Thread: I still feel the same

    I still feel the same

    Iíve owned a Festool domino 500 for a little over a month. I donít feel any different, was expecting a bit of euphoria. Maybe if I take it out of the box.

    The euphoria doesn't come until you add from Festool: 4 sanders, a dust extractor, SCMS, track saw, router, beer cooler, t-shirt and baseball cap. Then and only then will your life and workshop be complete; that is until the next green rollout.

    I will not guarantee you euphoria, but it's likely that you'll enjoy the tool once you use it. Get crackin'!!

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    You must have got a defective one, send it go me and I'll make sure it's disposed of properly.

    I just felt the euphoria with my brand new Festool track saw cutting melamine without a chip out to be seen.

    I got the same results with my Makita! Resulting in even higher euphoria because cost a lot less

    All kidding aside - - there really is a good feeling picking up and using a very high quality item.

    I really enjoy using my Starrett square.

    Enjoy your new Festool!

    My kind of guy! I have a Veritas block plane, 4 Narex Richter chisels, a Noga mag. base and Mitutoyo dial indicator, all NIB. Someday, but maybe not as I'm 77.

    How's your wallet handling the new acquisition? Maybe that's whats putting a damper on the euphoria.
