I've just begun to use my Kity 619 which has been in 'cold-storage' ever since I bought it some years ago.

Two requests: Firstly, the splendid looking fence which fits on to a solid casting is a few degrees out of true...am I missing an obvious adjustment and has anyone else in the past found a solution?

Secondly, the small mitre fence is slightly slack in its track which gives a slight +/- result when cutting which obviously gives for inaccuracy. Any solutions apart from putting in a new bar?

Hi Julian,

I can't remember offhand if the 619 has the same sort of fence set up as my Kity 419, but if it has the same aluminium box section extrusion along the front as a running rail, there are elongated slots it the holes that fit it to the table itself.

On mine, it was a simple matter of slackening the bolts of the running rail, putting the fence on and aligning it with the mitre slot until it was parallel, and nipping them back up.

The mitre fence running bar can be tightened by making a few indents into the top of the bar near the edge with a centrepunch. This makes a slight bump into the edges of the bar, tightening it in the slot. If it's too tight, you simply file the bumps down a little.

hope this helps.

Andy

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for your kind response. I will try both methods and feedback to you.

I hope the photos of the new Festool router and yourself were successful at Alexandra Palace on Saturday!

Kind regards

Julian

Ah, was that you with the other guy we asked to stand back while we took a picture? Sorry if it was, but hopefully we got a decent one from it, even with me in it! The router looks great doesn't it? Some good unique features, especially the plunge lock - very nice! cheers, Andy

Yes it was! You always have to 'arrange the furniture' if you want to take a good photo!

I've had an awful cold through the end of last week - hopefully I'll try out your suggestions later this week!

Hi Andy

The mitre fence bar responded to the treatment!

The Kity 619 fence is more complicated...there is no adjustment possible with the extrusion...simply bolt holes! I've discovered that by packing out one of the lugs on the housing that sits on the track extrusion at the edge of the saw, the angle of the fence can be adjusted accurately, so I thinks this calls for a little careful filing on the opposite lug to compensate for the inaccuracy!

Many thanks for pointing me in the right directions!

My Dad has a Kity 619 given to him from the place he works.  he would like to keep it but hasn't the room so i was going to Ebay it for him.

Hi Neil and welcome to GW.

We've got a dedicated forum area for classified ads here.

Try posting a new thread there along with a price tag. You're much more likely to get some responses that way.

Cheers,
Ben
