I must be missing something:  What does the $30 price differential get you on the Mini and the Midi?

Does the new hose come with the 90° end fitting for use with the Mini and the Midi?
Is the new hose heavier than or lighter than the current hose?

@RustE, yes, the upgrade on the MINI/MIDI is the new hose with the correct right angle vac-end connector.

I have heard that the new hose is lighter and more flexible. Again, let's get @TylerC  to confirm.

@Festool USA :  You guys ever get more information about this topic?

I am thinking about using the suggestion made by @tjbnwi with P240 on the RTS400 and P320 by hand.

Looks like stuff is getting to our side of the pond a little quicker...

Is anyone else surprised that Bluetooth remote/module isn't $195?

@live4ever they are selling you the razor, the new batteries are the blades...

True true.  I guess I don't see the real need for the BT batteries if there's a vac button right at the end of the hose (basically at the tool).  But maybe that's just me. 

I don't have a CT that can take the BT module anyways - maybe a 26 one day when I have to replace my Feins.

Considering the 26", but $40 for the case - one expensive piece of MDF...  https://www.woodpeck.com/psq2018.html

@JerseyDan  I just made a cleat style holster on the side of my work bench. It was free, made from scraps and keeps it readily accessible.

If you have a CT 26/36/48 and would like to add the new improved T-LOC hose garage with better reinforcement and structural design, we now have them available for order. Also, the new pivoting cord wrap, which can be retrofitted to your CT 26/36/48.
Man, wish that would have been cheaper. Ill still be ordering one though. Hopefully I can sell the one my CT 36 came with!

@Sarjsmith You might want to take a look at renting an orbital floor sander from your local rental or home center. More forgiving than the drum sander but because it usually has four heads it goes faster. Here's a link from Lowes but most places have these available. You'll still need to do the edges by hand.

Can this be used on a CT MIDI? 

The MINI & MIDI are missing some pinouts on their circuit boards, until Festool decides to upgrade the boards, the answer is no. [sad]    [crying]

Other Tools & Accessories / Cabinet Design Software for DIY CNC Guy
« Last post by Scorpion on Today at 12:27 PM »
To set context - I build my own cabinets (vanities, kitchen, built-ins, etc).  I’m pure DIY, no time in life for hire.  Tools for cabinet building are not a limitation, I’m set.  CNC-router-wise, I’m looking for a smaller machine like a RouterParts.com Pro Series in a size 4x4 or smaller (space isn’t copious).  Want to figure out the software capabilities before I commit to a machine.

What I want to do - today I’m comfortable with my cabinet building processes but I’m growing tired of switching operations.  I’d like to drop a “blank” in a CNC router and have it cut the dado’s for the back panels, cross braces, domino slots, and shelf pin holes in one op.  Same goes (double) for drawers.  CNC will be useful for many other things too.

I can stumble my way through building cad files to cut these parts but I’m curious if there’s some software out there that (affordably) can turn a cabinet design into cut/g-code files?  I think the cost would have to be less than $1k for it to make sense for the home/diy guy but I’m open to +\-.  I’d like

Any suggestions that align?

Matt
