Part number for Stop block bolt - Urgent
« on: February 10, 2018, 11:51 AM »
Hello,
I just lost the bolt that goes in the track stop in the festool FS1400 saw track (it felt under the base board floor somewhere). Does anybody know the Part number and where to re-order? On a second note, do you have a part number of any t-bolt that would fit the track guide? I read a lot of posts but not specific part number. I can see that Lee Valley and Rockler has t-bolts and Incra has nuts but I am not sure about the part umber. I Cannot return so I need to be sure. thanks for your help!!
Thanks LV

Here's the parts view for the 1400 router -

http://ekat.festool.de/login/jsp/main.jsp?doAction=start&autologin=true&userId=US-Kunde-FT_US&password=Customer&design=festool

You can find the Festool phone number on FestoolUSA.com - also access to the parts catalog I linked to above from there -

Start here - https://www.festoolusa.com/service assuming you are in the US

Not clear on your second question.  You can probably find 1/4" t-bolts in the plumbing aisle at HD or Lowes.  They are called 'closet bolts' for anchoring a toilet.  You might need to file down the head slightly but they should fit in the Festool rail if that is what you are referring to.

you might want to add your location to your FOG profile - it's not clear if you are in the US or somewhere else in the world -

I do not have a router. I was referring to the stop for the TS55 to avoid the kickback. I drop the t nut under the joist. I could not find the part in the catalogue. It is a part for the saw stop. Anyway thanks. I forgot about thank you but I used your idea for the toilette bolt. I cannot use it for the saw stop but I used it to create a great Qwas dog. Thanks again

Hi Peter, sorry I just saw this. Actually the #2 is a bolt and not a nut. I guess it is not the same part. I am looking for the one in the pic attached. I have 2 stops but I lost one of the bolt :(

You should be able to go to a industrial hardware store and find something that will work.

Have you called festool service?

Theyll be able to help you out.

Last time i called they connected me to a repair tech and he hooked me up.

I always call festool service if I cant find something at the industrial hardware shop

I'm not so sure.  The head of the bolt is rectangular so that it fits into the slot in the bottom of the limit stop.  That seems rather unique.

I called Festool this afternoon trying to get the exact part number.  I got transferred to the service number since the ekat diagram didn't reflect the actual limit stop.  He went at looked at the limit stop that came with a TS75 he had in front of him and he said it looked like the ekat diagram.  Per his request, I emailed him these pictures of the limit stop to service@festoolusa.com:
278728-0278730-1278732-2


He said he was pretty much the only person who checks that email - and then he'd check with some more senior people to see if they know what the deal is with this bolt.

I would go talk to a small engineering business, they could knock one up quickly if time is the biggest concern. Of cause this will cost more than buying a genuine bolt but I would expect the difference to be palatable.

Welcome to the forum, Forestmount!

The bolt in question is part of the Limit Stop FS-RSP. It has a list price of $13.75. So, it would be far more cost effective to simply purchase a new limit stop than have someone attempt to make a one-off replacement part.
Looks like your rabbit joint is a hare off! ;)

I don't know of any small engineering businesses.  Would they really bother to make just 1 or 2 bolts??  That doesn't seem like it's worth the effort.

Heck for just 1 bolt and if time was truly of the essence - you could probably find an off the shelf hex head bolt and just cut the sides off to fit, but I don't think that's the point.

Unless you are in Australia, where it costs AUD41.00 = USD31.18. Ouch! Just hope Kev does not see this post.
