My 1st BIG Day with the Festool TS75
OK is it safe to discuss this, to say Festool…? No EZ pleeze….
So far I’d only used the TS75 several times for one or 2 tasks. I bought it as I “had” an offer for some custom cabinetry but no space. Job has since been put on hold by the owner.
Today I had to cut up 3 sheets of plywood into about 35 pieces for kitchen cabinet doors.
This took me one hour from set up-a sheet of plywood on saw horses and roll out of tool-to sitting here in fron of my Mac. The dust left over (I also have the CT22) was about 2 cups,clean up was about 2 minutes.
All the cuts are dead on and I felt a lot better using the rail system as opposed to a tablesaw for the smaller cuts.
I’m now much happier that I made this purchase instead of a $1000 contractors saw. I still miss my PM66 but sisnce I don’t have the space..but even so there was nothing I couldn’t do.
The other day I made a jig and ripped 25 bdft into 1″ x 3/4″ x 48″ strips with little trouble.
The hose of the vacuum tended to get snagged on the board edge at inopportune times forcing me to go it one handed as I pushed it aside. The cord like to snag on the rail. They sell a little ramp but that should be included as it’s dangerous to have to look back and take a hand off despite any rail.
If your on the fence about a contractors saw or TS75 I highly recommend the TS75! If your looking more towards a cabinet saw….depending upon your intentions this is a close tie for me. A cabinet saw has ratcheted down my list after today!
PLEASE DON’T EZ THIS THREAD UP!
I just want to share my personal experience.
