Do you have the Rotex? If you do, do you find that the ETS achieves a better fine finish than the Rotex in random orbit mode is capable of?

I've been considering getting one because my GF (and main furniture building accomplice) complains that the Rotex is finicky/jumpy in random orbit. I see what she's saying, but I have man hands, so I guess it doesn't bother me.

I do have both with at least 1000 hours on each.

The ETS 125 is a 2mm stroke, it will produce a much nicer finish. Next would be the ETS 150-3. If you have a Rotex the ETS 150-5 matches the orbit mode of the Rotex.

No the ETS is my first Festool. I will say it is one nice sander, real smooth, less vibration than any sander I have used.

I thought this was the festool fan club thread. Seems to be several non fans here. Maybe they should start their own thread.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I can't believe I just read through almost 4 pages of "grown adults" bickering like 12 year old girls about sleeping with your tools and my dad will kick your dads ass banter. What is this forum coming too? You guys get so worked up argue more than anything. I actually bought some festools from the early reading of this topic (which I really like) but it does seem if someone says festool sucks there's an uproar in the village.

This had nothing to do with the tools or their use.

My apologies for my contribution to your discuss.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


To keep this back on track

I recently moved to the UK. I went to festool Hq for a tool comparison. A festool compared with some other brand tools. It was put on by festool germany. They were wanting the publics opinion on some possible up grade to their tools.

All I will say that festool is looking to upgrade some of their tools which will definitely put them in the lead for portable tools. At least in this particular category.

Sorry, But I dont feel comfortable giving out to much info on this.

I dont know if they will follow through and decide to incorporate these up grades or go on to something else.

I thought it would be interesting to post how festool goes about doing market research.
BTW only pros were allowed to attend.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Went to a woodworking show today. The fiorst one I have been in the UK.
I had a conversation with some of the festool guys. They told me that there will be a couple of new tools coming out which will knock my socks off. I got a good idea as to what they might be well at least one of them. But the other I have no idea.

Are trying to start this thing all over again? I don't need you to tell me how to act. For some reason you must think you need to tell me this? if you'll notice almost always when there's chit talk your friend Dorcky Warner is right in the thick of it. It wasn't even his fight but he decided to jump in and it went from bad to worse. He immediately left this thread and started chit with someone else in another. I'm going to not just stand back and let people do that. Especially after I lost all respect for them. Simply put he trash talked my teenage daughter. I can't forget that.
