  • Festool tools

    Do any of you fine woodworkers have or know of anyone who has any FESTOOL tools? I am in search of a new miter saw and the Festool Kapex has caught my eye but it sure is pricey. I keep thinking about how scroll saws vary so much in price knowing that those of you with the high end ones really stand by them. I would just like to talk to someone who has invested in a Festool Kapex. Thanks for your time! Connie

      We have several main club members that will buy nothing but Festool. They are a bit pricey. The only thing that interests me is the zero clearance rail system for cutting panels.

        A couple of my friends are Festool fanatics. They sure are nice. One friend is such a collector that he had a demo in his workshop with the rep from Festool.

        The thing that impressed me was the vacuum system that hooks up to all the machines. You can sand right in your living room with no dust.

        A carpenter friend who was commenting on the Kapex said it was dead on and when you are working in a 3 million dollar house Festool was worth every penny.

        If you need a contact let me know.


        PS. A kapex went up for sale recent on Kijiji at 1300. Retail is 1500 in Canada so they cetainly hold their value.

            SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

            Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

            Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

            Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
