I don't know if people have seen this promotion, but my PC 5" orbital is
getting long in the tooth so I thought I'd take a trip to the green side.
Basically a Festool for $50 (I'm assuming I can sell the $50 voucher to
Leon for $49 8^)

Yeah, I had heard of this offer earlier this week and jumped in. Won't
ship until November, but maybe Leon will accept $48? (or because it is a
"limited edition voucher", the price could be higher 8^)
That's an outstanding price on an outstanding sander. It says "Out of
Stock" but Highland has them, complete with free shipping.
With the 10% discount on vacs and the $50 coupon, the sander is almost
free. (In some cases, it will be free.) I wonder what the actual T&C's
are on coupon are. Looks like it's got to be used between Nov 1 and Dec
31, which means you've got to be serious about buying another Festool
Tool soon. I wonder if some of the more accessory type items are
Does anyone have the Kapex CMS? Is it worth the $1475? Wow, I thought
it was closer to $1000... I'll probably get a LOT more bang for the buck
with another brand!
The smallest vac, the CT SYS HEPA vac does sure look like it'll be light
enough to move around fairly easily. When I use my RO125 at the club, I
have to bring my Fein along and that's not fun.
The Woodcraft disclaimer says:

any future purchase of a Festool tool, except for the PRO 5 LTD. Rebates
cannot be combined."
I think there was a tread on FOG saying that they were having a lot of
problems with them and that Festool wasn't standing behind the
product. You might take a look. They were in the $1100 range but
that was several across-the-board price increases ago.
Even the big ones are easy to move. The rear handle makes it sorta
like a hand truck. The wheels are big enough that it has no trouble
going up and down stairs, for example. They aren't heavy, anyway.
Santa dropped it on the porch today. Got some play time in with it and
then went to finish setting the knives on the jointer. I do like the new
Systainer design, it's sure a lot easier to use.
It uses the same size sandpaper as my other sander, so I'm all set.
I did find a hanging chad, though! Election time is near so vote your
conscience (and don't be afraid to write in "none of the above!")
