I was in this same dilemma a couple years back and found a guy selling a festool vac and sander at a couple hundred below retail, either unit had never been used so I bit the bullet and started off the Festool addiction since then I purchased the saw, domino, router and table all threw CL at considerable discount. The vac I had to send in for repair at no charge to me so Festool stand by there product. So lets talk about the sander I have the 150-3 5inch sander which I absolutely love due to the vac system. As far as hand fatigue if use for long periods it like any other sander. But it twice as fast as any other sander I’ve used. This is a orbital sander and will leave orbit sanding marks if your not careful, do not over pressure the sander let it work for you and results are great. With all this said let talk price these tool are not cheap by no means even buying them use but I’ve paid them off with commission jobs in no time flat. The domino cost me 850.00 with the systainer’s full of dominoes and cutters. I built one large piece of furniture and got all my cost back and then some. The table and saw are off the charts with unbelievable precision with the smoothest cut, even in plywood. I hope this help you with your future plans but let me warn you buy one and its a slippery slop my friend….BC
