Because He, like the rest of us, get tired of the endless stream of ding-a-lings that roll around with the *exact same set of comments*, as if their revelation about the price of a tool is newsworthy and worth sharing and discussing.

The first 20 times it's a patient explaining , the second 20 it's a little monotonous but whatever, the 3rd 4th and 5th set of 20 it just gets to be a little done.

Hey chief, read the title of the thread. If you have reading comprehension problembs ask one of us to explain it to you. I know some of the words used are big ones.

I've got at shot a trimming out a really nice new house, all walnut, craftsman style. I'm more excited to show the GC what I can do than anything. I want to have every green tool I can to show everyone who walks on the job that I am no ordinary trim carpenter. Festool sets you apart from the average. It says something when people see tools and techniques that they didn't even knew existed...
Every one who i meet looks at the Festool tools and think they are very cheap and come from the local diy centre..

John..
If you had no exposure to tools/woodworking I could see that. It isn't known to the average person.

I would have said the same thing about a grex nailer.

Yep, did not fit my method of work. I thought it was too heavy and cumbersome for the way I work, I work in some large buildings and needed something lighter/smaller, more maneuverable. I even have a saw helper that I don't use anymore.

Well Chief, thats because you have low self esteem. Otherwise you would not care what other people thought.

Oh yea, learn to spell or type "problembs" ?

You found a spelling mistake, Woot! I guess you got to "win" something, even if it wasn't a point or a popularity contest.

Keep up the good work!

I thought the Carvex was $350 and the accessories kit $200...how does that add up to more than 600 ?

I love the bickering in this thread. Let us know how you like that Carvex. I have that D handle and accessory kit in my mental shopping cart.

So you got cordled? What were your rationals? I am debating corded-cordless. Normally I would hesitate more at choosing a cordless version as my primary but am seriously considering it for this.

I would love to have that new jigsaw, but the TS55REQ and a midi vac are ahead of it on my list...

i have the makita cordless but it aint upto much on larger stuff. its not powerful enough and it dont last long enough. i dont use jigsaws much but when i do i need them to be accurate. the makita aint bad but it is far from the carvex.

Sweeet!

Guess my pre-paid, overpriced Carvex should be arriving any day now.

Maybe I'll add the Festool First Aid Kit. There are not just normal Band-Aids and Neosporin in that sleek case.......they're "SPECIAL" German Band-Aids, heal you 5X faster, no scarring.
