Just got a Makita tracksaw delivered with an extra 55" track, connectors, and clamps. Thinking really hard about ovdering a Axial Glide miter saw today. 20% off from Acme tools. This is starting to get expensive...:eek:

I was in a pinch and had to buy a dust collector stat on Friday. My machinery guy had the black friday 15% off thing for Jet and I bought one with the remote and filter. I really need a new shop so I can get a decent sized cyclone with rigid pipe and stop this rolling around madness.

Today I bought a set of the Dewalt tough boxes to see if they'll fit better in the ambulance than the rigid boxes. Systainers fit perfect but I'm really not that big a fan of them.

Also finally picked up my deal of the century festool sander last week.

After I tuned the saw in I find it to be great. Out of the box it was a disaster. The 45s were 1/2 degree off making a frame off my 2 degrees. I had to cut the detent and then I could adjust each 45 separately. Since I did that it's been nearly perfect for making frames. It definitely makes a much nicer joint if you push the sawblade into the part instead of dropping it on it.

Thanks for the tip about the saw. I ordered it last night. I have been wanting a dedicated saw for the shop. I decided on this saw because I can set it up close to a wall. Space is always a premium.

Tried the festool wave blade in jigsaw........cuts like butter!. Very very little dust balls (foam dust)

Works awsome on cutting cardboard too. Like hacking up layers and layers to put in recycling can.

Will try it on insulation when get a chance.
Looks like it would do well on Italian bread as well.

You cut cardboard for the recycling bin with a Jigsaw? I use a knife for that.
