      Comments about 6-1/2 in. TrackSaw Kit with 59 in. Track:

      This is a very good product and it provides excellent results. The finish level of the tool is not up to Festool standards, but the quality of the cut is on par with what I get on a cabinet saw from my Forrest Duraline Hi-A/T saw blade. For the $150 price difference, as a non-professional I recommend the DeWalt. The saw is easy to set up, and it came perfectly aligned – setting 0 degrees on the miter scale puts the blade at an exact 90 degrees from the saw's base. It requires just a bit of fiddling with a screwdriver to zero out any side-to-side play on the track. And the downward/forward motion you use to push the saw down feels natural and has about the right amount of resistance – not to easy, not too hard. The included 48 tooth ATB carbide blade is very good and suitable for making tear-out-free cuts in hardwood plywood.

      I got the 59" and 46" tracks and a connector bar, and connecting the two lengths works for ripping 8' sheets of plywood, but only after some tedious adjustment. Once they're connected, the tracks stay in alignment (assuming you don't bang them around). You have to trim the rubber slitter guard at the ends of the adjoining tracks, and even then, the tracks aren't perfectly matched, so you have to use an accurate straight edge across the joint between tracks, and then adjust the connector rod. That rod goes in the back of the tracks, making it hit-or-miss to get the tracks into perfect alignment. It's possible to drill and tap the "up" side of the tracks and use 7/64" set screws, which would make it much easier to align two tracks. The alignment rod is secured by four set screws that require a 3mm Allen wrench (not supplied). A 7/64 will work but be a bit loose in the screw heads, bringing the risk of rounding them off with repeated use. If you frequently rip plywood lengthwise, buy the 105" track which is available as an accessory.

      Dust extraction really works, and you really need it. Connect a standard dust extractor vacuum hose directly to the track saw's dust port.

      Comments about 6-1/2 in. TrackSaw Kit with 59 in. Track:

      I bought this saw because I got of tired of borrowing my son-in-law's. I help him with his custom furniture business. I use this saw to trim the ends of coffee table tops made from 1 1/2" maple, usually 48" wide. I get a perfect cut every time and very little sanding is needed. I looked at the other brands but since I was used to using the DeWalt why change. I have a hose that fits perfectly in the dust collection port and there is very little dust escapes my Oneida dust collector. For my purposes it is just what I need. I would recommend getting the clamps for the track.

      Comments about 6-1/2 in. TrackSaw Kit with 59 in. Track:

      Some of the knobs are not easy to adjust or are not intuitive (some feel flimsy). The saw cuts better than described. Paper thin slices can be taken off with great percision with no chipping. I would recommend the saw. A big plus is that unlike other similar saws, the gauges are non-metric.

        Easy to line up marks on a sheet, clamp & cut. ( However it would have been helpful if [...] it was noted that special clamps were needed )
