Sales & Dealer Area / Re: FestoolRecon.com coming VERY soon (US)
« Last post by SRSemenza on Today at 12:02 AM »
      Seems pretty simple to me. When a tool is put up for sale on the recon site the price will be posted. Just like when anybody sells anything any where.

     Don't want to give out your email address, then don't. Not really any different than getting sale notifications from other sites / companies.

..seeing its their first chance to get one at a discount.

Don't think Festool really cares that much about landing first time customers that would only be customers because of a discount.

Yep, but when so many are lining up at the koolaid stand willing to pay full price it makes it kinda hard to come up with a "discount" that really works and at the same time doesn't erode that MAP scheme everyone is so fond of.   

I know I wouldn't relish that task, if it's even possible. Marketing folk have my utmost sympathy.

I am interested in what anyone has to say about this saw.  I know nothing about it.  I am considering purchasing it. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Festool Wish List / Re: Autonomous orbital sander
« Last post by antss on Yesterday at 11:25 PM »
My point was twofold fellas. 

One you picked up on Seth - CNC automation for routers has been around awhile yet market penetration has not gotten to the commodity level, despite the constant price drop.  And that you (the masses ) still don't have one.

But I bet you guys all have a couple of routers, yes ?  Including the coat tail riders.

The second was that a CNC router (that already exists ) could easily be fit with a sander and programmed to sand.  It'd be a very simple program to write in a short amount of time.

Gregor , I appreciate your piling on; but what does a of1400 bring to a CNC offer that five other routers with mounts in stock don't bring to the party ?   Besides added cost and a systainer ?  Longer duty cycle ? More precision ? faster spindle speed? More torque? More pleasing colors ?

In case y'all have still not deciphered it - automatic sanding could exist tomorrow. Literally.  With little effort for those that truly thought it beneficial.

And not with a roomba. [tongue]

Unfortunately, we don’t know what the level of discount is, if there indeed is a discount, because Festool corporate never answered my original query. Festool has yet to come clean with that aspect of the sale.

All we know is they are selling a bunch of like tools, one at a time over who knows how long, for a price that’s yet to be determined.

I could go on but I won’t... [sad]

This is a well built piece.  Two things that stand out to me are the proportions, especially the size of the base relative to the body and the matching wood grain in the doors.  Are the doors Cherry ply?

Nice job!  Thanks for sharing.

You could easily resell it here or on ebay. Since its discontinued, it is very sought after.

I like the design with the CT behind a door to cut down on sound and the plastic tub right below for the scraps.  You did a nice job and thanks for sharing!  A lot of good ideas to copy.
