OF 1010 I hang a lot of doors and have been using my OF 2200 route the hinges while it does the job I think a smaller router will make my life easier  but i don't do it enough to justify buying a dedicated hinge router  .I Also ordered the LR32 system as I have been doing a bit of cabinet making lately  and again hopfully this will make my life easier  and help me expand the making boxes with doors side of my business.
@Robert James Ross I use the little Makita RT0 700 trimmer with a plung base for door and jamb hinge fitting, works a treat and is not too expensive.

MFK 700 EQ set.  Love it compared to my Bosch Colt!
Going to order the 0 degree base and modify it like Paul Marcel did.  Wonder about taking the base to a machine shop and see if they can cleanly do it with a milling machine.

I was going to wait to get these but it seems most practical to just get the gear now so I can get the practice using it when I have extra time the next 6 weeks.. I plan on using the MFS as squaring device as well a routing aids that means I can save money on the fancy squares people are buying..

Well I was... Still might...
But the one thing that was hard was doing narrow work.

I got it from Amazon.de along with a bunch of small stuff like Metabo 1/4" (centrotec style chucks), and the Kress drills.

I'm not getting sick, I just added the 5m 36mm antistatik hose so I can use the OF 2200 with more effective Dust extraction than my 27mm hoses would offer, I was on the verge of getting the CMT 36 HD because it comes with the 36mm hose, but being only 3.5 meters I don't think I'd get very far when doing those huge arcs with the MFS setup I can see connecting 4 sections 400 x2 +700+1000, hey I'm getting dizzy/nauseous  :-X I think I'm gonna

Ordered the fine tooth blade, Panther blade and FSK 250 rail for my HKC 55.
My power tool retailer has organised an demo for me with the Festool rep next week to have a play around with all the 18v drills.

And so the journey to the dark side truly begins....

New to Festool, and while it wasn't today, it was within the last few days. I purchased the TS55REQ with LR32 Rail, CT Midi, OF 1400 with Edge Guide, and a pair of quick clamps. Of course, am now trying to figure out how to sneak in the purchase of the LR32, MFT/3 and DF 500 past the wife...

@copcarcollector - I can already tell!

@Knight Woodworks, some built in cabinets and bookcases in our den. And the lady of the house has already started planning for custom closets thoughout the house, though those may take a back seat to the wet bar in the basement.

@dalep - yeah, I keep visiting the website and watching all these great videos; I suspect it's only a matter of time before I justify the cost on the tools as a "long-term, dividends paying investment that I'll save me money immediately"...

Let's see how that plays out! Lol

I just bought an additional VL extension for the CMS GE I just received cause i felt it need a balance to the outfield table, and being a little blade shy I want to put a little more distance between me and mister sharp..It will also be needed when I'm going to be ripping some 4 meter long stock in the next couple of weeks.. I also bought the mandrill for the template work with the OF 1010

I ordered the extra VL extension today as well , just got to remount / replace the switch as its in the wrong place

Another new guy here. I have been lurking on the site for a while. Bought a ct 26 and ro90 a couple weeks ago to refinish my front door. My wonderful wife got me the carvex for fathers day. I decided those need some company, so off to woodcraft today to pick up the mft/3, fs 3000 guide rail, and ts 75. Ordering the ts 55 req with the holy rail from toolnut tomorrow. My local woodcraft wouldn't swap out rails. Good thing toolnut will help me out.
