This package contains a TS55R saw plus 2 x 1,400mm Guide Rails and the Guide Rail Accessory Kit
The TS55R is the next step on from the well known TS55, with even more features. This saw has the ability to cut a standard 12mm against a wall thanks to its flush housing. There is a fine adjuster for the plunge and the blade now has an undercut of -1° to 47° for even greater accuracy. Dust extraction has been improved and an adjustable viewing window ensures you can see the saw blade during use. These saws have the spring-loaded pivoting plunge action that combines with a super-fast blade brake to give fast, accurate and, above all, safe cutting performance. When used with Festool's guide rail system you can process sheet materials of all types with ease and accuracy. The features of this saw are seemingly endless. The 1,200W soft start motor has full electronic control to keep speed constant and monitor the motor allowing the optimum cutting speed for the material being cut, regardless of load. The clear window on the side allows you to see the blade, and markers indicate front and rear cutting points of the blade at full depth - useful when cutting out apertures with the guide rail. The cutline stays constant in relation to the base, regardless of blade angle. Other features include a rotating dust outlet for the most convenient position and FastFix blade changing system. The guide rails have a splinter guard, cushion strip to grip on the underside and a slideway top surface lining. The guide rail accessory kit contains a combination bevel for angle cutting with the rail between 0° and 180° (FS-KS), 2 guide rail clamps (FSZ 120), cable deflector (FS-AW), kickback / limit stop (FS-RSP), replacement 1,400mm splinter guard (FS-SP 1400) and two rail connector bars FSV. All contained in its own Systainer T-LOC case.
Package contains 2 x 1,400mm guide rails with anti-splinter guard and the Festool guide rail accessory kit. The saw has a 48T TCT blade and anti-splinter device. The saw is supplied in a Festool T-LOC SYSTAINER stacking storage case.

Oh so Happy BirthdayMy family clubbed together for my 50th birthday to try to stop my litany of "I really, really need Festool tools". This is what I got - and I'm so happy! This set has lived up to, and exceeded, my expectations. The quality and accuracy of cut is beyond reproach. I was doing some renovation and had to cut paper covered board. I cut the timber and left the paper undamaged, truly remarkable. I absolutely love using this set.

MarvellousHaving suffered with cheap circular saws in the past, this was a revelation (and the beginning of my delightful slide into the world of Festool). Was it worth it? Of course. The simplicity and ease of use combined with the total accuracy of cut - the guide rails are superb - make this saw's price worth every penny. The package set offered by Axminster makes sense if you can stretch that far. You'll need/want those pieces at some stage and the set makes economic sense. Quality is the usual Festool A1 and the ease of adjustment in use makes it a delight in the workshop.
