Festool Purchase Disorder - (FPO)

I'm anxiously awaiting my order from Hafele Canada. On the way is a Domino, MFT 1080 and a TS55. I'm getting a little impatient, but I can't wait for the new toys. Unfortunately I was informed that the starter kit for the domino is back ordered, so I may have no use for the tool for awhile. It will give me some time to incorporate the MFT into my outfeed table.

I've been lathe shopping as well and hope to order a new Nova next week. I just have to decide between the 1624 and the DVR. It's looking more like the 1624 right now. Electronic speed control is a ridiculous luxury for the amount that I turn. A lathe is a ridiculous luxury for the amount that I turn. My Craftex 14" lathe hit Craig List today. I hope I can uload it. I can always give it to my brother.


FPO - Festool Purchase Disorder (FPD), is a devastating illness that can result in considerable social and economic disability for both afflicted patients and their family members. FPD is usually treated with a combination of specific behavioral therapies, called exposure and response prevention, and medications. It is important to note that many psychoactive medications are not likely to help FPD symptoms. That a number of partially-effective drugs have now been carefully evaluated. The treatment, for most FPD patients should involve the combination of behavior therapy with medications. Limiting afflicted patients to FOG Forums has proved ineffective and proper budgeting and sacrifice in order to provide a acceptable levels of complimentary purchases appears to keep FPO at manageable level.
