I wish Festool made a Sweeping 90 degree antistatic fitting for use with their extractors and extractor accessories.  I would like it to have one male end and the other a female end.  It would be nice to be able to plug such a fitting directly into one's extractor and then plug their hose into the other end.  And, it would work nicely using two fittings to make a 180 degree bend for those of us connecting a cyclone to their extractors.
Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

Can you guys make me a robot to do all the work for me, all I have to do is tell him?

I would pay a decent amount of money for that.

Needs to be easy to carry, quick to set-up and some sort of filtration device. [big grin]

Cool idea Terry, having had the privilege to work with a bunch of antipodeans a few years back I quite understand the "worth the expense of rooting a perfectly good Trim Stop"  ;D Cheers.

Oh, I woodwork for a living and while you are golfing I would rather be woodworking as well for a hobby. Nap, what the heck is that?

I'd also like a corded drill. I could get a Protool that's probably excellent too but it just doesn't feel the same.

Longer longitude profile for MFT/3. Many people extend or joint MFT tables, so it would be helpful for cutting longer pieces with MFT table

...section on their website for discontinued tools.

Adios CT 22 and CT33. Nice knowing you.

http://www.festoolusa.com/products/dust-extractors

But if I want to check out accessories for the CT22 I can still go here (I was looking for something today and eventually found it).

http://www.festoolusa.com/accessories/dust-extractors.html?compatibility=583366

I think Festool should have a section on their website for older model tools, so we can still easily find accessory info, owners manuals etc in one place.

Yes!  That is a great idea.  I spent a longgg time trying to find what battery to order for a TDK-12.  Good thing Uncle Bob knew the answer!

I wish Festool made a SDS hammer driil   but with the special chucks just like the T+15 some how.  So you could attach an angle chuck on your SDS dont know how the impact rod would work for an angle chuck but im sure festool will have a solution.

Also wish they made a cordless fein with an adapter for hammering nails in like a palm nailer.  So you can get nails upto 100mm in tight spaces but probably main use would be for nailing small twist nails with joist hangers and things like that.  I know AEG are bring out a new Fein tool with the hammer adapter but festool would do a better job I reckon.

That would be a Trion, a Carvex and a RAS 115 all three can do that and more.

This board misses the emoticon for jaw-dropping... I was already quite impressed with the Rotex and 40 grit Crystal, but this is astonishing! Granted, pine is soft but this was only 120 grit. Thanks for that video.

Back on topic, things I would like to see:
  • more documentation and video's about using the tools; hire people like Rick, Brice, Jerry etc to write more manuals
  • a metric bradpoint centrotec set with the countersink like the imperial one you folks got in the US (yes, you're allowed to feel smug now)
  • bigger systainers; a sys-2 for the C12 and RTS400 would be more practical IMO than the sys-1 they come in now
  • a less noisy CTL mini / midi
  • a CTL mini / midi SET with accessoires for generic workshop / household cleaning
  • bench and raildogs for use with the MFT; I got them from Steve (QWAS), they are excellent and Steve was great with getting them to me in the Netherlands but with Festool selling them more people would know about them / buy them. Then sell just the MFT without the extras: less expensive and with the dogs even easier to transport.
  • all abbrasives available in 10-packs, at a price (per sheet) only marginally higher than the 50/100 packs
  • hand sanding blocks with dust extraction with reasonable prices
  • a hand sanding block with dust extraction for two 80x130 sheets lengthwise (mind the previous point)
  • a small tool/accessoire to drill straigth (90 degrees on both axes), like for dowels but for more drill diameters (starting at 3mm)
  • a small (like the Leatherman Juice) multitool with a serated sheep's foot blade and corkscrew; would make a great gift!

Well, that's all for now  [wink]

If someone saw that my old Hitachi was improperly guarded in that video, I apologize.  BUT!  Rest assured that the offending, mis treated piece of equipment that had a yellow blade in that video now rests at the bottom of a landfill.

My Kapex has all the safety equipment installed and in working order!  [big grin]

Thanks. I mean that I need extended profile for long Protractor rail. Let say I  have 2 meters MFT table, but I want cut shelves 7 feet high. Right now I'm limited with 36".
