I don’t own any Festool stuff, but I could see myself buying soem of their smaller ticket items IF I found one I really liked. If I were in the market for a palm sander, a tool I use all the time, I’d pay an extra $100 for THE tool I liked best.
Of course, I have limits to this philosophy…...which cap-out at around $100 :LOL:
No way am I paying $1300 for a miter saw. I’d have to deprive myself and try to squeak by with a $500 DeWalt. I definitely believe that their is a (price) point where a tool can’t get MUCH better. The difference in performance between a $80 Skil miter saw, and a $500 DeWalt is huge. The difference between the $500 DeWalt and the $1300 Festool would be unappreciable to a hack like me.
