What the….?!


If you actually know what this is, don’t give it away.  Google is cheating!

For anyone else, what do you think this is?  It has a hose connection (and the green ring can move to open up a small vent).  There is a rubber seal around the bottom of the tear-drop shape.  The individual fins are movable – able to be rotated around the vac port (but are very stiff).  The fins are independent of one another – there is a bit of an air gap between them.

I know what it is now, but I had to ask.  Even the first person wearing Festool that I asked wasn’t sure.  Any guesses (or wild suggestions)?  I’ll answer any questions as well as I can (without directly giving away the answer).  Even now I know what it is, I still look at it a bit sideways, and think – that’s just a bit weird.  Probably works a treat, but weird.  Costs over $80 too.  Festool green plastic must be a very expensive colour!  Think I could 3D print one a bit cheaper. 🙂

Views of the Show

As you can see, rent-a-crowd was definitely needed.  The sawdust on the floor of the racing centre was hilarious – the poor cleaning staff did not know what to do.  They are so used to keeping the space neat and clean, and were running around with those little push, manual vacuums trying to keep the sawdust from spreading.

The sign upstairs said “more upstairs”, so for a second I thought “thank goodness, a third level” Denied.  It was just the same sign from downstairs being shown on all monitors.

I’ve always loved the wood shows.  I can’t wait each year for the show to be on again.  This year, I’m still waiting.
