Festool TS55C Australian Release Date !!!!

 

Hi All,

Following a random post, by Blair Brydon, one of the heads of Festool Australia, on the woodwork forum website, it’s now confirmed that the Australian release for the TSC 55 is August 1 2014.

I’ve found a couple of new videos which you may  of may not of seen which will give you a bit more info on the new Cordless TSC 55 prior to its arrival.

The first video is from Festool USA’s connect 2014 event which was held in March this year and features Festool USA Application Trainer Brian Sedgeley demonstrating the TSC 55

The second is from ITS in the UK and is an in depth look at the tool, covering battery compatibility. accessories, the new Fastfix 2 mechanism  reveals that  the TSC55 is a brushless saw .

As more information becomes available closer to the release date, particularly the shelf price, I’ll post it here.

As always, be safe and have fun.

Cheers

The New TSC55, Cordless Plunge Saw

tsc 4

Hi Guys,

Well,the rumours are true, Festool today have announced the release of the TSC 55, the cordless version of the ever popular TSR55 plunge saw. Due for European release on the 1st of April the TSC 55 is powered by two 18 volt lithium Ion batteries which will  cut in excess of 30 meters of 35mm benchtop

Please watch the video here to give you more of an idea of this exciting new addition to the Festool range.

At this stage there is no information available as to ETA, Price or scope of delivery. My best guess is that we’ll see it sometime later this year, possibly around October.

As always your comments and questions are available.

Be safe and have fun..

TS55R & CMS Module

Hi Guys

 

Todays post is all about the new CMS module for the TS55R plunge saw. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the CMS system, it is in essence a Triton workcentre on steroids.

It offers a really accurate and easy to use module for the TS55R saw, a module for the PS300, 400, and hopefully PS420, jigsaws, a linisher module and possible the most outstanding router table on the market today, the CMS-OF, which fits all of Festool’s routers. though, my personal favourite is to use it with the OF 2200.

Please watch below to see the Wood Whisper’s video review on the CMS router table.

I had fun with the CMS TS55R unit but must admit to being a bit perplexed by the lack of clear assembly instructions and the inclusion of components from the old CMS TS55 Module

As always, your questions and comments are appreciated.

Be safe and have fun

Enjoy!!
