    I agree with Paul's post but I'd ask one additional question: Is the motor really hot when the OT trips? There's always a possibility that the OT device is tripping in error.

    If it's...

    I had an 18V DeWalt hammer drill but when I went to the new 20V tools I bought the plain drill. I use a hammer drill so seldom that I can use my plug in (corded) hammer drill when I need to drill...

    I have the non-XL and love it. To my mind, it's the only really unique Festool tool. I use it on just about every project I do.

    Very nice. Do you make your purfling or did you purchase it somewhere? If you made it, how did you make it? It's difficult to cut stringing so that it's even thickness all along.

    If you use felt, glue it to some cardboard and then cut the cardboard to fit. It'll be a lot easier fitting to the drawer that way and the felt will stay flat. Plain felt has a habit of sliding and...

    Here's a couple of pictures of the Freud bits I bought, just FYI. It's been a long time so I don't remember what I paid for them.

    The problem with buying individual Forstner bits is where to store them. When you buy a set you usually get a box that they fit into. (Of course, I suppose you could make a box).
