Beforre the pandemic, I was getting all the "new" recon equipment available but have not received anything in well over a year.  Should I re register or how to get kick strated again?  Have bought a few items here and they are just as good as new to this middle skill hobbyist.  Also, I see talk of something called Slack app.  What is that.  TIA

Festool stopped sending e-mails long before the pandemic.  The e-mails were next-to-useless anyway, since the items were almost always sold before the e-mail link could be read, and sometimes before the e-mail even showed up.

The best place to start is festoolrecon.com/collections/oneanddone.  This lets you see what's in the queue for the day or the week, depending on some arbitrary something or other.

I've added the slack channel to my slack instance, since I use Slack for work already.  There are only one or two items that I'm still keeping an eye out for, so it's not as of much use to me, but it's still nice to see what things are going for and how popular they are.  Other people set up a local auto-refresh tool or other notification for themselves.  At my most obsessed, I would check the oneanddone page first thing every morning before I got out of bed, and try to time my morning routine around a tool that was in the queue that I was waiting for.  It's sort of a sickness...

I'd imagine in a month or so, Festool will run "wide open" with their Black Friday Recon where you don't have to wait for a queue to be able to purchase an item.

There WERE lots of things in the queue today, but it's shrunk considerably, and in a short amount of time.  [eek]

Busy morning for sure! I tried to grab the ETS but it was gone in less than 25 seconds.

Drills, angle grinders, and Planex sanders are the momentum killers of Recon  [big grin]

Hey squall_line...did you get the file?

Anyone know when the Black Friday deals typically drop? Is it literally on Black Friday or usually before by a couple days?

My best guess would be any time after Wednesday next week, although it could start before then.

The only real difference between Black Friday and Regular Recon is that you don't have to wait for a queue for the Black Friday listings.

That said, while you may see a few gems, a lot of what you see for Black Friday will also be Planexes (Planices?), Corded Vecturos, and the like.

This thread has been pretty quiet since most of the watchers and posters are subscribed to the Slack channel, but I'm sure that @4nthony, @GoingMyWay , @guybo  and/or myself will do our best to post in here once Black Friday is live.

I appreciate the Recon posting updates that everyone makes.  I am happily stuck in the flip phone age so do not have access to notification by slack channel.  I would probably consider becoming a Mennonite if they would allow me to have a microwave and electric fan.

No annual black friday sale on the recon site? If memory serves me right, in years past the sale started a day or so before thanksgiving?  When did last years start?

Based on this thread, last year didn't have a Black Friday sale.  They've used the Black Friday listing method during some of the three- and four-day US holiday weekends throughout 2021, though.

Looks like it started overnight or early morning on Thanksgiving Day in 2019.

The Recon site was pretty much non-existent last year until Thanksgiving.  It seemed they started posting items on Recon about this time last year, so maybe that was their Black Friday.

To my fellow Americans, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.  To everyone else, I will show my British roots and say "Have a Good Day".

If today's queue is an indicator of what they had in stock, I can understand why they didn't post their Black Friday collection this year.

Well, not all drills, but lately they seem to be pretty common.

Probably. I'm still hoping I'll see a Vac Sys on Recon this year.

I got mine last month, so that's one fewer person to worry about competing against you to get it!  [big grin]

Today started off pretty well but we've now been stuck on several of the items since 10:30 AM when I left the house...rather disheartening as I thought there'd be a blow-out here for the holidays.  [sad]

I saw the T 18 drill up mid-morning, with seven items after it. Now we are down to those seven.   Were there any items before the T 18 drill?

The T-18+3 4.0 Set was the first item of the day today.  And the first since last week.

I can't remember exactly...there were 8 items on the 1st page and the WOW, angle grinder & Planex on the 2nd page. I guess I was just underwhelmed at the selection. I was expecting a bit more sizzle with the steak concerning the timing. [smile]
