OK if you have special needs - I have too, deaf, eyesight going, can't pick things up from the floor (arthritis) , so I sympathise! If this kit helps then of course it's a good idea..... I don't do much with hand tools, because of an injury to my right shoulder using something like a hand plane or hand saw is not something that I can easily do, I also have a problem with my right leg which means that any operation that involves shifting my body weight from one side to the other is out of the question. ...
But in general:
I never queried the usefulness of a track saw and the plunge cut is a smart bit of design.
But I don't see the point of all the other gubbins. Parfman even demonstrates (8.30 minutes in) how easy it is to use a straight edge with a couple of clamps, without even the track. He doesn't seem to show how you align the second cut (I might have missed it) which presumably you do in the old fashioned way with a tape measure and pencil marks.
Anyway it's clear that it's only about cutting sheet and not some sort of universal woodwork system - which is implied by all the promos and expensive add on gadgets - and unconvincingly demonstrated on some of the vids. So I got the answer to my original question!
