Questions regarding Warranty on MFT/3 Table - Bent Leg
« on: June 13, 2018, 02:34 PM »
Hi, I have a MFT/3 Table that is about a year old and I'm not sure how it happened but I noticed that one of my legs is bent a little.

I was wondering how the warranty on the MFT/3 table works as obviously there can't be a mechanical issue and is a bent leg something festool would fix / replace?

A clamp with a 2x4 and two blocks of wood and you could probably straighten it out.

The foldaway leg is replaceable. FWIW, it's spare part number 494728. To determine whether it's in or out of warranty, you should contact our service team at 888-337-8600. They'll need a little more information to make that sort of determination.

Thanks.

If it were mine I would NOT expect it to be a warranty issue. The legs are built to be strong, but light weight, therefore bending one is not unexpected.

THIS IS A RISKY PROCEDURE!
Stick a couple 1/2" (3/4" if it needs more deflection) boards on the ground, remove the legs, and put them on the board bow up. Gently step on them and see if you can straighten them. Start slow and progress slowly.

Otherwise leave them alone and live with the slight bow. Most likely it won't effect anything. Probably what I would do.
