The complete "Festool experience" makes me feel better and somehow gives me more confidence to do stuff I haven't done before. It also is, to a large part, the fuel to the engine that continuously drives me to make something. Whenever I see/handle my tools, or handle some demo tools at a dealer there's immediately that little guy in my head that says: You should make something/ start on a DIY project.
I enjoy Festool power tools to an extent that is unmatched by any other power tool brand. Kinda like I enjoy my Snap-On hand tools so much more than others. It's not just performance, it's kinda like a mind - but an amazing, warm, fuzzy one.
And then, the tools are topped off by Festool's excellent communication with their customers - even with the smallest one like me.
I contacted Festool (Germany) 3 times so far on different topics, and each time I got a very timely reply - straight to the matter, professional and friendly. And most importantly, not the typical 1st/2nd level support copy paste text blocks stuff but a real reply obviously written by a real human being who knows the tools and brand. I was delighted.
And while I'm at it: It should be a shame for many, many companies that this can be considered something so scarce and out of the ordinary nowadays that I'm mentioning it here.
Last but definitely not least, the results I can achieve with Festool tools and the fact that I try for my results to meet the quality of the tools - which simply makes me work more accurate, but also, as already mentioned, makes me dare more and go further one step at a time.
Using Festool tools also got me dreaming again about the future and what I would like to achieve/make/do - which had gotten very rare in the meantime. At the same time it also got me questioning some life decisions I have made long ago - and proper self-reflection is never a bad thing because it helps to evolve - and evolving is great. Evolving eventually leads not only to feeling better but also to being better.
So yeah, holding a Festool makes me feel better.
