SysPlaner
« on: August 19, 2010, 01:28 PM »
Following on from Shane's "I wish Festool made a...." thread, I noticed that many members have mentioned a lunchbox planer.

I've thought of this in the past too, and even gone so far as to draw one in SketchUp. So, I'd like to present the SysPlaner....

25169-0

Based on a Sys5, it would sit atop your vac, has a plug-it on the side, a large connection for a 50mm hose, and opens front and back:

25171-1

25173-2

Depth adjustment could be by a winder inside the lid, or better still, motorised with up/down buttons & a digital readout on the front!

What do you all think? Would you buy one? [big grin]

Alternatively, now that we've ordered our FOGtainers, how about a FOGplaner? I'm sure with his talents, Peter could have it refined, designed, prototyped, tested, built, shipped, UL approved, AND in the shops by Christmas... [thumbs up] [thumbs up] [thumbs up]

PS - I'm claiming "SysPlaner" and "FOGplaner" as mine. If Festool want to use them, I want a cut [big grin]

PS - you've provided a little intra-office fun for the day as we send around the renderings to fellow employees claiming that this is a prototype, making it look like it's from the Festool Germany R&D team.  Fun times!  [big grin]

Cool!

So, what was the response then?

Nice imagination! Well thought out.  You should get a job on the Festool R&D team.

I wish! I think that'd be my perfect job, apart from having to relocate to Germany. I don't think Festool UK do much designing...

Well thought out idea, Johnny... I have a lunchbox already, but if this became a reality and had a helical head, I might replace my lunchbox!

I think that's appropriate.  I should say a cut of 1/32" off the top and 3/64" off the bottom..... ;D

Cool idea & nice work, but it would probably cost 3000.00 GBP. I would probably still buy one though  [crying]
If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.

awesome job jonny!

this is exactly what i was thinking of when i filled in shanes wish list yesterday.

the festool thicknesser could come with standard blades or have the option of the more expensive helical head with spiral cutters.

i would buy the helical head in a heartbeat.

come on festool, make it happen!!!

What makes the discussion so great, is the visual aid jonny created. Make is real easy to get behind the product.

That is really awesome.  Nice renderings.

This immediately made me think 'baby drum sander' also.  Chalk 'em both up.

well, if we are talking about money and festool.
lets be realistic here.
theres no way i would waste 3000 pounds on a festool lunch box thicknesser.

i paid AU 2500 dollars for my cms-ts75 table saw.
i still have to fork out another 500 dollars just to buy the rip fence.

i would be willing to pay AU 2000 dollars for the lunchbox thicknesser.
anymore than that and i will stick with the dewalt or makita models.

That gives me an idea.  Some should  start an aftermarket accessories company for systainers complete with custom inserts, modifications and built in power tools.
