81 – DeWalt Tracksaw Review

Video - February 12, 2009

Here is my review of the DeWalt Tracksaw, FINALLY! As much as I tried to focus solely on the Track saw, its nearly impossible not to draw comparisons to the Festool TS line of plunge saws. Let me sum it all up by saying you need to be really picky to find distinctions that will make a real difference to the average woodworker. If you are trying to make a decision between these two saws, you will probably need to look at bigger picture things like price, system approach, warranty, and interoperability with other tools. But if you are looking for a saw that makes extremely safe and clean cuts with good dust collection, either saw will fit the bill.
