Hello, all. I am Shane Holland, an employee of Festool power tools, and I am new to the forum. I was referred here by several forum members who recently came to visit our headquarters to talk paint, or should I say "paint talk".

I'm here primarily to learn from this incredible resource and from the professionals represented here. I'd also be glad to answer questions that you might have about Festool or provide support if you need assistance with an existing tool for those who already use our products. I promise I'm not here to actively sell you anything. In fact, I'll probably lurk unless someone asks a specific question about Festool. But, I'm here now if you need me.

Feel free to shoot me an email any time. I look forward to reading through the threads and learning more about the members and their businesses.

Glad to be a part of the forum.

Hi Shane,
Bit if a lurker myself when I get time.
Love the Festool gear, with various sanders {ETS150 RTS400 & RO90} & one of your CTL26 extractors - always looking for an excuse to buy more - in fact, don't really need an excuse really, just the dosh

Quality has never been cheap.

Welcome Shane, it's nice to a have rep lurking as a resource.

I will admit I have none of your tools, but I know they are top notch. My brother, a very fine carpenter, likes your tools so much, he buys your $300+ hats and gives them to me and our mother just to keep the free tools that come with them.

You are like a demi-god of tools.



Welcome from a mere mortal.

Bring the Fakir wallapaper stripper to the states.

It's possible the Fakir be launched in the US but I don't have a specific date or pricing. I'll post more information as it becomes available.

What's a Festool? I'm mean, come on... Fes up!

btw, welcome to the Fesum...

Sometimes I wonder if Festool had a forum, this place would be dead...
