New Oscillating MultiTool from Festool - The Vecturo!

On December 1st, we will begin shipping the new Festool Vecturo Multitool! The Vecturo has a unique plunge base that makes it easy to squarely plunge into tough materials at a 90 degree angle. That is a challenge with the Fein MultiMaster and SuperCut, as well as other competitors. Other nice features include a depth stop and a 400 watt motor!

Festool's EHL65 Planer is still available!

When Festool decided to discontinue their EHL65 Planer, we were surprised! The feedback we had gotten on the planer were fantastic. It is a 2-9/16" single spiral knife hand planer that is easily operable with one hand. Conventional handheld planers with straight knife cutterheads are both noisy and can leave chatter marks in the cut. These marks require sanding for a smooth surface. Festool planers feature single-knife spiral cutterheads that sheer-cut the material for a cleaner, smoother cut that is ready to glue or finish. This design also reduces noise levels associated with planing for less user strain and greater comfort.

Smooth cuts are just part of the story with Festool planers. When planing carcasses, trim, panels, or doors, the one-handed EHL 65 (Festool 574549) is both ergonomic, as well as powerful. With depth control that can be adjusted on-the-fly, spiral cutterhead, and 720 watts (6.0 Amps) the EHL 65 planer fits the bill for most planing applications. The base of the EHL 65 planer featured an angled groove for chamfering operations with the size of the chamfer being controlled by the depth of cut which can be controlled in 1/256" increments.

So many trimming and planing tasks require working in awkward and sometimes difficult to reach areas. Being able to control the planer with one hand allows easy access for challenging cuts, while leaving one hand free to help secure the material. Not only does the EHL 65 planer allow for one handed use, it also produces clean and smooth shear cuts. The spiral single-knife cutterhead cuts quickly, quietly, and cleanly for less re-work and great results. Conveniently arrange the dust collection port on either side of the machine for optimum extraction. It is a simple and straightforward machine that performs like no other.
