The Festool "Toolie" - RIP?
« on: August 12, 2010, 01:37 PM »
Seems to me that there was once a Festool "Tool" that included the necessary screwdriver and Torx bits to assemble/disassemble nearly any Festool.  My local dealer says he hasn't seen any of then in a blue moon.  Seems to me that it would be a very good tool to stick in a Systainer for just the times when one is on-site and needs just that specific tool.  Will there be another one available?

There was once a product called the "Toolie", which is what you are referring to. That product was discontinued about 2 years ago.  I think there was someone on the forum recently that said they had some.  I can't remember who it was.

They are available from Elliots Tools in the UK for about GBP13-50.

Down side of this knowledge is they don't ship outside UK, so you have to get a friendly limey with a Paypal account to sort it out for you! [big grin] [big grin]

Best bet is the UK e-bay route. That is where I got mine.

I found a couple, good thing too.

I already broke the 2.5mm ball end on one.

It was a square peg round hole situation though. [big grin]

I have a few that I included with an order from the beyond...

I specifically got them to offer up here, but didn't want to get too many, that would cause shipping headaches, nor get stuck with them if interest was low (I already have 2 for myself- very handy li'l guys).

Three are available, to be precise.  I will offer them up on the Classifieds once received (any day now).
The price is $25 (which is inclusive of their cost, plus a portion of shipping overseas), plus any shipping (should be cheap as heck).

Yep, sorry.  Been busy.  I replied just now.
