Keep analyzing while waiting for an answer.  Then the date will pass.  Festool will not respond to marketing questions and everything else you hear here will be pure speculation.  Evaluate your wants and needs and make an educated decision before purchasing tools.

I don't expect answers. But, when I speculated that promotional PRO5 sander would eventually become a new model I was right.  [big grin]
Festool denied the plans at the time. So, there.  [big grin]

Any idea whats the expiration on the card?

I finally got an answer. Prepaid MasterCards expire 6 months after they’re issued.

Come to think of it, I may not be tensioning enough, I guess it's a trial and error thing. I'll keep trying different settings, I've also been playing with the idea of a carbide blade, any specific suggestions there? Thanks!!

Thinking Aloud - NOT that it's not a good deal   BUT       My only hesitation is that the saws and routers being offered for the rebate are being replaced by a newer line and hence Festool is replenishing their stock to make room for the newer version ( unknowns to us).
So is the $100 savings  worth it?????
Your thoughts?

New arrival, new price tag.  Might be more than $100 difference.

I think you are right about flushing old stock in anticipation of new arrivals.

One thing I forgot to mention is that once heated up to the proper temp, the gun retains enough heat so that it can be used continuously for 10-15 minutes without having to return it to its cradle. Ya, the old kit was pretty sweet. [sad]  It held everything inside plus had enough room to hold 6 extra adhesive syringes.

I wonder if you talked with Rockler they may have some NOS Steinel/TiteBond stock left over as they weren't discontinued that long ago. The local Rockler still had the kits about 4-5 months ago.

Might give you satisfaction but I can virtually guarantee if that type of stuff happens this will be a one and done type of promotion.

Just like the toy tools.

Just my opinion.
