Im waiting for festool to make one of these!!! 

Why is it taking so long!!!!!    Oh Festool! Make sure it takes 14.4 and 18V like the Carvex its a good feature!!!

(Attachment Link)

Can you please elaborate on the advantages of having a cordless tool that still needs to be hooked up to a vacuum?
As much as I like cordless tools, in this particular case it would only make the tool heavier, and less user-friendly - even if a method could be devised to switch on the vacuum without current draw from the tool.
That in itself wouldn't be much of a challenge, but it would complicate the vac and the tool, probably the hose as well.

Lee Nielsen makes very nice cordless planers, btw.

I have edited the picture! happy now?!?!   Im not going to put the dust bag on  [tongue]   If you want the dust bag on when you buy the tool you can put it on!  As festool don't sell the dust bag with the festool planer any way so they wont with the cordless! Its an accessory! Thats my reason!!!

I know that, but I was only referring to the fact that a powerplaner without chip/dustcollection makes a heck of a mess, even if you take only a small amount off.
So the vacuum is more or less mandatory for an "in situ" job, unless you want to spend a lot of time cleaning up afterwards - using a brush and dustpan, which as it happens are also cordless....
If you don't want to spew around chips AND want to be cordless ( which has its advantages, I'll agree ) simply use a handplane.
Just my 0.02 as usual.

I find with the dust bag which what I got with the EHL 65 on the left side only having it on the right side its useless. Is good enough as I create mess using my chisel for the lock and hinges and having a dust sheet down I simply fold it up and done I can leave the job!  I prefer using Packexe though if I know ill being doing jobs around the house for a week.  Like I have been doing on the last two jobs.  

Also not always about dust! I was working for this firm had 7 houses built and I Was working from house to house but in random order and different things so other trades could carry on.  Now I got my self a wheel barrel and but all my tools in that but it took two trips as I had leads and transformer. Not all building had power so I had to go to the nearest house!  

Some of the houses were done more than others  so when I done some of the jobs for the other trade on the other houses I had to go to the others which had been carpeted and the doors where a bit tight on the carpet so I had to take a bit off! I hate using hand plane with end grain so a cordless planer is nicer to remove the bottom of the door plus its much easier.

I had a long wheel Lead, T15 drill, fold able trestles, Transformer. Now I dont know about you but you cant carry that all in one go!   Well if I had the Corddles Planer all I would need is Two systainers attached together in one had. One would have the T15 and the other cordless planer. In my other hand I would be carrying the fold able trestles.  I dont see how you dont see it makes your life so much easier!   With Lie-Nielsen you would have to sharpen them and it awkward to do the bottoms of doors especially with end grain and you got large shaving to pic up! The cordless plane willjust be small bits as the bag takes to big bits so the wind can take the small bits!! Its easier to hand plane the side of doors I know but not bottom.

This is all a bit beyond me, as I don't work on building sites, and besides, over here we don't have the need to carry a transformer around.  You either have grid power ( 95% of the time ) or you don't.
And when working on existing houses, power is always available.
In my experience a dustbag with a planer is a useless acessory. If I have to take of that little, I get a handplane. I don't mind sharpening plane irons, like I don't mind sharpening chisels.
Although I currently don't own one, I know from experience a good low angle block plane makes short work with endgrain. And when the need arises, even a decently sharpened #4 Bailey will do. At least I still have that one...

But hey, a cordles powerplaner may well be your go-to tool. Whatever rings your bell.
Anyhow: you've made clear why such a tool would be useful in your situation, which is what I asked in the first place.
Thank you for that.

lol yeah but  then you might aswell use a corded planer?!?!? or a TS55 like you said but then thats more stuff cus you have to carry a guide rail aswell!     My ambition its to carry as less stuff as possible on some types of jobs where dust extraction is not necessary.

I have cordless Circular saw, Cordless DRILLs, Cordless Jigsaws, Cordless angle grinder, Cordless hacksaw, Cordless Nail guns, Cordless auto Screw gun, cordless Radio see where im going?!?!?!?! lol

All I need now Is Cordless Circular Guide rail saw (im not buying the Dewalt cordless guide rail saw) and Cordless Planer

My jobs are small and big. So yes I would use power cus its quicker but I like the option and some times you have a bit of both.  Like yesterday I fitted laminate flooring in the hall and lounge! I couldnt be bother to set up my kapex gets in the way and you got to walk back and forth.  All I had out was my Milwueakee Cordless Circular saw as all cuts where are hidden under skirting which ill b fitting monday its was very quick as I kept the cordless by my side all the time with a corded circular saw you have the cable doing your head in well it does my head in any way!!

Are they any good I have seen them on the internet but im power tool mad so I dont tend to give things like that much thought unless its really beneficial.  Cus I need the circular saw any way to hand to rip the boards down and to notch them. The flooring guillotine will only cut it to length

What they said:

1: "Lunchbox" 13inch Thinknesser/Planer
2: Benchtop Bandsaw
3: Front Drawer Systainers

Plus one I didn't see:

A Low Flow / High Volume dust extractor with 4" connection & HEPA filter for use with the Planer above.

It must be!

Years ago a company. I think called Woodcraft, made an aluminium jig that was clamped to the timber by G clamps and you put a combined cutter and guide into a drill chuck and away you went.

Man it was crap and the tearout was so bad as to be artistic. Haven't seen one in years!

Having said that any such machine is surely already in Festools range, the OF1400 and the dovetail jig the VS600.

So I would not imagine they would see the commercial value of another type of router.

The ability to attach the MFK 700 on the LR 32 Hole Drilling System plate. The plate works with the OF 1010 and the OF 1400 why not the MKF 700?

Greg,

I'm not sure of the benefit of combining the lr 32 and 700.   Both the 1010 and 1400 plunge, which is necessary to use with the 32, but the 700 doesn't.  What would be the application for the addition of the 700 to the system?

i think its poor  that they use slotted screws

The slotted screws are use for a reason.  Festool does not want you to over tighten the screws and put a dimple in your rail. Look at the MFT/3 connectors they use an allen screws.  So Festool does know the difference.
