Title: Festool TKS 80 Issues
Post by: mark8par on June 26, 2021, 05:17 AM
Hi everyone,

I purchased a TKS 80 last week and had some issues from the off, i sent it back and received a second but same issues.

1. The table seemed to have a dip in the middle around the throat plate was flush - checked with straightedge.
2. The fence that came with it was not 90 degrees - checked with engineers square
3. The blade is not totally square, this is probably a result of the other issues.

Anyone else had these problems with it?

Thanks

Can you let me know how the check goes?

Cheers

The dip in the table wouldn't be user correctable, but how about the fence and blade angle?  I don't have the TS80, but most saws have some adjustment capability for both of those.

Sorry for the late reply. Mine has no issues. Id send it back and have it replaced. Especially for the cost of this tool!!

Well after using the saw this weekend for some work I noticed the same issues with mine. Couldn't figure why my parts weren't fitting together very well. Have emailed Festool. Will wait and see what their solution is.
