I find part of the title of this thread (keep the box) funny. As somebody who has had there Kapex blow two motors in under two years it is the only tool I feel compelled too keep all the packaging for as I know I will be sending it back to Festool AGAIN!!!!!!! And mark my word it will go again if out of warranty it won't get fixed but instead replaced with a $600 DeWalt I won't have to worry about.   
Dont pay full price for that. I was able to get the Bosch GCM12SD Glide for $450 shipped from AcmeTools.com when they did their last 20% off coupon code (they are currently doing a 10% off) and I got the DeWalt DWS780 I had before that for $400 brand new in box off someone on Craigslist. Look around and give it a bit for a good deal. They are definitely out there. The Kapex and Omga's are the only ones that never really have good deals other than sometimes on used ones.

I'll defiantly watch Indy. Hope to get to see part of the 600.

If you ever get a chance go take the tour of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Truly an amazing place.

Festool How To... / Re: Cutting corrugated iron with your FS rails

The hot sparks will also embed themselves into any galvanizing and leave rust stains. To prevent this use a disc designed for cutting stainless as it does not leave any particles that will rust.

If you are cutting metal with an abrasive disc take care where the grinder is shooting the waste. A fair amount of disc and metal dust is spraying off the grinder. This dust is not really visible until the next rain shower. Then black dots of rust appear say right across your nice cedar wood deck and they don't come off.

I'm looking forward to Monaco, Indy and the NASCAR 600 mile race on Sunday.
A great day for motor racing.

This is becoming a bit disturbing with the EC sanders.   Seem to be more and more problems/failures being talked about around here.  [scared]

Mine failed within 6mo. of very lite use.
  What did it do again?  I'm in the middle of a bunch of sanding right now with mine, and just wanted to hear of any failures to be wary of,,,, [sad]
 

There have been several reports of the EC sander's electronic boards giving up the ghost.  Mine stopped working completely.

"Good to hear they took care of you though. That was very nice of them."

Not really, It's what they're obligated to do under their terms of sale to you.

Very nice would be taking care of the problem after year three.  Something that they have been known to do on occasion, but not necessarily with kapex.

I think keeping the shipping box + packing mtrl. is wise for any tool that doesn't come in a systainer.
Yea the dealer didnt have to do anything other than write down the phone number for the customer to call Festool Customer Support. Them offering their floor model was above and beyond on their part. Says nothing about Festool though.
