Called the local Woodcraft today to order a new TS55 REQ and I was told by the owner that they had no REQ’s or the older TS55 saws in stock. Apparently, Festool has recalled all the REQ’s due to a plunge issue and they are on backorder with that particular Woodcraft.

Anyone here anything more or know the details?

From an employee in their own forum, dated July 11th:
Festool has notified the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada of a potential problem with the plunge mechanism on some TS 55 REQ Plunge-Cut Track Saws. While investigation is continuing, Festool, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), intends to recall affected units. If you have a TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Track Saw, please discontinue use immediately and call Festool directly at 1-855-784-9727.
