ANy of my reviews start off with a complaint about the price of Festool products. They sell a plastic box for 40% more than a competitor. ( it has nothing to do with the currency exchange, Festool is a Louis Vitton snob of cabinet making tools). But this sanding set is the only way to start off right. The over priced carrying box given the freakiest name possible, 'systainer", neatly stores the sanding grades in different sections and you just pick the right pad and go to town. I've had Festool pretty closet to when they first came to market in about 2008. Not sorry I bought any of it but I wonder if I could have spent $20,000 in Festool over the past 8 years differently. Who knows. I could have bought a vertical sliding panel saw for $25,000 and only had one tool.
