I have always looked at the Festool MFT (Multi-Function Table) as great little work table, but not practical for jobsite use.

But Timothy Wilmots' modified MFTC (Multi-Function Tool Cart) looks like an ideal way to transport both the MFT and your tools.

This March Festool will be coming out with their new Conturo KA 65 Edge Bander, a portable and simple, yet versatile edge bander system.

We have seen Festool Systainers modified to suit the different needs of its users, including being turned into a jobsite radio, or another jobsite radio, and I have even seen one turned into an air compressor housing. But just like what Festool did with their Systainer First Aid Kit, they have come out with their own Limited Edition Insulated Systainer Modification.

If you like the idea of the Festool Track Saw, but it just doesn't have a large enough cutting capacity for you, the Festool Universal Sword Saw might be the tool for you. Available in Europe, the Festool Sword is fancy track-chainsaw that has a total cutting capacity of 7-7/8-inch (200mm).

Since many of us already use our toolboxes as make-shift worktables, Festool went ahead and built a miniature worktable right into the top of a SYS-1 sized Systainer. With it, you can be sure to always have a workbench to go along with the rest of your tools.

The Festool Carvex Jigsaw was first introduced to North America back in March of 2011. It had a ton of really nice features, but the feature that caught my attention was the LED strobe light that could visually freeze the movement of the jigsaw blade. Sadly, about a month after it was announced, Festool pulled the Carvex and sent out a letter stating "...Late round testing in certain applications specific to North America has demonstrated that the current design does not meet the exacting standards that we demand of ourselves, and that our customers have come to expect..." ...
