New(ish) to the group
« on: December 08, 2018, 04:07 PM »
Hello all, been lurking in the shadows for a while now. You all have dispensed so much information that I have never really had a reason to post. But I'm making my presence now.

Started my habit with a Rotox 150 and Midi I bought from a local paint store. Then came the TS75 and rail. Next was the Planex and CT 36 AC.

I'm looking to add the Domino to my mix soon so I can deliver cabinets in a knockdown format for easier installation.

Cheers
Justin

The sanders performances are definitely the gateway drug to Festool addiction.

The sanders performances are definitely the gateway drug to Festool addiction.

I had used some Festool goodies on a cabinet install, with the owner telling me about the system. So when my sander broke on a big job, I did some research.... Now I'm deep down the rabbit hole...  Haven't updated my signature, because the systainer stack keeps growing too fast.
CT 26E, RO125, sys-mft, sys-toolbox, a bunch of 30 year old tools I'm looking to replace.

I've only just entered the world of Festool sanders (with a Rotex), though my 'gateway drugs' were a CSX, the Centotec sysytem and the KALII lamp.

Somewhat oddly (perhaps) I discovered Festool via the Systainers, having begun a collection of those some time before I realised that a) other brands used them too, and b) that Festool actually made tools as well...

 [welcome] to the FOG. If You keep coming here, Im sure you'll find many ways to seperate $$ from your bank account  [big grin]

You just took your first step down the slippery slope.

Remember your in good company.

The biggest problem with that slippery slope is that Festool keeps throwing grease onto it.  I thought that i was done as the only thing left on my list was the STL, got that from the recon site $100.00 off.  Now they have that new cart/work table, I'm hoping it's NAINA until much later in 2019 or better yet not until 2020.
