@Kev

That thing looks like the Ron Jeremy of power tools  [eek]

Is that a Sys5 that it comes in.

@Grakat - Yep it's a sys5 and it only just fits. If you haven't got it sitting perfectly in the supporting foam you can't shut the lid. It's wet here and I can't really play with it at the moment [crying] [sad]

I don't have space to swing a small rodent in my garage at the moment and all of my saw horses and timber are in the "B shed", so it'll have to wait.

It happened while I was visiting a dealer - a SysRock hopped into my shopping bag... I resisted the urge for so long, now I have to finally admit defeat.

Great sound, not just while working...  [eek]  [big grin] [big grin]

Finally jumping into the Festool tracksaw club and bought the TSC 55 this morning!

It's my first tracksaw and should be arriving tomorrow (thanks quick shipping festoolproducts/toolnut!).

Wow what a dream to use. I tried it connected to my CT and the hose is just cumbersome in my opinion. The bag that comes with the TSC however captures the majority of the dust and I can't really imagine using the corded version.

Sample picture of 10 cuts I made in 5/4" pine. Each cut a little over 4 feet long. Batteries I used started at around 80% and after all 10 cuts was still going (LED was one bar at this point) but did not slow down at all. Not sure how many more cuts I would need to make before recharging.

Great photo Oliver...nice composition, the colors are spot on. [thumbs up] 

Was that taken with a camera rather than an iPhone?

Second thought, maybe that is from a phone because of the lengthy DOF.

I just rounded up 2 saw blades that are NLAINA...that'd be No Longer Available In North America.  [crying] [sad] [mad]

The Festool aluminum blade for the TS 55 and the same blade for the Kapex.  [cool]

Or to put it in a different vernacular, the saw blades that were orphaned because Festool decided to obsolete the spark trap, which necessarily obsoleted their metal cutting blades, which necessarily diminished their law suits, which yada yada yada. Sometimes my head just hurts thinking through the Festool thought process.

Joined the CXS fraternity today. Played around with it the other day and said I would think about it.
Was in the store today and it was on special, how could I say no [big grin]

Couldn't agree more, lol. :) BTW: If you can, try one of the limited H.Upmann Magnum 56 - imo it's the best cigar Cuba has to offer right now. I'm tempted to say, even better than the Behike - but it will need a couple of more to verify... ;) Better than the Maduro 5 Genios I had Thursday, for sure.

Tonight I'm probably going with an OpusX The Lost City from Arturo Fuente.

Bought my last Festool Sander today. RO150 with some 6" paper. I now have the full set of sanders made by Festool for woodworking.

Looking to do a sys vac system next

@ceddy link they're just releasing the connectors here in Oz, but for some strange reason they aren't offering the starter kit. A real dumb move to my thinking .. I'm torn between sourcing one from Europe and getting a new Sortainer and stocking it up with the various components.

Looking forward to hear what you think of them [wink]

Ordered my first cordless Festool today, HKC55 with the FSK420 rail. They have to get it in as I didn't want it made up from bits and pieces.

I thought AU premium dealers were supposed to have everything in stock  :-\

I purchased a METRIC based OF 1400 to tag along with the OF 1010 before the metric version follows in the same footsteps as the MFS, spark trap & aluminum cutting saw blades.  [mad] [mad] [crying]

FYI, the kits is very heavy so it might cost a little fortune to ship. I fit the kit in the suitcase (smallest non carry on Rimowa) and with cloths and a few other things it tiped the scales at 20 Kg.

Basically I just wanted another set of the "stubby" centrotec wood drill bits that work so great with the CXS's angle attachment...

This is what I left the dealer with... Oh, and again - new to me dealer - trying them all now, one at a time...

@Kev
You are right about not being able to swing a small rodent in your garage [big grin]

Looks good mate. The grooving unit looks a lot better in its own Systainer rather than you being expected to throw it in with the saw. I have the FSK420 rail with the HKC55, I can definitely see a use for the baby FSK rail on the small saw.
