Well, that'll cover you the first three years anyway, but after that if it happens again it'll cost you hundreds to fix. Good to hear they took care of you though. That was very nice of them.

Finishing and Painting / Re: New Fuji 2Qt. Pressure pot # 5432?

I run a Fuji Q4 and several guns with PPS. I too wanted something to have more paint volume for certain projects. I bought the Graco GX19 hopper airless end of last year. That with the new fine finish low pressure tips is an excellent paint system for latex, no thinning, little overspray, and the hopper holds 1-1/2 gallons. While the cost is more than the Fuji 2 qt add-on, the CA bandit stuff starts to approach the GX19 hopper. Just a an alternative thought.

Thanks, definitely an option worth consideration.

In the video Phil's Shinex came in  a systainer.  I bought one a couple months ago and it didn't come in a systainer.  What's up with that?

It happened. 1 year and 9 months going strong. The the motor wound down during a series of cuts and an electrical smell. My Kapex is very central to my business and being without it, just about shuts me down. I got a repair order started, Packaged up my Kapex, Got a shipping label from Festool and dropped it off at UPS before the holiday weekend to begin it's transit to Indiana from Arizona.

Swung by my dealer, and told them what happened, and that I did the work to send it back so they didn't have to (They don't get paid for that labor), And it would have probably not started to ship until after the Holiday weekend. But they chimed in and said, "you can borrow our Demo" until mine comes back from Festool.

This is the Service I Paid for and am happy it's there. Of course no one is happy when a tool that is top dollar goes down and has to go in for service, But even a fairly new Mercedes can end up in the shop for a warranted item. It's all in how the company and the dealers service their customers.

So thanks to Festool and their great dealers for keeping my business up and going.

I am sure that they will stock the new guide rail clips very soon.

I am sorry that I do not know if they have the new cutter yet.

Nice, thank you!  I was pondering the metric WP gauge, I'll hold off now.

Bumping this up as I'm looking at adding a 2qt pressure pot to my 4 stage Fuji/T70.  With the CA Bandit, is there an advantage (or disadvantage) to going with the 50 psi pot vs the regular 15?  Do you find you ever need more than 15 psi for heavy latex paints?

I wish they would carry the clips to the dogs like the shop in England.

FWIW I have the Imperial version of the Jessem and pre-ordered the 6" Imperial version of the Woodpeckers. Looking forward to comparing the two. The Jessem is very nicely built and really cool. Be nice if it could hole a marking pencil like the Woodpeckers though.
