Jerry,

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I have a health respect for the work you do as a woodworker and helping to promote Festool, but please don’t ask me to take down my video. Consider that 99.9999% of the people that get one will pay for it, they should know what to expect.

You said: What you show in your video is normal action when the lock levers are unlocked as they were when you did the video. There is designed-in play between the lock lever bolt and the slot cast into the lock mount. That allows the template bar to move easily up and down without binding to accommodate different thicknesses of workpieces.”

That statement begs the question, then why is there no play in the other side? A possible answer could be that the other side should have play, but then that would mean that that side is faulty. Either way somethings just isn’t right.
Now my point here is not to bash Festool, on the contrary, it’s to help Festool live up to their reputation.
