Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I too have my eye on the sys roller. It would be great for condo work, but already customized my 3 - 6ft x 3ft dbl decker dollies to hold all I need. Tricked out like my sprinter. I have not bought because I have no use for it yet. It is pretty sweet.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I have the roll board for the old style systainers, it works good in the shop and for wheeling stuff around on site. I guess I can make another kit to roll around on the new one.

I can always find a use for something like that.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Thanks a lot BC....that's what I figured.

At least now it's confirmed so I won't go in there acting like a jackass.

Let's see.......

Kapex w/MFT and the UG wings and crown stops
New T55 REQ w/ MFT3 (cuz having 2 ain't bad/3 if we count the 75)
Another MFT3
(2) Trion jigs D-handle
Another RO125 w/ a Midi (another one where having 2 is sweet, my fav along with the Tracks and the Domino)
Planex and CT36AC
(2) ti15 Hybrids
(2) CSX 10.8
Another 106" Guide Rail, a 75", and (2) more 55's...and the tote bag
(2) Abrasive Systainers for the RO's
Router Bit Systainer
First Aid Kit (even though I have a nice one, it isn't green)
An absolute chitload of abrasives
Same on saw blades......for the (2) 55's, the 75, and the Kapex
Plus....just about every extractor, Domino, etc., goody I don't have.


I think that covers it. I feel a little high right now. I've been waiting to do this for a little while, I almost can't believe it.

I'm sure that I am still forgetting something.

The Ti-15 hybrids are a waste of money. I would save that grand.

That's a great selection. I was testing the TI15 today. It couldn't sink a 3" screw into maple. I'm taking my makita impact in on Friday to do a comparison but I'm sure my makita could have done that with ease. Let us know how you get on with the impact. Seemed to roar the screws into a stud so the maple could have been stupid hard. loved the way it adjusted it's power on the fly.

What's the reason for 2 of everything also? You getting spares or you got one lucky helper lol

Oh.....you know it gets put in the write-off column, otherwise it wouldn't be happening.

It should be considered therapy. Cuz I feel like a 7 year-old on Christmas morning, and the buzz will reactivate every time I glance over at those Systainer racks in the trailer/shop and/or have one in my hand.........which will be pretty much ALL THE TIME now!!!!!!

PHUCK YEEEAAAAAAA!!! (sorry, but I figured I'm in a safe place with people that understand my addiction)

I have seen all that stuff, but I have no issues using my domino, that would make me want to spend more money on those things.

I have a paperless partner/great friend who introduced me to Festools (quite by accident). His F-tools lived with me for a couple years till I started buying my own.....so I'm gonna repay his kindness.

Actually a great story. His Mom's best friend dated some guy who owed her a bunch of money when they split. So she kept his Festools as collateral. He never came back. My buddy did a job for her, she paid him in cash and "the real Green".

My life has never been the same since he came over and said "whaddya make of these German things"?

I used the Ti15 a couple months ago, for a little bit, into LVL's....it seemed great. It could spit Lithium in my eyes and be better than my 3 new DeWalt sets.......(2) 20Li's and 12Li's.....they suck!
