Festool Is Making Me Mad


Every time I use something from them that I don't have I wind up at the end of the day having green in the trailer and out of my pocket. Didn't have any festool stuff last year and now the stack and store that started out in my trailer turned into a store of stacks.

I've got green kool-aid all over my face now and instead of wiping it off I just go back for more. Damn it festool!

Don't worry, after 3 years you will slow down and only buy one thing a year.

Only reason he will buy just one thing a year, will be that he will already own one of each tools they make.

But then comes time to get backups. And backups to the backups. And then a set for the helper... Just gotta keep turning green in the pocket into Green Koolaid.

Re: Festool Is Making Me Mad


I keep telling my dealer I'm NOT buying the kapex, and then he let me try his old one on the job I'm on... I'm buying the kapex.

I should get a hat or shirt or something from them so my wife feels better about the amount ive spent in the past month.

"Look sweetheart i bought this $4k shirt for you to exercise in and i got all these tools for free."
