    First bit of green in the shop

    So, Last year several months ago, something came across my feed for a festool sander for 99$. At least that's what I think the deal was.

    Anyway, they way oversold their allotment.but said they would ship at some point. So I promptly forgot about it. Guess what showed up today.

    Not sure if it was a deal or not, but man is it green.

    I got one, I think you will like it
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Seems to work like a sander!

    but it also seems to do a much better job of extracting the dust while it sands than my bosch.

    Nice score!

    If you use abranet with it make sure to buy the special interface pads or you'll burn up the rather expensive velcro bottom - the hooks on it are to long for abranet (don't ask how I know.. I just do). At least that was true on the 150 series, I'd guess this is the same (and not worth the chance).
