90 Years - Festool!!
« on: April 30, 2015, 06:17 PM »
Hi
 As some of you know Festool will have been around for 90 years this year [thumbs up] To celebrate this, Systainers will have the 90 yr logo along with some other items from our range. Follow the Festool U.K page link below and keep watching during May [wink]

You will see the 90 Year logo around a lot through the Summer. Also keep a watch on the web link above for the CXS 90 Year edition specials [cool]

Surprised there was no mention of the Domino system on the promotional web page, I would have thought that was more innovative than the TS55 (good though it is)?

Good point - It is mainly to show that Festool has a history and a lot of innovation i guess they could of just shown a guide rail!!
I think the picture of the assembly line is great - very similiar now in fact but more machines.

Frankly, I'm finding it difficult to understand why Festool has not brought the 90th Anniversary celebration stuff to the USA and Canada.  Personally, I feel dissed, as I'm sure my compatriots are as well!  We are a VERY large part of the Festool marketplace, and it's bad enough that there are all the NAINA items that we can't obtain, but this is disturbing...and I am NOT trying to be facetious. [mad]  This is a big deal for Festool, and NA is apparently being totally ignored.

This SHOULD be a worldwide opportunity, and there are a LOT of people, like me, who have taken the Festool System as a standard, and sell the idea to our friends and colleagues.  It is a classic boner not to include us into these kind of celebratory things.

Tired of reading about it.  Have fun Euro's.... once again we in NA are at the end of the line with the Germans. Pffft!

I'd rather hear some justification from GERMANY! It's about time they come on here and explain some of their policies instead of leaving it to Festool USA to try and make excuses for them.

So I stop at the Starbucks on the way home this afternoon, and while I'm waiting in a long line for my frapuccino, I pull out my phone and start checking the FOG to pass the time.  I push randomly at the screen and next thing I know I'm laughing loud enough for everyone to turn around and look at me.  I had ended up on this thread reading Frank's apoplectic diatribe:  "I'm SERIOUS, you guys...Germany MUST account for itself... rant, rant...Warum willst du nicht die 90 Jahre CSX Bohren nach America zu bringen?".   I'm picturing him with fist up in the air going: "we will NOT be ignored--Ich bin ein Festooler!..."

Frank, I truly hope you win one of these limited edition gizmos.  Then on your next high school shop project where you list the tools you used, you can put:  CSX, limited edition, (did I mention it is SIGNED?); and of course it's NAAEIMS (Not Available Anywhere Except In My Shop)

What can I say...I find great humor in the manic obsession some exhibit about this brand.

It's one thing to laugh at an obsession, but it's a whole 'nother level when you say something like that.  [mad]

It does! Thanks!

I want to get a CXS 90 Anniv for myself somehow so that I can gift my soon-to-be eight year old son my current CXS for Xmas!  He's totally into "helping" me with my projects...and has become a Master Screwer!! [big grin]

Sorry, Frank--I meant no real offense.  I don't run my comedic schtick by any focus group.  Perhaps I suffer from some kind of "forum tourette's".  Or perhaps I've been watching too many Bill Burr comedy specials.  Either way, I make fun of my own idiosyncrasies just as often.

I still hope you get your special edition CXS!

So I stop at the Starbucks on the way home this afternoon, . . 

Let's stop right here, you stopped at Starbucks.  [eek]

I cannot understand the NA obsession with this brand of dishwater, or as we might also say 'Mutton dressed up as Lamb'.

Starbucks have failed big time in Australia, and we are a country with a big espresso based Coffee obsession. On average an Australian drinks 4 Cups of Expresso based Coffee per day.

Back to the topic - perhaps Festool could present every FOG member with a shirt celebrating 90 Years.  [smile]

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

It is. You need to log in to MyFestool and there's a link there. Click on the my90Years tab.

[NOTE: Tools from other manufacturers are of course available. As this is the Festool Owners Group, I tend to limit my advice to the tools that Festool sell, and assume that you've come to this site to get advice on Festool tools and because the level of skill and experience of the community here outstrips most you'll find elsewhere. If you *are* interested in tools from other manufacturers, please mention it in your post and also take the time to visit their user forums too.]

Well sure, that's perfectly understandable--How else would one wash down the taste of Vegemite on a crumpet?!?


But yeah, I do agree with you on this:  Festool should do a 90 year T-shirt for every FOG member.  Let's all put our culinary differences aside and unite behind this most excellent idea!

Isn't Vegemite ground up soy beans or something awful like that? Forgive my ignorance, my knowledge of Australia consists of watching Crocodile Dundee when I was a kid.

I'd love to get a CXS for my wife, but she'd probably freak if she saw it cost 2 1/2x as much as a Milwaukee. Maybe I could win one instead.

Oh, and I know I haven't spent thousands on green and gray stuff yet, but I'm always on the lookout for a free t-shirt. :-)
