Festool 2013 Tool Catalog

Festool 2013 Tool Catalog

272 days ago by libraryman | 22 comments »

Though not a tool in the strict sense, the Festool 2013 tool catalog has provided me with hours of interesting speculation and tool comparisons. I should state from the beginning that I do not own a Festool and will probably never be able to afford one. The power tools I have been able to afford are the reason I love looking at the Festools. Whilst my power tools do an adequate job, the lack of vision by their manufacturers provide a sad “what might have been” comparison with the Festools. T...

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

Just in time to make my cat happy - awesome festool catbox eq

286 days ago by glen | 21 comments »

Well, I finally got my festool TS back from the recall. The people at festool were kind enough to include a free baseball hat and this amazing new festool catbox eq. I’ve used several other catboxes before, but this particular one shines. Our kitty, Peter (aka spiderman), is presently getting over an injured paw, so this catbox really perked up his spirit. The box comes with a standard brown cardboard finish, is about 1/8” corrugated material, has privacy flaps that open on ...

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

Best Circular Saw I have ever used....

1516 days ago by Chris | 18 comments »

We purchased the TS 75 Plunge Saw a few months ago after another regular circular saw fried on me again. I am not a contractor or a woodworking professional; but, I do expect things to work for more than a couple of years. I chose the TS 75 after being fortunate enough to use a friends TS 55 to rough out the pieces for a couple of book cases. Power:The 75 has plenty of power to cut my sheet goods and rough lumber to usable dimensions with lots to spare. Accuracy:With the included tra...

If you were only going to own one sander, this is it!

If you were only going to own one sander, this is it!

Over the last couple of months both my palm sander and ROS have bit the dust; of course they were about 8 or nine years old. I received this as a fathers day gift and boy am I glad I did. I decided to try out the claims I’ve heard regarding the efficient dust collection and life of the paper, not to mention the speed that it smooths a rough surface. A couple of months back I picked up a Big Leaf Maple slab and had done nothing with it; You can see the rough saw marks in the first pi...

My FIRST Festool-

My FIRST Festool-

1152 days ago by japanesewoodworker | 14 comments »

The last random orbital sander I bought was from a retailer known as ‘Handyman’. (circa 1960’s) This Festool ETS 150/3 EQ is an amazing machine. Its does not even feel like the old Black and Decker that it replaced, of course that was 40 years ago. From the electronic speed control to the internal dust extraction system this the BEST random orbital sander that I have personally handled. When combined with the Festool CT 36 mobile dust extractor the combination of the the...

Ya Hoo  Time to sand

Ya Hoo Time to sand

1439 days ago by lizardhead | 13 comments »

How can one real good tool be so much better than the next best. Festools 150/3 is such a tool. I was told that sanding is something that you do to every project you make, so it makes perfect sense to spend some money here and get the best you can. We are not talking about the difference between Rigid & Royobi, which are throw away tools, Festool has thrown out the cost factor and made a tool that does it’s job with astounding results.

Get One If You Can!

Get One If You Can!

224 days ago by cstrang | 13 comments »

Ive had the track saw for a while now and I must say I love it… as some of you know I am a bit of a Festool junkie, I cant speak for other brands of track saws as I havent used them, but this one is great. Everything from cutting sheets of material to cutting a countertop on a mitre with no chipping and actually have it work on site! It is also a great time saver for cutting long angles without having to jigsaw and router them you can just lay the track on the workpiece, cut and done. I...

Cool FeaturesVariable suction control.Built in tool plug for automatic start when the tool is turned on.HEPA filters. Dust free bag change. There was ZERO dust in the case when I chan...

Excellent Drill/Driver

Excellent Drill/Driver

2337 days ago by Chris | 9 comments »

This drill was Christmas gift from my wife this past year. My previous cordless had given up the ghost back in November and I had been grousing about have to use the corded drill all the time. We debated about the merits of 14v vs. 18v vs. 12v? for a while when I told her to pick what we could afford in the budget. I will admit I had my reservation with regards to a 12v drill; I don’t have them any longer. The drill comes with the case (systainer), charger, two batteries, Centrotec ...
