If they are still in the 30 day return window, return them, then purchase the new ones.

You should start doing crack it must be cheaper than festool

You spent more than $600 on a jig saw! and probably already have another one that works perfectly

I have yet to use a jig saw that will keep a perpendicular cut through hardwoods. If the carvex can it would be worth it. I'm looking forward to hearing how she runs.

Your new here aren't you? The familliar come in get the shakes on price, a few proclamations about sensible value, go lurk for a while as it eats it's way into your mind.

Finally... well the track saw *does* seem pretty usefull... maybe just this one...

Ahhh, to be so young again...

How come anytime someone says anything about festool you get your panties in a knot? If I wanted your opinion I would give it to you.

So true....so true....it has infested my mind like a plague that won't stop until every piece is acquired.

I've got at shot a trimming out a really nice new house, all walnut, craftsman style. I'm more excited to show the GC what I can do than anything. I want to have every green tool I can to show everyone who walks on the job that I am no ordinary trim carpenter. Festool sets you apart from the average. It says something when people see tools and techniques that they didn't even knew existed...

Not really, I actually have 2 tracksaws 1 for the shop 1 for the truck. When I buy tools they really have to pay for themselves in a short amount of time or be something that is not available anywhere else. I run a business not a hobby that acts like a business.
Tracksaw yes, jig saw no

I had a mft table which I sold because I did not use it that much.
