The new TS 55 REQ

In the spirit Festool's unwavering pursuit of perfection, we've refined our best plunge cut saw and made it even better. The new TS 55 REQ represents the most advanced plunge cut saw and guide rail system we've ever built. Watch the video!

The TS 55 REQ is not your standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, a better comparison would be to the most advanced table saws, miter saws or panel saws available. Add in its incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other, at home in the highest-end cabinet shop as well as an onsite remodel. With the addition of micro-adjustable depth controls and a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, the TS 55 REQ is our most advanced plunge cut track saw ever, which is saying a lot.

But, don't take our word for it. Pros and editors agree that the Festool TS 55 is the best track saw on the market.

Warner Remodeling

Hard work ethic, staying organized, and the right tools.

By Darcy Warner

When I was young, my summers were filled working with my grandfather and father on a wide range of jobs involving carpentry, farming, and mechanics. They taught me that when you put in hard work, you get quality results. While it wasn't fun at the time, those years instilled in me fundamental work ethics that help me run my business today.

My name is Darcy Warner, I run a carpentry, remodeling, woodworking business. I've been a carpenter for 12 years and most of my work is custom woodwork, onsite remodeling, finish carpentry, built-ins and trim work. Needless to say, none of the jobs I do are the same from one time to the next.

Doing totally custom work for my clients always brings a unique challenge, and I try to perform each project better and faster than the previous one. Inevitably you have to be shuffling tools from different job sites, so having the right tools will help you get to the finished product quicker.
