Festool's new crosscutting track saw, designed for carpenters, is a variant on the company's original track saw in which the saw blade stays above the track until it is plunged into the workpiece. The new HK 55 EB and its 18-volt cordless cousin are mounted to a short rail or track, and the blade stays below the track level at all times. Tracks are available in three lengths, and the 6 1/2-inch blade has a depth of cut of 1 15/16 inches straight down and 1 7/16 inches at an angle of 45 degrees. Both the corded and cordless model have a riving knife built into the blade guard. Blade depth is adjustable, and the saw can make angled cuts up to 60 degrees. The saws go on sale in the fall. Prices are still to be determined. Read More
