New tool offerings include an angle grinder, an oscillating multitool, and a mobile workshop.
Festool is slowly catching up to the rest of the tool universe with an increasing number of cordless offerings. The recently introduced 18v Vecturo oscillating multitool is one example. It has tool-free blade changes and a comfortable angled housing, as well as an optional plunge base with a depth stop and dust collection. The company also released an 18v cordless angle grinder (above) with toolless blade changes and an atypical battery arrangement that’s less likely to get in the way when grinding and polishing. But it was the MW 1000 workstation that really caught my eye at the Festool booth. The intelligently designed Systainer cart has a compact MFT-style top and an adjustable pullout drawer so you can easily access your most-used items. Optional clamps and a side table allow you to expand the work surface and tailor the setup to your specific needs.
