    I don’t think that storage would hurt the rail – it is pretty thick steel from what I have read and it is pretty tough. The cool thing with this saw is that it would also use the standard F track rails if you wanted something more rigid.

    not the 55, just the Kss400 I have.

    Brad, have you compared the Festool TS55REQ to your 55 Mafell? Just curious about the power and how smooth it is.

    Calidecks has both saws and the Mafell is more powerful. I have found the TS55 to be somewhat lacking in power. That is why I went with the TS75. If I had known about Mafell back then, I would have opted for the MT55 saw.

    Thanks @MrToolJunkie I’ve been thinking about getting the 75 but more as a pipe dream. I have been cutting mostly sheet goods and a little bit of 1″ Tiger maple no problems. But some of thick stuff I could see maybe gettingmitsmbigger brother.

    That’s really cool. I didn’t know that a flexible track existed. I can see how the flexibility could be a downside in certain situations but it’s hard to beat for being a compact system.

    If you work with any thicker stock it makes a difference. Of course blade choice can help as well. I usually just use the standard 36 tooth blade for most cuts and it is has been fine for what I need it to do. And of course I have my Mafell KSS80 for the big stuff!
