No, it is just an image of the actual clip. The clip is clipped to the insert when shipping.
The clip fits on both sides, locks very solid. If I could have made my hack on the left side of my drill I would not have bothered though, I prefer the Bigg Lugg clip as it is a bit deeper and feels more secure when attached.

The new Festool clip is very good though, better late than never. It was the same back in the days when they wouldn't fit a LED when everyone else did, then they made that silly contraption and the same with the lack of belt clips...

Well, now it is here and the shape allows for clipping in a carabiner too so all in all a good solution from Festool. It is on par with the competition for being a good belt clip. :)

Henrik, that T18 is a very nice design, congrats!

Do you know if Metabo makes batteries for Festool?
I was just reading about Air Cooling battery tech on Metabo site.

Michael: I don't know who actually makes either brand batteries with the new series. Metabo does have a small footprint 3,1Ah LiHD in the line up and the air cooling technology is similar so they might be sourced from the same factory.  [unsure]

To keep in line with the thread: picked up a Domino XL700 after getting an OK on an offer for building windows. :)

TSC 55 Imperial XL - with 2 batteries and chargers... Holy cow... this is a really nice tool. I already have a TS 75, but it is often just too cumbersome/heavy/big to muscle around. When I bought it several years ago, I was doing some pretty heavy-duty cutting on a job. Don't regret buying the 75, but I don't often get it out, either.
Having the Imperial option is nice - and the cordless capability is handy. It certainly doesn't lack for power with the 2 18v 5.2 batteries.
I needed to cut into some mdf with formica-type coating, and wanted a clean, straight cut. It was absolutely perfect. In fact, the edges were so nice that I cut myself on the edges of the cut. I wondered where the blood was coming from on the table - I had a couple of cuts on my hand from the sharp edges of the cut.
Dust collection in the little bag was amazing. Very pleased...

Wow, that's a no-brainer... [thumbs up] if that was available in the US, I'd consider buying a Vecturo and put the Multimaster out to pasture.

Since I bought the HKC and now have Festool batterys, I ordered the PSBC420EB basic .  So now with the HKC, PSBC420EB, cordless Fein Supercut, and my Milwaukee 12 and 18V stuff, I'm pretty much cord free on the road.   [big grin]

Went to the Festool Roadshow at Brighton Tools and Fixings and "accidentally" bought the Domino XL to go with the DF500. I got a free Festool Fan hoodie in XL size. Bit tight for my Dad bod so free to any FOGers in the Sussex area who want to pick it up (Worthing)!

And so it continues.
MFT 3 full kit with CMS.
About to order the TS55 saw and CMS combo.
Made the mistake of adding up all my purchases as a cart on the website...bit of a shock.
Now I am feeling guilty and need to produce something worthwhile!

Ordered a Pro 5 form Festoolproducts.  Will replace the Dewalt sander that create more dust than a woodchippper.   Will have to replace the sticker with a ETS 125, not going down that imperial route:-)

A recon ETS 125 was my first Festool.  I ordered one  from Toolnut today along with an extra 18v battery and another roll of foam backed sandpaper.  I love this sandpaper, so far I've bought five grits.  It seems expensive until you compare how much per piece buying from hardware or paint stores runs.

Ordered a pro 5 from Aldo couldn't beat the price, though I already have 3 other festool sanders and I won't really use this until I get back to the states next year, I thought why the heck not,

So I had to get a couple of boxes of paper (50) and while I was at it got me a 5mm entering bit and a 6mm brad point router bit so I can use 1/4 shelf pins with my LR 32 (which I won't use until I get back home)
