CT Mini is up this morning.
I have just bought one and it still up, so I guess they have more than one for sale.

Just a heads up in case you are planning on immediately using the MINI -- I bought a MIDI last week in the big sale and was disappointed to find that there was no bag included in the box or in the vacuum.  I had ordered some bags online (backordered) and was able to find some locally a few days later.

This is obviously an oversight and a quick call to Festool would have remedied it. I determined my Kapex saw blade was too worn to cut without burning and no questions asked. In the process of sending me one but have yet to receive.

Is that the model  [Kapex]  with all the motor issues or the newer one?

I'm not positive, but I thought this was the newer "fixed" one.

Yes it is the new one, you can tell because the MitreFast Angle Transfer tool no longer resides on the front of the base.

TS 55 REQ-F Track Saw just posted at 10:54AM EST.

Interesting that it comes with a Systainer3.

I wonder if that speaks to the newness of the tool or if they just put an old tool in a new Systainer.

In any event, I would have to think it minimizes your chances of getting a beat up Systainer.

I'll have to check the HK55 I just got; it came in a Systainer3, but I didn't look closely at the manufacture date.  My guess is just making sure it's in a nice clean container.

I think they might have internal competition to see what the hardest thing they can come up with to sell is, while still getting sold. This is one of the craziest things they have come up with so far.

Much larger discount too.  Would be worth it even if you only need 4 or 5 of the tools.

That seems like what you would get if you created a "Pro Demolition Combo Kit" to stand alongside the "Pro Remodeler Combo Kit" and "Pro Finish Combo Kit"

I'm with you on this one...what are you going to do with 4 battery chargers? This would make more sense if it was teamed up with a MINI/MIDI instead of a drywall vac. Besides, the only tool that hooks up directly to the vac is the OSC but the vac comes with a 36-32 mm hose so you'd have to add an adapter to the little OSC.

The "Kit" would also include 1 each HSK sanding block and a box of 50 each dust bags.

FYI, the 48AC isn't like the 36AC in that the latter comes with the PLANEX compatible hose. The 48AC comes with a smooth 36 hose and a 27mm adapter. It's quite nice.

CT SYS Dust Extractor is up.

With the old style hose it appears. They also sell a recon version with the new smooth hose for $15 more every so often.

There was a DF700 earlier. I think an OF 1010 is going up as well as an OF 2200 today. Good day to watch the Recon.

I'm with Jussi; I figured the Kapex was next and that would be it for the day today.

I should probably wait until I have an actual project for which I need a tool before I pull any more triggers...

We will be bringing the Recon tools back. Currently, we are at minimal staff and working hard to keep our Warehouse team safe and healthy. And to your point, we're focusing on shipping new products and service to keep our Dealers stocked and craftsman working.

Hello
How can I get notified by e mail, text etc. that you have recon tools listed.
I use to get notifications before but stopped about year ago
Thanks

They discontinued the e-mail notices about a year ago; there is no current mechanism to receive e-mail notices directly from the website (and the notices were often stale by the time they arrived in an inbox anyway).

Some people have set up browser plug-ins that notify of a change on a website, some people have set up other mechanisms.  I usually just check this thread daily and/or surf to the Recon site every morning to see what's up.  I think you can subscribe/watch individual threads through the forum settings, which would theoretically ping you when someone posts in this thread.

Thank for the reply.  Great suggestions. I will definitely log in every morning to see any updates.
I also would like to set up plug in /extension for Google Chrome for Festool recon page , but could not figure out yet, any suggestions?

I'm using one called Check for Change. 

Set some text you want it to monitor (I use the SKU), and it will play a sound when the text changes, and bring that page to the front.

Missed all the sanders this morning though, but that's because I was in the shower.

Unless you setup a monitoring service, you are going to miss a lot of things that pop up very briefly on the recon site. I have setup a script on one of my linux boxes to monitor the site, send me emails and log tools as they come and go. Attached below are this month's sales to date. Easy to see that popular items are usually only up a couple of minutes a week, so the odds of catching one with the random check is going to be pretty small (e.g. Domino 700 has been for sale twice so far in March, first time for 9 minutes, then earlier today for 7 minutes).

Happy shopping,

Dang someone grabbed a 2200 Metric for $675 this morning. It lasted a whole minute. This list reminds me I should've paid more attention in programming class.

I don't know if it's better to know you completely missed one or not.  I had no idea the routers had come up.  That's why it's nice to see a list of what is coming up.  I have been assuming folks are posting what comes up.  But makes sense some things come thru fast that most don't notice.

I haven't figured out when they start in the morning.  Sounds like they put some of the more appealing stuff up early in the morning and leave jig saws, CT48s, and planex's for the afternoons.
