@Dusty.Tools - did you order these direct from Auer? How do you like them?
I’m very happy so far, really no complaints to be honest. If I lived in the EU I would highly recommend trying them out.

I wrote a review up on ToolGuyd:

Getting them to the US is a pain. I use my brother to forward them on from the UK but shipping adds 40% to the cost! But Auer will then refund the tax. They still end up being a good price when compared to the alternatives.

For 15’ of duct why don’t you just upgrade to metal duct and fittings? I understand why people choose PVC in full shop installations because of budget. In this case if you have that little distance to run, the cost of metal should not be prohibitive. I bought my supplies from Oneida.

Tough to get hold of non-locally available bits due to Fe$tool’s controls, but there are ways. Not the stuff for public forums as I’m sure the loopholes will be closed quickly if officialdom found out.

There are some eBay seller who’ll send internationally. Just keep totals (including shipping) below AU$1000 or you’ll get stung for import duties.

You could also set up an Auspost US forwarding service called Shopmate (prices are reasonable, but there’s no way getting around the cost of international shipping) which will give you a US delivery address. Buy online in the US, and Auspost will forward for you.

When the PS400 came out I quickly bought a Trion because I expected it to go EOL. It's the only Festool (that I own anyway) that was dropped in price. You can still buy it new.

As for the dust collection photo above, @Cheese ; is that with the Trion hood fitted in the front?

Hey @Rob Z - Have you ever looked at the Clifton shoulder planes. I have many LN planes and love them but I am not a huge fan of their shoulder planes. I have a few Clifton’s which I love.

Last week, I bought  a Lie Nielsen medium shoulder plane.  [big grin] The only thing wrong with it is that it's not the large shoulder plane. [scared]  I will order that next.  [big grin] [big grin]
