Metric Scales for OF 1010 / 1400 / 2200 (US)
« on: October 03, 2018, 12:18 PM »
If you prefer working in metric and have a Festool router with the newer imperial scales, you can now order replacement metric scales from our website. Quick and easy to install. The OF 1010 scale requires swapping the existing scale with the two screws holding it in place, the OF 1400/2200 scales have an adhesive backing.

For all other tools, Festool does not have a scale that can be user installed/replaced at this time.

Make that one screw, and it's a torx 10.

Thanks. I don't have a 1010, but I only saw one screw in the photo. I was told two screws by Festool. Either way, easy to install.

After trying everything else Festool finally did the right thing - offer scales separately. Can't wait for the saw stickers by 2025.  [popcorn]

Well, as was mentioned, it's a little fix.  Still, just selling both tools in the first place would be better and allow people to have a Part Number that matches the tool configuration. And in this case not deal with misplaced label, or wondering how long till it falls off. It's definitely a good thing for those who had to buy a router and were stuck with Imperial or those who bought one and found out after the fact it wouldn't come metric.

Not sure what the hold up is on the Saw part, Festool has them to swap over when people send a saw in (if they are still doing that), and for a replacement part, so not sure why they would not be available, hopefully this is addressed soon.
