Actually great minds think alike:

Plug-It SYSTEM HACK! Bringing non-Festools into the fold

Glad to see this idea in action, so to speak.
Amazing, in your 11/7/13 post on FOG you outlined exactly what I have done!
This is the first time I saw that post, so today I decided to post my solution on FOG. The post lasted about 4 hours and was taken down by the Global Moderator. I received this message from him -

"I really hate to inform you that I had to remove your first post on the FOG which was about modifying plug it cords due to the fact that it depicted modification of a Festool product. As a manufacturer owned forum we have to be very careful about modifications being depicted due to potential liability issues."

Surprisingly, your suggestion to do what I did was left up, but once it was depicted in detail in my post they quickly removed it. I wonder if the reason given regarding potential liability is the sole reason, or are they worried about potential loss of sales of the plug-it pigtail.
