New TS55REQ Plunge Cut Track Saw Shipping October 23, 2013!

Wait no longer! Festool's new TS55 Plunge Cut Saw will be shipping on October 23rd, 2013.  The TS55REQ is not your standard circular saw. With its accuracy and versatility, a better comparison would be to the most advanced table saws, miter saws or panel saws available. Add in its incredible portability and unbelievable ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other, at home in the highest-end cabinet shop as well as an onsite remodel. With the addition of micro-adjustable depth controls and a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces, the TS 55 REQ is our most advanced plunge cut saw ever, which is saying a lot.
  • When used with Festool guide rails, you can achieve perfectly straight and splinter-free cuts.
  • Spring-loaded riving knife (splitter) keeps the cut kerf open so that the material does not pinch the blade. This reduces the chance of kickback.
  • The slip clutch helps to minimize the risk of a kickback and minimizes wear on the blade, gear case, and motor.
  • Blade changes are easier and safer using the FastFix system which locks switch and arbor simultaneously for easy arbor bolt removal.

DeWalt Extreme Runtime (XR) Cordless Tools

DeWalt XR Cordless Tools are designed with brushless motors and high capacity batteries. The results of this combination are amazing, resulting in:
  • Cooler running motor.
  • More efficient motor.
  • Longer runtime.
In a recent test, the DeWalt DCD790D2 XR Brushless Compact Drill with a 2.0Ah battery outperformed the DeWalt DCD780C2 (brushed) compact drove 1,737 screws compared to the brushed version's 649 screws!

Why brushless? The physical contact of brushes causes system inefficiency through energy loss, friction, and heat build up. Brushes are wearing parts that occasionally need maintenance and replacement...this costs money! With DeWalt's brushless motor, power is delivered to the stationary electromagnets through electronic circuitry. The friction point is removed creating a more efficient use of the power and less power loss equating to more run-time. The wearable components are removed requiring less maintenance, and saving you money in the long-run!

Distance Measuring Tools

Digital measuring devices has been a growing category the past few years. Starting with the LEICA tools 5-6 years ago, these tools used to cost around $1,000. Since then, Stabila (LD300), Bosch (DLR130K), Milwaukee (2280-20), and DeWalt (DW030P) have entered the fray and brought the cost of these convenient cost-saving tools WAY down. Now, Pacific Laser Systems has launched a new PLS distance measurement tool, the PLS1. The PLS1 separates itself from the pack by offering a 265 ft. range, and an IP54 protection rating. Retailing at an affordable $199, the PLS1 is now the best buy in the measuring device category!

New Lamello CLASSIC X Biscuit Joiner

Lamello has announced the launch of a new version of the "Classic" series biscuit joiner which will replace the Classic C3. This new tool is the Lamello Classic X biscuit joiner. 

What is the difference? As with the new Top 21 and the Zeta biscuit joiners, there is a new base with swiveling front stop which has different stop square that is flush with the width of the swiveling front stop. The dovetail slides are now on the front face of the stops and are more accurate as well as ergonomic. These new features have now been put in the Classic X. The Classic X will also have a different motor which is now a more powerful 780 watts instead of 700 watts. This X-motor is slimmer and more ergonomic than the older C3 motor. 

Another nice bonus feature is the packaging. Several years ago the Classic C3 dropped its wooden box packaging, going to a cardboard box, which was usually thrown out immediately. The new box is attractive and can actually be used to store the tool in the shop or work truck. It comes complete with a plastic inner tray and handle on the fold over flap.
