Welcome, Dan. Good to have some more Canucks on board (Mirko's already here). Heard any more news about another dealer for Festools in Canada? There are rumors swirling about Lee Valley...

I believe Shane Holland mentioned Festool in Canada and a call for dealers. I am going to go out on a whim here and will stir the pot a little.

I am glad we won't have a monopoly Festool dealer up here in Canada like we've had with Hafele. I think it has hurt the Canadian conusmer. I've attended the woodshow for 8 years and only once did Hafele show up with some Festools.

I am hoping we have choices other then Lee Valley. I don't think they are the answer. When we here about great dealers we talk about Bob Marino, Festool Junkie and Bill at Festool Supply Northwest. These guys are small companies and intimate about the tools and use them day in and day out.

Lee Valley does mail order and is known for that but so do the other companies listed above (not sure about KMS Tools).

Guess we will to wait and see.

Yep, but he left us for the warm, dry climate of southern California

Dan, as a Canadian you can imagine how surreal it is for an Ontarian to have settled in La-La Land. Growing up, California was this mythical place (no Michael, not Mythigan) of surfers and Disneyland. To be living here, and have raised a child here, is very very strange for me.

Plus, I don't get to use "eh?" anymore.

Bob - you still need practice! I can still detect some New Jersey (or is it New York?) accent...
