Have any UK members had dealings with a internet retailer called Klium? They show the 491145 as available in 6 days.

If they don't do over overseas shipping, I would be happy to pay someone in the UK to buy a couple of these and post them to me.

If I understand correctly, the one cord option suggested is to use the plug-it cord that is now available and make pigtails (short power cords) for the Festool products, like sanders, then use a commercially available connector (where there are several options) to connect to the power cord along the hose.


For me, that make sense as a way to have 1 cord and not have to modify the Festool products.  However, I like not having even a short power cord connected to the Festool hand-held power tools.  For example, my sanders are all Fesool and sit on a shelf.  I would not want power cords handing out from all of them.  I would prefer my current setup of 2 cords with the Plug-it going to the end of the hose and the standard cord 12 inches shorter.

If there ever was a noa discontinued product that would give me the tool end of the Plug-it, I would be very interested in knowing the product number so I could keep an eye out for it.  Thanks.
No, I'm thinking just one pigtail that you use if you need to. Putting a pigtail on every tool would certainly be annoying!

You will need to find someone overseas to get one for you.  Yes they are 16ga or least the one I purchased was.
