Your point is the reflection of X(40) (reflection of I wrt O)
wrt X(100) (anticomplement of F); he lies on the line I-F-NPcenter
and on the circle (I,2R).

Dear Eric

The perpendiculars from each vertex of the antipedal triangle of I
to the line joining the Feuerbach point with the corresponding vertex
of the pedal triangle of O are concurrent.

The "dual" (by replacing the points I,O):

The perpendiculars from each vertex of the antipedal triangle of O
to the line joining the Feuerbach point with the corresponding vertex
of the pedal triangle of I are concurrent.

Is it true??

I don't think so (if I may believe my sketches)

I also tried anticevian triangles instead of antipedal triangles
(because IaIbIc is the antipedal and anticevian triangle of I) but
it doesn't work either

I also tried replacing one of the excenters by the incenter and
replacing the Feuerbach point by the tangent point of the
ninepointcircle and the selected excircle but without success

PS

I would like to thank Paul for the coordinates of this point
and Jean-Pierre for some nice properties of it and I'm sorry for
the typing errors in the formulae in my original mail

Greetings from Bruges

Sorry, I don't understand your last question

Meanwhile I discovered that using my original statement we get a new
concurrency if we replace the excenters by the vertices of the pedal
triangle of I

so

The perpendiculars from the vertices of the intouch triangle on the
lines joining the Feuerbach-point with the corresponding vertices of
the medial triangle are concurrent
