 [welcome] to the forum!

Looks like you stumbled on to a great deal. Unfortunately, it is the beginning of a long downward spiral into the Green Koolaid!

You will be amazingly surprised at how your efficiency will massively improve! [big grin]

Welcome to the addiction!  Resistance is futile! [scared]

Cheers,
Frank

Oh I'm sure of that,  I've always hated using a biscuit joiner so I've had the Domino on my wish list for a long time.  I've been using a Grizzly track saw for the past few months and love it but I managed to snag the TS 55 with everything for not much more than what the 118" rail retails for.  Once my wife forgets how much I spent at this auction I'll probably pick up a 125 EQ and a CT next.  I really wanted the MIDI they had at the auction but it went for $50-$60 less than a brand new one.

Well I tried to buy a Festool but it was NAINA.  Looked at Mafell and chocked on the price.  But for less than $400 I can cut up to 12"  Got all the stuff and put it together today:

I am new to Festool and this forum, and have gone kinda crazy with it in the last couple of weeks.  My latest is a new CXS, which I picked up at Woodcraft last Thursday.  I has the 2.6AH batteries and a Jacobs chuck which now goes to 3/8"/10mm.  What a nice little drill!

A 48 tooth TS-55 blade, thats what happens when you wait to long to send blades out to be sharpened. Packed and shipped 19 blades to Leitz for service today. Order 2 Kapex blades from Tom-------overnighted.
Good to know the take bulk orders, I only have a half dozen, well maybe a dozen...

The items I ordered the other day would make most cringe. Most are due here tomorrow also, the rest has to wait for July 1 to ship.
Did you get the conturo?

No, not this time.

A lot of little things on my add/fix/need list,

TSC, PDC, Cordless Carvex (all sets), from Tom.

A set of phenolic straight edges with corners.

The 2200 and bits that were offer in the classified.

Had 2 specialty Kapex blades over nighted, they arrived today. Need to plan better.

I did keep it under a 10K Friday (barley).

The Conturo has been moved to next in line.

Oh yah, I dropped something one of my 1400 rails today, dented and bent the C channel, had to change the TCS to with rail.

Did I ever mention I love my wife [thumbs up]

Good thing my neighbors love me, had a semi, UPS and FedEX here all at the same time. Street was unappeasable.

A systainer 1, the one with all the small colorful boxes inside.
Will use the small boxes in my drill systainers to keep bits and pieces.

This month I poured a crate of Festool Koolaid all over the wallet and ended up getting the updated EHL65, another OFK500, a trimming attachment for the CS50 table saw, bought a bunch of drills, a MIDI systainer and just as I though I was bled dry the local pusher literally ran after me and told me they were selling out the T12+3 and C12 sets at less than HALF the price (!) and he thought of me when he put the stickers up that morning.

= two more boxes loaded into the car. All this on my first day on vacation.  [embarassed]
Festool:  CS 50EB precisio set, Domino DF500, DF XL 700, OFK500 edge router, OF1010 router EHL65 planer, CTL Mini/Midi Vac, CTL 26 vac MFT800+1080 tables
DSC-AG Grinder,  RAS 115
Rotex 150, ETS EC 150/5 RTS400
Drills: T18, BHC18, CXS.
SysLite KAL II, SYS Rock.
Sys- and Sortainers galore.

Line up has been reduced with the introduction of Mafell/Metabo tools. Red Green and Blue do mix well in the shop.
