So I called Festool - they didn’t have info on the old number.

The old number is the Festool number of the original 48 tooth blade that came with my TS tracksaw back in like 2005.

The reason I was asking is the blade with old number is available from Amazon UK for like $54 - a great price for a great blade.

Anyway, arrived today - just like the original. Someone’s old stock.

Here ya go...

Festool changing their part numbers on the IDENTICAL products, always becomes an issue for tracking down information. For an actual/real product change they should use different part numbers but sometimes it's just change for changes sake.
