In Europe we can buy hoses by the meter. Is that not offered in the USA?


Right , only the premade  lengths are available in the USA.

Here we go again...

Shall we dredge up square bits too while we're at it?


Considering the difficulty they are having with getting square bits going, maybe they should just invent their own screws with heads that take round driver bits.

I wish Festool made a car.

Just think of the nifty attachment they'd have for cutting through heavy traffic. Plus it'd come in it's own garage (unfortunately you'd probably need to open the roof and lift it out).

A pre lit artificial Christmas tree that would work past its warranty period and had a feature where if there was trouble with the lights the light nearest the problem would blink.

I would pay double for that one!

Happy Holidays!

This is more a suggestion of what would improve the Drill they have already. (probably also already suggested)
I have a set of Countersinks with drill and my old eyes cant quickly tell the difference in size at the back of the draw.
So could they please colour code the neck of the drill for easy recognition.

I would REALLY like a Centrotec nut driver set in Metric. 5mm through at least 14 mm. I would pay a good price for it too.
Metric and Imperial would be very nice as well.

If this has already been brought up, I apologize. The thread is just to long to read through the whole thing.

Well, there is this adapter in both 1/4'' and 3/8'' so you can mount any nut driver you want:



Isn't it sold in the states?

Yup, we can get 'em here and I have them both. I use them quite a bit and love them, but a matching set of nut drivers would just be awesome! I haven't figured out  a slick way to fit a socket set in a systainer so nut drivers were my next idea.

... made a module so I could turn my cordless drill into a corded one, and it would also work on the carvex when it is released in the US.

C15/18 impact driver
and a hammer drill.

I was just thinking today about a module that would slip on to a cordless drill or carvex.
I was looking at stuff on Ebay and some guy was selling drills and a Carvex without the batteries. (He sells the charger and batteries separately)
That's when I thought we need an attachment to connect it to the mains.
I cant decide whether to get a cordless or mains Carvex this would solve my dilemma.
Can we have it before October please.

Plus one on this. The ability to run then C15 on a battery or 110volts would be great. I have one of these adapters for my iCom radio. The module replaces the battery and allows you to connect the iCom radio to the 12 volt socket in the car.  Not the same but the same idea on 110 volts.

I'd really like a chuck to fit my CXS that took standard hex bits without having to use an adapter.
