« on: May 22, 2010, 11:12 AM »
I have beens using my ETS 125 for about a month now and it has been great, I also own a 6" metabo sx 450 model. I'm now looking to buy another festool unit just not sure which one. Need some suggestions on which would be the best route to go.
thanks

DX93 or DTS400. Both are great for getting into corners where the round discs won't fit.

Alot depends on what you want to use it for. Festool's sanders often have specific uses such as: Rough, Fine and intermediate stage sanding. For instance a good rough sander from Festool would be the RO 150. A good Fine sander would be the ETS 150/3 etc... What would you want to use it for?
PS300EQ Jigsaw - OF1010EBQ Router - DF500 Domino - RO125FEQ Sander - C12CE Drill - TS55EBQ Saw - CT22E Dust extractor - DTS400 Sander

Wish List: Anything not listed above in the catalogue.

The RS 2 E might be another fine choice.  Large and flat, it can fit into corners and still manage to sand an entire table top.

Let your work guide you...  as you begin to visualize your next big project, consider what sanding you'll be doing.  If there is something that your existing fleet of sanders won't handle well, that may be your next Festool opportunity.

Often trying to forcast your needs won't be as effective as letting your work point you in the right direction....
