TS55. REQ vs FEQ retrofit
« on: April 17, 2022, 09:47 PM »
Seen the new model with the newer 1.8mm blade and splinter guard. My question is it is pointless to buy a brand new TS55 when i bought my REQ less than a year ago. Can I buy the newer splinter guard 1.8mm and new blade installed on my REQ and for it to work as revised FEQ.

Apparently, there are several parts that make it not worth the expense to retrofit - it is not just the riving knife.
