You should have started crying. When everyone asked why you were upset, you could explain the acronym and tell them you're worried that now you won't get to see her grow up. LOL. ;D  [tongue]  [big grin]

when you see a useful tool and ask yourself does festool have a version of it?
when you see a useful tool and its non festool and you go do they make it in green?
when i plan my future work bench it will have green, grey and dark blue with alum extrusions.
When youre feeling depressed just treat yourself to a systainer even if its a mini systainer its ok.

Squaring of Rails and fences on the MFT
Rigidity of the MFT
Funny noises when you use the TS55 for the first time

Too much time when you know more about festool than your dealer does. And just as much as the guy who has 30k in festool's.

Yet you have a Cxs/carvex and some systainers.

That's because emoticons in green are generally associated with Mr. Yuk.  Just can't see the association with Festool in this one.

When you take a delivery, and leave it in the porch, until you can stow it in the shop unnoticed! By guess who?

Hookie   
It started with a : TS 55 REBQ-Plus-FS
Then parallel guides.... Extra tracks. Then a Domino 500! Now a Midi extractor. Next an MFT, Domino XL,  Dominos and cutters. Router, OF 1400 added to the armoury... Just bought my 'Domiplate'.. The LR 32 jig and track. And finally, A TS 75 Track saw, sans track. My shop is turning very green and black.
