All of the Festool stuff I have owned has been very well engineered
and with very good ergonomics. The tools mostly hold resale value
well too.

The Festool jigsaw cuts with less vibration than others. It also
cuts very straight due to bandsaw-like guides. The large planer
does things other planers cannot do. The dust collection on all
the tools would be difficult to improve on.

The track saw system is the original and now has some good
competition and I certainly have complaints about it, but I’m
sure all the track saw systems have weak spots.

For a pro it saves time, and for the hobbiest with money to spend
they provide convenience, precision, cleanliness and emotional
validation.

Festool excellence is very real but I won’t argue that the stuff
is spendy or recommend it to anyone but the most serious
woodworker.
