Cost of a Festool sander-King Ranch was put forth as work truck-The Platinuim Edition one upped - showed picture of my work truck.

Mines a 7.3 PSD. They are very nice.

My friend had one with the V10. We used to call it the Fordasaurus.

Re: Finishing Sanders


dts400 is a really great sander.

we should all stop sanding and just go back to hand planing everything smooth. sanding is for hacks.

Re: Finishing Sanders


I have an ets 150 and I'm pretty sure it was less than $200. Great little sander. Between that and an RO90 I don't want for anything else.

I used to love Bosch tools, have a 4410 scms, 4100 ts, couple of routers, jigsaw, cordless stuff and a 5" sander. I bought the RO90 for a particular job and within a few months replaced the 4410 with a Kapex, the routers with QF1400's, plus the ets and a TS55 for good measure. Bosch make some great tools and there's nothing particularly wrong with the sanders, but IMHO the Festools are definitely worth the extra cash.

Actually it's not true. I want an RO150 too.

I can imagine. The RO90 with 40 grit on it is a dangerous tool.
