I got my 2008 Festool catalog in today. New to come in 2008 is the new
sliding compound miter saw. Pretty cool and lots'a nice feature I have not
seen on other saws. Pricing is pretty steep but hundreds less that
someone's estimated $1600. Catalog price is $1300.
This saw gives you a great blade to begin with, twin user adjustable lasers,
very efficient 91% dust control compared to the competition, dual bevel,
tilts right and left and the bevel is zeroed in by a crank knob. Cuts up to
4 3/4" thick material with a 250 mm/ 10" blade, weighs less than 50 lbs,
variable speed. Includes an angle transfer device to eliminate measuring
angles. Easy and fast blade change.
I wonder if it comes with a Systainer? '~)
