Kreg Tracksaw


Well someone finally put the blade on the correct side of the saw on a track saw.

Many times I've wished I had the option of a blade left track saw.
Dewalt seems like their track would make it easy.



Don't think I'll be trying the Kreg though.

Re: Kreg Tracksaw


Bought the dewalt 60v tsaw. I like better than the TS by far.

Cut on either side of the track.

Cordless motor runs smooth.

More cutting power.

Depth gauge in English units and factors in the track height.

I have used Dewalts before but I didn't care for the plunge action...just a little different.

Re: Kreg Tracksaw


The blade left looks like it would be easier to use. I'm so used to side winder circular saws that using my makita track saw always feels awkward. I find myself walking around the workpiece, flipping the track around and trying to get the cord out of the way on a lot of cuts. Still love having it though.
