I just purchased a 106” Festool track saw track off of CL and realized later that it has a very slight bow or I guess could be considered a bow in one section of the track. Do any of you longtime Festool users have any experience with this and does it pose any accuracy issues and/or is there an easy way to take the bow out?

Does it lay flat is use?
If it does, I’d not worry.

It does for most of the length of track but at one end it bows up slightly about 8-9” from the end. It lays about 1/8” above the work piece

I wouldn’t worry about it. If if causes you too much concern, you can clamp the end down and store it upside down.

If it does not cut a straight line it think that should of been disclosed.

Other than that I don’t think it’s that much of a big deal. That’s the way it goes when buying used.

it’s not going to matter one bit, it will lay flat once the saw passes over it or if you clamp it down.
