I hear such great things about Festool products. Will Festool ever make a table saw?

I’m hoping when they do the saw will incorporate SawStop technology and be sold at Harbor Freight so we can break all records for thread length on LJs.

They do, sorta. Not sure if its sold on this side of the pond but they make a table that the track saw mounts to the underside.

Can we slap a big “Made in China” sticker on it too, just to make sure?

I guess I’m on the wrong side of the pond, never seen such a thing.

This article is a bit old, maybe they gave up on the idea.

If Festool put a 10” cabinet saw on the market my guess is that it would retail for somewhere north of $10,000 USD. Any other bets?

I’d bet $15,000. I like their tools, but cannot justify the price for home use.

Yes, but you can’t afford it. :D

That $500 drill/driver only drills and drives but notice that all the other tool manufacturers are trying to mimic it now. Bosch just unveiled a 12v drill with a brushless motor. Too many woodworkers figured out that the over-sized and heavy 18v drills are pretty cumbersome for general woodworking.

A 12v lithium ion drill with a brushless motor and long battery life is really handy to have.

Festo seems to have confined its stationary machinery
operations to factory-class machines such as louver slot
cutters, shapers, tenoners, mortisers and power feeders.
They also make a lot of pneumatic and probably
hydraulic components.
