SawStop Acquired by Festool Parent Tooltechnic

Festool Acquires SawStop

You may be asking yourself like we are, if SawStop was up for sales why oh why didn’t Bosch Tools simply buy them out when they were in a loosing legal battle over the REAXX saw which they are now forced to mothball the entire line. We can’t answer that one… Anyway it looks as though SawStop will now join forces with Festool under the parent company Tooltechnic Systems, we will update you soon on what that means for the future of the line but it should be a very smart alliance for SawStop. See the press release below:  (more…)

Festool, Drinking the Green Kool-Aid

Known for their innovative tools and “yep we’re very proud of this” pricing, Festool tools are definitely highly regarded among professional tradesmen. Several of our fellow tool bloggers have recently done some very detailed reviews and currently there are a few give aways on the latest Festool products we wanted to share.

ToolSnob – A great review on the new Festool Rotex 90 DX sander, but to warn you if a man could marry a sander apparently he would.

HomeFixated – They are running a giveaway on the new Festool T-Loc Systainers storage units (size 1-5). Also nice YouTube video if you don’t know what these are or how they work.

ToolRank – Here is a nice write up on the new 10.8v Festool CXS compact drill/driver also with a nice YouTube video.

Festool – Direct from Festool themselves you can enter to win a Festool RO 125 Sander and HEPA CT 26 Dust Extractor kit. Simply visit
