I have two questions about this!
1.Do we have to send the old tool to the dealer or festoolusa?
2.Can we get the metric or this is only imperial ones?

Thanks,

Stuff

Not really, the tools would be running 110V.  So they wouldn't be in Europe, Especially if they were to say re-introduce stuff back into the market.

Generally   new tools or updated versions of tools have been released in Europe several months to a year (in the Euro voltage version) before they have been released in 110v for the North American market. This is not conjecture it is a fact.  It is not 100% always true and it may not remain that way. But there is a previous track record.

Where I was going was more along the lines of maybe they are trying to sell down some inventory of Imperial/Inch tools before bringing back the metric tools and selling both.  The tools this was applying to looked to be the ones that got inched a few years ago.  Seeing they are expanding their facilities in the US, maybe they think they can handle both.

I wouldn't count on the RO150 or any Festool sander (Maybe an RAS) for doing the edge work after sanding the main parts of the floor. Have your buddy bring over a real edger and get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.

Ask your buddy for advice. I’m sure he’s dealt with it in the past. It’s also possible that the chamfer won’t be there after your buddy is finished sanding.

Thanks to for all the replies.  I've never had a motor that sparked as much as this one.   I've decided somet'n wrong and gonna send it in before it fails.

@rmhinden How does the metal tip hold up to being dropped?  I’ve used Alvin 0.7 mm Draftmatics for many years, but the tips are pretty delicate.

I haven't broken any.   I occasional misplace them.   I lost one recently when I was using my CT22 to clean up shavings on my workbench and sucked up the pencil :-(   I decided I didn't want to take the bag apart to find it.

I mostly use Zebra DelGuard 0.5mm Lead Mechanical Pencils.   It has an mechanism that makes it harder to break the lead.  See:     I think they are pretty cool and made in Japan.

I get them on Amazon, about $6. See:   http://a.co/d/ft3UjmD   They come in different colors.

They work well with the Incra rulers.
