Title: Got to meet Erock
Post by: Shane Holland on August 22, 2017, 03:24 PM
Some of you probably know Eric (@erock) from his YouTube videos about Festool tools. He happened to be in my town this week on a business trip and I was able to catch up with him last night. Always great to meet folks in person and talk tools.  [big grin]

Be sure to follow him on social media.

Did he have anything to share about his relationship with Festool? Some of his YouTube comments indicate he's gotten frustrated with the brand.

You would have to ask him. Our conversation was just fun and casual dude talk. I've known Eric for many years when he started posting here on the FOG and making videos. Good dude.

Really enjoy Eric's videos.  And his new shop!   Some great content here on FOG thanks to his efforts.  Agree, always great to meet FOGGERS in person.

His absence in making videos is noted. I'll have to sub to his IG feed.

Yes, Eric did a great series of videos on building cabinets
and so many reviews of tools. I liked his style and presentation.
I miss his YT videos. Maybe someday he'll do some more.

@Shane Holland just looking through some of these connection threads today.  For whatever reason I noticed your hat.  Good choice.  Big silver arrow fan myself.

@SoonerFan, thanks! I had the opportunity to go to the Mercedes museum in Stuttgart during my first trip to Festool Germany many years ago. Extremely amazing and engrossing to go through it. So much history and innovation. It's still one of my favorite experiences in my travels.

Funny... I drive an Audi, but I'm a Mercedes fan too in racing. One of my sons got that hat for me for Father's Day, so it also has great sentimental value for me.
