New Blade For TS55
« on: May 25, 2010, 07:35 AM »
I need to replace original blade on TS 55.  I use saw to rip and cross cut plywood. Want to keep rubber strip on my guiderails unchanged. Current (original) blade is 491 952.  Is there an exact match for this blade that is available? Thanks

Kevin

Interestingly, the Festool USA site still lists that blade part number (491952) as the standard with the TS55.
http://www.festoolusa.com/products/plunge-cut-circular-saws/ts-55-eq-plunge-cut-circular-saw-specs-561174.html

However, it is not found by part number. 
Maybe Shane will fix the above.    [wink]

The current 48-tooth blade is here:  Item #495 377

Current sale price comes to $55.35

Oops, missed that part number on the specs page.  I have corrected it now.

We changed all of our saw blade product numbers not too long ago.  The only change was to the packaging, not to the blade.  As pointed out, the direct replacement for the stock blade is the 48-tooth (495 377).
