Thanks for the heads-up  [thumbs up]

Just wanted to pull the trigger on a EC 70.

Anybody familiar with the "reliability" of these planned release dates? For he TKS 80, they say (EU) July?

I could wait a few months, but when July becomes September, November, December i'm not that sure...

The instarail square is similar in function. The Festool version is identical to the grs16 PE down to even having the tapped and through holes for mounting to the mft3 guide rail hinge and the TSO parallel guides.

That work table looks sweet.. I can see a lot of MFT being sold in the classifieds when Its released in the states.

Also for us who have the CMS with the TS module, that fence for the new saw looks interesting. Looks like it might have a micro adj for it.

XXL Systainer got me curious.

All these are great for the small shop.

I can see FT getting into my wallet again.

Are these going to be released to the states in April ?

Sure hope the rail square is licensed by TSO.

The tablesaw appears to be too short.

The folding worktable cutting table could be handy. Looks like it might not be sufficiently supportive to be a worktable.

If the release of this folding table leads too people selling MFTs then they never learned how to use the MFT.

I believe the new table saw is designed to be small for people who already have the means to handle longer stock, i.e. track saw users. Track saws struggle with certain stock sizes and cuts and the new saw fills the gap and with an enhanced safety feature.

I agree. As presented without a top, it isn't a worktable which you can do assembly on among other things. It can't replace an mft either as it has no top and dog holes. Is Festool releasing other accessories to make it a worktable?

That worktable is up there with other things they make like their uber expensive ASA 5000 boom arm. Some folks with cash to burn will get it. As it is, it's just a cutting station. The Walko bench seems a lot more versatile and useful. Doesn't appear to be manufactured anymore though.

Thanks for the info. Do you happen to know availability in the US by chance?

Edit: seems strange that the “base” package doesn’t include a fence. Implies that one would use this for cross-cutting only

- The table saw is not too short. It is supposed to be a portable solution, not a steady shop saw. With the extensions it is one of the biggest portable saws on the market.

- That working cutting table is not going to be a big seller, I can see that right now. No one is going to sell his MFT for this ... thing.

- I like the extra wide systainer, I was really annoyed with the limited width of their current systainers. I already got a few tools in mind for that one.

Erika is still at least 50% more expensive. As for functionality, the TKS 80 has SawStop technology to save your fingers, a very valuable safety feature. The Erika has not. But the Erika is a pull saw, and that is not only pretty safe, it is also a very handy feature. What I also expect with the TKS 80, knowing Festool saws like my CS70 and TS55, is that they will start to struggle once you approach their max cutting depth, and the Erika will not.

It does include a fence, that thing with the semi-circle.

Just to add to the information that Alex posted:

20" x 36" table on Erika. 28" x 33" table on TKS 80.

Erika weighs 89#. The TKS weighs 105#.

Erika spins at 2050-4300 rpm. The TKS spins at 1700-3500 rpm. Like Alex noted, cutting thicker materials will probably be easier on the Erika.

No need to tell me what it is, I'm one of the few here who actually owns a saw from this family. In practice, I use the miter gauge fencey-thingy 99% of the time and that other fence is just gathering dust because it sort of sucks.

Love that! "Miter gauge fencey-thingy" is so much closer to the vocabulary I'd use than "angle stop" will ever be!  [wink] [big grin]

FWIW, I'm in complete agreement that "that other fence" sucks. Complete PITA to ever get it locked square.

Yah the miter fence is what I use now and its dead nuts on. the other fence is sitting in the shop somewhere collecting dust.

As far as the cutting table, I have 3 MFTs 4 if you count my Kapex MFT. I use 1 MFT with the extension for cutting sheets of ply.

The other 2 I set my kapex extensions on, mainly due to space limitations.

The cutting table being collapsable would be useful and free up room in the shop.

Ill see how it goes with the new shop Im going to have built.

 Its going to give me a lot more room and Im going to expand it and make a outdoor work area over time.

Then I can have 1 MFT just set premantently up for cross cutting.

YES, friends, the FS-WA/90 Festool Guide Rail Square for the international market (only) is the result of a licensed collaboration with Festool GmbH. It is produced in volume in Germany based on our engineering documentation and equipped with the TSO Latch we tooled up and began using in the US last year - but of course the international version from Festool has the FESTOOL GREEN handle [smile].

There are lots of videos on using the MFT.
It’s size does limit it’s use to panels small enough that you can pick up and place on the worktable.
The MFT-3 is taller than the previous MFT generation to accommodate taller folks.
Maybe you can swap?

