The TS 55 REQ Track Saw - Available Now

Sunday, November 17, 2013 | Reader Comments | Saws

Win a Domino XL Joiner

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 available.

See our website for pricing and to find a Festool dealer near you.

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 | Reader Comments | How-To | Paint

Projects by You

Maybe you remember in our last email newsletter that we noted a mid-1950s Festo Chain Mortiser in one of our customer's testimonial video. Well, when we saw a video posted on YouTube by our colleagues in Lithuania, we realized it was just too cool not to share with you.

You may know that one of Festool's (previously known as Festo) claims to fame is the invention of the world's first gas-powered portable chainsaw in 1925. In this two minute video, we see one of those antique Festo chainsaws brought back to life as it cranks up and then cuts through some timber. Please always wear proper safety equipment and operate your power tools per the manufacturer's instructions.
