...and picked up one of these badboys





Used it for the first time this weekend to cut up some 18mm ply to mock up a model of a conran shelving unit whose design I am using as *ahem* "inspiration" and it was a joy. The cut was perfectly straight and perfectly clean. It was cheap construction ply as well so I was VERY impressed. I'm yet to cut any hardwood yet, but it's looking like the TS55 may well be a viable alternative to a table saw (for me anyway). The tool really does ooze quality.

All I need to do now is buy the additional splinter guard, an extra rail, the connector bars and the parallel guid for repetive cuts....... :D

How come you didn't go for the TS55R?

They are a brilliant tool, I was a bit of a cheapskate and went for Makitas version though. It's easily paid for itself already.
