Default Cheapest I've Seen Any Festool

Over at another web site, a fellow posted the link below for a special on a Festool sander. Its going for one hundred, which includes sample disks, a systainer (sp?) and free shipping.

I test drove a Festool sander eight years ago and was VERY impressed, so, for the price of two average pad sanders, about thirty more than other disk sanders, or about the same as the Porter Cable heavy puppy, you can own one.

I bit the bullet and went for it. We'll see how it goes.

Festool 201234 "PRO 5 LTD" ETS 125 REQ Random Orbital Sander - New Festool

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

That looks like a great deal. I would order one but I have a Bosch 5 and 6 inch sanders already.

Lee see my reply to TomE's post about the same thing and you might change your mind. That is a smoking deal for a Festool tool. Thanks for the testimonial Kelly.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That sander is a spectacular deal, but I think I can beat it: I got this "Festool" brand new for just £15

This deal is making going to make a lot of woodworkers first time festool owners.... And I am now included in that, as I ordered one last night. I have always respected the quality of their tools, but as I don't make any money with my woodworking, I could never justify their prices. Overall I tend to stick with Bosch, and really like the ROS20 sander. I am excited to put the two sanders head-to-head to see how they compare.

I am curious to see where Festool goes with this type of thing next. I will be curious to see if this is a one time deal to get more people buying the more expensive tools (which the $50 coupon may indicate), or are they gradually introducing a line of less expensive tools to penetrate a deeper market?

Will be interesting to see.... In the meantime a bunch of us have a new sander coming next month to play with!

I'm hoping Festool will start competing for the market.
