I got a newsletter indicating that Festool is going to release 3 new tools
in 2008 starting in late Spring.
Apparently 2 new routers and a SCMS. The German site shows the saw and it
looks to be pretty HD.
Also for our German friends is the new

WOW! Are they Lucky!
I believe this to be a flust trim tool.

There's some information about the flush trim router on The Wood
Whisperer, http://thewoodwhisperer.com/ . Look for the December 6th
BTW, I like this site (I'm not affiliated). It's got good basic
information for newbies and hobbyists, and the site and videos are
nicely done. All for free, no registration required, donations
: I don't have a video IPod, so I don't download "Wood Whisperer", but I
: do like the audio sister podcast, "Wood Talk Online".
You don't need an ipod. I don't have an ipod, but I watch the
"podcast" videos online, in my web browser.

I know. <G>
The whole point of my IPod is that I can listen to it while doing
other things, like driving, flying (when I'm the pilot), mountain
biking, or less demanding shop tasks, like finishing, thicknessing,
I don't really want to watch it on the PC. I also have tons of stuff
TiVo'd that "I never watch", according to my wife.
If I had more free time, I'd definitely watch them, but they go down
the scale (I could be working wood, riding my road bike, reading...
<G>), when I'm home.
I might watch the programs on a video IPod while traveling, flying
when I'm not the pilot, etc...
One of friends and neighbors is an anesthesiologist who works with a renown
heart surgeon. They have a high tech "sound cart" with a high dollar sound
system permanently mounted that they move from OR to OR.
He sounds a lot cooler than the anesthesiologist who knocked me out
today. (For real. I had a mesh put in to fix a rather large
Those eStone countertops are heavy!
He stank of cigarettes.
Ouch. Sorry to hear that ... hope you're doing well, and take care of
Funny how that, as an ex-smoker with a nose like a bird dog, there is not
much that is more revolting. One of my SIL's smokes and I can hardly stand
to be in the same room with her, although she's a real sweetheart otherwise.
Thought you were describing me for a moment.
As a recovering nicotine addict (30 years and counting), can tell if a
smoker has even been in a room when I enter.
I'm convinced that nicotine is the most insidious drug on the planet.
Only when I laugh, which in my case is often.... especially when I
visit Das Wreckische Gruppe.
Turns out the mesh doc put in, is the best part of a screen door... or
so it feels.
I'm told that Grolsch is a homeopathic cure for discomfort.
The smoking thing? What is truly disgusting is to see 15-year old kids
starting up. With what is known today, how could they be so stupid?
No shit, eh? That crap is starting to get close to a tenner per pack
around these parts.
a pack per day..that's 70 bucks per week..hell, that's a half ounce of
I can understand raiding your mom's purse for some weed money...but
LOL ... not a beer drinker, but that word reminds me of something.
Twenty something years ago, give or take, a spiffed up, Madison Ave
looking/talking dude came in the studio to record a commercial, or so he
said. What the flip he was doing in Houston, I have no idea.
Part of the track had this background, Gregorian style, chant:
"Grolsch,Grolsch..." ad infinitum, looped and drowned in $5000 worth of
We did all the music, timed it to a gnats ass, then he took off for NY, or
so he said, for the "real talent" ... I assumed he meant some kind of
vocals, but who knows?
Was handsomely paid, and promptly forgot about it.
... about twenty years later, I heard something familiar on the radio, and
it finally dawned on me what they were chanting on that backing track and
realized, finally, that it was a F)(*(&^ beer commercial we recorded!!
All that time I'd thought it was some kind of religious, new age, crystal
bowl meditation shtick/crap ... Hell, I'm coonass and wouldn't have known a
Grolsch from a booger hanging out his nose, but I knew all about Schlitz ...
live and learn.
