Managed to get a basically brand new HL 850 with the bench unit and angle stop off of eBay today.

Really looking forward to using it.

Just rebought a CT-Sys, which I had purchased over the summer but returned within the 30 days window.  Currently on a project where we have to run 3 vacs at once, and I didn't want to sit around and twiddle my thumbs waiting while the person borrowing my CT26 finished sanding.

Question for you guys, Do the CT26 vac bags work in the CT36? My mother-in-law got me these from Amazon and if I don't have to I don't want to give her the problem of sending them back.

Merry Xmas Everybody.

Santa came.......actually the wife went to the local Festool store. They asked her if she wanted a trolley [big grin]

She got me the 2 x ratchet clamps which I can use under the guide rails, and fit in the track saw Systainer, and the 4 drawer sortainer, which I am looking for ideas on at the moment. It is Festool part number 491522

Do any of you have this Sortainer, and what do you put in it. My current train of thought is to turn it into a drill bit/driver bit Systainer.

Picked up a TS55 and MFT/3 as a birthday/Christmas present to me. Got it assembled and squared up last night but only managed to get a couple test cuts in before dinner.  So far so good.  [smile]

C-18 - to see if Festool drills are all they are cracked up to be :).  After all, the sanders worked out well for me.

I saw the Festool UK has a free battery promotion.  Maybe if I luck out, Festool US will run the same promotion before 30 days from yesterday.

The PDC for me and an extra battery. I know the new batteries and updted drills will likely be coming out later this year, but I figured the PDC would not receive anything new with belt hook, etc... and I need the extra torque.

Well I have several and they all work better than the sanders I replaced them with - mostly DeWalt or Porter Cable.  Dust control with a CT-36 now vs a Fein before is definitely better.  I chalk that up mostly to Festool sander design, but somewhat to CT-36 HEPA performance.  In the sander case, Festool's "systems" approach is also an advantage.  I don't have experience with Mirka's sanders (just for instance) but I bought Festool rather than Mirka because I liked the systems approach.  For example, using a Domino with the CT-36 (my first two Festool tools) convinced me to give the sanders a closer look because virtually zero chips and dust got out of the Domino.

MFT-FX accessory kit for the tables I'm going to make (whenever) with the parf guide system that's coming sometime in a week or so.  Given that the kits are disappearing in England, I thought I'd pick up the last on that my dealer had while it was still there.

Ron, that's ALL..??!! [smile]  Seems to me you could stock up on all kinds of NAINA goodies and have them shipped back here! Clean up on reselling them here! (To idiots like me.)

Are you going to change your FOG name back once you get to the USA.!?

Was thinking about the FOG name, yea I'll go back to Sancho when I return. But I don't get things to resell them Jeff. I'm not a importer of exporter.
But I do have a quite a bit of hard to get and NAINA things I'm bringing back for personal use

I haven't pulled the trigger yet but strongly considering the Vecturo set and the OF2200 with the accessory kit.  It's going to be $2000!  Yikes! [scared] [scared] [blink] [blink]  I have an angel sitting on one shoulder and the devil on the other.  One's whispering in one ear to be financially responsible and be a grown up and the other saying in the other ear you can't take it with you, you deserve it, it's only money...  I wonder which one is going to prevail?
