I have only had a play with a sander and all I can say is what a brilliantly made machine. Well balanced, very little vibration coming through and low noise. If the scroll saw is anything as well made as this you couldn't go wrong.
Festool are the tools that many professionals love.
They are amongst the best of the best.
I just looked at the Festool router in a catalogue and it is almost double the price of the DeWalt 625.
It is designed to be used one handed as well leaving the other hand to put the kettle on.
No experience with Festool line.
Scroll saws, I have 2 of them. A little Delta 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw, was my first one. I up graded to the Excalibur Scroll Saw model EX30.
I do a lot of scrolling and blade changing is a key factor, also threading the blade through the work piece is another inportant thing to look at.
I went ahead and bought the Festool jigsaw, the barrel model.
It came yesterday and I tested it today. All I can say is WOW. I set up a scrap piece of birch 3/4 plywood (not baltic or finnish). Drew a random curved line and it followed the line like it was glued to it even around the curves. Same thing with a straight line.
