Well, only some US firms appear to have an issue with some EU rules, using it as excuse to outright block access altogether.

FYI, we will honor current 2021 prices until 12/31, even for out-of-stock items. So, @imdking if you want another Domino XL, order now to lock in the current prices.

Most if not all Festool’s are more expensive in the US. And that’s before shipping and later tax..
You US folks buy from Europe the things you don’t get in the US, we do the same with things not available here. So what?


Speaking strictly about Festool, are there things available here that you cannot get there?

Snip

The covid19 situation this year did cut into my tools/ woodwork fund. I usually order from axminstertools.com while I'm in the U.S, and have those 230v tools shipped to Botswana. Then I travel to Botswana mid December, returning to the U.S. mid January. My ticket is usually paid for by September or October. But this year, I'm not even sure I'll make it there before the holidays.

It seems I'll have to just eat the price increase for next year. Can't win them all.

Thanks for the tip, @Shane Holland. I will keep that in mind.

Let's not turn this into a debate about EU vs. USA or the rest of the world intenet rules and regulations.

Sorry, it wasn't meant as a debate or even complaint. I am truly curious, being a bit naive about the actual differences. So many things are the same, yet others are very different.

Yup,  A civil discussion is fine. Unfortuantely an inflammatory post had to be removed.

Well, I don’t think most see this as something personal.
Me neither, it’s rather a reflection of members posting links to a dealer, instead of the official FT USA website, which I presume most world wide can access.

Just one note on that; if one wish to share and receive input from all members, use an official web page.

I don’t share the dealer(s) I buy from on here, except fellow native I come across discussing dealers and Festool products. Because most country specific belongs with an explanation to a post if relevant.
I do understand that many have the same dealers they buy from, and share as an automatic gesture.

Last, I appreciate Shane Holland’ contribution to the forum, and he is very welcoming, though his “Dealer posts” gets ignored  [big grin] So Festoolproducts.com or Toolnut.com are just names of “some shop” seen from Europe.
“The Stig” Yes, it is true, at least some part of it..

Guns and cheap Thinkpads.  [wink]

Rare Maglites

Oh, and the Canon photo printers and photo paper is like 3x cheaper in the USA but their ink is cheaper overhere   [big grin]

And stuff to repair electronics from Soviet origin seems to be better available in the USA

Are people just trying to find ways to get something started in this topic by interjecting hot button comments?

Sorry, I read over the part 'strictly Festool'.

I guess some parts of the CMS that were discontinued in Europe earlier or not at all (yet) in the USA? Although Festool parts service will still deliver you any CMS module in parts  [tongue]

So you can't buy the whole thing as a single unit, but you could assemble it from parts? That's a little silly, and probably not very cost effective?

Correct.

That's how some guys got the CMS saws up and running in the states, to my recollection.

I like to call it the Johnny Cash Special. ;)

That’s the current case for the bench mount for the HL 850 planer. When offered way back when, it was around $150…in pieces from EKAT it runs around $325.

I posted about this before, but it's the way I got my PS module for the CMS. In one of those posts is also the price I paid. Wasn't that much more expensive. But there are very few parts. The alu plate, some steel brackets and the rest is off the shelf materials like bolts, nuts, washers, knobs. I assembled it myself, used some Shimano anti-seize assembly paste. Buying in parts saced me the small plastic plate for the PS200  [tongue]. That thing that covers the area behind the anti splinter strip.
