.....  I can definitely see a use for the baby FSK rail on the small saw.

@Grakat

I was doing a small bit of framing today and it was only after screwing about with the cordless Metabo SCMS that I realised the HKC55 and FSK250 would have been a better and less messy choice [embarassed] Ironic that the very reason I got the Metabo SCMS to complement the KAPEX (where the KAPEX was just a little too cumbersome to bother dragging out) now the HKC55 and FSK's kinda make it a wasted buy - still like it though [smile]

Yes I considered the same thing with the HKC55. In the beginning I thought it was just a glorified cordless circular saw but the more I looked at it I saw a cordless portable SMCS.

I have some timber to rip down using an FS guide rail, I think I will be grabbing the HKC over the TS saw for this job.

Since I've owned my HKC55, haven't touched my scms.
I even trimmed an interior door combining it with the FS rail and 32-tooth blade over the weekend.

It was my 3rd Festool (I think). I have put it through its paces over the years... Never let me down.  Enjoy it!

 2.7 meter rail and are TS55R to replace my old TS55 that I have had for 8 years. My old TS55 still works fine but it is starting to get a bit buggered after 8 years of abuse but will still keep it on the back of the ute for door trimming.

I finally broke down and bought the RO 90 sander.  I have a project where I need to sand a bunch of corners and thought this would be more versatile than the DTS400. 

My only disappointment is that I only got two pieces of sandpaper as samples - one round and one delta.  In the past I have seen much more generous sample packs.  Is this the new norm, or was my kit supposed to have a lot more sandpaper?

It has been that way for sometime I believe...  I got my RO 90 with 2 as well 3.5 years ago!

Enjoy that little devil!

Festool change the amount of the sample packs about 3-4 years ago. So, yes, this is the, well, not-so-new norm.

Temporarily into storage ...

... I'm about half way with the systainers.

We're going to put our house on the market in the middle of spring, then start the search. The plan is to find something that'll give us a lot more space and a some good opportunities to change our lifestyle.

Looks like you've increased the value of that storage facility by about $100k lol.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.
