Couldn't agree more, but being exposed to Sioux and subsequently Mirka in the line of work have spoiled it.
The local wood club here also happens to retail Festool...so every time I drop in to stock up on BB, there's the entire lineup staring me down as soon as I enter the door.
The brushless motors are game changers. Seriously worth looking into if compressed air is not an option.
Still stung the wallet, possibly even sold out, but I also don't have many power tools to begin with...not even a table saw. For as much as I despise finishing work, seems all my tools are somehow centered around that process.
I've got a 3" RO for detail/polishing work...this will likely be my first and last 6".
