Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: TS 55 Reliability/Quality Problem

I can’t really imagine using 600 grit sand paper to cut through 10 layers of old paint. Just put the right disc on the sander... and put the right blade on the saw. Easy...peasy.

I much prefer my DTS over any other of my Festool sanders, so I think you can't go wrong there. Good for sanding between coats with a high grit, and with a lower grit good for paint removal, and always ready to get into any corner.

The other claim to fame of the DTS 400 is that the larger Delta Pad is more stable than a RO 90 or now-gone DX 93 Sander for many applications

Agree with the blade changers.  On my table saw I always change to the right blade.  Many teeth crosscut, or lesser teeth rip.  Unfortunately for me, my rip blade has too many teeth.  Power is one reason.  Quality of cut is more important.  I want every cut to be perfectly smooth, so I use the right blade.  I have the rip and cross/combo blade for my TS55.  I have no problems changing the blade.  When I plane wood with my handplanes, I switch to the right plane.  When using my sanders, I switch paper grit to get the right smoothness.  When I am driving finish nails, I use my lighter hammer.  When driving 16 penny spikes, I use the heavy framing hammer.  Not sure there are too many tools that do everything perfectly in all situations with no changes or modifications whatsoever.

It takes less than 60 seconds to change a blade on a TS-55.  Why not cut the best cut and cause the least wear on your tool?

Just so that I can partake in the sack pyramid:  6" 48t blade on a dinky sidewinder is like an 80-96t on a 110v contractor saw. 
That's insane.
