Ha. Yea I had to be one of the first to order as I jumped on that early on. My shipping label was create on the 29th, but UPS still has no updates on it yet.

You can be sure it won't be in UPS hands until tomorrow, Festool is taking any early sales seriously.

I don't think any of us are concerned about a couple of days, for me I just hope I get one, if it comes in a week or a month I don't really care.  I ordered two from different places to try to ensure I get at least one, I don't really care about the sander I bought them for the Systainer, Plug-it and voucher as I use Mirka ROS.

I still don't understand how they haven't figured out release day delivery on this stuff.

If those idiots at Apple could figure it out...

Maybe mine would too, if you hadn't posted it on slickdeals :ph34r:

Isn't Ben_r_ sorta responsible for the popularity of this sander?

I wonder how many Eric secretly ordered???

Prolly none. He's into bikes now, you know, bike bells and stuff like that.

I ordered none but not because of bikes...I have a 6" sander so I had no reason to buy this thing, as cheap as it was.  I do think it was a good opportunity to make some money flipping them if you bought a dozen or so.  You'll have to hold them for a while but I bet they'll be profitable in six months or a year.

The sander itself I find to be kind of silly.  5" sanders in general, not just that one.

Well that depends. I have a 5" sander (Dewalt) and last weekend I wished I had a smaller one, after struggling with a pair of large frames I made.

I think you have made your position on 5" sanders crystal clear, just poking the bear.......

I do find it hard to resist great deals even if I don't need something...and this was a great deal, no doubt about it.  But I kind of look at it like when people offer you free baseball tickets.  Basically they're handing you a bill for $300.  And that's how I looked at this sander since I have no 5" paper.  If it had been a 6" sander I probably would have bought two and sold one in a year.

Some people getting emails that they shouldn't expect their order until March. Dang.

I would cancel my order outright.

:( I haven't heard anything yet. I'm wondering if I'm going to get stuck in round 2 of shipments. I placed my order at 6pm the first night, so it's not like i waited a long time.
