Just curious  . . . Do the specs show improvements over the previous model? Like motor? Any others?

The new models aren't on EKAT yet so difficult to tell whether any parts have been replaced/updated/are different. All will become clear within the next month I would think.

Any word on the new cordless Vecturo and cordless grinder. Found a screenshot of the technical info of the Vecturo. not sure if anyone has posted this yet. It is from a different forum I am also apart of. http://forum.toolsinaction.com/topic/14416-new-vecturo-spotted/?tab=comments#comment-201155

Nothing I've seen yet other than the model names. I'd expect them to be released in the second half of 2019 so news will likely trickle out between now and then.

The TKS 80 table saw is going to be at a woodworking show in Munich in January, and that's not available in the first half of the year to my knowledge, so it's always possible there may be other "new" tools being shown there too.

Seems they also moved the storage location for the miter gauge. I have hated the original location since day one of owning!

What I don't like is that I have to remember the orientation in which to insert it (it fits only one way), apart from that it works.

I'm not certain about the new storage location (at the back) being a better solution though, will it reliably hold the miter gauge in place when folded down on the UG cart and is accessibility, regardless of the current miter setting, better than being able to put it into a hole at the front?

Strangely these new Kapex saws are not mentioned under New Products?
Maybe because these are updated R-models?

Looks like there going with the smaller batteries as in the Ergo 3.1ah batteries. Wonder what kind of runtime there getting out of them? How do the the sanders fare out with them?

The tail end of the Vecturo in the screenshot looks very similar to the tail end of a PSC 420 with its standard non-ergo battery inserted and seen from above, though - same protrusions left and right of the main body.

TKS 80?

I mean that kind of has to be it. Pretty excited to see this little guy especially with that dust collection. I guess I have to start saving up for the $3k they'll charge.

The REB models are also showing on SA Festool website along with a new crown stop attachment #203356 but the old version seems to still be compatible. New one looks like it might work with the UG cart based on the photos.

Interestingly enough, the C18/T18 Sets have new numbers and have a "new" on their page for that option.
However nothing has changed inside?

This is on the SA site and UK Festool website (uk still lists old option, sa not) - I assume most sites are the same globally

C18/T18 change the charger. Old version of SET - charger SCA 8. New version of SET - charger TCL6.
Saws are now equipped with a battery Bluetooth.

Couldn't agree more.

On the upside, it looks like the TKS 80 therefore shares table and profile dimensions with the CS 70 and MFT-3/VL so will be able to utilise other accessories such as the extension tables and sliding table etc.

Looks like a nice saw, can't help but think it would not steer me off from the pull saws considering the small-ish table.
Probably too expensive to justify as an on site saw - probably some weight penalty too - and I would probably gasp at the price with the much needed add ons to even bring it close to the convenience of a good sturdy table saw for stationary use.

I applaud the effort, it will appeal to some I guess. Blade is 10" and 254mm - hopefully not a proprietary hole mount.

It looks like the CS70 parallel fence on the video - which would make sense. Not sure if the table looks wider than the CS70? That would mean no compatibility with the CS70 VL due to width but the VB table should fit since the LA fence fits...

I wouldn't bet on it.  People have thought that for a long time, hasn't happened.  Anytime you start mandating destructive features in a product that doesn't go over well.  Even when it is for safety, it doesn't go over well.  Airbags in cars were not mandated by law until the late 90s, well after they had become standard in all cars.  While hot dog protection systems I think are appreciated by many, I don't think very many folks want it forced on them, and definitely not when there is a destructive/consumable aspect to it when it goes off.  Get the design to be done completely by electric braking or similar where it's just a reset and go on, then it would be a bit different.

The Bosch Reaxx Design does not damage the blade.  I can see that once patents run out, and there are clones on the market it becoming standard and eventually required.
