Bought a CT26 and a ETS EC 125/3 EQ along with a 50 disks of 150 & 50 disks of 220. My first Festool purchase.Was going to get the Midi but as it is for my woodworking shop opted for the 26. If I am happy with the CT26 I'll be looking for the Midi in the summer to use in the garage where I cut my sheet goods with a Dewalt track saw. Got tired of using ear plugs and having my hand vibrate to pieces.Purchased yesterday. Everything is on order, bought from a Festool dealer in a paint store about 7 miles from the house.

I just purchased a Workcenter.  Woodworking is a hobby for me and my "shop" is the garage.  As such, I like things to be small and mobile.  The Workcenter will compliment my MFT/3 and the Kapex cart I built.  All three are small, flexible and mobile.  Workcenter should arrive in a day or so.

You'll like your WC . I got mines loaded. So loaded I bought the stool to put it on as it became a hassle to remove from my CT to empty the CT.

You can always buy extra pegs like I did . Works great for the small shop

Glad you find it useful.  My hope is I can hang my sanders and then set a Carvex or TS on the top alone with a Domino.  Then share a pull-it and the DC hose.  I will get some extra pegs as well to hold abrasives and maybe a CXS if the pegs are big enough.

Looks like I will try it out next weekend….shipping is a little slow over here with Thanksgiving.

A UPS truck dropped off a whole bunch of stuff:



Guide rail FS1400-LR32 holes
Router OF 1400 EQ T-Loc
Guide Rail Stop OF1400EQ   
Edge guide   
Quick clamp FS-HZ 160
Parallel Guide Extension   
Cleaning set f tradesmen   
Guide rail FS2424/2-LR32 holes

LR32 Hole Drill Set is still in shipping and the parallel guide that would go with the extension was shipped as a Bessey bar clamp. The supplier is supposed to sending out one tomorrow. I am not sure how you mix those two up at the warehouse, but they did.

I picked up the December 1 release of the Centrotec Installer's Set and the new SysLite 11 Work Light today. Both look great. The SysLite is especially cool and seems to be a great improvement over its predecessor, both in terms of light quality and increased intensity.

My dealer, Marson Equipment (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada), had them in stock last week but couldn't sell them to me until today (Festool Xmas). Apparently they are well stocked if anyone in Canada is looking for one of both of these items.

Where'd you find the pica pen Mick? If I get one will shares in Ikea & Screwfix go back up since pencil theft will decrease 1000%?

Not a Festool ... a Metabo cordless recipro.

Got it really for immediate need and battery compatibility with other recent Metabo purchases.

I do believe the current best on the market is the Milwakko!

Festool are certainly missing revenue in this space!

Seems my Festool purchases come in waves.... Following last weekends Kapex 120 I reviewed a PDC 18/4 full set today.

Not used properly yet but it seems like a solid combi drill and the perfect partner to my CXS.

Next purchase will sadly not be festool..... But a package deal of 4 bessy K body clamps with 2 uni clamps thrown in has proven to good not to get while ITS in the UK have them I special offer.

I bought one of these for me and one for a bud.  Though I have 2 different Installer Sets, I think this is a nice bit of kit.

Not precisely today, but received on Wednesday the Long Life Bag for CT26 I bought from another FOG member for a decent price.  Bag seems exceptionally sturdy -- looking forward to popping it in as soon as I fill up the current disposable one, which shouldn't take long with the wood I'm about to hog out with the router.

I just got a great buy on an MFK700, brand new old stock from local dealer.  It's in the old syle systainer but I have an empty t-loc II to put it in.  I use the old style boxs for infrequently used equipment.

Went to my local store to get the CT26 but ended up buying the Midi and a Carvex jigsaw.
The Midi was on price crash for £279 and got it down to £252 if I bought the Carvex too, they even thrown in a free Festool polo shirt!
