DetailsWith the TS 55 REQ portability and ease of use, and you have a precision-cutting solution like no other, at home in the highest-end cabinet shop as well as an onsite remodel. With the addition of micro-adjustable depth controls and a flat housing for flush-cutting against walls or adjacent surfaces. When used with Festool guide rails, you have ultimate control over the TS saw for perfectly straight cuts. Add the replaceable splinterguard, and a splinter-free cut is achievable on both sides of the blade. Spring-loaded riving knife (splitter) keeps the cut kerf open so that the material does not pinch the blade which reduces the chance of kickback. The slip clutch helps to minimize the risk of a kickback and minimizes wear on the blade, gear case, and motor. Blade changes are easier and safer using the FastFix system which locks switch and arbor simultaneously. The TS 55 makes the actual cut right on the edge of the scribe line, even on bevel cuts. Simple depth adjustment allows you to expose only the part of the blade necessary for the cut. The plunge action allows cut placement anywhere on the cut line for straight cuts or cut-outs into material. Variable speed allows you to match the speed of the saw to the material. The electronics also maintain a consistent speed under load. Rotating dust port lets you direct dust away from the saw, user, and the material or connect it to a Festool CT dust extractor for tool-triggered dust capture.
