I wish Festool dust extractors had 3-stage bag condition indicators; green - bag OK, yellow - bag nearly full, red - change bag now.  Alternatively, it would be good if a full bag shut down the DE and killed power to the tool receptacle, preferably with a bag full LED.

I've been injected with it, it's called "arrogance of Festool Australia".

It's offered free of charge ... nothing else they offer is discounted, free or even current!!

@Sparktrician I think that's what an M class machine does,

The problem is that I have two "F-class" machines...   [big grin]

Then what? How would it work? For situations where you can't lay the two work pieces together?

I just saw the new tapered hose at my local festool dealer today.  It's really nice, I love the sleeve that holds the power cable so it's one unit.  Could you please make the sleeve available alone, I really don't need another hose, especially for the $250 price tag, but I could really use the sleeve.  I also saw the new ETS sanders, I really like the ergonomics of the new machines!  Could you make an RO in the same format?

I wish Festool made a little button that when pressed would make certain anti FOG people disappear for ever. I have just been drawn into "The Festool-is-too-expensive-i-own-something-else-group.com" thread.

now, now, @Peter Parfitt -- don't be an anti-"anti-FOG" kind of guy!  The anti-FOGers must serve their useful purpose, surely.  As you must well know, there are people on here, like yourself, that are instructive in showing others "what to do";  and then  there are others who are just as instructive in showing us "what not-to-do".  I learn either way...

I sense you're probably more annoyed with yourself for being drawn into the ever-alluring siren song of negativity.  I've been there dude.  Lash yourself to the mast and ride it out...

Keep up the good work man!

How dare you, Sir-- I find your remark reprehensible and totally devoid of merit!

(See what I did there?  I got my humor across just fine without the little yellow thingies cluttering the brilliant prose--I guess I'm just gifted that way...)

I don't know about teo...but it registered with me. Actually, your reply was extremely humorous and I was going to commend you on it but I didn't want to suck up all the bandwidth and have some local fogger furious.

Actually teo is probably still cracking up from your reply and that's the reason he hasn't rejoined the conversation.

I once did a "Good day Sir, I said Good Day!" on a forum and it was lost in translation, in Britain no less. Stupid Brits.

I love my RO90, but was thinking an ETS90 would be cool.  It would be a finish sander similar to the ETS125/150.  Would be handy for sanding smaller/thinner pieces and would be easier to keep flat in some situations (like moulding after it is installed on the wall).

An IMPACT!

As a remodel contractor I'm constantly reaching for my Panasonic impact. I love my green and would gladly  switch to the Festool cordless line, but without an impact it isn't practical.

With 5 grandsons I totally agree. I believe that every child, girl or boy, should be encouraged to be practical. They may go off into smart professions and be doctors or whatever but at least they can put up a shelf, change a bulb or assemble some Ikea kit.
