To each his own.

For me, dust collection with the few power tools I have is an absolute necessity (for my health and for my family’s health and for the cleanliness of my shop/house), so I’m starting to slowly add some Festool tools to my shop. It isn’t something I’m going to do quickly, by any means, but I think it a worthy goal – I saved up for most of two years to be able to afford the sander and dust extractor I purchased last week.

It all comes down to priorities. I’d rather spend my money on Festool than on granite counter tops in the kitchen or $7000 worth of upgrades in a new car or another hunting rifle or a boat.

I certainly don’t think having Festool is going to make me a better woodworker. But the convenience and safety features of Festool make my woodworking experience more enjoyable. So to me, the cost is worth it.
