In mourning....sort of
« on: March 02, 2007, 10:43 AM »
Well gents, I wasn't fortunate on the last domino, but, I have officially joined the cult family of Festool owners.  I picked up the Rotex 150, the TS55, and the CT33 last weekend and I still haven't cleaned up the drool. 

Slippery slope, here I am.

I hear that...
I too recently purchased Festool equipment....
Unfortunately I'm now eying' everything in the shop for a Festool upgrade. These tools are sweet!
How long before I become an official "Festoolian"

Let The Festool Festooning Begin :D

Welcome to the slope JP ;)

Those three tools will keep you drooling for a while. 

Maybe a Domino for your birthday and an MFT for Father's Day? ::)

Seriously, I started with those 3 tools and it is absolutely amazing what you can do with them.  My table saw is jealous.

Ned,

The wife was tolerant for the purchase I did make. The MFT would have cost me some of my hide.

Besides, I wanted to build my own GiNormous MFT, but I can't seem to locate the corner brackets online.

Jason,

Most folks seem to start with a 1080's brackets and long rails and add the 2m rails.  You'll also want the brackets that support the cutting guide rail, so why not just buy the 1080?  If the budget doesn't allow building the big one right then, you'll have a useful table until you can.

If you're bent on buying the brackets, I suspect you will have to call Festool's spare parts people.  I forget the number, but I mentioned it in the Notes on the MFS post.

Thanks Ned, that sounds like a plan I can definitely live with.
