Stuck cutting depth stop on brand new TS 55
« on: April 29, 2014, 11:09 AM »

Couple of weeks ago I purchased a Festool TS 55 circular  saw with guide system. I live in Argentina but since I was traveling to the States I had Amazon ship it to a friend’s home and brought the tool to Argentina with me. When I started reading the instructions to learn how to use it, I noticed that the cutting depth stop was frozen, I cannot move it up or down, no matter how hard I try, and I tried everything like pushing it in or laterally, but it will not move. There’s no Festool service in Argentina, and shipping it back would be too costly. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Look between the adjustment device and the blade housing. See if something has lodged in between the two. The adjustment device is moved towards the blade housing to release it. Once released it should slide up or down.
