Just do the same as Rob and you're cordless in a jiffy.

Hi Rob,

That's definitely annoying, but the plus side is that it isn't an integral cord as on most other-branded tools.

However, I'm pleased to see that you have some time off from running your great company to actually use some of your goodies!

Regards, Dick

@Rob Lee,

You can get replacement cords from Festool dealers  [eek].  Hope your saw is ok.

Rob, be honest, you were just following your marketing departments request for how to promote cutting the cord!

Thanks for the tip Peter.... [unsure]

Cost me a few hundred bucks, 'cause I had to buy one of the new hoses, and a few clamps too.....

Now - if only the saw used the same plug-it as the sanders, I wouldn't have had to stop working.... what kind of design choice was that??

 [eek] [big grin]

Yet another great reason to get that cord attached/wrapped with the hose!

I ran over the cord for an electric mower after moving from a house with a tiny yard to a house with an acre of grass. I’d been mowing for about 4 hours and was about 1/2 done. I was exhausted, it was getting dark, and I mowed the cord.

It was a major flash bang experience. A stiff drink and I showered and went to bed.

The next day, I bought a really big gasoline mower with a battery starter.

That's what you get when you dance in your shop with your TS55.  [big grin]
