Before a lot of people advised me not to buy a new tablesaw for my small shop.
So I changed my mind to do with my festool TS55 instead of a tablesaw.
But for small work pieces Festool is not so accurate that I can not make the same pieces for my projects.
Then I decided to buy a Festool multi function table or a kit of that.
But in Japan we can not buy Festools because of poor dealer network, and even if I could find some, it would cost more than twice of those in America. For example TS55 costs more than $1500. Mare a circlar saw is more expensive than a cabinet saw in USA !
Furthermore, Festool USA might prohibits dealers to sell their items outside US. So I have no chance to buy them as far as now.
I have been looking for a dealer which can ship to Japan for two weeks ore more. But no dealer received my order.
I already have a dust-extractor CT22 with only one dust bag. I have used that dust bag for more than 2 years because I have been unable to buy a dust bag.
We Japanese amateur woodworker have a lot of trouble if we want to use what ordinary Americans use.
If I were an American or had a friend in America I could buy everything I need.
And escalating price of oil prevent me from coming shopping in the USA by myself. Thesedays traveling to the USA cost me more than $1000.
