Hello everyone. My name is Michael and I've been lurking for a while and finally made the step up purchasing Festool the last 6 months. I mostly do refinish work with some light install here and there. Love the difference using the sanders and the dust collection when inside a customer's home and keeping my clean up to a minimum.
welcome to one of the biggest benefits of owning and using FESTOOLs: the FOG. This well managed and well participated forum is an unbelievable source of information, help and second opinions not available with any other line of power tools I know of.
Don't let the thought that you're spending too much time on the FOG get in your way to benefit from participating. After a while you get to know fellow members and "where they're coming from" with their advice and comments. Participating on the FOG not only helps you be more productive but also greatly adds to the enjoyment of working with these tools!
