Festool Update

Well, I see now how it can happen. You get one Festool product, and then like hitting your head and waking up with amnesia, you suddenly have 5 or more. I fell in love with the idea of the Domino and with the research involved in buying a tool like this, I was able to start looking into other tools in the Festool lineup. One of the things that drew me towards these products, is the dust/chip control. I'm happy with most of my tools and though some have had to be replaced by the Festool line, it wasn't due to poor peformance as much as they just blew crap all over the place and it just doesn't seem like a good idea.

Along the way, I looked into their dust extractors, circular saws, multifunction tables and sanders. All in all, the Festool list now looks like this:

DF 500 Q Domino
TS 55 Plunge Cut Saw
MFT 1080 Multifunction Table
FS 1400/2 Guide Rail
CT 22 Hepa Dust Extractor
ETS 150/3 Random Orbit Sander

I think I'm done for awhile. I'll post little tidbits on this stuff as I spend more time with it.
