What about a plunge base for the MKF 700?

Agree!  [thumbs up]

A plunge base for the MKF700 would make me buy the pair immediately. A plunging palm router would be a killer.  [drooling]

I've been very close to buying the Bosch GKF 600 many times lately.
I'd really like to have a true one hand router but I think I'd be missing the plunge mecanism if I bought the Bosch

Kind regards
Henrik

I wish that Festool made available a sample pack of small bottles of the finish products included in the Surfix set.  Nothing else.  It would give an opportunity to test for color changes on raw wood prior to committing to a larger set.

Peter, that's something I asked for when it first came out but it fell on deaf ears  [sad]. I probably would have then bought the complete set but I'm not going to take that chance.
If its made of wood, i can make it smaller.

Centrotec bit set!!!! Make it s permanent product in your line up.
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Gotta put in another plug for a Kapex/UG Kapex combo set.  Why not?

Also a DF700 w/both domino systainers as a set.

I don't imagine that either of these tools will often be a first time buy for those new to Festool.  If they are, they will get a discount and incentive to buy more.  For those of us that have already spent $K on Festool, a small reward for our loyalty to the Festool system.

An oscillating tool and a blade with no teeth works pretty well for me.

I wish Festool made a mistake and sent at least one of every type of their tools to me!

Seriously, try...

...an improvement in the Kapex trenching capability.

...injection moulded Parf and Bench Dogs free with every MFT3.

...a better pin system on the DF500 - like the brilliant ones on the DF700

...more effort to support the European members of the FOG (competitions with prizes would be a nice start).

Hi Kev,

I hope all those fires are well away from you and your family.

Yes, I like your adjustment but I thought that I was being generous by saying European rather than UK or Brit!

Hey Peter,

No fires here, in fact my weekend project of new front facia boards was cut short due to rain ! I hope the rains hitting where it's needed.

Our distribution in OZ isn't directly Festool owned, so give away promotions are rare ... but they have looked after me a couple of time  [big grin]

We also seemed to have a price drop on consumables, accessories and a few tools ... info is a bit sketchy, but promising !

cheers,

Kev

I wish this was simply detachable.  Rarely do I like it... but rarely is it inconvenient for me.

I wish Festool USA sold all three sizes of AS hose in continuous length without connectors, as Festool does in many other countries.

My experience has been that the vac connectors do not wear out. I find the 27mm tool ends wear faster than the 36mm tool ends. A long time ago I bought several new tool and vac ends in all three sizes. But over the years I have replaced several assembled hoses from which I saved the connectors.

If I could buy just the hose, I would be very happy.

oscillating tool with suitable dust collection!

this is a long shot but a spiral cutting saw with integrated dust collection that works, im always cutting drywall and would love to have a spiral cutting saw that actually collects dust!
