Well, i’m not a festool fan boy, but came across one at a garage sale this weekend, tool mentioned above, fella used it on his drywall sander, so…...................
got it for a song, if i told you how much youd’ have a cow, so to speak.

anyhow, i spent an hour cleaning it up, blew out the filters, the hose, yada yada yada, drywall dust is just ugly, i’m in the const. biz, and i’ve hated it my whole life, its just like flour dust gets into everything.
Anyhows, got it all cleaned up, put a new cord end on it, and walla, works like a champ. had to order some bags for it, whoa, talk about pricey, anyhows, not sure why i bought it, figure it musta been the price.

ok well i down loaded the owners manual off the interwebs, and well, nice pamplet, but doesn’t tell you squat about the knobs, take down, ect. wth is that, it does give a great info in french, spanish and german i think.

While i figured out the knobs and stuff, it would be nice to get a break down of parts, just in case i need a repair, ect.

me thinks the ole gal will like it for the orbital sanders, she was a whining about how dusty it got, even on the down draft table, i kinda had to agree, it was a little dusty.

anyhowz. does this make me a festool fan boy. lol

happy monday

I think we’d all be bigger fans of Festool if the price wasn’t so ridiculously high. I actually took the plunge a couple of years ago with a ROS and a vacuum because of allergies to the dust, they work great but not enough to justify the price.

All I can say is congrats, sometimes you just fall into something. In my case that something is usually not so nice, more like a pile of dooky, probably from that cow you mentioned.

Now that is a manual, thanks for the link ,

as for price paid less than 30 bucks for it, had to temp the cord plug to ensure it did infact run, fella thought i was off me meds, lol. but hey, 25 bucks is 25 bucks, dont care who you are.

sure is quiet, and liked the dust deputy layout, but i have a DC in shop, this was for the old gal to sand her little things, and not have the big guy running.

thanks, and yeah, if price was a little bit lower, might have more of the green demos, but hey, use what ya got.
