Festool Tools


I've run across a guy selling a bunch of tools for $2500 including a festool panel saw, dust extractor, small sander (traingular one), router, jig saw along w/ a Jessem (spelling?) really nice looking router table w/ motor and fences. I've never experienced Festool tools before but they look very nice..and pricy. The guy was going to throw in an older wet saw and an old style dewalt slider saw. Can anyone comment if it's a good deal given the router table and Festool items?

Re: Festool Tools


It just depends on what ones they are. The sander is 275, rail saw 500-800 rails 90-400, routers 350-850, jig saw 275ish, the sad part about the used tools is they command almost as much as they are new. I only bout one so far used, and I got a deal on the above mentioned sander with 6 full boxes of paper for 50 bucks less that the price of the sander new.
