    All standard metric fine threads are finer than BSF, but I fail to see the relevance of any of that anyway...

    From the new pics I don't think it's Blackbutt, maybe Blackwood though as that does yellow quite a lot with age

    My bad. At any rate, the inch is still defined according to a metric measurement so is therefore technically metric.

    Oh yeah, definitely in a drill press and on a fairly slow speed; they're only carbon steel so spinning too fast will burn up the cutting edge

    If you want to get technical about it, the inch was redefined in the 50s and 60s to be exactly 25.4mm so Imperial measurement is actually metric, just with a base of 25.4

    When you can buy a good 100mm belt sander for under $500, I don't really see any appeal to the Festool at all; AFAIK, it doesn't offer any features than can't be had for less money elsewhere.

    I most certainly do want it back. Fanged to death is what it's built for (trust me, I know ;) ). I can fix it, I can't replace it.
