Makita Plunge Saw
« on: May 23, 2007, 08:44 AM »
It looks like Makita is coming out with a circular saw and guide rail that looks very much like the TS55 and guide rail.  Not in US yet, but advertsed in UK: http://www.lawson-his.co.uk/scripts/details.php?cat=Circular%20Saws&product=57409.   

Regards,

Dan.

Edit: typo in the title

The Makita and the TS55 are within $100 of each other:
Makita = $355 USD.
Festool TS55 = $440 USD.

The question here will be whether the Makita can match the advances Festool has made in dust collection, accuracy, and general engineering.  My experience with Makita tools has been mixed -- some good (cordless drill) and some really bad (belt sander).

OK, I'm sorry my obsessive side is acting up here, but Dan, could you please add an "a" onto the discussion title?

Thanks,
Matthew

Hey, you're right.  Looks like it's just mastercabman who spelled it wrong now!

Wouldn't that be: "Makita Plunge Saw, eh"?  Phonetic spelling, I guess.
