ATF 65 Blades and Sharpening
« on: October 03, 2019, 03:54 PM »
Any recommendations on where to have my blades sharpened? Just as important, anywhere that I can find blades for my ATF 65? The two that I have are part #486 297. I would love to find a couple more and a reliable place to have the ones I have ground to factory specs.

Regarding new blades:  Still available thru Festool USA.  You may order thru a dealer or call Festool directly and order them like spare parts.

Item numbers
16 tooth  486296
48 tooth  486297
32 tooth  490517
55 tooth  489458

They CURRENTLY show in stock.

Regarding sharpening, not a recommendation on Festool's part, but here are names previously mentioned here:

Leitz
Burns Tools
Forrest
(Tom also mentioned another company and I can't remember the name)

Leitz make the blades for Festool, so they're always a good option for sharpening. I'm sure you could buy a blade for your 65 direct from them as well.

Thanks Lincoln. I was leaning toward them, already. Good to know they make the blades to begin with.
