Might have been mentioned already...

... When you buy accessories in anticipation of/before a future Festool tool purchase...

(Thinking CMS TS75 module....)

Hmm...guilty of this as well. Search on Carvex and WOW.

Wow haven't you got an installers centrotec kit and no festool drill yet  [unsure]

Guilty again - but at least in the case of the Centrotec kit I use the adaptor with my M12 drills and impacts.

I also think that if you come to this site to look for creative ways to tell the wifey that the tools have been in your shop for a while!  I personally have a great wife who understands. But I do get a kick out of threads where people don't have it so lucky!!

Keep em coming!!

Define 'explored'? This is bordering on sacrilege!  [scared]

That's what I feared. Not opened yet? How is that even possible?

Anything I get that says Festool on it or has Festool inside 'self-opens' on delivery!

... You take regular contributors advice at face value for other kit as well as Festools. (Cough Sonos)

... You can recite the differences between the five top Festool sanders and the relative merits of each without thinking. (RO90, RO150, ETS125, ETS150/3, DTS)

... You know that the CMS-OF unit in NA comes with the OF2200 rings and why you aren't allowed to use it in NA.

... You've purchased at least two Festools due to either Paul-Marcel's or Peter Parfitts videos. (Since they are available on facetube this could be debatable, I guess.)

... You have pimped you MFT/3 to full table saw / high precision router station with an Incra LS Supersystem & a Precision plate based on war storied told here.

...You have a strong need to paint all tool storage units sweet pea green.

...You know instantly what people are talking about when words like 'holy', 'holey' or 'holyrail' are used.

Sorry Reiska  [big grin] How are you getting on with the Sonos

Just fine Mick, thanks for asking ;-)

Rocking away with the complimentary 6 month subscription to Google Play Music and planning on getting another speaker in my sons room and a third one in our bedroom and possibly a 5 for the livingroom and dedicate the 1 I have for backyard use... Very slippery slope there... Just waiting for next bonus/overtime spree or similar to happen to fund any of it.

Took delivery of my Grrippers and Glubots and took them for a test drive yesterday when I installed new mozzie netting on our library door - good stuff there too.

Good (and expensive) advice on this forum [big grin]

Blasphemy!!! You should be hoisted on your own petard - whatever that is?

 [big grin]

If you don't get them opened and some pictures taken and posted, we might have to organize an intervention! It's OK if you don't use them right away, but you better at least be ADMIRING them!
