Not a Festool but a Fein FMM350Q MultiMaster because my 250 quit on me and I can't repair it because I can't figure out what's wrong with it.

Unfortunately it looks like I have to look for a new RAS too, because mine decided to quit on me right in the middle of a pretty large job. Well, it already had 15 years on the clock. Bit in a pickle now, Rotex won't do it, and the angle grinder has no DC. And on top of that, RAS is very hard to find now it's discontinued. OH Festool, WHY???

@Cheese - Did you have to acquire this from overseas or were you able to buy it here as replacement parts? I came to Festool too late but this tool is a recent fascination for me.

Finally I got the PS-300, TS 55 and even lucky enough the TS 75 module to go with the CMS-GE/VL tables. I’m thinking modifying one function with the TS saw in it.

It’s possible but it’s also possible they’re where they should be and you just don’t understand the reason. I didn’t on my first MFT.

First, Festool doesn’t consider it necessary for the rail to be precisely parallel to the columns of holes. The holes are just for passing clamps through but you can change the alignment if desired. However, since Festool doesn’t promise that the grid pattern is precisely square I wouldn’t bother.

What threw me was how sprung the rail was in relation to the front rail support pin. I had to pull the rail to the left to get it to fit over the pin. I was sure that was a factory mistake so I loosened the bolts fixing the rail to the hinge and then discovered that the slot in the rail is wider than the pin so the angle of the rail to the fence could vary a little every time it was it was set down.

To eliminate that variability the rail is sprung so that it is always tight against the left side of the pin. Just get in the habit of pulling the rail to the left and gently setting it over the pin. Avoid forcing it over the pin which will eventually carve a groove into the rail.

I went a bit crazy and bought a Ti15 yesterday. Body only, but after I've sold some of the accessories it came with, like the right angle adapter, I've only paid €15 for it. I couldn't pass on that opportunity. It came exactly at the right time, because I've got some custom designed furniture to make that will require about 750 screws. Let's see how it holds up.

TI 15 for €15!  [blink]...
I have one, brand new, never used with TI FX adaptor. Got it as a part of a deal with lots of FT stuff. Let us know how you think of it. I have not tried it yet, since no 15V batteries in my stock of FT..
I might just keep it then.. it’s still a tool.. [big grin]

Well, you got it for free then. Mine's heavily used by a contractor who'd worn out the batteries and now switched to all Makita because it is cheaper. Technically 100% but it was very dirty, stickers all worn and sprayed with gold paint. But I spent an hour cleaning it up and now it almost looks like new again, except for the missing stickers.  Used it to drill some holes today, no screwing yet. Drilling went fine. It's heavier than my T15 though, that surprised me. 

Btw, if I don't use a Festool I sell it off, costs enough, good to see some money back once in a while.

..That’s the thing..y’ I kinda-ish recently renewed my Makita stable with the new DTD 171 BL impact (still got my 10 year old, and still going strong) It is very very good - same features as the new TID in fact🧐, I even got the new 12V BL version for lighter work (above head work) So I am kinda covered. Think I’ll push the TI 15 into an ad.
Thanks for the heads up Alex [embarassed]

That makes sense. I was going off the dog holes. Did make the adjustment to align parallel with the holes and now it’s dead square. Cuts are super quick. Should have gotten it much sooner.

I turned my recently purchased Vecturo OSC basic by buying the OSC-AH/TA/AV-Set into the set version. I guess I made a rather bad deal by buying the Basic, the battery separately  and then addition the accessories but funds were low last month so it ended up that way.  I need the plunge base for at tricky self made jig I'll be making for security upgrade on the 85 year old doors that I'm doing in the coming weeks. I'm sinking som brass hardware into the teak surface of the doors and I want to make nice job of it. The Vecturo will also be useful for doing some remedial surgery on sections of the door that were badly repaired in the past. Teak wood is getting scarce and my thought is if the doors are going to survive into the future then it's time to do the refurb now. Otherwise they would likely need to be replaced in the next decade or so that would be a shame- 13 doors and lots of fussy details so the gear I've just bought will help save time and improve the quality of the work.

TS55 to replace my dewalt track saw... been planning on doing this for a while and finally pulled the trigger on the emerald version with the extra blade. I’ll post my impressions of dewalt vs festool track saw once I get some time on the new stuff.

