Much as I'd love to come, it's 335 miles each way, so unless there's lots of warning so I can arrange to fit other visits en route I'll have to pass.  Good luck, though.

I'd be up for that. Could show you all the MFTC that I've built and see if you would want to build one. I'll bend anyone's ear about festool. I'm close to 5 ways roundabout on a11 so I'm probably the closest too you. Bout half an hour! [big grin]

Ok guys, Now is there any tools that ya'll are interested in playing with.

I got a nice kit but I dont have everything.

 So If we can decide on which ones folks want to play with we can get one here and make it available.

As you can see Im trying to make this worth everyones while. Whether they want to just chat and get to know each other which is the man reason for this.

 Build a sense of community and share knowledge.

Cuz we all use the same tools but have different approaches.

Anyway let me know.

Ron

Personally I don't want to see anything there that I haven't already got - the temptation would be too great to spend more money!  [scared]

On a more serious note, there's currently nothing on my wish list, but I'd be happy to bring along anything that anyone else wants to have a play with and I have a few of the non-Festool bits and pieces that have popped up on the FOG recently too like the Jessem Clear Cut Stock Guides, so let's not restrict it to just Festool kit, let's consider some of the third-party bits and pieces we use to enhance the experience too.

Perhaps it would be nice to see jigs and gadgets that people have made to work with their festools.

Of course its not restricted to festool tools. Its not a festool sponsored event, its a bunch of knuckle dragging tool enthusiast getting together and hanging out. Like ive said its about creating a community and sharing knowledge.

Seriously Ron...

First you change your avatar to a your ID card picture and then you show off the road kill on the BBQ.

I hope the meat and greet goes well.
