Is it time to do another Fogtainer type project?
« on: October 05, 2013, 07:58 PM »
While celebrating my dog MacGyver's third anniversary of coming to live with us last weekend it came to me that it has been three years basically since we did the Fogtainers.

I certainly have had some ideas since then, BUT the general consensus of buyers of the first batch was that in order to make these and future offerings special there should not be a regular rotation or time for offerings.

So the questions to all of you: Yes or No?

I am not going to divulge what I have been thinking about so don't bother asking.  Just wondering if it is too soon or if there might be an anticipated interest.

What I would really like is a FOG Toolie.  We could contact Wiha and ask them to produce a special run PocketStar for us that has all the Festool Toolie wrenches.   [big grin]

I am in support of a toolie as well. I still want a fogtainer.

If doing a toolie, I would like a fold out metric ruler.

Peter,

  Seeing how I missed the last run of Fogtainers I would definitely be interested in a couple. 

Or interested in anything you  have up your sleeve  [big grin]

Since my post in the classified section a few months back went unanswered  [sad].  I know I missed the boat the last go round.....I'm not missing this one if you decide to make them available.

I like the Toolie idea; add the tools necessary for the stein, though.  Oh and the hex wrench for the Carvex.  Bonus points if the stein 'tool' can sit 5mm thick on the workbench so you could pop it under the OF-1400 sitting on the rail and help with adjusting the foot.  The stein tool shouldn't be in use with the OF-1400 anyway.

And if something toolie'ish would be in the works could we make it a version 2 straight away? i.e. find Wiha or someone to actually have the tools *lock* when extended like my Leatherman's blades. I find the toolie more or less useless with the screwdrivers & hex keys wobbling this way and that since it doesn't lock in place  [sad]

Hey Peter,
I would love to have some Tloc Fogtainers  [thumbs up] I really hope this happens. If there is anything that I could do to help move this project along, please let me know. I wish Festool USA/FOG would help on this project, it would sort of help ease the pain of all the NAINA products that we want/need  [laughing]

Anyway, I will be impatiently hopping and waiting  [drooling]

I admit that I am watching what the poll at the top of this thread indicates.  We have had tremendous growth here since the last one so....

Thanks for your bump.

I voted NO because I (selfishly) want to keep the three Fogtainers that I purchased to be unique.  But I see that I am in a very small minority.

Frank,

I totally understand that and appreciate your candor.  That is exactly why I asked.

You will always have the originals, and were part of an exciting project in which so many here participated either thru purchasing, or commenting, or both.  We can't take that away.

 They'd still be unique being Classics as opposed to T-Locs. That would also be an instant identifier between  first and second generation FOGtainer.

Yes, it will be possible to identify them but they won't be as unique as I would like them to be.  Oh well, I know that this is a lost cause.

Frank,  would it be fair to deny newer members a chance to own something that is still unique to the F.O.G.  ( Personally I probably won't buy one ) . You were lucky enough to be a member at the first offering , but to deny new members would be like stopping anyone else joining the forum because it is not as exclusive as it was in its infancy

  P.s. Don't get me wrong its just my opinion of the desire of newer members to join what is still a fairly elite group .
