Don't worry Kreg.  It's just a fancier version of a bandana wrapped around the TS55's trigger and yanking the cord to pull it back (JOKE- DON'T TRY THIS).  [tongue]

I don't know why I would need an automatic saw to rip an 8' sheet down. Neat technology but the festool method seems faster and cheaper

The primary reason is that it's hard to drink a beer while pushing a TS 55.  [smile]

WTF Kreg, I was watching your work pants video review with my kids (don't ask!) and now I have a 5 year-old and a 3 year-old who want their own pair!

Hi Kreg,

Thanks for the offer but I'm in Canada so it could be a bit of a hassle for you. But keep the videos coming, we all love watching them!

This is the official costume of a German furniture-maker. After quite a long study and apprenticeship you may call yourself Meister Schreiner or Meister Tischler. I have seen them at work in their costume, but I think it is more used for official events nowadays.
I think the German Foggers will be more knowledgeable about this and may tell you more.

Thanks Kreg for sharing this and for costing me money!  i have seen this saw for awhile but after watching your video we had to buy it.  since we do carpentry at my company I went out and bought this saw the ts55 and the ts75 and the long rail and the parrell guides also.  it will save us time.  Love your videos also they are a real help, thanks again!

As usual, great video Kreg.  I do have a serious question though.  When you're using the parallel guides, do you square up the ends of your plywood first?  Or don't you have problems with it being out of square?

Not Kreg but here's my 2 cents.  The parallel guides only make parallel edges.  Squaring up the ends is a separate operation with a different setup, like the MFT or miter saw.

Thanks for the question and no I do not re square the sheet goods. I assume that they are square enough and usually are now after I cut my strips for sides etc then I square those up

Brice/Kreg - thanks for the reply.  Now that you say that, I'm thinking it probably is easier to square up the ends after you break the sheet down.

 did you have an accident or is that intensional. do you notice any cut quality issues because of it
