I have a Festool ROS* and a Bosch ROS. The Festool is better. Is it enough better that I should send 3x as much for it? Sort of a value judgment. If the Bosch rates a 92 out of 100 and the Festool a 96, I’d have to think about it.

  • I got this on special for $59, so it was a no-brainer.

If I was a trim carpenter doing miter cuts all day, I might consider their Kapex. But I did without a miter saw for 20 years of woodworking. So probably not.

And I do not for one minute think a track saw will ever replace my table saw. Can’t do repeatable cuts to a fence, miter gauge, or stop, can’t do tenons, can’t do rabbets, can’t do raised panels, can’t do dadoes/grooves, can’t do accurate miters without a lot of fussing, etc.
