They just discontinued their half sheet finish sander and the rotary sander.  I’d also stop everything to drop $$$ for a brand new 110v AEG/Holz-Herr belt sander with Festool written on it, but I’m certainly not holding my breath. 

Seriously though, slap a Festool battery on the really awesome variable speed Fein die grinder.  If you need a marketing angle, just position it against Foredom or Proxxon and say a bunch of cheesy stuff like “power unmatched” or whatever.

A dual SCA 8 battery charger would seem like a logical addition with the current Festool push for cordless tools and it would be especially helpful with the TSC55 REB.

A big +1 for this item.

A range of cordless tools that utilises the the CXS 10.8v platform. Utterly bewildering to have only a single type of tool for a battery platform.

Festool is not as big as other tool manufacturers. I doubt they even have 1/10th the sales of brands like DeWalt, Makita, Metabo or Milwaukee.
This.
Plus their philosophy is to make one tool only when it can be in some way special - and make it "right/perfect". Cost be damned.

Now thinking of it, the original CXS was a "wondertool" back when it came out during the NiCd era with its special battery shape to allow good performance in a very small package for the time.

Today, I am confident Festool would not have developed a CXS-type tool at all as the mass market is flooded with adequate up to excellent tools in the category using cheap high-amperage LiIon cells. I am sure the CXS volumes are quite small and it is kept only because there is a historical market for such a tool.

Are the BS 75 and BS 105 NAINA in 110V?

Maybe I’m wrong  [jawdrop]    but I think I did a search and couldn’t find those sanders in anything but 230 volt.  [sad]

And unfortunately the 230 volt version is NAINA.

I see my post could be misunderstood in a way that the belt sanders are available in 110V but not for you, but no, only 230V [oops]
You need a sparky to tweak your home Cheese, then a fair amount of $ and it’s away from the other side of the pool.  [wink]

This^.
For the people working at home it might not make much difference but on site it would be really helpful.
