    Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

    The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
    I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

    As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...

    The receptacle on the Festool dust collector can be a little particular about the things plugged into it. If the prongs do not fit tightly it sometimes does not work - bend them out very slightly and you may be good to go. I have one tool that has that problem.

    I did unplug from the Festool and plugged directly into the outlet, and then tried an outlet on a different circuit. The only thing I didn't try was my late husband's usual 'whack it with a hammer' fine tuning approach.

    I am disappointed that Pegas (Grobet) does not have technical support...

    Makes me wish the rain falling was snow! When you get the whole display set up take pictures. Love the cows falling! Looks like Bruce when he tried ice skating many years ago.

    Sorry to hear that. I have to assume you did bypass the vacuum and plug the saw directly into a wall socket.
    This is the first Pegas failure I have heard about,
    When I initially got my Festool I was using my Hawk. The vacuum did not always come on I think the motor did not draw enough current...

    I would disconnect the festool vac from the system just to insure that the problem does infact reside in the saw

    Thanks guys! The size is a pain but the result is so fun. The food truck was hardest to paint well---I don't do upright (easel style) at all well, so it was laying down when being painted. Picture how unsteady the paint brush hand can be when you have to stand on your tip toes to reach the middle...
