Good Lord, that would be a long list.

Highlights:

Festool TS55 Track Saw
Festool RO150 Sander
Festool 1040 Router
Festool MFT3 Table
Fein Multimaster
Fein Turbo II vacuum
Lie Nielson chisels (1/2" mortising and 1/2" bench)
Milwaukee 10-1/4" circular saw
Pavan trowels
Marshalltown 16x5" stainless trowel

oh, and a $2.97 bottle brush ;):yes:

Just finished some matching chairs for my boys using everything above, except the trowels and the bottle brush, made out of reclaimed 100 year old clear larch and some pretty VG hemlock. I'm not as good at furniture as I am at drywall, but I sure try real hard (and enjoy it loads more).:D

Oh yeah, I forgot the Hilti TE-7 Combi-hammer. It was NOT used on the furniture, but it made me some money

I had to pretty much go out and replace everything. I had a few drywall things left, but everything else was stolen.

I topped out at around 35K with the new 7x14 trailer and dump trailer. The highlight is my Festool collection! Slim will appreciate this! :thumbup:

I couldn't decide on what router so I bought all 3. :eek: I was going to get the little trim router as well but my wife stopped me.:rolleyes: I have my eye on the RO90 sander, but no cash right now.

The only tools I have used so far are the rail saw and the sander. But I told my wife that they were all needed :yes:.

Yup, I am a tool whore...this is just the tip of the iceburg. I definitely have a problem!

It looks like you have the RO150, so I don't see a need for the 90....you should focus instead on the detail sander, tell your wife I said you NEED that one;) I patched a bunch of engineered hardwood boards with my Rail saw......incredible results. Removing one board here and there, with no problems (and I'm a DRYWALLER!). Their tools really are a cut (or ten) above the rest.

I was going to get a new extension handle for boxes, But I won the Columbia one.

Was in need of some new knives, but advance sent me a whole set to try.

Was just about to buy a new mixer, then Rhardman sent me his to try.

I did buy a new can-am bead roller, but was not keen on it, then Tapepro (tomg) sent me his to try, and 2 applicators (which I have sent to justme to try).

2bjr lost my 6" advance knife, and kiwiman sent me his

So I think all I bought this year is a roller and sand paper.

I really love Drywall Talk:thumbup:

I was thinking about one of those power sander thingies, to replace 2bjr,,,, hint,,,,, hint:whistling2:
