i cant for the life of me visualize what you're requesting

I want a suction cup (a smaller gecco lever type) that would attach to the RO90 in orbital only mode.    the lever would be right in front of the sander and latch to one side prefferably down to the left.  Its purpose is to fully bed tile in thinset. 

I'm imagining a RO 90 in Dalek orientation with it's toilet plunger.  [eek]

Ok my wish is a bit different than most on here
How about a sys 4 split into two, the bottom half having a decent DAB radio,whilst the top opens to have a single socket for charging iPhone etc maybe a couple of compartments as well for keys etc and powered by a single plug it lead
This would make life bliss for all festool nuts with OCD [scared]

From my OCD perspective "etc" is not acceptable. I need detail and I need a clean, hygienic compartment for each!

I wish they made a 18v impact driver with a magnetic catch for screws.

They do - it's called a Protool PDC 18-4. Just not for NA ... you're waiting to see the Ti15. I certainly can't see the reluctance to release the Protool cordless range into the US ... but I suppose the rest of the Protool range being 240v is the issue.

No Kev.  Impact driver, not hammer drill.  There is a difference.  Found an article to help explain to anyone who's interested in the differences.

I seriously wish Festool would make a C/T/Ti/Carvex battery shaped mains to 14.4V transformer with a swiveling Plug-it cord socket on the outer edge of it at the end (like on the PSB400 corded Carvex) for transforming all Festool battery operated machines for corded use when extended continuous use time is needed.

This should be a trivial job for Festool to do and it would be so usable across the board from C/T/Ti drills to the cordless Carvexes (especially when connected to the CMS module) and now even the Syslite would benefit from this on jobsite use.

Even DSLR camera manufacturer have these main connection kits, why not Festool?

Pretty sure the words on this page say "impact" ...

http://www.protool.com.au/mediandoweb/index.cfm?ID_O_TREE_GROUP=5872&ID_O_PRODUCT=371607

But there's more to take your pick from ...

http://www.protool.com.au/mediandoweb/index.cfm?ID_O_TREE_GROUP=5873

And models without and bangy/thumpy functions ...

http://www.protool.com.au/mediandoweb/index.cfm?ID_O_TREE_GROUP=4807&ID_O_PRODUCT=371602

Anyway - I'm aware of the difference ... but percussion, hammer, impact all get misused as terms here unfortunately! Nuff said that the Protool range has nice options across the 18v range. Maybe they'll get an NA release along with the most recent facelift.

Kev,

I saw that word too (impact), but I believe it was just loosely translated from German.  A parts exploded view should verify it.

Yep - I'm agreeing with you ... I just grabbed the wrong reference! I automatically refer to the PDC  [big grin]  been hanging out for the new model, now my local has a special of the "current" model, with an extra battery and the Protool work light. Grrr! makes the decision to hold out for the new one even harder - much harder when the "current" has a Protool T-Loc and 3 x 3.0Ah batteries and the only thing the new one brings is a slightly different moulded motor housing, light and battery status leds.

I wish that Festool made a mirror image of part number 497022 - the bracket that holds the end of the guide rail when it's swung down onto the table.  This would allow people with joined tables to use a very long rail along the full length of the table, and not need to have 12+ foot tall ceilings.  You could just use both of the brackets to drop the rail down onto.

A cover for the kapex when on the jobsite, perhaps made from the same material as the guide rail cases, or from a showerproof fabric as we do get caught outside whilst cutting in this unpredictable english weather, i dont always have the space to set an easy up .

That's a good idea but you may want to change that to "British" weather.  We get rain here also  ;)

Was thinking about getting some sort of garden furniture cover to see if that would go over the Kapex.  Anyone tried this ?
If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.

Are you going to get it branded? Makes a lot of sense to have a web site and a phone number on it - excellent advertising.

I can image people using them for arket stalls too.

Yeah I am its  cost £100 set up and then £40 per side along the roof and £60 per triangle section on the roof    then its £80  per side   so its expensive! What I wanted PLUS the price of the Gazebo its self it was going to cost me £780 for ONE Gazebo!   AND I said I would buy TWO Gazebos!  one 3mx3m and one 3mx6m  what deal with you give me!  They said they would only charge me for one Delivery charge value £19 

HAHAA NO! Crap deal so I am only buying one now   3x6 and getting some one I know to brand it for me be cheaper!   

I am not putting my number on as I am removing my number from my Van any way.   Its pointless never had a single job from it.

ALL my jobs are from recommendation.   I have had people come up to me asking what my number was even though we where standing right next to my van.......... so people dont really take notice of the number!  But I still wanna get the Gazebo branded cus it looks professional and things like that do stick in peoples minds! If they keep seeing my van and Gazebo around the area it looks good.

yeah you can one of the reasons I want it its just a pull out ready to go.

The weight I like also to help keep it in place on a normal day with out the need to  find weights or water tubs to keep it down

I would like a pillar drill attachment for festool drill. I would attach via centrotec, and have the ability to clamp to the work piece, be used in conjunction with a guide rail or a parallel fence, and accurately positioned at angle up to 45 degrees. Oh an has to be stored in a systainer.