For MFT height, I cut down the legs so the table height is 885mm to serve as out feed (and not interrupt work flow) for my shop tools with a 890mm working height.

In other words, if the MFT height is too tall for you, just cut the legs down. Or, mount the MFT on a height-adjustable table so you can dial the height in as-needed.

Erika spins at 2050-4300 rpm. The TKS spins at 1700-3500 rpm. Like Alex noted, cutting thicker materials will probably be easier on the Erika.

The proportions of the Erika are nearly ideal, imo. I only need a tablesaw for repetitive narrow ripping and beveling so it does not need to be wide although the option to add a side table is welcome.

The new Festool tablesaw is wider so it appears shorter than it is but I’d prefer more space in front of the blade to get stock well oriented before entering the blade.

I like a long straight fence. With such (the longer the better) you can straighten rough stock in a few passes without involving other machines. No excuse for a fence that can’t be easily locked parallel to the blade. I’m spoiled by my Paralok fence but even my old (temporary replacement after a fire) Ryobi BT 3000 fence worked as it should and also locked at the rear. It can be done.

Wow, the availability of the guide rail square from Festool was something I didn't expect.  Congrats to TSO and well done Festool!  It's probably my most used 3rd party accessory for my Festools.  Making it available across the globe for all users is terrific!  And the addition of the threaded holes suggests more good things to come!

Is it me or does the guy cutting the sheet on the table look really awkward with the TS55, I would have my hands the other way round?

Lol, don't ask for much do you :)

The one you posted doesn't look like it helps you off the ground with the sheet, also doesn't fold down or look like it would handle as massive a sheet as the guy in the video. I think it's pretty cool actually. But I don't see it being useful enough to me personally that I would pay that price.

Unfortunately, the video does not show the whole loop from start to finish, hence I couldn't tell how practical the tilting function is for a large sheet. Are the front castors locked when the titling is done?

TKS weighs 105#.

I am getting so old and broken down that this no longer qualifies as a portable saw for me. A number of us did predict that the Saw Stop technology would result in a heavy saw for its size.

That table looks pretty nice, I've pondered similar things, I think they took a lot of various ideas out there and put them together, doesn't look too bad.  I'm not sure how well that would work on a slightly un-even floor.  But for sure it would help when you are by yourself.  1200x1200 Baltic Birch doesn't exactly go up on saw horses easily.

That said, they lost me at the cost. That would be very hard to go with.  I think someone probably could put something together that functions similar for much less. But just like an MFT/3,  if you get something that really gets close, it will cost you more than just buying the real thing.  But with this, I'm thinking there is a good bit of room to make something very nice before hitting this price.  Still, if you are going to build a lot of cabinets out of heavy materials by yourself, this could be worth it.

The double long systainer, now that is nice.  It does get you about 130mm more across the corners compared to a MAXI.   This could be rather helpful for storing various extensions and rails from tools.  Parallel guides are 690 long, This should have an internal width around 750mm, so one of these could be perfect for parallel guides. Too bad the heights don't work out with the systainer 2's, good usage of them is bit dependent on having systainer stacks of same height unless this on bottom. Still, it's a format that will be nice.  I hope they aren't a freak case, much like the MAXI, but more of something Tanos will have a full family of. While not exactly following Euronorm footprint in a standard way, it does fit in. Makes more sense then the MIDI.

Just to add to the information that Alex posted:

20" x 36" table on Erika. 28" x 33" table on TKS 80.

Erika weighs 89#. The TKS weighs 105#.

Erika spins at 2050-4300 rpm. The TKS spins at 1700-3500 rpm. Like Alex noted, cutting thicker materials will probably be easier on the Erika.

Erika is ~76lbs.  The new version they include the accessories in the weight (the fence), but the base saw (what you would carry) is still 34.5kg.  Not sure what the core weight of the TKS is.  In the end it's the weight of the thing you have to carry up the stairs or load in a car that matters.  Still not light.  But I noticed this a while back when TT updated their website, had to do some digging to figure out how what looks like almost non-changes added weight, and the answer was it didn't.

The make or break point will all come down to cost and delivery time for the ping-pong table top (with motorized pop up net of course).

Question for those in Europe,  is sheet goods 3100 x 2150 a thing?  ~10ft by 7ft?    I get 1500x1500 (5x5 ft BB), and 4x8 ft material, and even 10, 12ft long x ~4ft wide material.  But is there stuff that big, I can't see how that exist, how would it be moved?

