. [embarassed]

A couple of days ago ... I got a Syslite KAL II Work Light with the (excellent!) spherical ball-head & magnet / clamp attachment.

I'm adapting the steel 'keeper' plate for the magnet on the ball-head clamp by fitting it with a metal s-hook. This will let me hang the light (when I need to) even when I've attached one of a larger 5.2Ah battery packs to the KAL II.  I hope to post some pictures of my crafty extra s-hook modification in another sub-forum soon.

I've just taken the plunge even deeper in to the festool world by buying a ctl midi complete with the cleaning kit, to complement the TS55 I bought the other month. 
I'm also pleased to say that the 27mm hose fits my old Metabo SXE450 sander perfectly  [big grin] so should get a thorough work out on tomorrows job.

Well I'm pleased to say the midi worked a treat with the metabo and the cleaning kit did a cracking job of cleaning the dust generated from hand sanding  the detailed bits.  I'm glad the cleaning kit has a picture of how to fit it all back in the box as its a snug fit  [big grin]

I´ve bought the long desired CXS along with the Sys-Centrotec 2015-W Tool Systainer. Maybe the purchase was a little bit impulsive because i have already the Bosch Uneo, which works flawless now for about 10 years. I have to do some work next year at another place, so i though it was a good idea to have another tool since i wanted a smaller drill than the Bosch Uneo. What i really need is the angle for the drill, since i have to work in some small places.

Nevertheless, now i have the drill along with all accessories in 2 very small Systainers, which is a further step in organization for the different small task i have to do once in a while. I took the Bosch Uneo drill also on the picture because he has one thing, i didnt thought enough about: the impact driver. Since the Festool CXS is not able to drill into concrete, i needed the Bosch Uneo, which is one of the smallest impact drill i know and i have to take it along with the CXS. Maybe i should buy also a systainer for the Bosch Uneo.

The Centrotec systainer was quite expensive, but i want to have all tools together in one single systainer, so the organization is much better now. (Although i still need the Bosch ....)

But i already love the CXS for its accuracy, its compactness and its power.

Was going to go down to Missoula today to buy a 1400, but they don't have one in stock.  Darn!

A couple of hours later the store called and one came in today, so my wife and I drove down to pick it up.  Since it is 85+ miles one way, it took a while.

@danbox can't wait for your feedback on this - we down under are awfully curious about how well it can cut a decent trench in some hardwood.

I ordered a KAL II SysLite from Toolnut the other day.  Guessing I will be happy given the reviews I have read.  Next will be a new brushless 125 to share abrasives with my RO125.

Hey Kev ,

Let me know what ya think about the belt sander. Ive been thinking about getting one for a while now, even though they only come in 240, Im thinking it might be worth it.
