Hilti 267e ripping
« on: March 01, 2020, 11:18 AM »
I recently remodeled a pre civil war attic space into two bedrooms, bathroom etc. joists ran perpendicular to the rafters with 3 main beams to connect them. the middle one was warped 3 1/2, yes 3 1/2 inches in the middle. in-tacked horse hair plaster ceiling underneath. new wiring ran everywhere through the joists so sistering them was out. so after carefully cutting away the joists sandwiching the beams with LVL's I proceeded to custom rip every joist in in that floor.. I have a TS55 and a HK both battery operated and felt they weren't up to the task. found a hilti 267e on ebay for $180 in great shape. fashioned a washer/spacer for behind the blade to bring it to that magical distance just beyond the splinter guard and i was set. with a 14 foot trac it ripped boards for 2 days strait.... It's a beast. heavier and louder than a regular saw. dust collection is great. has a blade guard lever for your thumb and dubs for a regular skil saw.  I would be afraid to run any corded festool saw through that. So in conclusion: its a big dumb noisy awkward framing saw that can rip boards strait with a track all day long....I guess that's all i really needed to say at all.

I picked on up off c-list a few years ago, love it.

It's really nice to have a tracksaw that takes a standard el-cheapo blade. I also bought a metal cutting blade for it, that and a short piece of Festool track makes cutting steel siding a pleasure.
