    ETS EC 150/5. I don't make that recommendation lightly because the cost is $100 more than when i bought mine.

    I also have this sander and back up everything Drew mentioned above.  The other thing that is a real plus with the Festool sanders is they are easy on the hand during long sanding sessions.  I ran mine almost constantly for 4 hours today and could have gone longer if needed.  I couldn't have done that with my old Dewalts I had in the past.

    So Question???? Paint it, stain it, seal coat it, or move on Paul its a wood shop?

    If I was feeling the OCD I would paint it white like the walls around it.  But in reality I would probably spray a quick coat from a can of something in the shop that was almost empty anyway.

    After close examination, I can't see why it is a second. Couldn't find any flaws.

    Might have been something that was repaired.  Comes of the line and there is something wrong, they fix it but it can no longer be sold as new.

    I have the same model and really like it.  I probably use it as much as my block plane.

  4. Well this has been a heck of a journey to follow.  I hope you get years of enjoyment out of your labors.  I have a new appreciation of the term "Home Theater".

    I bet you are looking forward to some woodworking projects that aren't connected to the basement though.

    And what made you decide that now was the time,

    I was using it to vacuum up under the kitchen sink during this renovation and I could tell that it tasing filtering the air real well so looked at it and it was pretty dirty.
