Well I found this
while thinking about ordering from this site. Just read the first post.
I have no idea if it is the world record holder but regardless it is testament to what quality really is. There too much of this "tools and machines braking a day after the warranty expires" nonsense so I am glad that there are companies that still do good work.
Oh and if by chance the person who posted that is on here please speak up. I want to know that sanders' story!
Anyone else have any impressive Festool longevity stories?
