Those who have older hoses might consider this product to retro "sleeve" them yourself. It's called Dura Wrap and is on the Internet from many vendors - available in various diameters. Closes with strong velcro and made of very tough woven Nylon.

I just rang Tess and spoke with her about my concerns.
I encourage and aussie to do the same give her a call.

Cheers

The new Grants Net mesh paper. Is that mostly for drywall?  Throughout the entire video they only show sanders being used on drywall. It would make the most sense but figure looks I would ask.


The mixer. Is it designed to mix concrete?  I’ve torn up way to many Milwaukee cordless drills on being stupid and mixing concrete with them.

@Festool USA

The recent question was asked about being dealer in South Africa, so reaching out to the Festool USA may not get him where he needs to be.  Then again you would know better than me.

Exciting to see that we do not need to wait a year for the new stuff.

Just a hunch, but I think it's because this stuff doesn't have a plug. So, no UL certifications, etc.

Definitely great to see this stuff showing up here soon after the Euro-intro though. [thumbs up]

Dang it, I just ordered an ETS EC 150/3 from toolnut! I wish I would of known about the new sanding pads. I would have waited.

Perhaps there for the forms when it was poured?  Or furring strips from a previous wall maybe?

No issue with cutting them flush.  Side cutters or a cut-off grinder or a sawzall could all work.

The simple answer is No, as others have mentioned. I use mine very well for small pieces or detailed items. However, I have had pretty good luck with long pieces when I've set up an  outbound surface for the piece to slide onto. At some point I would like to make a dedicated in/out feed platform to go around the 850 but haven't had time.
If you have a 6" jointer stick with it. Probably the more accurate option.

Tooltechnics have applied to the ACCC to continue retail price maintenance.

If you were a signatory to a 2016 Consumer submission to the ACCC, I have sent you two emails just now. Please PM me with your new email adress if you have not received these emails.

Moved into a new workshop recently and the back of the shop wall features a foundation that runs a good 3' high, with nails protruding. Is it OK to cut these nails flush against the wall? Pics:



Also, what function do/did these nails serve?
