There the video added.  [wink]

I believe the Trion blade was made slightly thinner to work better in the Carvex with it's auto-eject mechanism. I want to say it was just a thinner coat of paint on the blade, no change to the blade itself, but I may be wrong.

Looks like they got it sorted!

Have you run any trials with other Festool blades and the old Trion-labelled S75/4 FSG blade? Do they work with the new blade guide system as well the 'new blade' or is it only this particular combination that works like its supposed to?

All blades work but I am well informed Fsg is the ultimate blade hopefully I can get a hold of some and give them a test although you may well have to order them because I think they are not as yet in store .

Good Morning

We had the new blades in this morning, and after a quick look, I can only spot one difference to the old ones, can you?

I can see the only difference that "old" blades have "Trion", the new one have "Carvex". Plus new P/N.

Good Afternoon

That's all I can see, there may be another difference but I can't tell. I'll ask the rep next time he's in.

Best regards

From what TTS Holland told me, is that the new Carvex blades are rectangular and therefore are a little stiffer while the Trion versions are a little tapered.
That the Trion versions are tapered can only be measured with a caliper and also has a reason, not to have the blade burning the material and going around corners.

I personally think it's a little late to bring out the Carvex blades because the PS 400 series are nearly 2 years on the market.

And what I see on the PS 420 video on the FOG it's of no use at all. It still a machine with problems. But maybe that's a little to soon to judge.

Hey needleman , you have a lot of festool equipment and when you get the chance to test the 420 take your 400 with you I am sure you will notice the difference in blade and saw , jmb get hold of the 420 when you can and give it the once over , green .

I got one of the new S75/4 FSG Carvex blades and the only difference that I can find with the Trion one is a miniscule thickness difference with the carvex branded being thicker by a hair. Had to put them on a table back to back to even notice the difference. Could be thicker paint - that small a difference.

It could be that the trion ones a bit tapered at the back vs. the carvex one being more or less uniform thickness.

I would love to but been told festool only replace the 400 with 420 if your carvex has been in for repair 3times
