DF 500 + what's the TK-DF for?
« on: September 21, 2019, 02:54 AM »
Hi All!

My DF 500 arrived, came with a plastic bag 'TK-DF 500 Q' on it (#495337). Quick look on Festool, but couldn't find this part [blink]

Anyone know what's this for, I guess it has to do with the fence (spare part?). Am I supposed to change this, or is this only for a specific scenario?

Many thanks!

Those paddles are to adjust the condition where the mortise has slightly different offsets between the right and left paddle.  Mine was close enough that I didn't need to use them.  I believe there is a You Tube video floating around somewhere on those however I couldn't locate it.

@Dick Mahany and @Doug S

Thanks  :-[!

Searched on '495337' and of course no results, should have tried '495 337'.  [mad]
