Bottom line:

If you like the technology, can recoup the cost and think you will use it enough, then its a no brainer. But I would pay attention to what the one poster who sold his said. You’re talking about a dedicated tool that does one thing, so you have to approach it with that in mind.

I agree with the other posters that Festool is too expensive tool for the average ww’er.
I can afford one, but I would never shell out $800 for a track saw or $1400 for miter saw or $600 for a vaccuum or
45 bucks for a storage box?. I just can’t see any way their miter saw or router can be THAT much better than mine to make it 2X as expensive.

I do think they have awesome DC and that’s important.

I also sense a certain snob factor, but that’s another thread.
I love the skit Stumpy Nubs did on Festool. Hilarious.
