But is it really a better design or just typical modern German
engineering for the sake of engineering?
And there's the rub. I'd have to see it in action or go hunting for
Another thing meriting mention is it is not cheap. 760 was the lowest

I'm not an engineer but I do have a lot of background in how things
work or wear (Machine Tool Rebuilder in another lifetime) and I have
to say that the more moving parts or joints the more chance for
"slop". I have the Bosch 12" slider that I bought when they first came
out and it's still real accurate but the tubes are just a c hair
sloppy. I haven't looked in the manual but I think I can take up the
I look forward to more reviews by "wreckers" who have hands on
experience then I might sell mine and upgrade. It looks real cool too.
Well, that certainly is a glowing review, but I'd never heard of that
web site, so I wanted to see what sort of review they gave to the
Festool CMS. Umm, they didn't. They haven't reviewed a single
Festool item, other than the new Systainer and a 3rd party saw blade.
How can that be?
That's kind of an odd omission, no? Maybe that's one of the Mercury
News type of review sites that always give glowing reviews to movies,
even the ones that suck. I know the Bosch doesn't suck, but they just
bought right into whatever Bosch fed them, have no on the job
experience with the saw, and, well, it's not even on the market yet.
Time will tell if the linkage stands up to use and abuse.

I'd have to argue with that. Sealed ball bearings do degrade over time,

Perhaps there is a wee bit more action on those steering bearings?
