I quote a message from Rey answering in a post related to table saw vs plunge saw: ”You can indeed make grooves, dadoes, rebates, cove and lap cuts with the Festool TS55 saw. I do it all the time. I also cut small pieces with it safely and accurately”.

I just bought a plunge saw and would like to train myself making cove cuts with it to see if it will fit future needs. Could someone give me some clues how to do that?

Many thanks

I am interested in hearing how someone does this with a track saw as I have a Festool as well.

In my opinion, it is dangerous enough cutting them on the tablesaw, but when you have another variable involved (mobile saw), it doesn’t sound safe to me… I would like to be proven wrong please.

There is this interesting document from Rey Johnson I just found yesterday:

Cove cuts are addressed in it
