Let's get together in Providence!
Register to attend Festool Connect at JLC Live in Providence, RI on Thursday, March 20th, from 9:00am – 4:00pm EST. This will be a great opportunity for us to, well, connect with you personally—away from the hustle and bustle of the JLC LIVE clinics and exhibits. You'll be our guest as we host a day of learning, socializing and, of course, demonstrating several of the new products we're introducing in the coming months. This is an exclusive event for Festool enthusiasts only, the day before the JLC Live show.
What will I see and do at Festool Connect?
We'll begin the day at 9:00 am in Ballroom A, on the 5th Floor of the Rhode Island Convention Center, with high-impact clinics by industry professionals. You'll see live demonstrations and learn about tools and techniques to take back to the shop. And we'll have Festool staff on hand all day to answer your questions. At noon, we'll treat you to a nice lunch and have some time to kick back and mingle. In the afternoon we'll provide some refreshments between clinics. You may even get a sneak peek at some new tools. Sounds fun, right?!
And, because we appreciate you registering and attending Festool Connect, you'll not only be treated to lunch, but you'll receive a complimentary pass to the JLC LIVE exhibit hall for March 21-22, as well as free Festool swag. As if THAT wasn't enough, you'll also be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win Festool prizes. You must be present to win and at least 18 years of age. Festool employees, dealers, and affiliates are not eligible to win.
Share your instructional or testimonial style video featuring a Festool power tool for a chance to win one of several great prizes! Everyone with an eligible entry is guaranteed to get some Festool swag.
Some of our previous video contest participants have gone on to partner with us to review tools and create additional videos and content. It's enthusiastic members of the Festool power tool community who are willing to share their expertise and knowledge that we really enjoy working with.
Two randomly selected winners will receive $750 toward any Festool product(s) of their choosing. Festool employees will vote to select their top five favorites from all of the entries, each of whom will receive a Festool C 15 Cordless Drill. Those finalists' videos will be featured at our Festool Connect 2014 event on March 20th where those in attendance will vote for the grand prize winner of $1,000 toward Festool product(s) of their choice.
The new TS 55 REQ represents the most advanced plunge cut saw and guide rail system we've ever built. Watch the video!
The TS 55 REQ is not your standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, a better comparison would be to the most advanced table saws, miter saws or panel saws available. Add in its incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other, at home in the highest-end cabinet shop as well as an onsite remodel. With the addition of micro-adjustable depth controls and a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, the TS 55 REQ is our most advanced plunge cut track saw ever, which is saying a lot.
But, don't take our word for it. Pros and editors agree that the Festool TS 55 is the best track saw available.
See our website for pricing and to find a Festool dealer near you.
Now for a little levity, watch this video from Spencer Ratliff demonstrating some "interesting" features and uses of the TS 55 REQ Track Saw.

How do you make the Carvex even better?
You make it cordless.
Tackle your most demanding (and remote) applications with the robust and versatile new Carvex Cordless Jigsaws. Designed to deliver the same performance as their corded counterparts while taking advantage of the tool-less base change platform, these revolutionary jigsaws will have you forgetting that you've cut the cord.
The 18-volt 4.2Ah Lithium Ion batteries coupled with high-efficient brushless motor technology provides exceptional run time. The Cordless Carvex 420 is compatible with all Festool flat pack batteries made since 2005 including NiCad, NiMH and Lithium Ion batteries ranging from 12-volts to 18-volts.
Choose from the traditional D-Handle design or the barrel grip design. Already own a Festool cordless drill? Save by buying the "Basic" versions of the cordless Carvex, which exclude the batteries and charger.
