If all UK members just say a Hello/Hi  then when a NEW UK member says Hello it will pop in your new replies making you aware of a new GB crew! + If I update this posts I can make a comment so it will pop up in your New Replies also!

Hope this will help for some future organised events OR trying to get some tools or other items from the USA across the pond in quantity.

No Festool at the NEC again :(    Mafell are at the NEC though.

Festool always seem to be represented by other companies  like bunny bolts.  Cus not sure when but Bunny bolts was their last time with Festool and Protool Tools thats when I bought the Protool Sword from the NEC from bunny bolts.

Been the last few times! I just stare at the machinery I cant afford  [crying]

[NOTE: Tools from other manufacturers are of course available. As this is the Festool Owners Group, I tend to limit my advice to the tools that Festool sell, and assume that you've come to this site to get advice on Festool tools and because the level of skill and experience of the community here outstrips most you'll find elsewhere. If you *are* interested in tools from other manufacturers, please mention it in your post and also take the time to visit their user forums too.]

Nah nothing to write home about. 

Just to good a opportunity to turn down.

Besides they need a decent beer taster tester there. Im up for the job..


Do you get British beer in America ? . I thought you all drank coloured water  [tongue] [smile]

Actually we got some english/irish pubs here that sell English beer on tap. My fav is New Castle and Guinness though Carlsberg is right up there

Last time I went to the USA your beer selection was pretty limited Compared to beer in Europe.

We have different brands here. Nothing like what you guys get. We do have some english/ irish pubs that sell a variety of UK beer. But believe me. I will be a authority by the time my 3 years over there is over :>D

Which one of you Wankers   [big grin] live in N. England?


Good to see you have a firm grip of the language. :-)

I thought you were going to retire to Nevada?

So did I. I even forgot I applied for this job. It  came out of nowhere.


 I forgot all about even applying for it.

I must of applied when I was deployed in AFG.

I told them yea Id take the job but I need to know before Apr1 cuz Im due to retire.

When I got the first phone call (13 Mar) asking if I was still interested I told the guy  that they would have to make their decision before then so I can pull back my retirement. Then monday I get a email asking If I would accept a tentative job in huntingdon England. I told the family, I  thought about it and accepted it.

My 16 y.o. daughter (calm down boys I got a big bat I carry) has been talking about wanting to go there for 2 or 3 years, my son who is a excellent (brilliant in english terms) football player (soccer) has been wanting to go there and try his luck. His trainer here has connections there and will try to get him a look at.
So I took everything in consideration and accepted it.


I think I got a handle on the language, lets see

"Hey Keep how about a  effin pint over here and one for me new mate"

"Bullocks the bloody reds lost to that russian team again "chelsinski"

"Bloody Ref screwed us on that call, effin wanker, go back to the coca cola league ya piker

So I think Im coming right along with my communications skills , [big grin]

Im sure they will get fine tuned after I get to know the guys at the local pub, lumber yard and tool store.

Seriously my only concern is shop space. Im going to be looking for a garage , preferably a 2 car.

Im going to sell my stationary tools to a good friend of mine and take my festools with my. Im guess I would not need a table saw, jointer, big router table etc anymore. I havent used mine since I started using the festool system. I am going to get the CMS (one with all the attachments ) and the OF2200 here before I go  and ship them over.

I can pick up the centering ring for it there along with the TS55 / jig saw belt sander and module there. Ive been considering getting the TS75 module and leave it in the module just in case I have to cut some thicker wood.

But to be honest, my wood working will be playing second fiddle to traveling and seeing the country. I think its a excellent opportunity for my kids and wife, to see all that history there. We are so deeply tied with the UK in our history and they will never have a chance to get over there in there entire lives to actually send time enjoying the country and culture. Plus being so close to Scottand, Ireland, Wales , Germany, France, Austria, Chech Republic etc. Im really excited about it.
I havent been there since the 70s. Germany was divided, I looked over the wall into East Berlin, Now we can go visit it.

Im hopeing nothing happens to screw this up. Its like a dream to me.

Id wait a little bit before you decide to this side of the pond. Things are starting to turn around, barely. But there are a lot of things happening that may throw the economy back i the dumpster.
We alway like nice decent people to come here .

Looking at a CXS though I don't really need one and a TS55R though I have no idea how to use it to anything like its abilities !

I thought I could use this topic to see if some one might have an answer!    I know Festool Should answer his question!  Just be nice if some one else was able to answer it

Hopefully, or maybe, someone from Festool UK will learn of this post and get in touch with him.  If he hasn't gotten in touch with them directly he should.  I haven't followed the link to see what happened, I just saw his question in that other thread and hoped it was an easy answer for a UK user.

Been a Festool user for the past few years and have recently started to add more green to my collection (mostly due to the £50 off vouchers doing the rounds).

Have any uk members had any luck with running a kapex 110v on a generator

after speaking to a guy at festool he said it should run on a genny if my ts55 does, if not i could return it
so i have tried it and it does not run but i do like the saw so would like to keep it if i can find a genny it will run on

If you have a genny it will run on can you post the make and model

mine is a honda eg1900 and as said that will not run it

Well the festool guy needs to go back to a festool training class!

Saying if the TS55 will run the kapax should is rubbish!

I had same problem on a job I turned up to find my kapex wouldn't run.  I spent 1hour messin about no luck.  Yet my TS55?worked.     Luckily my mate had his dewalt chop saw and left it for me to use while he went on another job.


You need a generator with a clean sine I think.  The kapex is really picky doesn't like dirty electricity

Is this the best thread to ask a sort of UK specific question? I'll ask it anyway and maybe someone can move it if it's the wrong place.

Has anyone successfully used any other vac attachments (specifically Henry as they're cheap as chips on eBay) on a Festool hose? I'm weighing up buying just a 36mm Festool hose as I need one, or paying the extra and getting the tradesman's cleaning set which includes the 36mm hose and various attachments. This would mean chucking away my large collection of siemens, henry, karcher attachments that I have been using on various incarnations of - you guessed it - siemens, henry & karcher vacs over the years.

I didn't need the angled wand bit on my last vac as it was built into the hose, but I'd be looking to get a henry one as they're metal and cheap and try to ram it into the 36mm somehow.

Ta in advance.

I've also just ordered a couple of these to get my bosch sander and chop saw to fit the hose perfectly by the way. http://www.espares.co.uk/product/es538504/karcher-vacuum-tool-adaptor-sleeve?ApplianceTypeId=1086&ManufacturerId=877 - just cut it at the stop you want to use and as it's rubber it fits perfectly. The large end pops straight over the end of the 27mm hose - not sure about the 36 yet as I don't have it.

UPDATE: I've started a new thread on the subject in case it's not a UK specific thing.

Thanks DaveJ, I believe the will  be a new Festool dealer on the wirral soon, have you heard anything? where do you get your blades and bits from?

Not heard about a new dealer . I usually go to MBS  , occasionally go to Axminster if im heading off that way ( cant beat a good drool  [smile] ) . Tried grahams in Chester but it was full price on everything.
I dont mind growing old but i refuse to grow up

nothing but love here bud.

I learned the term jobsworth first hand when we first got here.

ran into a real one.

found a nice house to rent.

cant wait for my stuff to get here so I can set up shop and buy some of those NAINA items.  Got permission from the new landlady to add a couple of cabinets and got her OK to build some for the garage shop to.

So ill be able to enjoy my new(to me) shop. I do have to add some circuits and lighting, she is good with that as well.

Ron - I don't believe it, changing your name just because you are here.

Actually it makes sense for loads of people....

In the UK it costs a small fortune to get a personalised number plate for the car. But, for just £25 you can change your name by deed poll. So, keep the random registration that came with the car and change your name to match it.

We need more people from the UK to declare that they exist rather than just lurking in the background. That is the only way that Festool UK can be persuaded to see the FOG as a viable entity and a useful conduit to the UK tool owning fraternity.

Come on, do it now, tell us who you are - this might, one day, mean that there will be competitions sponsored by Festool UK.

I would encourage someone to start a similar thread for Europe as a whole, for Australia and New Zealand and perhaps a ROW one as well.

But for now, if you are a UK person and have not put your head above the keyboard then summon up the courage to out yourself (in the Festool sense) now.

