    As for the plunge base, I ordered from them in November. I still don’t have it but they call me weekly to tell me bosch promises a shipment the following week and would I prefer to keep waiting or cancel. So, it’s still vapour

    Where’d you order it from?

    Same place. Federated. They are pretty good and are being very transparent through the whole thing.

    That router plate adapter looks interesting. Hope it gets to NA soon.

    Gotta assume it comes out at the same time as everything else related to the track saw availability. I think were actually at the ‘soon’ stage on all of this new gear. Weeks or another month or so out at best is my guesstimation.

    Don’t see a lot going out the door for $ 599 without a track.

    Be on the lookout for discounts. They did it for its release with Atlas last week at the woodworking show here in Toronto.

    Nope I don’t see them selling well at that price point.

    What sort of discounts do you think they will have ,
    I’d like to pick up a track saw eventually ,I like Bosch , but at that price and no tracks , I’ll be enticed to look elsewhere

    Isn’t that still cheaper than the Festool and Metabo? I would like to see it lower, but it may be the market they are looking to compete in.

    Did you mean Festool and ‘Mafell’? I’m not aware that Metabo makes a track saw myself.

    Oops -typo – you are correct Mafell is the brand I was thinking of.

    The Festool is way over priced and the Mafell is in a different class. I don’t know anyone that would pay that much for a tool the Bosch has very little experience with.

    #715455

    Yeah – it is spendy. Makita is the better value for sure. I have only seen these at Tool Nut so far, but maybe they will show up in more stores in the coming months. That is the same price as the Festool. It is not the same class as Mafell, but that will set you back even more as already noted.

    So far my favorite track saw is the cordless Festool – I cannot see switching to this at that price point. I have all the tracks already and it needs to be about $100 – $150 less to make it more inline.

    Going to be a tough sell for somebody wanting a track saw. I know all the tool review sites that have tested them are touting them as a replacement for a table saw but if you already have a table saw and stand another $700 or so dollars for tool and track is kind of steep. This will take a while to catch on at this price.

    It will be interesting to see how longevity plays in – several reviews have pointed to quality issues – the base not being flat, the shoe wearing quickly, the scales being useless, flex in the base, etc… Not sure if this is just extreme use-case and not an issue or if it is real stuff to be aware of. Glad to see more choices hitting the market, though. I use track saws almost exclusively in my work due to space issues and they work well for most cutting tasks.

    Brian, you should have purchased it from atlas when they had the event for 550

    I think you are right. Somehow Bosch thinks they are special with the chinese tools. If it were made in germany maybe yea.
