Festool’s roadshow hauler stood out as one of the more memorable exhibits at AWFS. It’s kind of hard to miss a giant truck, branded from stem to stern, Nascar style. Inside were a couple of newer tools, including the SE2 vacuum clamping module and STL 450 inspection light.

The SE 2 has an oval-shaped (10.8” x 3.9”) vacuum pod, joining the circle-shaped SE 1 in Festool’s USA VAC SYS (vacuum system) category.

Both modules feature a suction base that adheres to nonporous surfaces, rotates 360 degrees and swivels up to 90 degrees. They are available in a system set, which includes the vacuum pump, foot valve and one or two clamping modules.

C)-STL-450-work-light-with-stand-accessory

The inspection light helps detect flaws and unevenness in workpieces being sanded or finished. It features a highly focused LED light cone to detect imperfections during the work process.

The SE 1 and SE 2 products are currently available, while the inspection light is scheduled for availability in the fall.

Festool also made news at the show with the announcement it is supplying a custom spindle for the Shaper Origin, a hand-held CNC router.
