Well I took the plunge and snatched up a TS 75.  Doesn't come with a rail, but $468 shipped with no tax in CO is pretty good I think.  Amazon sells it for $780 so that sounds like a good discount figuring the warranty is shorter and such.

The 75" rail that doesn't come with it is $212, so full retail on just the TS75 is $568, so $100 savings on the saw, not bad, but a discount less than 20% off of new, with 2 years less warranty. I have a TS75 and love it, I'm sure you will too. Congrats!

TS 75 EQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw - w/o Guide Rail
Cut as straight as a panel saw with the versatility of a portable saw. The Festool TS 75 EQ plunge saw has a multitude of uses, from fine carpentry to cutting spiral staircase steps; from rough timber to cutting out window frames in renovation work. The TS 75 is a larger saw with greater cut depth than the Festool TS 75 EQ. Portable circular saws often react unexpectedly. They wander off line and are subject to play in the guide. It is a quick way to ruin expensive material. But not the TS 75 EQ: the saw blade makes its cut absolutely straight and splinter-free. Perpendicular or even beveled, the choice is yours. As a plunge saw, it can start and end a cut accurately anywhere on the material. Equally important, on the TS 75, the saw blade and riving knife retracts into the housing, unlike on conventional pendulum-cover saws, where the cover retracts instead of the blade. This automatically means greater intrinsic safety.

Could use some proofreading and editing.

Thanks guys for sending the list.  Looks like I haven't missed out on anything I'm looking for yet.  I did get the email yesterday for the TS75 so hopefully the email problem is now fixed.  Good Luck to all and hope you are able to snag a deal that you want- I've been fortunate to get a few recon items in the past couple years and have been quite pleased with them.  Most look brand new.

Regards,
Gerald

The only Festool items I want is the MFS 700 template guide which I'll never see and the Duplex LD 130 EQ profile sander.
I'm tempted to order the MFS from that German eBay source but don't really want to.

Festool should change IT developers.  I got the email for the 1010 router, but did not get the email for the Kapex.  This has happened two or three times now.  Not sure because I have no way of knowing what I have missed.

Does not matter though, because I would buy new anyway.

@rvieceli - Great minds think alike. I was sending @Deane62 a message a few minutes ago.

I want to give a big shout out to TylerC.  My recon PDC drill came missing a couple of items.  He looked into it for me and got them shipped to me ASAP.  Everyone at Festool that I dealt with on this couldn't have been any nicer or more helpful and it was much apprecitated.  :)

You would have to be near crazy to buy it at any price given the track record for repairs discussed here.

Good luck on that...Uncle Bob and ToolNut closed out stock on all the various MFS rails back in June 2016. I'd be surprised to see anything like that resurface for this sale.

Unfortunately, I think Germany is your only resort for new stock.

Interesting to note, that the DF 700 and the Kapex were both at the same price point, yet the DF sold out in 8 minutes while it took 3 1/2 hours for the Kapex to sell out. Maybe its reputation has caught up with it?

Buying a Kapex with a one year warranty is like giving a toddler a drivers license...  Definitely not a good idea!!!

I think with the number of people around here that continue to have issues with the 110v motor and Festools lack of any response in 18 months since they said they'd look into it ..............

Yes , it's necessary.

Great point...forgot about the 1 year warranty.  [doh]  So the purchase of a Kapex really does become toxic during a recon sale. That alone could explain why there is such a dismal performance of the Kapex during this sale. Definitely not a good harbinger of good things to come, unless Festool decides to right the wrongs. 🤡
