... Be sure to order a Euro rough-in box too.

Do you have a link?

You may very well be correct.  I'm not doubting what you say, but Timberwolf have the K85 "family" listed (& priced) on their website in 120V for much less than you're suggesting:  less than half in fact.

They certainly can't be described as cheap, but where I'm from Festo/ol prices are some 150%-1000% over USA equivalents, which makes Mafell extremely good value in comparison.

This is a fact

So heres my thought, could i get a 240v Kapex for my shop and run it 240 in my shop in Oregon US NA and get past the possible motor issues? This expanded to the idea of running a TS55 on 240v dedicated in my shop?
...

You have 3 options.
1) 220 v out the a euro plug, or into a cheater with euro on the email end and US 220 on the wall end.
2) Timberwolf and other sell 120-240v transformers for when you are in the field.
3) a 230v generator.

You then open access to other tools like Mirka and Rupes sanders, and Mafells and Lamellos.

This is a fact... the price for a delivered MT55 from the Eu was less or around the same as the TS55, and the p1cc was about the same as a Carvex after adding in the carvex accessories.

Hand sand it; does it do the same thing? If so, not the hardware.

The Nippur cubit-rod (c. 2650 BC) in the Archeological Museum of Istanbul, Turkey. Note the line of holes spaced at approximately 3 parmak. It is believed that these holes were used to space shelves.

I get annoyed with myself when I notice a little something odd, but I rationlise it away. Later, realise that I have made a mistake and the oddity I dismissed earlier was a clue that I should have picked up on earlier.

You can measure your cuts in cubits if you want. All the LR32 system does is register off of one edge of whatever you put under it.

Talk to the dealer you purchased them from about swapping for a metric version. Offer to purchase more tools if they do the exchange. Assuming they are still new in box.
