These look somewhat similar to another famous makers polishing gear.
Should we assume that it is relabelled as Festool? And that the quality is the same?

There is no manufacturer or supplier in the World who "would" publish failure rates.

Maybe none that have, but some could.
If the rate was zero it seems pretty noteworthy.
One can market this in a number of ways. (For instance the Volvo still crash, and have fatalities, but their marketing leaves an impression)

Secrecy and silence is not aiding in calming conspiracy theorists.

I generally would rather be doing than watching, so I was lucky enough to get to do 8 laps at the ring a few years ago. A foggy, sunny, wet, damp, dry mixture.

Used a Suzuki Swift from rent4Ring and it was pretty ideal for the day.
Stayed at the Queen of the Ring's family hotel/B&B.

The only failure I've had was user error (managed to put the pad on canted and sand away).  I've not been nice to any of my sanders and the ec has been flawless.

Introduced in January, I ordered mine in February, and the first batch shipped last Monday (Germany, not sure about NA and ROW). Arrived today - the Spax Mini-L-Boxx.

And, finally I might add, also the 3,5 mm T-Star screws feature a T-20 drive. So no more changing between T 15 and T 20 on most projects. Great move if you ask me.

Included are: 3,5 x 16; 3,5 x 30; 4 x 35; 4 x 40; 4 x 50; 4,5 x 60 - overall 703 screws and 3 Bits T-Star Plus T 20.

The large L-Boxxes from Spax (102) are supposed to ship at the end of the month - but since I sold all my large L-Boxxes those aren't for me, anyway.

Kind regards,

We think alike.   The same week that I had PB Bauman fest, I also
ordered a pile of Wera's nippled torx bits.

Full pressure pot.

I'm really liking the the Graco Triton.

Street rod enthusiast here.  Just bought an '86 Chevy El Camino (analogous to an Aussie ute, more or less) yesterday.  I had been (not) working on a '48 Chevy that I finally admitted I would never finish but wanted to use the driveline I had collected - an LT1 engine and automatic transmission out of a '95 GM full size sedan with only 33K miles on them.  The El Camino became available without engine and transmission for reasons too complicated to go into here and appears to be in great shape.

The '48 Chevy is just a shell of a car and would have taken forever to get to the stage of completion of the El Camino so I'm stoked I may finish it in this lifetime.

Here's a shot of it in the seller's garage before he pulled the engine.  Potato image quality courtesy my brother's phone.

Hello Tim

"MFT tops i first used a mix of turpentine and linseed oil, and later i used the surfix heavy duty oil. result seems to be pretty much identical. Mdf doesn't "work" unless you have extreme humid..."

Tim what was the ratio turpentine to indeed oil please?

How do you apply it? Spray on or painting with a brush or roller?

Thank you

Just saw this promoted for $249 skin only ... ARGHHH!!! I don't have anything cordless in Makita [crying]

@Kev  Makita is making a bit of a resurgence in the DB10 workshop having just recently replaced all my old worn out 3ah Makita batteries for new 5ah's. Hope to add the cordless router very soon.

Here's another intro to fun. From a woodworking point of view the barn is awesome.
