I didn't realize the Mafell didn't have a riving knife.

Re: Ts 55 REQ


Also the opening on the side is bigger on the festool. Might explain the mafell dust extraction being better when I tested them.

Selling an OF 1400. Make an offer. Was used for one job. When I do another deck with a radius I'm going to get the 2200.

With this design there's no chance of the splinter guard "unintentionally" falling off or moving. Not of fan of tape on my tools. I just ordered a Mafell 55" track. Thinking of getting two 55"s because they are soooo easy to connect and retiring the 118" festool track.
I have 4-55's and 1-32? I think . 118 is silly. I could even get around my jib sites with out hitting something. Whatever makes you happy Cali. If it's more rpm's then it's more rpm's....

The 10 foot tracks are such a pain in the ass to transport if you don't have a trailer. I wish they would make it hinged so you could fold it open and not have to mess around with connecting 2 shorter tracks.

The riving knife is a useless feature anyway.

It's useless for composites as well. Can't say I ever needed it on my Makita.
