Guide rods locking knob - Missing
« on: August 14, 2019, 02:51 PM »
I am missing the knob that holds the two rods in the OF1400 router base (used with edge guide and guide stop).  Being somewhat dufoid, I am unable to find the part # I need to order.  Would some kind soul give me that number, please?  If possible, maybe the generic metric bolt size that I could use until the official part arrives.  Project has now crashed to a halt.

Many thanks,  Curt

Item #63 ?
If yes then you probably need #64 too.

@Curt Not in my shop at the moment, but I think that is an M6knob, so yeah, you could substitute something else until the part arrives.  Depending on your other Festool holdings, you might even be able to find another to pillage for the task -- those short M6 knobs get used across several of their tools.

Gentlemen:

Thank you!  I had the bright idea to call Festool parts and have the rotary knob on order.  When I can get to the hardware store, it is an M6 x 17 bolt.  I have several other Festool tools so will see what I can do to rob Peter to keep Paul rolling - no that I lack for things to do.
