hard sanding pad for the ETS 125.

bench clamp adapter for the RO 150 to use as a stationary sander for small parts.

36-27mm hose nozzle  adapter so I don't need to keep swapping hoses.

GaryB,

Festool don't make one, but you can make one yourself from 2x 27mm hose ends and a short length of 27mm hose. There's a few posts about it.

Or if you prefer, Bob Marino sells them pre-made through his website I believe.

I wish Festool made a systainer for the battery drills that had the charger mounted so I would not have to remove the charger to use and could just open a door on the systainer to pull out the charger cord. That way I take up less space on site and don't get dust in the sys.

This would apply to the now cordless jigs coming out also...

If more product go cordless.... maybe a charger systainer... One plug.... to all Chargers in the box

Cheers,
Steve

I wouldn't worry about it guys, its not their crowning glory.  If i had to give up 1 Festool, that would be it.
If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.

A flashlight, that would use the Festool cordless drill batteries, so I can get back the space that the Dewalt batteries & charger are taking up in my work truck.
A radio would be nice also.

No one yet mentioned a reciprocating saw (Sawzall, not a jigsaw), with ample and integrated dust collection.

An impact driver would be huge.  I could retire my Ryobi (I do love it though).  I saw in his recent pictorial that Frank Pellow uses these also.   [smile]



This would be a huge one for me. I am so tired of making contraptions to fit my sawzall for sucking dust at the source.
Anyone can vac sawzall dust off of a floor,... but a pro does it at the blade because it is faster, easier, SMARTER. and put a headlight on it too!

Has anyone asked for a 13 inch benchtop thickness planer with a spiral cutter head and pretty black and green markings. I would buy one in a minute. Sorry if I'm twicing, but it's a loooong thread and I'm too lazy to read the whole thing. :)

A drywall cutout tool with extreme dust collection.

Okay this is not Festool... but if you want as you say "A drywall cutout tool with extreme dust collection". Use a Fein Muti Master with a universal blade at a 45 degree angle . Take the Festool crevice tool and duct tape it on the bottom of the FMM very close to the blade. You will find the right distance from the cutting edge with a little practice. And then connect to a CT22 or bigger Festool extractor. You can cutout a section of sheet rock with a razor thin cut and use it as the patch.  I was working for engineer and he was a dust freak... (as am I) I bet him double the cost of the job or free if he had dust on his black baby grand piano. It was easy money...but betting is not legal in my state so I never did that...really IRS.

If you need to cut out Elec. boxes holes etc put a Y connection on the CT and have the FMM set as I stated above and then have the second hose pulling the dust from the back side of the cut.

Really this works very very well.

Cheers,
Steve

Doesn't Rotozip (Bosch) have this?  I usually use the Rotozip DR1 for drywall work which has a different end on it so you can't attach dust collection, but I also have the regular full Rotozip kit and I thought it had an adapter for dust hose pickup.  I'll check later today.

No, I didn't get the secret code yet.  I'm about to buy a Kapex, which will cause the package to become available 32 days later.

Yes, I have a new Rotozip 2000, too, but the dust collection still is messy.

How about a saw that doesn't produce dust in the first place?

 ::)


More realistically, how about a self-centering chuck?

Kind of like the self-centering bits, but the bit goes inside of it such that any bit up to some maximum diameter and length behaves as a self-centering one...

Two items for extractors. 

AS gates for the "Y" connector so I don't have to lose suction or switch hoses all the time.

AS connector that lets me connect any size (they all have the same size going into the Extractor)  to a 27mm and one that would work for the 36mm and one for the 50mm.

Cheers,
Steve

an easy mount router table for one of their own routers with the incremental raise/lower feature.

I also wish the Festool owners group monitors will add a request to keep sexist remarks about women ("Festool Women"? come on this is not jr. high) off this site.  I mean I can appreciate jokes but this is not the place for it.

I posted this on our Facebook fan page recently and there were a lot of responses. 

Obviously, we've had many threads here with various "wishes" but in a word or two, let's hear what you wish Festool would offer that it currently doesn't.
