Festool TKS 80 Issues
« 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

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.

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.
