Or use prayer.
Why would Mafell want to hear you or me opine on what they should do?

If it is that great of an idea then start a company to compete.
Even easisr would a retrofit kit to change motors on the Kapex.
There are many opportunities for you.

Why wouldn't they? 

Pretty sure not everyone with a great idea started a company. Pretty sure sometimes those ideas were taken up by others or by companies.

Seth,

In a lot of ways it’s hard to understand Festool’s response to the issues to the Kapex.  They customer willing to drop $2000 on a miter saw, isn’t going to hesitate to spend $2500 on the vacuum clamp, $2000 grand on the Domino, $1000 on a Track Saw, $4500 on the Edge Bander, $1300 on the OF 2200; ect...

There’s more than just a miter saw at stake.  The customer with a really sour taste in mouth over a bad Kapex experience might be spending thousands of dollars with a competitor that would have otherwise been spent on a Festool product.


Ummm, yeah, OK but not sure what that has to do with what I said in reply to what Holmz said?

With all the information on the internet people still do this... buying the materials and placing them directly in the dumpster would be more environmentally friendly

It;'s my SIL's shower---she paid to have this done [doh]

Page 9, from the DEROS manual:

"The tool has two speed control modes. In the default mode the speed can be adjusted linearly by changing the
position of the lever. In the other mode the speed remains fixed at the set max RPM when the tool is running. When
the RPM+ and RPM– buttons are pressed simultaneously the tool toggles between the two controlling modes."

One thing I should mention is call festool service and get them to contact the rep or your local dealer may have the reps details

Just to clarify Shane this company is putting you in
a sticky situation
Don’t let them ruin your reputation
This units were already on preorder a year ago
Some people paid for it full and then approximately 5 months
after they paid for it your company announces sorry

To start with, avoid wood in the shower...

The shower has about 12 uses on it since it was remodeled. They quit using it 3 months ago, there was still 16" of water in the wall.

IMO,

The term "throttle" should NOT have come up in this thread. That is a totally different thing by definition.

I have a Mirka CEROS 650, yes the one with the transformer. No, not one that had a serial number that was on the recall list, years back.

I just came back in from the shop after a test run. The below is fact, not assuming or remembering.

On the Mirka CEROS 650 that I have owned and used for years, with the -/+ button toggled all the way down to the lowest speed, the paddle acts as an on/off switch. Period.

Once a user toggles the speed up with the -/+ button, then the paddle becomes a variable speed control in addition to on and off.

This is not hearsay. I tested it in the last thirty minutes. It is by far the best ROS that I have ever used. Plenty of power. I have bad wrists and no vibration problems at all.