Hi Everyone,

I'm from the South East and was a lurker here for quite a while before using the knowledge I gained to tart making my first Festool purchases. Started with a TS55 and have recently added the Kapex 120 with UG kit, Rotex 90, CMS with OF1400, Domino 500 and a Midi Vacuum.  With a £50 voucher just arrived I'm on the prowl for a new addition.

Hi Kevin and Jools  welcome!

I'm not to sure what the videos need to be.   

I think demonstrating and explaining the best features of a festool tool you like the most.......

So basically making some one wanting to buy the tools after they watched your video.

Hi Peter,

Hi Rusty,

I think that you have done it already - you have joined in and are visible. We need as many UK Festool owners to become active or at least visible here on the FOG.

Also, please tell your friends and workmates who are also Festool owners how valuable the FOG has become thanks to the participation of so many enthusiastic members, particularly in North America, and the fantastic efforts of the moderators.

FOG membership has increased my knowledge and my confidence using my Festool kit and I have been helped out time and again by input from others.

Well done JMBFestool for looking after this thread.

It's our dry sense of humour, it's NAINA, so we keep our stiff upper lips buried under our bowler hats whilst we drink our Pimms - or so they think. Me? I like a nice Belgian beer...how very British.

I have learnt SO MUCH from this forum, and given I've had Festool gear for years now (well, a TS55), it's funny how little I knew. I have more gear now, and yes, I have a problem.

Fortunately for me, being 15 miles away I am fortunate not to of inherited the accent. Although I do get a lot of comments saying that I sound posh.

One really doesn't understand that comment when I receive it however  [big grin]

Accents should always be cherished however, as it would be a boring world if we all sounded the same.

Hi - thought I'd say hello from sunny Devon - near Tavistock.

Woodworking has been a bit neglected for a while with a new business and young family, but enjoying getting back into it and also enjoying choosing my next Festool purchase!

I'm mainly hobby but got into Festool building furniture and fitting out my retail shop. Helped me justify the purchases - and also dust was a concern - especially once the shop fitted out.

Heres a pretty Cool article I found

http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/editors-blog/table-saw-safety-why-the-british-think-were-crazy

I found it informative as I was having issues with timber binding when I was ripping it using the CMS/CS 50 fence. I had the fence set up the way we do in the states.

Anyway Im going to give  attaching the sliding fence that came with the CMS router module on the CS 50 fence a try.

The reason is I got the sliding fence off the CS 70 and its way long to do this safely

Now I realize that this fence system is set up for the euro way.

Duh huh?

Im posting this here b/c its more of a euro UK thing then a N/A thing

What?? [eek]


It just discusses some of the differences we have in table saw fences.

I had some issues that it answered and confirmed by festool Uk. Im guessing what got yas all riled up was this quote

>>While it’s easy to poke fun at the British for their quaint use of our language, their fondness for strange-flavored potato chips  and their inability to make a car that doesn’t leak oil, it’s hard to argue with their approach to table saw safety.<<


The way I read it , it complements you guys.

Well we do speak a different English. But I thought it was a tongue in cheek comment,

tongue in cheek means making a joke/ being funny.

So, give them a like!

Welcome Mark.......bmw fan by any chance ? or does the E30 stand for something else

BMW E30 Fan!

Although the E30 touring on my drive hasn't moved for over 3 years...

Is it a Green 530 D touring?

Peter

Doubt it Peter, the E30 is a 3 series not 5

Yes, I keep forgetting my E numbers. I think I must have had an E39 - whatever it was it was a 530D and the most wonderful car that I have ever owned. It was green too - a Festool car!

Sorry I'm another 20k down after just buying some felder machinery which will hopefully be arriving tomoro or Friday.  

I sorted out a biomass boiler system from a company for my parents which was 20k
Which hasn't turned out very well. :( Hence why I'm keeping quiet about workshop... Because the company liquidated after my parents paid £9k deposit.   Not sure what's going to happen yet.   Just seems one thing gets sorted with the workshop another problem pops up.

Hi Ant, welcome to the FOG.

Looks like you've picked up the popular Kapex/UG/Midi combo - you'll love it. Problem is, you'll start looking at all your other tools as inferior models from here on in and it can get *very* expensive, *very* fast!  [wink]