RAS ‘cause it was on sale, and I’m a sucker

Planex Easy ‘cause it was refurb and I’m a sucker

Two more systainers to hold random BS

$250 worth of sanding media for the two new sanders that I didn’t actually need, ‘cause I’m a sucker

1400 mm rail, ‘cause I couldn’t remember what length my other two tails are, and I wanted the $40 off.

Thanks for keeping me in mind, but it's the 115 I was looking for, the 180 is too big for my taste.

And I've already found my replacement, had the extraordinary luck to find a used one at a tool dealer in my city, €175, unfortunately it came without the dust hood. But that was no problem because I already had one from my broken RAS.

Come to think of it, I hadn't bought a new tool in 6 years, but last 3 months I've bought 4 new used Festools and two others, I'm on a bloody shopping spree.

Not today, but yesterday(ish) I got the adapter to cut circles with the PS300; the Festool 490118 "KS-PS/PSB 300"
darn pricey piece of metal, although it beats routing the 20 circles D=250mm I want to make..

When I read that the CMS system is now discontinued, I went on a search for the modules I've waited on getting, mostly because of lack of funds and no pressing need. On the other hand I'm pretty heavily invested in the CMS system as I have all the CMS GE table add ons the Router module and the TS 75 module. So not to miss out on the last two modules I'm missing I just bought the CMS Mod BS 120. I'll get at decent selection of the sanding paper for at start 80 grit and 120 grit. It comes with the angle adapter so and a short fence, so I have found a very sweet setup for little money. I'm an occasional user but have lack of time when I do start a project. More tools give faster higher quality results, and that will keep me in working.

The Band sander module as a few extra add on that I'll get mostly there are a few different sizes the the drums handy  for shaping curved pieces. I'll also use the sander for grinding metal så will need to source a spark trap for the vacuum .

I will only be missing the jigsaw adapter table for the CMS system which I'll get in the near future.

I can see why Festool needs to discontinue products as the market changes but hope that they reconsider keeping the CMS system going.

I like the portability and the small size, easy to store, aluminium doesn't rust and although fiddly to setup in the beginning I have now mastered the setup procedure so it's pretty good around.

Boy do I envy you the CMS options you have in Europe. In the US, we only have the CMS-OF. I asked our regional sales rep if he had heard anything about the CMS being cancelled and he told me that all he knew was that the standalone version was being eliminated for both the GE and VL versions. If Festool Germany is eliminating the CMS for regulatory reasons, that's unfortunate. The router version is full of innovation and using the sliding table allows a lot of very sophisticated work. I'd actually love to see peoples' Festool shops in Europe....the methods of work seem very different from what I can tell.

   To piggyback on your post....my latest Festool purchase was actually a set of TSO guide rail connectors and they are impressive. Nice company and nice products.

Bad news about the buy it was cancelled by the Amazon.de seller so in this case the deal seemed to good to be true was just that false advertising on amazon.de for too low priced Festool.

Oh well I'll keep an eye out for the CMS MOD BS 120 but won't be fooled in this way again. The money isn't lost though I could have done with out my hopes getting dashed like this.

You can still buy the modules as "spare parts". I assembled my jigsaw module from 100% spare parts, hehe.

Curious how you use the jigsaw module. What tasks does it excel at?

See attached. When I was like 10-12 years old I made those with a fretsaw... but no way I am doing that now  [tongue]

Previously I also made a raster of thing aluminium plates with the jigsaw jerryrigged under the router module.

So you're using it like a scroll saw?

The reason I'm interested is because I have an extra Trion & Carvex either of which I could throw in the PS module. Since Festool has discontinued the item, now would be the time to make a move if it was of some value to me. I love the GMS-GE for function & portability and just wonder how/if I would use the PS module. I've ruled out getting the TS 55 module and already have a 14" bandsaw. I've not needed a scroll saw in the past and don't see a need for one in the future.

Just thinking out loud.  [smile]

I had to google that word. For this project; yes. I guess it's more economical to just buy a dedicated machine for that, but I like the wider cut here (used a thin jigsaw blade; the 1.4mm) and the guiding options.

I tend to want to own "the whole set" in most cases. But it was definitely a buy that is gonna be on the expensive side in €/hour used...
