Thanks Peter, you and other Foggers reaffirm my faith in humanity...very little in the news feeds does.

The centrotec seemed ideal, and I got it marked down.

But other than "as an idea" it is crap... The SYSTEM is a bespoke size (6-mm) no one else in the world uses, and the bits rust quick.

It was the first cut I did using a whooping big Bosch blade.



That was your video Holmz?

Nope. I just wanted to seeing the video was done with SGi

I will never forget the time that Festool denied a warranty repair because a guy was using a non Festool blade in his Festool jigsaw and hit a hidden screw while he was making a cut.  Trashed the jigsaw - cost more to repair than what it was worth

I'm pretty sure it was stated that the non-Festool blade was not the reason that the warranty repair was denied.

I am pretty sure that you are wrong - although it is hard to believe that a 'Premium' tool manufacturer would deny a warranty claim under those circumstances, isn't it?

Aren't many of the tools made in the Czech Republic now?  When did that switch occur?

Many tools have been made by Festool under the ProTool label in Poland and the Czech Republic since forever. Around three years ago the ProTool range became Festool branded. Examples include the Rail Chain Saw, the DSC Cutting System, QuadDrills and the PDC drill.

Carvex and the accessory kit :(

Everything else has been perfect!

My add-on to this thread is the Festool miter gauge for the tracksaw. First it required immediate modification to be functional as it didn't have enough friction to hold an angle. Second it...well sucks. Fortunately aftermarket companies have stepped in and filled the void.

Concur wholeheartedly.  In my world, the Angle Unit is the most utterly useless of all the Festool goodies I've ever tried.  Mine came as part of an accessory kit.  Everything else was useful, but not the Angle Unit.

I remember that too. Festool blade or not I am not so sure that running into a screw (most are hardened) with a wood cutting blade is Festool's build fault.

For me it's a CT. If you get a Domino you need one. If you have any of the sanders you need one. Use a router you should be hooked up to one. Use a TS or a Kapex ditto. There's  even a device you can attach to a drill that will allow you to use a CT. You can do without a CT but there is no way all that wood dust is good for you.
