82 Years of Festool

Festool Facts

Decades Of Experience.

Festool developed and patented the guide rail in 1962 and the plunge cut saw in 1980. These are two of the many innovations that Festool has introduced that have changed the landscape of woodworking. Since their original development, these technologies have continued to be refined based on decades of experience. For instance, in 1982, the guide rail was redesigned to include a splinterguard and updated again in 2003 to add additional functionality.
