ADDICTION
« on: November 29, 2012, 07:23 PM »
Not too long ago  somewhere I came across a picture of a guy with his MFT full of his Festools. I thought that was a great idea to have a pic taken with me and my Festools but never thought I would find the time or opportunity to put together such a photo, well guess what happened this morning......

do you have employees or something? why so many festool drills?
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Even though I have a lot of the same items you have, I still had to wipe off the drool on my keyboard.  [big grin]

Cool pic!  I'm thinking I should do something like this for my Christmas cards this year......

It could read something like  "Happy Holidays from Dawn, Eric and the family"

Dawn is my wife's name....though she may not want to be associated with the card  [wink].

I have one guy. The csx's  are in my truck pretty much full time. The 12's are for the shop and find it VERY convenient for production. :-) and I am here admitting to my ADDICTION

Nice !   4:20 !   I get it.   Reminds me of some college days. [scared]


Do you use your utility knife?   I'm not sure I like the fact that the blade retracts on it's own. I'm still trying to get use to it.

Please be aware that I, as a member, have nominated the third image as one to appear on the FOG calendar.  This has been done without the permission of the OP and is subject to his approval.  Some slight enhancements were made.  You may see the image at The First Nomination for the FOG Calendar

Start looking for other images!

Along with the csx drills there are 9 systainers that that are filled with the appropriate tools and 6 that are filled with non Festools for ease of transportation that ride in the box truck. I fabricated 2 large cases with drawers for the transportation of these along with job specific tools. The cases have the ability to hold a total of 32 systainers 8@1,8@2,8@3,8@4
And it would mess up the picture if I put my RED milwaukees in there!!!
