Two weeks on and off. My brother came over an hour before the crew showed up and helped me finish getting everything hidden.

Flat housing so it cuts closer to a wall.

-1 to 47 degree travel.

Dual scale for one with track and one without.

Micro depth adjust.

The outside splinter guard can be used for all depths of cut and for any bevel, or it can be removed and you have a sight window.

I believe the DC is a little better too.

They had a bunch of led lights and a couple different trolley set ups for the camera to move on.

Re: Vintage Machinery And The TS-55R

I believe it is May.

I think it is like most Festool's, around 500 bucks.
