Festool C12 Drills on Sale!!!! along with 150mm Sanding Discs  


Now that the new Festool lithion ion drills are out the door Festool is clearing out the C12 Drills in preparation for the L-I version of the C12.It's a great chance to pick up a Festool drill with its offset, right angle, Centrotec and regular key chucks at 15% off!! ($301.75 for the basic kit and 399.50 for the full kit!) As far as we know the only difference between new and old will be the lithium ion batteries and unless you use a drill daily IMHO the longer battery life of the L-I drills isn't really important. We have used our C12 for years with no decline in battery life - we of course don't use it as much as a pro-carpenter but I certainly don't have an incentive to upgrade. The C12 batteries recharge in about a 1/2 hour, last a long time, and the closed handle drill is compact and protects the hand in use. Supplies are Limited!!!

In another clearance sale Festool has introduced the new "Multi-Jetstream" for all their 150mm/6" sanders which improves air-flow and dust-collection by the addition of another set of holes. This just applies to the 6" models. The new and old pads, sanders, and sanding discs are both backwards and forwards compatible. Over the past months we have now switched to the new parts but we still have a lot of the old sandpaper in stock. All the old stuff is now available at 10% off. If you own the older style sander this is a great time to pick up paper, and if you have the new sander or pads - the old paper will work just fine. With the old sanders when your pad wears out you can replace it with a new pad and get the full benefit of even better dust collection. Why Festool needed to improve their already great dust collection I don't know but they did and as a dealer we just go with the (air) flow.