I know you have a lot more varied in size material over there unlike N.A.   I can see them making the table to handle stuff 10ft by 5ft. (3000x1500) to cover a lot of base, but this looks a bit overkill.  I think if a bit smaller, and thus lighter/cheaper it could be a bit nicer.

The TKS 80 looks good. I just need to convert the Euros to Aussie dollars (and add 30%) and wait the best part of a year for it to become available here.

I have a complete CS 50 Trimming Saw setup which I enjoy using in conjunction with the TS55 and Kapex 120. I am guessing that the side and sliding extension tables and rip fence are not going to be compatible. (anyone know if they might be?)

But is the extra 30mm, and the saw stop technology, enough justification to swap it out? My father-in-law has lost a couple of cm off two fingers using a (non-Festool) bench saw, so maybe I can justify it. Wish me luck.

I'm not in Europe, but down here in Aus we have 3600 x 1800 sheets (12ft x 6ft) readily available. Really only practical for BIG set ups though, with mechanical lifters etc.

There are a lot of sheet goods available in large sizes like 5200x2070mm (rough inches: 204.7 x 81.5)

Most lumber places will not charge you for a „transportation cut“ down the middle.
But if you want to keep maximum flexibility for your project, you may end up with huge sheets...

Sheets of Egger furniture board (MFC / MFMDF) are pretty much standard at 2800 x 2070 from any commercial supplier. Likewise MDF is common at 2440x1220 (standard 8x4) but also bigger sheets at 3050 x 1220 or 1525. So the sizing of the cart should be good for everything.

They had really better bring that table saw stateside.  [big grin]
Erika is nice but too rich for most people’s blood. The jobsite Sawstop is about $1500.
It wouldn’t take much convincing to pay up to the Festool. 

Speaking of price, I’m disappointed with the impact.  I thought they were planning to be more competitive there?  Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to trying it out.  With an impact back in the ranks, Festool 18v lineup does cover about most of my cordless needs (no recip saw).  Insert a Godfather quote about dragging me back in.

Wow, the availability of the guide rail square from Festool was something I didn't expect.  Congrats to TSO and well done Festool!  It's probably my most used 3rd party accessory for my Festools.  Making it available across the globe for all users is terrific!  And the addition of the threaded holes suggests more good things to come!

@RKA - great team effort by Festool GmbH working with us to make it happen!

The tapped accessory holes have been a standard feature for quite some time - and now used with our Parallel Guide System. They can easily be added to earlier tools with the help of our $ 6.00 GRS-16 Series Upgrade Drill Fixture (SKU 61-354 A) for accurate hole placement.

Thanks all, I've seen giant stuff being shown at the factories that make it, like IKEA's PB factory, but it goes to another giant factory.   I get how it can be useful, but in a large scale plant.  Taking those to job sites or for small one-ish person outfits is a bit hard to see. Of course it could be they are targeting making that very issue more manageable.   Still, a smaller size table  one would be nice if the size is driving cost/weight.

Love to see someone try to bring a sheet of 3050x2120 home from the lumber yard on the roof of their Golf.  [big grin]

I’d guess that the sliding fence is the exactly the same that comes with the CS 50 SET and the CMS-VL/CMS-GE. If Festool haven’t gone to the woods I think that the new mitre fence is backwards compatible too. The “V”” profile seems to continue with the TKS 80. It would be very strange if they had gone a new route.

I AM having an OFF day. Made a mistake. The sheet goods size I meant to ‘say’ is 3050 x 1220 mm, which is just 2 feet taller than the ‘regular’ size (as in 10 by 4 and 8 by 4).

The Festool and Mafell push-pull saws don't have miter slots.  These saws are designed for sliding tables you can put on the side if you need more travel than the pull function. Also not sure what "off the shelf" parts there would be, there is no standard for a miter slot design.

3/4” x 3/8” and then whatever depth by 5/8” for home store jobsite saws.

Meanwhile, some of my fellow ‘muricans aren’t picking up on the fact that the rip fence is also a crosscut miter gauge fence.  You wouldn’t  need to buy an Incra because it already comes with the european equivalent.   For featherboards and diy crosscut sleds and whatnot...we can find a way.

Some saws may have a miter slot of those dimensions, all do not. There is no Standard, just a size that a lot of saws have used.  Also why would Festool make a slot in their tool to an inch based US design. There very well may be a different common dimension used in the rest of the world, or Europe, I can see folks complaining if the saw showed up with a metric based slot, or a dovetail shaped one or a inverted T shaped slot.

