Oil Applicator SURFIX OS-SYS3-Set - 498063
« on: August 21, 2019, 10:28 AM »
I am venting here, I love using the SURFIX but it sucks that there is not an kit for the 125mm sanders. Do you guys think a version for the 125mm sanders are worth Festool time to offer an alternative to the 150mm SURFIX kit?

I learned to use the Surfix with Jory Brigham and I'm 125mm all the time.  I purchased a 5-liter heavy-duty oil and a 10 pack the green and white pads.  Jory had us use the blue home depot paper towels to spread the oil and the finish is amazing.

$145 for the oil and $48 and it's the same price as the box and you get a lot more value!

We're all a little bit OCD...that's why we're here.  [smile]

However, sometimes you can achieve better results than the factory offerings. The Surfix box I packed up contains the original tin box with the applicator, a box of 5 each Surfix applicator pads, a box of 10 each vlies, a 100 pack box of 240 grit, a 10 pack of 150 grit, a 10 pack of 180 grit, 4 bottles of oil, a microfiber cloth, the instruction booklet and various other small bits & pieces including new oil dispenser valves and bottle covers.

You'll never get that much stuff in a factory offering.
