I would gladly allow the CT SYS to be 3" taller if it has a retractable CORD AND HOSE.

From the design it appears I could make a retractable cord and add nothing to the size, this should of been the design from the start.

Again, I would gladly allow the unit to be  3" taller if they could find a way to make the hose retractable, heck maybe even 6" because as it is that space is used with the hose and cord flopping around on top anyhow because I don't have time to  wrap it up neatly. I just let cord and hose sit on top any old way.

The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.

Granat sandpaper for the DTS 400 in grits > 400.  Does anyone know if any third parties make such a thing?  Klingspor maybe?

In lieu of a full line of small tools running off the CXS/TXS batteries, how about just a flashlight? Also, a redesigned systainer insert so you can store it with your drill.

Please and thank you.

Re: Fill in the blank: I wish Festool made a Dado Track Saw

My idea is simple.  Make a circular saw that is specifically designed to cut dados and would ride on a track.  The saw could be equipped with a 6" Fraud Dial A Dado type blade and would only have to cut up to an inch deep.  The dado track saw would be used to cut perfect dados anywhere and to any length your track will allow.  Having a dial a dado type blade would allow the perfect fit to any thickness material or plywood.  Yes a router can be used to cut dados and I have used that process but a circular blade that scores the veneer with the outer teeth would leave a cleaner cut and would cut faster and could be completed in one pass.  Yes router bits come in undersized plywood thickness but they are never perfect. And yes you can make two passes with a smaller router bit and a jig.  I'm just saying that a track saw equipped with a blade make specifically for cutting dados would be really really cool!
Thoughts?

The HK85 will do your dados with the optional groove cutter.

Not a lot of options for decent belt sanders, so I am with you conceptually.
There is always the 110v->230v transformer... and then you use a Euro version.

Also, I wish that the CMS had aluminum router rings held in place with magnets.

I am not an expert on plastics, but a 'sys-chem'...

A systainer, and set of bottles to fit inside, made of plastic to resist all heavy chemicals eg metho, turps, thinners, brake cleaner and the like! Any spilling could be contained.

If they make a belt sander include a frame like the one on the DeWalt DW433 which is great for
controlling the aggressiveness of a belt sander and helps to ensure a flat surface.

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.

I wish my new Festool Syslight Duo had a small bracket with a cylinder to fit the light that I could mount to the wall (or shelf) of my garage. I have the tripod but I'd rather store the light on a permanent mount so I can use it and leave the tripod folded up and stored away. I suppose that I could build something but it would be so much better if it was an accessory. Ive seen some online reviewers mounting their lights in a way that is clearly in conflict with the instruction manual warnings. Thanks for considering my request...

Seeing dado stacks aren't exactly legal in most parts of Europe, will never happen from any Euro tool company. Not to mention the inertia of a dado stack is somewhat higher than a normal blade, I wouldn't want a hand held version in the event of kickback

You mean the HK85 will be discontinued and not be available in Europe? I was hoping it would appear in the USA.

HK85 doesn't take a standard dado blade.  It will only work with Festools grooving unit.

And it's not a big seller.

That's a shame since there is nothing like that here. I don't care if it's a grooving unit or a dado blade as long as it can cut a dado or rabbit while guided by a track. Actually I like the grooving unit better than a dado setup.

It's pretty much just a proprietary dado balde in a housing that couples to the saw.

If you really want one, you'll need to look into importing it. Chances are slim to none that FT brings it stateside.

BTW, there is no 110v version available.

That does not stop people from complaining.
We all know that anyone can get the tool imported in 230v and use a transformer... But many hold onto a fairy tail belief that somehow a limited number of 110v tools will get the UL approval process to make sense. That will not happen.

Mafell sells their 120V 2200W KSP85 in the US through an authorized dealer. So, either UL approval is a) optional, or b) not that difficult to get. Regardless, it's a marketing decision which has little to do with the UL.

UL approval is not difficult to obtain.   

It is costly.

And when amortized over a product that has little sales potential it becomes a non - starter.
