Depth gauge part number : 491155. TS 55 EBQ Plunge saw
« on: November 04, 2016, 03:03 PM »
Just received one of these from a Festool supplier here in the UK. WHy is it not provided with the adjustment wheel on the top to "fine set"

The EKAT diagram shows it as included ?   without it , when i plunge to 20 mm etc it will go well past as the stop has not yet hit the depth stop marker

Thanks

Given the explosion image (for example here) I'm not able to locate any extra part that could attach to the depth selector. As I don't think that the fine adjust going missing is intended to be the end of the saw, maybe it's just missing from the drawing?

I suggest to contact Festool UK and explain the problem to them (and should you get a working answer: please share).

Hi Gregor

Firstly, thanks for all the help etc via "PM" .. There is a 'Hole"  on the  top of the thumb piece you adjust.It looks like it could be threaded ,Just like the later versions that have the small adjust wheel on them etc .


i will call UK festool

Festool uk........

No one answers the phone. They make you keep pressing "2" to stay on hold . WHY? once pressed I agree to stay on hold. Why should i keep doing it every min ?

You know.....customer service is not great in the UK .To be made to wait 20 mins on hold is  a JOKE . I gave up.
