Title: MW 1000 US Availability?
Post by: JPCleary on September 04, 2018, 05:48 PM
I could’ve sworn I read a thread on FOG about the MW 1000 being available in the US in October, but I can’t seem to find it now...

Regardless, anyone have any reliable intel on when we might see this item hit US shores?

You may be thinking of this thread: http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/new-mobile-workshop-mw-1000, but that linked to the Festool UK site announcing the October release date.

I don't believe there is any information on if/when it's coming to the US.

Yeah, you’re probably right...I looked right past that link when I just went searching for it.

Dang it...I want that MW 1000!!

You may get lucky ordering it as the TANOS version through a US distributor

They do not ship Festool products to the USA since last year in compliance with Festool policy.

This is what I got back from Axminster...

“Hello Mr Cleary,

Unfortunately this will be something that we will not be able to assist you with. Regretfully, due to sales restrictions put in place by Festool, we are unable to ship their products to the USA or Canada. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

We would recommend emailing Festool directly on alex.newbury@festool.com who can assist you in finding a local supplier.

In the meantime, please don't forget we can ship most of our other products to the USA. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best Regards”

I forwarded it to Alex Newbury of Festool to see what his response would be...

“Hi John,

As per Axminster’s email we can’t export Festool goods outside of Europe. This is the same for all dealers here in the UK, therefore I can’t help you any further or recommend another supplier.

My apologies and thank you for your interest in Festool.

Kind regards

Alex”

Keep an eye on Amazon in other countries. Plenty on there will ship to the US via Amazon Prime and you can get some good prices too.

Any suggestions on how to get one, I'd like to hear. I tried Amazon.de and got a message that it was not available in the US. Anyone who has a connection, please send me a pm.

There are multiple sellers for each item.

Here's the list for the Mobile Workstation 100 Basic (https://www.amazon.de/gp/offer-listing/B07H3G4DRY/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new)

I order lots of things (tools, electronics, video games, metal movie cases) from Amazon.de and have never had an issue finding a seller that ships to the US. Anything that is sold by Amazon will ship to the US, regardless of what it says in the top corner.

I assume this isn’t an Amazon issue, it’s that Festool imposes geographic restrictions on its dealers, which I discovered when attempting to order one of these through Axminster...I posted their response further up the thread. The fact that we’re attempting this through Amazon doesn’t change that.

I attempted adding it to my cart from all nine dealers on Amazon.de and they all gave the same error message when it got to the shipping address...

“This item can not be shipped to the selected address. Learn more . You can either change the delivery address or delete the item from your order. You can also see if this item is available for shipping to your address through another dealer.”

Title: Re: MW 1000 US Availability?
Post by: rvieceli on December 09, 2018, 11:26 AM
If the item is actually sold by Amazon and not a third party, you will generally be able to get it to the USA. Usually a dealer selling through Amazon will NOT ship to the USA.

Post by: James Carriere on December 12, 2018, 10:59 PM
Yes that is correct.  I've purchased a few times from Amazon.de and it must be sold directly by Amazon and not a third party vendor.  One other thing to watch for is that their stock comes and goes so it's not uncommon for them to not have an item sold directly from Amazon one month, have it the next month, and not have it again a few weeks after that so some persistence can pay off in the long run.

Same. I think I ordered the first week of December and got mine about a week and a half ago. Well worth the wait. The worst part is worrying about damage in transit, but that's the risk one takes when ordering overseas. Luckily it was packed well and there were no issues. I think I'll use the extension table more than the actual cart. I may order another extension table in April.

I have the same luck, but I'm really glad they're bringing this across the pond. No electric issues to worry about so it just makes sense. I've already gotten some great use out of mine. Between this and a Shaper Origin I feel like I have a CNC which is easily portable when needed (among other things).

I was discouraged by the price.  $650 for the set is a little steep for me.  It just wouldn't provided added value.
If I only had one MFT I could maybe see buying the MW1000 as my second, but 2 MFT's provide a lot more workspace for the price.
