Festool Giveaway

Congrats to our winner Carl Hardt!

I intentionally held off this announcement for a few days because I didn’t want anyone to think we were pulling an “April Fools” joke.

When I first started my woodworking business, I knew I needed to step up my game when it came to sheet goods. I looked at all of my options and finally decided upon the TS 55 tracksaw and a CT 26 dust extractor. That purchase alone was one of the best things I could have done for my bottom line. No longer was I tethered to my tablesaw for precision cuts in everything from plywood to MDF to solid lumber.

So if you’re anything like me in the shop, you know that the TS 55 and the CT 26 together make a KILLER combination. And thanks to our friends at Festool, we are giving this set away! Simply fill out the form on the Giveaway Page and you’ll be entered to win.

Giveaway is Closed!

    Awesome give away! After watching your review of the Festool and DeWalt saws I’ve wanted this set-up. Good luck everyone!

  5. Pinto April 6, 2012

    Marc, that’s AWESOME! Almost as exciting as the MegaMillions jackpot =)

    Has the TS55 replaced your table saw for most things, or only large and awkward things? I’ve been drooling over it (well, both, actually) but have had to put it aside for a few years.

    I don’t suppose the TS55 takes dado blades…

    droooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll that would be an epic gift pity i live in ireland :( really think a festool router ,track saw and mft can do everything a TS does and more especially for a small hobby workshop but still wants exceptional accuracy. do you think you could live without a TS marc????

  8. Rick April 6, 2012

    Very cool Marc thanks letting us have a chance at winning this awesome saw.

  9. Sean Rubino April 6, 2012

    I was looking at the different track saws earlier this year; the Makita, DeWalt, and Festool. I settled for a simple circular saw with two shop made zero clearance “sleds”, one for crosscuts and the other for rips. I can rip full sheets on the table saw now that I made a good sized outfeed table but the circular saw works great. It just makes a terrible amount of dust. The Festool track saw with the combined dust vac would make the task much Faster, Easier, and Safer. I guess that’s why the company name is FESTOOL. Good luck to all.

    WHAT A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!! This one has me STOKED!! I cannot tell you how utterly invaluable this tool would be in my small shop and to my development as a woodworker! Not to mention when I go to a location to do work and can’t just pack a tablesaw along for the job. I have actually been trying to scrape the money together to buy this exact package! I can only hope the woodworking gods smile on me and I can get my break into better quality, more efficient woodworking and the FESTOOL WORLD! Talk about a GAME CHANGING tool!! .:FINGERS CROSSED:. :-)

  15. David April 6, 2012

    I do not have any Festool products but am really looking at them, this would be a nice start.

  16. Jeff April 6, 2012

    I just purchased the TS55 three days ago. I have not got to really use it yet but I am looking forward to it. I would welcome another one in my shop, and I would make the CT 26 the king of the shop if I won. I always thought you had to have more money than you had since to spend the money on Festool! That was until I bought one. Now I plan to retire all of my hand power tools and replace them with Festool.

  17. Brad L. April 6, 2012

    Awesome giveaway Mark. I will be sure to enter.

  21. Josh April 8, 2012

    I purchased my first lottery ticket during that record jackpot last week with the intention of winning to enable the purchase of this very combo. I was surprised and still festooless after my numbers didn’t turn up. And now a second chance!!!

  22. Roy L April 9, 2012

    Come on mark, what about all of us not living in the good old USA. I’m sure Festool could be persuaded to ship the tools anywhere in the world.

  23. Bootheel April 9, 2012

    Count me in as well. Thanks

  24. Todd April 9, 2012

    I’m in!

  25. Roy L April 10, 2012

    Ok Mark , what I was really trying to say was. I’m sure YOU could persuade Festool to include the rest of the world in the give away. With your wit and charm I’m sure you could make it work.

  26. jim j April 16, 2012

    I’m thinking this Festool track saw would have saved me a trip to the emergency room for the rip to the tip of my left middle finger, 7 stitches, and being out of commission for about 2 weeks…

  27. Kamil April 23, 2012

    Awesome offer. This would be an incredible addition to my workshop. Starting out in woodworking is very taxing on the account with all the equipment to purchase, this would take a HUGE load off the account. Great of festool to offer something this big, not just a ‘10%’ savings.

  28. Awesome giveaway !!!!!
