"Festool" Measuring cup
« on: June 20, 2016, 01:03 PM »
I don't know if I have a sickness.   [unsure]
Or if I just like the color.   But I find myself stopping and looking at items with the color green similar to the Festool green.   My latest and greatest is this measuring cup that I used for mixing boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits.




This is just one example of things I've bought because it was close to the Festool green color.   How about you guys?   Show us a picture of something you use around the shop that has the Festool green.
I know I'm not the only silly rabbit with this sickness   [big grin]

I bought some spring clamps and an extension cord because it was green. The spring clamps turned out to be decent.

Sorry I don't have a picture of it (because I no longer own it) but my iPhone 5S case was Festool green.  When I upgraded to the iPhone 6S, the Otterbox case in the same green was more expensive (must have figured out the Festool connection) so I went with a black case.

If there was a case branded with Festool, I'm so sick that I'd probably buy it.

Like is said, the measuring cup is only ONE "Festool" green thing I've bought because....well.....it's green.
Like you, I bought a rubber phone case for my Samsung Galaxy S4 because it was green.




My wife is surprised that I don't have green socks or boxer briefs.    But don't worry, when she goes shopping with her mom and sister they keep an eye out for the perfect shade of green for me.    [eek]

Have no fear my dear.....

It has tbs/cup/ oz and mL measurements on the side of the cup.  The shade of green makes it difficult to see in the picture.

Soooo- if someone has the sickness and has to have one of these measuring cups, will you reveal your source?

I picked it up from my local grocery store, Giant Eagle.    The brand is call "goodcook".    It's small.  Goes up to 1/4 cup or for some guys 60mL.   [tongue]     I was only $1.69

How about 'drove it to the shop'? Does that count?
Actually I had the Camaro before the Festool bug really hit me hard! Since sold the car, oh well--

It might not be as precise as a Festool.
