    I find it quite therapeutic using hand tools sometimes

    CTL Midi - £280
    OF1400 - £440
    TS55 - £380
    2 1400 rails - £98
    FS Sys/2 kit - £120
    Rotex 150 - £460

    And If someone says I should have waited for a sale, I haven't done any stupid spending for years. Well, that's what I tell myself to justify it.

    On the plus side, It drops my taxable profit, so I save some money there:D

    She's going to rant if it was a £50 tool or a £500 tool, so why not spend!:D:D

    I do too. The speed of the power tools is nice, but using hand tools to create the same thing is more enjoyable.

    I wonder if they are better, they seem a very similar design too Festool. I went for it because there seemed to be a huge range of Mirka sanders, but with Festool it was more simple. I needed something that will be good all-rounder.

    I've got all the festool I need but today I bought some bluetooth ear defenders so I can block out the whine from the CNC, angle grinders and sanders and still hear 6 Music. :):)
