Warner Should Be Banned!


Thanks Warner. I now have the festool bug and im not impressed . The guys in the store now know me by first name terms.

In the last week i have ended up with this and im sure it's only going to get worse. The sortainers sure are a nice bit of kit though. Got all my screws, finish nails, staple, brads into that one box. Dam heavy though.

CT33
Tradesman hose kit
TS55 with 2 55" tracks
Sortainer

He gave you a glass of the green koolaid. He didn't tell you to chug it, that was all you.

Ban Warner? We can't do that!

But it would save me some money on monitors. I can't tell you how many times between Warner, Angus, and JF I have actually sprayed sprite, coffee or some other beverage laughing at their posts!

Seriously though, BC those are some cool looking accessories!

Re: Warner Should Be Banned!


nice setup. i went with the ct22, those things are heavy but i love the vac. holds enough for me,33 is just more capacity, same vac. i sometime wish i had gone with the 55 saw instead of 75 but ripping lots of sheet of plywood is a time saver. for the most part, i don't use the cutting capacity of the ts75 saw.

btw, you don't need to clamp the guide system. it never moves unless you are on a small piece of wood.
I want their orbital sander next. and that nice 12 volt drill with magnet on the front. i've used one a few times and loved it. won't replace my impact from makita but definitely a nice drill. i heard they were coming out with a D shaped 15 volt. haven't seen it on their website though

i don't have the budget to buy the things i really want. all in due time. not everything they sell is a necessity to me. 1300 for a chop saw. no thanks!

The 55vs75 was a debate i had with my self whilst looking at them. I very very rarely need to cut multiple sheets so the 55 was the one for me. As long as i can cut a 8x4 then I'm happy. I went for the CT33 just for the extra capacity. I have already filled one bag in 3 days so it's going to pay off having the larger model.

The only thing I'm not happy with is i was under the impression that all the festool stuff was made in Germany. Some of it's made in Czech republic from the stickers on the side. I always though Czech republic pumped out cheap crap!!

Re: Warner Should Be Banned!


oh, i reuse that paper bag in the vac too. i have filled it tons of times and just empty it into a can/bag by shaking it. most of it is just sawdust anyways.
you can get many uses out of them, would get expensive buying a bag every time it was filled. their reusable bag is big money, not worth it to me right now.
i don't use the vac everyday either. i have other vacs that do the bulky work, using the CT22 for cutting inside or final cleanup inside of a finished space.

You can lead a horse to water but, you can't make him drink!!

Now you need a hose garage and a handle for that 33!!
Some of their consumables are made in the Czech Republic. It goes for all countries were things are made, if the company keeps on them for the quality they want/expect, then there are usually no issues.

I have been selling some tools and then replacing them with Festool. I have yet to find another tool company that has a system approach like festool.
Each tool you buy from them works with all the other one's, no orphan tools.

I see a mft/3 in your future as well. I love my table.

Remember, if you are not happy with something take it back within 30 days for a refund.
Oh, the service is also top notch. I have met the Festool USA ceo and almost everyone that works at their usa headquarters. These guys eat, sleep and breathe these tools.

By the way, that is just a baby stack you got going on there. I think mine is 10' tall not counting my CT.
I also broom clean and then do a final vac with my CT, seems to save on the bags a little.

If you do a lot of stationary collection with your vac, I'd consider the cyclone garbage can lid.


I heard something about the dust deputy making a festool vac attachment too (probably on this forum)....

get both and hardly ever change a bag again :P
