That's the better idea. Other brands can do it, why not Festool.

I would like to see a new fence for the DF 500 that has multiple stops like the 700 has. If they offered a new fence separately I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Isn't that the one the 500 used to have?

I think an serious upgrade kit for the DF500 would be an awesome offering. If Festool doesn't I'm sure Seneca will !

When you say "fence" do you really mean the indexing pins?  Or are you truly talking about the detent indexing to adjust the 0 - 90 deg setting?

Like has been said many times now, an 18v impact driver. I really hope the rep in my area is right about his "hinting". There are few times I need an impact for what I do as the PDC is so power, but it would be nice in those rare cases.

I'd really be after additional indexing pins, but when I posted I was thinking about ease of retrofit. Would be far easier to swap out the entire fence/base assembly to a new unit.

Tweaks to LR32 to add two holes for mounting the Domino, and put a grove pointing toward the rail > on the centering hole so you can use it to mark with would be nice.   Both of these should be simple changes to the metal punches in the manufacturing stage for the router base plate in the LR 32 system.

An automatic tool to vacuum smart switch. Vacuum switch recognises which tool and switches on automatically with the tool and also automatically adjusts to the appropriate suction level. Suction level could still have manual override.

Would be great when up ladders etc, or when you have set up a tool such as a domino and as I recently did, after fine tuning on the pencil line, you realise the vac is still on Manual!  [eek] [and not for the first time either!]

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

I got into the habit of using auto as my off position. I think you meant your DE was in off as opposed to manual as it would be running in manual. For me, off has no value, only as a frustration. When I am finished using manual I switch to auto and it will be ready to go when I hook up to a tool. If I am going to use it manually again I just swing back through manual and then back to auto. In short, auto becomes my off.

Can't help you on the suction level unless you come up with a bypass valve at the hose end like there is on the plastic cleaning set.

Broken record here: I don't want a multifunction driver. I already have a Quadrive. I just want an 18v impact driver. Onboard shadowless LED illumination would be a bonus.

Given that new products show up on the international site well ahead of the US site, it looks like it's gonna be a long, miserable wait.

Not a new tool, but I wish Festool would reintroduce the VS 600 joining system.
I missed out getting one several years ago and would really like to have it.

You could still source one from another market .. they still have them here in Oz ..

Honestly though, the Leigh jigs offer so much more sophistication. The Festool VS600 is only really good for the basics!

I don't think anyone's mentioned it on this thread yet  ;) but I would like them to make an 18 volt impact screwdriver, that would make the rest of their 18 volt range a far more viable prospect.

Not fussed about centrotec, just made the darn rattle gun already.

Maybe take a few ideas off De-Walt regarding the three LEDs on the front of theirs so the bit doesn't cast a daft shadow and it doesn't have to be the best thing in the whole wide world, just good enough.

If I'm being fussy, make it quite short and brushless but really, rattle guns aren't rocket science are they? Just do it.

Oh and a T-Loc site radio, with attic lid LED lights combined with being a mains powered* charger for the batteries.
Chuck in a phone charger, DAB,FM radio, USB memory stick and Bluetooth and Roberts yer mothers brother.

Or just do the bloody rattle gun, like every site worker wants.

Ta muchly.

*Although technically being a UK site worker I would like it in 110 volts with the yellow plug.

Thanks Kev
I think it has something to do with having the complete system, and is to a lesser extent a utilitarian tool. But you are right, the Leigh jig is more versatile.  I will leave it here so as not to clutter up the thread.

It would be really nice if each of the dust extraction units (at least CTL-SYS and the mobile units) also had 2 x USB ports in them for charging of mobile phones and other similar equipment.

Perhaps this might not be too much to engineer into the product, perhaps it is... just a thought! :)
