Another thank you for posting this, Al. My own Kapex is fine, but It's good to have an insurance policy, although if the armature ever does burn-out on mine I may well also look at building a "Frankenkapex" with a more powerful brushless motor and the necessary control circuitry

i am of the belief that there is at least one service person in Canada.  But frankly who the junk cares if your tools are serviced.

Sometimes the nit picky junk is frankly much.

Hope everyone is working safely and productively this weekend.


Well Peter. I guess I am the nitty picky junkie  who cares that that it took a long time for my saw to be forwarded to the US for service. As opposed to the more fortunate folks in the states.

A big thank you to ALI Construction for taking the time to document the repair and provide the pdf. I never heard back from festool even though they want an email or phone call instead of posting, I managed to get a new armature assembly and with your notes I did the repair in 30 minutes
