Mine will ship on Feb. 15th.

Wouldn't it make sense to make a Kapex adapter to use any blade you wanted. Vs. Always needing to have blades bored that don't otherwise fit?

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I ordered a pro 5 ltd through KMS tools in a pre sale. Was supposed to be here November 1. Then I was told middle of November. Now I'm just told that Festool is the hold up and we don't know.
This was from my understanding a promo to show people that Festool is worth the money.
All I can say is wtf how can I tell if it's worth the money if you can't even get me the sander that I've bought. I have a planex a dts400 and a ct36ac and I love them.
But this has left a bad taste in my mouth. Guess the green kool aid is over rated.

The only problem is that Festool had no idea how wildly successful this promotion would be. That really isnt their fault

I disagree, it is like selling crack to 20 year olds. They will get hooked and be back for more. That had to have known.

In the end it will be very profitable, just like a store has a sale.

They just underestimated by a lot, but some promotions guy is very happy

Does anyone know why when I run a new style ETS sander it turns on other vacuums wirelessly? Not even on the same circuit.

My partner keeps thinking it's the FBI wanting to get our employee because he's always on the up and up on conspiracy theories... . But in all seriousness, both my 6 inch and his 5 inch set off other plugged in vacs. Festool and a Fein. These are new construction tract homes, maybe the electrician has some funky wiring going on. Also I run my vacs and saws on separate circuits through an iVac auto switch, if that has anything to do with it.

Must be. I have mine on all day next to at least 2 CT's in the shop and it only turns the one on it's plugged into.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Well still no pro5 for me. Can't even get a date or a reply as to when it may come.
Also waiting on a new top for my ct36ac.
Not impressed at all with Festool in this respect.
I paid for my sander in September when can I have my sander?
The store I bought through just keeps saying we don't have them yet we will ship it as soon as we get it. Festool didn't even reply to our emails.
If it wasn't such a deal on such a good product that I want and need I would cancel and never order another thing from Festool or the store.

Arrrg I'm pissed
