Headline "Festool Owners Demand Release of Tools"
« on: August 18, 2007, 07:48 PM »
Lebanon, IN

There was shock at Festool's USA Headquarters today as a large band of Festool owners braved the heat to protest the German powertool maker for it's unfair and excruciatingly slow release of new tools to its North American Market. Signs bearing "KAPEX NOW", "Bring on the Plug-it Adapters", and "We want Belt Sanders" were amoung the few signs at the protest. Chants from the crowd could be clearly heard from the fourth floor office of Christian O. "We're doing the best we can, but we can't please these people. They're addicts and need treatment not more tools. We have started a new department that addresses just this issue of Festool Fanatasism or FF as we call it." As we returned to the protest it was getting clearer that if Festool employees did not do something this non-violent protest could turn...Four Festool eployees had to hand out T-shirts and Hats bearing the Festool logo to appease the crowd.

As for the release of the next fix who knows.

Yep, it was rugged there for awhile.  Got kinda ugly when the shirts and hats were being passed around -- tried for one of the hats, but there was simply too much pushing and shoving.  Maybe I'll have another try at next month's rally.
Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

Uh, Larry...   I don't think they meant to give that Domino away.

Sounds Like a Bunch Of Festool Junkies to me.  That type of behavior resembles me in my younger days on the road following the Grateful Dead.

Fun Post!

UHHHH, Yup...... I am fairly certain I did that ???
