Title: Video :How to mount the TS 75 to a CMS module plate
Post by: Nigel on November 30, 2011, 01:02 AM
There was talk a while back about someone doing a video to show this but no-one came up with one so yesterday I made this for those interested.

 Mounting the TS 75 to the cms module plate:


Fitting the Festool TS 75 saw to it's CMS Module (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGsy3xfpYOI#ws)

Finally I know how to exchange the riving knife and put on the protective cover.  [tongue]  Although not as safe, with the standard riving knive I can see the blade more clearly and make 'hidden' sawcuts.

@Nigel: Why locking the depth adjuster before screwing it thight? I must check this (Let's go digging for the manual) but can't the depth adjuster be fixed while leaving the saw in its zero depth position?

Hi Bainiet,

I just  just nip the depth adjuster to hold it in place and plunge the saw because the saw is in a permanently slightly plunged position in the module.You don't want to tighten it too muchso it won't bolt down.I find it easier but it may not be the way described in the manual.I doubt I've even read the manual.  [embarassed].You can do it without plunging first I think.

The riving knife can be difficult however it just went on easy in the vid.I always completely unscrew the mounting screw for mounting that one.It takes a while to get the hang of it but it does make a difference to the dust extraction.
