Title: Festool HK 55 EQ Shoe Alignment
Post by: thx1138 on May 05, 2020, 10:21 PM
While working on a project I managed to knock my HK 55 EQ onto the floor which resulted in a misaligned shoe.  Is there an alignment procedure that can be shared or an alignment dimension to be used (inside of blade tooth to a feature on the shoe)?  Thanks!

There is a very good TS55 supplemental manual on the FestoolUSA website.

You can call and talk with a product specialist and they can help walk you through the alignment and help get you HK 55 squared away.

That supplemental manual did the trick.  I tuned all my saws at the same time.  Thanks a lot for this tip!
