Title: Why doesn't Festool make an automatic grape peeler?
Post by: Kev on July 16, 2017, 05:13 AM
I've come to the conclusion over the years that if I want to have the optimal tool for a particular job it just may not be offered by Festool. It probably doesn't come or fit in a Systainer, needs different batteries, doesn't connect easily to the CT-xxxx and isn't plug-it compatible.

Once you liberate yourself from the Festool compulsion you'll be a lot healthier [smile]

Now I've got that off my chest .. I can't wait for the new cordless sanders to hit the Oz market [big grin]

Fun title to your post. I'm guessing the Festool gets some usable indications of product interest from this forum. They then have to weigh that input against other factors and make their product decisions.

I've advocated in the wishlist for a Centrotec  standard pencil sharpener. I'd totally pay $20 for that.

This was a sort of design experiment a few years back, I dont think anything ever came of it though.
Salt / pepper mill, bottle opener etc, made to fit a Centrotec drill

(Yes, I would buy one immediately if offered!)

Someone stole Alton Brown's idea.

Master project of a design student, got him hired by festool (as the soole product designer employed there on a perpetual contract), IIRC.

I would certainly buy the grill lighter ventilator.
