Will the Festool blades work in my Bosch 1590 ?

They should. I use them in my makita and Bosch blades fit my makita.

Hey Darcy,
Cool pictures of you in Festool May edition "new product" catalog. I just left from Wood world here in Chicago empty handed because they were out of Ro150 sender that I was going to use on Monday. Almost left with the new Ts55 Req with mtf/3 table, but I need the sender more.

I was told they were putting me in a bunch of different things, but I have not seen any of them. The guys at festool are saving copies of everything to give to me when I stop down to see them this summer.

Darcy looks like he needs to stop using his tools and eat something. Maybe trim the beard too. JK

Without the beard he looks a little too much like Richard Chase.

It hit 80 here this week and the beard had to go, at least most of it.

I was also sick for a week and dropped down to 137lbs, it is a solid 137 though.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Got these in post the other day. Forgot I ordered them a while back and was a surprise when they turned up.

Square drive bits for the centrotec chucks. Got them from www.toolnut.com They 2 different sets but they seem to be the same things. Mine say atlas on the invoice yet were not marked atlas in the site. Seem to be very good quality too.

Atlas Tool fabricates them in Canada, I ordered mine directly from Atlas. I got both sets.

They have held up real well. You should be happy with them.
