Festool, tuner edition
« on: December 09, 2007, 04:00 PM »
What if Festool followed the pattern of Mercedes and BMW in having an in-house tuner division?  You know, for those customers for whom 510 HP just isn't enough...

What would the products of Festool-AMG be like?  One easy one--the TS 55 AMG (or TS M55) would have at least as much power as the TS 75.

Ostrich leather handle pads.
Rosewood lock knobs.
Zeiss safety glasses.
Kevlar wrapped plug-it cords.
REAL rubber wheels on the extractors.
A laser on the Kapex. ;)

And half seriously:

All Festool tuner edition models will arrive completely broken in (at least ten hours use), with a small plaque with the test driver's signature.

With velocity stacks/venturi tubes!

A gold-plated Boom Arm, or at least a shimmering metallic green-anodized aluminum swivel joint that won't warp like the plastic one does.

And a COMPLETE set of hose nozzle adapters so you could never be annoyed that you 36 mm hose cannot be used with any of your Festools.

Friends, family and Festools make for a good retirement.  PCs...I'm not so sure.
