I'm already booked in although if I can't find a chauffeur I won't make it.

If anyone near to Plymouth fancies going and will pick me up I will cover the cost of your entrance and all your fuel (both ways).

Hi
 So if you want to see the H.K55, H.K.85, ETS EC 125 and Syslite DUO they will be at this demo day  [smile] [smile].
Along with the core range. If you can come it is well worth the registration fee and lunch is included  [smile]....along with some 'swag'
Hope to see some of you there

I'm still hoping someone will fancy the trip all expenses paid.

Any takers please? You don't want to see a grown man cry do you?

Well I learnt something new today, Axminster actually still has a working railway station. Just booked my tickets so I leave Plymouth at 6:55 arrive at Axminster 09:05 and leave Axminster 18.03 and get home at 20:25. Longish day, but hey ho, needs must!

Phil, can you bring along the H.K85 with the grooving cutter please! If we have time could I see the OS-400 Set (specifically with the plunge base and depth stop) please?

Leave on a diesel and arrive on steam? That's a long way for a short trip, do they go via Bristol?! I'd have given you a lift Ed, wrong direction unfortunately, not going to the thing either like, but you know what I mean.
Tool list updated to reflect knowledge :: hammer, screwdriver, one pozi bit, and another bigger hammer.

Actually that would be quite cool, but no diesels both ways, 125 from Plymouth and change at Exeter St. Davids and get a South West Trains (DMU I suspect) to Axminster, return journey the reverse. Taxis to the Skill Centre and back, all cool and probably less than I would have paid covering someone else's expenses.

Hi
 Ok, the van is packed floor to roof with the kit for the Wednesday day in Devon!! Looking forward to meeting all who view the Festool Owners Group and of course those who do not for a good day of the Autumn launch machines [cool] and of course the rest of the line up  [wink]

With a lot of tears and after a lot of pleading i had to return the grooving block to my colleague. However, i can give as much information about it as possible...........i will say it is a great accessory for the H.K.85 [big grin]

Halfway there now, just changed trains at Exeter. Nice trip so far, weather is good too (not forecast).

Another great day with Phil, and great to see some of the new tools. My favourite without doubt is the H.K 85 and in a famous line from Independance Day (when once again the yanks won the war singlehandly) I gotta get me one of these!

Really enjoyed the day and on my way home with a few freebies including another Festool Micro Systainer and a Festool pencil too.

My next few purchases are now sorted with the H.K 85, then the Vecturo kit, then the grooving block for the H.K 85.

@peterparfitt Peter, you want to get hold of an H.K 85 and the grooving block and do a review of that. This could be another game changer!!!

Hi Ed and other FOGgers who attended
  Thanks for attending and it was cool to put names to faces. The new saws are a real 'game changer' and a great addition to the overall range.
Hopefully through 2016 this type of event can be developed to be a regular again through the year.
For anyone who is thinking of attending one - I am trying to finalise a date for Sittingbourne before the end of the year and will post the date once sorted [smile]

Hi Phil, thanks for another great day, I believe everybody enjoyed it, sorry you lost your business cards, hopefully whoever took them realises and posts them back to you.

Knee held up really well until about the last 1/2 hour on the train (about 8pm) it began to become more than a little uncomfortable, but it was worth it, although once again I doubt my wife will agree, especially when the new systainers start arriving.

+1 big thanks to Phil for an excellent day; most informative.

I'll certainly try and make it next year, assuming you run another one then.

Hi
  This is something that I would hope will happen and I have asked about this so I will post back later in the year as to the potential.
