Did I imagine that?

Pairing unconnected batteries from the button works very nicely.

Wow, the button gets better and better. .

Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: 2 different Festool power cords.???

I was under the impression that the more powerful tools running on 110v in the USA require a thicker cord than we have in 230v land, and that this thick cable could be a bit unwieldy for all day sanding. Hence those tools come with the lighter cord.

Obviously I can’t comment on how unwieldy this thicker cord is and weather or not the decision holds weight.
It certainly mocks the original design’s compatibility/ ease and of use.

Speaking as someone who holds electricians as masters of both science and dark magic, I do wonder why the two cord thing exists. I'm in one-cord-land and never have I wished for a marginally thinner lead for a smaller tool. If anything, I'd rather have a heavier gauge plug-it cord that would satisfy even their larger handheld machines. Festool may save pennies on thinner leads, but surely that gets knackered by having to manufacture the two sets of fittings, tracking inventory and suchlike. I'm sure they know best  [big grin]

Haha, @Svar You hit the nail [big grin]

Then, I agree with Alex and Cheese, there’s something to learn and to re-fill knowledge in a constructive polite discussion if one dear and have time to read.

So as the English says: Keep calm and carry on.

Give it a rest guys. You are worst than a republican talking to a democrat.

Why would you want to stiffle a polite discussion? You can't handle two people having a different opinion? You're not required to click on the link.

Both Coen and DeformedTree seem very well versed in their own systems. Since this subject has come up multiple times before here I find it interesting to read about and try to understand it better.

Err...yeah...umm...


So this two cords thing is still a gormless idea in my opinion.

I don't want to derail the thread, but what spacing did you use for your french cleats?

If you need 3-phase you just contact the power provider and that becomes installed.

Then you get the 207 phase-phase voltage? What do they charge to install that?

Overhere grid companies now charge about 300 bucks to screw in the two missing fuses if you have a single phase connection. (99% of them being wired 3-phase to the home, but single phase to the meter).
