Wow not cool. That's two new tool releases botched in two years.
I agree, I'm bummed...I was looking very forward to the carvex last time and will certainly be an early adopter this time. I respect festool for their approach to this issue. Heck, they're willing to upgrade you to a pricier saw that you can turn around and possibly sell if you choose once the problem is corrected.
Either way, it's comforting to know that a company stands behind its product and is willing to rectify potential hazards with more than one option!
