Just for Fun
Thought I would start a thread of Festool Selfys.
Please remember to be safe.We don't want to see accidents in the making.

Tom
Hi Tom.

It's a photograph taken of yourself by yourself (or by another person in the photograph) using a tablet or smartphone device. In my example my neighbour held his iPhone at arms length.

However for the purposes of this thread, any photograph of you using a Festool is certainly OK.

And thank you Scott for being the first.   [smile]

Ok, gotta admit, I am starting to wonder if the criteria of a selfie USING your Festools was too stringent.

How about maybe a picture of members just in the same room with their favorite Festools?

Such a simple thread is choking on paralysis by analysis.

Post them up, tool geeks!

MacGyver felt left out.  He did have a Systainer as a first bed.  He did go thru the whole Fogtainer project as inspector and protector.  And he has spent a ton of time hearing about the FOG and he has been studying for years to become a Moderator.  Case in point.

More like two old . . . . s  let loose in a Festool Lab!   [eek] [big grin]


Thank you all for your comments and in particular, appreciation to Scott, Peter, JmbFestool,  kristherookie, tjbwni, SittingElf, Alkaline and RJNeal,  for your selfies.


To date we have seen a master painter/finisher at work, a young gun professional letting off steam in his superb self built workshop, one version of an ultimate Festool garage workshop, mastering the complex mitres of an old school house, a hand that Festool should hire for modelling work, the contemplation of yet another masterpiece,  a view from Festool Heaven, and an adorable dog that I am sure gives much pleasure and love to his master, and . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . .    So keep them coming Foggers.

As you can see in the range so far, and as Scott  implied you don't have to over think this.    [smile]

Scott, I have just spent the last 10 minutes looking at my Kapex, from the left, the right, from behind and from the front, I even turned it upside down to take a look and I even stood on some step ladders to look down on it and I still think it looks just like any other chop saw and definitely not pretty nice looking. Penelope Cruz now she is what I call pretty nice looking.

Quick question, why do you have it hooked up to a vacuum when your outside in the garden :-\

We need a ginormous DC unit here in Nigeria right now.  It's Harmatan season, when the wind shifts out of the North and brings what seems like the entire Sahara desert down to visit.  All of our throats are raw, and visibility is so low we are having multiple days that we can't even fly.  It's like a fog, only with powder-fine sand and extreme low humidity. You can feel the dust in the air.  Nasty stuff!! [mad]

Wonder if Festool could step up from the CT48 unit to around CD48,000,000,000! [big grin]

Oh well... only 13 days before I escape back to Florida for six-weeks.  [tongue]
Cheers,
Frank

UPDATE:  Took these two pictures from the hangar a few minutes ago. This can last for DAYS at a time. No flying....
Visibility = 1/4 mile.  Temp= 84F  Humidity= 39%  UGH!!

You evidently are not the type of painter I hate.  The one who go out onto a well manicured lawn to wash their brushes (especially the oil paints), or try to hide their tossed material into the bushes.  I know how to bring back a burn spot on a lawn.  When i know a large paint job is happening, i carry some gypsum (agricultural) in my truck as a "just in case".  When i had lots of help, i always carried a small bag in case an operator ran out of gas in middle of a lawn and spilled while refilling the tank. (Threats of death or dismemberment never worked) A big blob of goop in a shrub bed never gets discovered while I'm pruning until i have tracked all over a blacktop driveway.  When that happens, i get to thinking i should carry a great big club instead of gypsum.

A great fashion shot (beautiful dog with hat in the Scotland wilds), another great workshop (can never have enough  router bitts! ) and Kapex worshiping both in the shop and in the wilds.

Frank, could we have a shot of you as the pilot with dust and sweat lines streaking down his face and heroically facing the dust storm; (but wearing his Festool cap)?  [smile] If you are busy don't sweat on it!!  [big grin]

To be serious, however, which aircraft is your main helicopter or do you share them around?

Thank you all again to those who have contributed. If you have'nt posted please don't be bashful, and Shane has made it even easier.
