    Using a track saw to cut down sheet goods RULEZ

    No more fighting with sheets on a table saw for this guy. Cut up two sheets of 3/4″ plywood today and it was beautiful.

    Dust collection is FANTASTIC. Ease of use is EASY. The smile on my face is HUGE.

    🙂

    That is all.

    Awesome. Everything the saw was supposed to do appears to be happening. As they say, “it’s nice when a plan comes together”. The dust collection has to be a great plus.

    That’s awesome Brad. Can’t wait to see some pics of the Mafell in action.

    This is a pretty good combo. Bosch VAC090A with e-stat hose and Mafell MT55cc

    OA table is killer for this application. A Bosch FSN 800 rail with the Mafell 110 and Mafell angle fence. This is a little long in keeping the rails square with the angle fence alone.

    Super happy I have the 800 and 110 rail. Can’t wait for the two 160 to get here. Trying out the angle fence on a shorter rail and cut.

    That looks like perfection in my books!

    and a shot of the overall bosch/mafell goodness.

    I never thought it would be that nice. Now you have me wondering about the benefits.

    That is really impressive Brad. Thanks for the video.

    Sounds like a great combo. I’m gonna try to have a track saw this year.

    I have to say, having the table that OA designed is the cats meow. It REALLY makes doing this kind of work a pleasure.

    If you were only closer…

    I have two guys coming over to check it out. One of them not very happy about his festool. I’ll be interested to hear what he thinks about it.

    I have nothing but a $100 circ saw for comparison, but I sure am happy with the purchase so far.

    Brad,

    Awesome saw! Is this the only one you have used? I’ll bet it’s a huge improvement over your straight edge guide!

    Sweet!!! How ridgid are the tracks when linked like that? I know I use my table for other purposes, but that right there is exactly what it was designed for! So glad you like it.

    That vac sounds very quiet!

    It is the only one I’ve used. And it is WAY better then the edge guide.

    They are very rigid. The connectors make them pretty heavy. I hope to get two 1600 so that I only need one connector for long cuts and I can use the shorter 800 on the angle guide for shorter cross cuts.

    Nice Brad, I like seeing those rails that were sent up north. Did old boy mention why he doesn’t like his Festool?

    Nope but I will be sure to ask. He had it in for service three times and then eventually sent it back. That’s all the info I know.

    Oh, and I don’t think he likes the way the rails connect.

    So I assume it’s 1600mm…why not one long enough for sheet goods without any connector?

    Easy to store/transport. These are not even close to the festool rails for attaching. They are perfect every time and VERY easy to attach. After swapping them back and forth a dozen times today, I would say that they are a HUGE selling point of the mafell saw.
