Is Festool About to Demo a New Table Saw with Sawstop Technology?

A few hours ago, the Netherlands Festool Youtube account (youtube.com/FestoolNederland) posted a shot 20 second video featuring a small group of Festool employees preparing for a major Construction Fair, by using what looks like a Festsool Table Saw with Sawstop Safety technology, Hotdog test and all…

The description, as translated by Google, is as follows:

Our trainers are currently preparing for the Construction Fair so that they can answer any questions about the innovative SawStop technology. Experience the machine live at the construction fair from 4 to 8 February. Request your tickets here for free and win a KAPEX KS60 of € 774

The show they’re referring to is the BouwBeurs Construction Fair, that largest and most complete trade fair for executive construction, according to their website. The Fair is a bi-annual show that covers all facets of the construction industry.

This is the first time we’ve seen the Sawstop technology in a Festool tool since they were acquired by TTS (Festool’s parent company) back in 2017.

The video leaves us with more questions than answers at this point. We reached out to Festool for comment and will update this article with any new information we acquire.

Inside Look | Milwaukee M18 FUEL Table Saw

One of the most anticipated new tools to come out of the Milwaukee NPS this year was the M18 Fuel Cordless Tablesaw, running on Milwaukee’s new 12.0Ah HD batteries. A few weeks ago we got our hands on the saw, and immediately brought it over to AJ Delancey at AD Enterprises. We asked AJ to put the saw to work on the job site so we could get some real world feedback.  (more…)

Milwaukee NPS18 What is Coming & What We Didn’t See

Milwaukee NPS18

We’re going to start this off with what we didn’t see at Milwaukee’s NPS18 event before jumping into all the good stuff. Of course everyone has a ton of wants, needs and guess on what new products are getting launched at these events but they can only do so much. Steve Richman, Milwaukee’s President got up and said the answer is YES we are going to make that; for pretty much any (logical) tool you are asking about just a matter of time. So For this year’s event no M18 tracksaw, no M18 trim routers, no cordless M18 framing nailer, no new M18 drain cleaning/plumbing, no M18 lawn mower and no revival of the Titan Workcarts. But we did see a ton of exciting stuff and PRE-SALE M18 Tools are already up!!!!

Jobsite Table Saw Showdown 2018

Table Saw Testing

For this competition we wanted to look at the Top 5 Professional Jobsite Table Saws available today and compare them on Safety, Accuracy, Ease of Use, Power and Value. We only selected units with folding wheeled stands integrated, we did not include any of the “Compact” table saw units that use the folding stands also we drew the line at the top 5 for our test, other good options to consider would be Hitachi, Ridgid and Delta which offer solid units at even lower price points.

Table Saws Comparison

With 5 great competitors in the running some of the rating really comes down to splitting hairs but that’s what we do. Also the big elephant in the room is the SawStop as it’s the only one on the market with “Flesh Detecting” technology. We are really going to look at the saws without putting much emphasis on that feature (No Hot Dogs Were Harmed in the making of this video) there have been dozens of videos & posts on that topic, it is an awesome feature we recommend for everyone but if you are still looking for a table saw we want to focus on the other features.

Contestants:
Bosch Table Saw with Stand 4100-09 ($549)
Dewalt Table Saw with Stand DWE7491RS ($549)
Makita Table Saw with Stand 2705X1 ($749)
SawStop Table Saw with Stand JSS-MCA ($1299)
SkilSaw Table Saw with Stand SPT99-12 ($499) (more…)

SKILSAW WormDrive 10” Table Saw SPT99-12

Skilsaw Table Saw SPT99

The team at SKILSAW has been very focus on innovating in corded power tools, which has gone mostly overlooked by other big names in power tools that are consumed with moving everything cordless. The SKILSAW power trains for the most part use high performance motors and WormDrive system are the foundation of most innovation and really work to squeeze every watt of possible power out of your standard 110V service. This new SKILSAW 10” WormDrive Table Saw SPT99-12 ($499) features the most powerful jobsite saw motor we’ve come a crossed, a very nice cart as well as some other nice features which we think will make this saw a very popular jobsite solution.

SKILSAW New Metal Saws & Worm Drive Table Saw

Worm Drive Metal Saw

The SKIL brand has a heritage of making quality tools and at the center of that has always been circular saws. In recent years the SKIL brand has struggled to send a clear message to consumers with pro quality circular saws but also getting into consumer grade cordless and other tools really not intended for pro use. The SKILSAW brand breaking away from the rest of SKIL Tools along with the launch of some new pretty sweet saws like the 10-1/4” Sawsquatch ($449) and partnership with Freud Diablo blades (Both Bosch Brands) has helped bring the SKILSAW name back into the conversation for professional users.
