An email we received from Woodcraft bids you to hurry and take advantage of the current Festool pricing before it goes up on March 1st. Apparently their already-hardy pricing will be bumped a tic to the tune of 3-5% on most of their popular tool line.

At the moment of this article’s writing, we’re not quite sure why that bump is taking place or if it’s just Woodcraft catching up with market realities. In any event, a major supplier is raising pricepoints — although for something like the RO90 Sander, going from $375 to $385 isn’t much of a big deal. If you were inclined to spend close to $400 on a sander in the first place, $10 isn’t going to dissuade you.

    The price increase is universal (at least in the US) and applies to all Festool dealers. Woodcraft and others are bringing attention to the increase to drum up last-minute sales.

    The $1.300 price on the Kapex seems like such a deal now, after the post a couple of days ago putting it considerably higher. Still a lot of money for a tool that will only deliver the quality of work the operator is capable of! It’s a saw, fer crissakes! Put the same blade in a properly functioning tool by any other maker and the results should be the same. Lasers aside, if you perform correct set-up procedures on your (any decently made) miter saw, the cut will be as good as you can make it, the only variable is you! Spending another $500-$1,000 isn’t gonna make your results better. Will it last longer? Maybe, but these tools are not super-prone to malfunction. If it is abused it doesn’t matter how much you dropped on the counter for it!

    BrownDogg77…..You are so right. My $150 Delta is extremely accurate, and it cuts finished good clean enough to do no sanding or finishing on it. In fact it is so clean and accurate I can finish trim molding on furniture and then cut the miters. It will probably out last me, and with the extra money i bought several other pieces of equip…and some stock to run through them all. And after their comments to TM, this is even funnier….. “Pleas make a correction to your post, …oh and send us a note saying you have done so……and 24 hours later we will tell you we are raising our prices….” and TM was only off by 13% and now they are raising by almost 4% which is above any inflation here in US but of course in the EU they have out of control inflation because of the Euro BailOut…….

    HAaa hAAAA hAAAA

    Festool makes outstanding tools. However their prices are still way too high. At the end of the day, they still just cut, shape, sand, and scrape wood.

    How many of you have actually USED Festool products for any meaningful amount of time?

    They are well worth what they cost.
