But I am mostly interested in cutting in degrees... If the arbor is the
right size, it would be ok... maybe.

oops.... forgot to check on the voltage they run on!
Only 669 Pounds plus VAT. List price of 836 Pounds plus VAT. Always
thought Festool tools were sold at list price only. No discounting to
them. Maybe its different in England. Assuming the 669 Pounds plus
VAT translates directly to USA Dollars, that is about $1,338 USA
Dollars, ommitting VAT. $1,338 for a sliding miter saw. That is
getting up there. Or $1,672 USA Dollars if you pay the stated list
I can argue the Domino price is sort of reasonable since it does
something unique and to me has definite speed and function
capabilities. But a sliding miter saw that costs 3 times as much as
my Makita 10" dual bevel slider LS1013? To do the same tasks?

Besides, my LS1013 is already paid for and I am blindly familiar with
it..but...but...but....when you look at that Festool, it makes you
wonder why TF, everybody always stuck the slider rails way out the
My hunch is that it uses the same blades as their plunge saws. My
Meganite distributor swears by those blades, he figures that's enough
reason to own a Festool saw.
I like the idea of twin lasers.
But for close to $ 2000.00 Canuckistani sheckels.. donnnn't think
soooo. As you already stated...it is only a mitre saw... nothing
Did not notice the positioning of the rails at first glance. That
does make it more compact in use. I wonder if you would bump your
head/eye into the rails when leaning forward to position the blade
right on the pencil mark on the board?
260mm diameter blades, 30mm bore. I suppose you could get a filler
ring/washer to go in the 30mm bore and have the opening fit your 5/8"
or 1" spindle on a USA designed miter saw. I would agree that the
blade is awfully important for any woodworking task no matter whether
the tool surrounding the blade is high or low quality.
Porter Cable has the twin laser on a miter saw. 3802L 12" miter saw.
Yes. This was brought up in another thread on Festool. Their price
can be justified for the tools where they add something innovative
that cannot be accomplished by other tools. The circular saw and
guide rail and the new Domino and that really short drill with
interchangeable chucks fit that category. Maybe a few of their other
tools too. But a 10" sliding miter saw, hard to argue that one.

Laser switch on my 10" dual-laser PC died. That was the replacement
saw for a PC which also had a bad switch. Cheap job site saw. Not
really worth fixing. I'd put in a toggle switch instead of a
switch like the factory unit. For now, I pulled the old switch and
it with a piece of duct tape. Lasers themselves get clogged with
very quickly. Keep a box of Q-Tips handy. The twin laser is a nice
set of training wheels, but you'll soon learn how to work just as
without it once it fails the second time.
