This isn’t any kind of April Fools Day joke. Tomorrow, 4/1/2016, many of Festool’s prices are going up.
So how do you know whether that Festool tool or accessory you’ve been meaning to buy will be going up in price? Check out the list Festool Products (a Tool Nut company) put together.
There are several things on my own wishlist – cross braces for my MFT table, and quick-action clamps. The clamps I’ve been meaning to buy aren’t even on the list, and the MFT table leg cross braces will be going up in price by $2 to $80.
There’s a temptation for me to order the cross braces ASAP, but I’m still not convinced I need them. Yes, my MFT table could be sturdier, and that’s exactly what the cross braces are for, but I need more time to decide. $2 savings is not enough to persuade me to place an order before the price goes into effect.
For the highest-value tools and accessories, you might be looking at $10 to $40 price increases. But most items won’t be going up in price that much.