I guess it’s less about the size and more the presence of the slots. Various jigs and what not assume you’ve got the slots. While I can’t think of a jig I would want that needs them that isn’t covered by one of the nice Festool attachments, that doesn’t mean there isn’t one.

Got two of the new Systainer³ M Organizers with 22 containers.
They match perfectly with regular T-Loc Systainers (of course!).
Pitty there is no handle on top of the lid. Thus they always have to be under a T-Loc.
And in my opinion the Festool logo is upside down?
Though a very nice build systainer.

Depends on how you look at it, the only time its not upside down is when its stored vertically or you’re carrying it by the handle.  At that point, the only people who can see it is everyone else but you. Not sure that matters to me

Got two of the new Systainer³ M Organizers with 22 containers.
They match perfectly with regular T-Loc Systainers (of course!).
Pitty there is no handle on top of the lid. Thus they always have to be under a T-Loc.
And in my opinion the Festool logo is upside down?
Though a very nice build systainer.


How did you get those already? Are you from Europe? Lucky!

They have started to show up in Europe, yes. I got hold of the last M size they had at a large dealer. It was one of the empty ones, so I bought all sizes of the inserts. As it happens, it was wiser as I can more easily adopt to my needs. The systainer as Neeleman says, is very well made, me to misses the handle on top... and of course, the logo is to show off when carrying and from the back when the lid is open  [big grin] I have really missed a well made compact system for screws, so when I saw this I knew that I would buy one (or two). It was well worth the wait.

May I suggest you look into the Auer product line. Very well made and a lot cheaper than the FS’s.

To me this would be a major downside. When carrying systainers, I like to stack them as much as possible to make fewer trips. I wonder how long Tanos will continue to make T-locs.

Did the sortainers not meet your needs for this in the past ?

The new Festool sortainers have transparent lids (which is new to the range) and use a modular system of boxes and a kind of pattern on the bottom to hold them in place. Which is exactly what the Auer boxes do, which makes this a kind of Samsung/Apple thing. Festool (that is Tanos) probably saw what Auer (and others?) did & have adapted it to their system.
Systainers etc. comply to a European (maybe worldwide) system of sizes (Euronorm, based on what shipping pallets measure), to be more precise they fit into a 300*400 mm footprint (with packaging exactly); and other products use that same metric. So, the Auer boxes have the same footprint.

Besides, Auer have been on the market with their system for quite a while now. And when I wanted to organize my shop they had the solution I needed. : )

So that means that AGAIN we have to resort to purchasing these outside the US and bringing them in ourselves?
Have these people not learned anything from the Grey Market imports of Cars, Cameras, Electronics... ???



If you are asking about the Festool tables, it has been written here that there are no immediate plans to bring these to market in North America.

Nice! Ill probably import the Angle stop FS-WA/90° when it becomes available and I love the worktable idea but they are nuts with their pricing, so Ill definitely be passing on that!

There are some new sand paper kits for the rotex 90 and the 125 mm sanders that come in the systainer boxes with the correct insert. Numbers Festool 576676 and Festool 576677

If I'm not mistaken the new table saw with sawstop technology is coming to North America eventually. Maybe Festool USA or Festool Canada confirmed it. This would have been a long time ago I thought I saw this.

Speaking of TID 18 it will come in one basic, 2 plus, and 2 set kits. The basic is impact without batteries and chargers. The plus kits you get the optgion between 2x 3.1 batteries or 2x 4.0 batteries. The first set kit includes a pdc, 4.0 slim battery, 5.2 battery. Another with a t18 with 2x 3.1 slim batteries. The interesting thing is the pdc and t18 kits do not include centrotec chucks

I got to have a play with the new TID 18 yesterday and had a look at the new foldable sheet handling table.

The TID kit was the one with the compact 3.1 ah batteries and the T18, all in the same Systainer. As you said, there is not Centrotec option for the impact driver, but the Festool Rep did have a specific Festool impact bit holder in the systainer case. .....A nice short impact compatable bit holder.

The folding support table was smaller when all folded up than I had anticipated it would be. It looked well thought out and nice quality.
We didnt have the time to set it up and try it unfortunately, as I was busy and the Rep had another appointment to get to.....

Overall,  first impressions of both items,..... Really Good!

Nah, rather have the Festool "themed" one and it'll be cheaper to import it than buying from TSO.
