I noticed nine items posted this morning, the first being CSX drill.  I could not find the Recon thread at that time so could not let the FOG world know.  I will remember now this is under "Ask Festool" tab.   For those waiting for the CSX, sorry. We are now down to six items.

I also noticed Recon is not the standard 25% off.  Looks like 20% now, with HKC at 15% and discontinued Planex at 50%.
  On a different note, having never used one, could the Planex be used in a pinch to sand other items like a wood floor?  I understand it is not ideal, but I am asking for a friend.

Yeah, 15% on the HKC, 20% on the Kapex.

Thanks to the slack notification I was able to score the Kapex this morning.  I’m often still asleep when these deals go live, so that was a very nice score.

Edit:  Got my ship notification today, for arrival Wednesday.   [big grin]

I had something similar yesterday. I grabbed an RO 150 yesterday. I got the slack notification at 12:24. My order confirmation is from 12:25 but it didnt come down from the recon site until 12:43. Thinking they must have had multiple available?


Order email confirmation came in at 11:27am Central. I bought it within a few minutes of it being posted to the Slack channel, and it was still showing available at least for several minutes.

I bought one and it still shows available. Maybe they are selling multiple ahead of discontinuing this model.

It's possible. The sander was active for almost 90 minutes. What was the timestamp on your order and what timezone are you in? I haven't found anything in the public-facing website data that indicates an available quantity.

Some stats from yesterday and today's Recon offerings. I'm kinda surprised to see the Carvex top the list but not surprised by the Planex. I'll be curious to see how long the Conturo sticks around this time.



And, fastest sellers to date*:



* 12/9/21 to now

I removed previous sales time from the Slack messages. It was based solely on SKU and more often than not, didn't have any data to display. I didn't think it was useful as-is. I'm working on a better idea that calculates sales frequency using a combination of SKU, product class (Domino, Kapex, etc.), and product type (Joiner, Saw, etc.). Based on the calc, I'll add text like one of the following to the message:

"Yawn. This tool is a Recon momentum killer. It's usually here for hours, if not days, at a time."
"Grab a cup of coffee, but enjoy it before it gets cold. This tool has been known to stick around for about an hour."
"Give it some thought, but not too much thought. This tool gets bagged in about 15 minutes."
"If you want it, get it. This tool usually sells in 5 minutes or less."
"It's go time! This tool is usually gone in 60 seconds (or less)"

The messaging is a bit more vague, but will hopefully convey a sense of urgency when appropriate.

Filtering out the duplicate signups, there are now about 80 people getting Slack notifications. Thanks for participating!

You have more than 80 followers, 4nthony.  My phone is a 3G so no slack for me, but I do follow you on FOG.  Looking at your times, I feel lucky to be able to have nabbed a 75 saw and 500 domino (among other things) on Recon last year.  Appreciate the info you provide us.

Discounts are now only 15-20%.  The Planex is 25% off, but a few days ago it was 50% discounted. I guess inflation comes from all angles.

I've posted my experience with certified refurbished Apple products before.  I think I only got a 5-10% discount, but everything comes factory-sealed, practically new, and I still have the option to purchase Apple's extended Applecare warranty if I want to.

If I knew that a 10-15% off Recon tool would come to me without a speck of dust and a 2 year warranty instead of a 1 year warranty, I might be willing to consider it.  My experience, however, tells me that I would be contacting Festool for missing parts as soon as it arrived, and probably have to clean out the Systainer, too.  To lose 2 years from the warranty on an obviously used and abused version of a tool and only get 10%?  Not nearly as likely.
