Festool Tools & Accessories / Re: TS 55 Reliability/Quality Problem

Blade change lovers, well not all of us use track saws to only build cabinets. If I only built Cabinets I would get the right tool, a sliding table saw. I am a woodworker and I use the track saw often to edge join long pieces. Ie a 48 tooth blade on the Makita makes a glue ready cut in mahogany. On my current job I have ripped well over 200 ft of 3/4” flat sawed mahogany and still have 2 bars of battery. That being said the Makita is killer save one thing the slop adjusters need to be checked often especially on joined rails. I may pick up the tsc 55 if it’s got the power. 2 tracks saws are better than one, 1 adjusted to rip rail 1 adjusted to the cross cut rail.

3/4" probably is OK, but the original post indicated 1 1/2" ripping (or plunging 1 1/2" into a board thicker than that) which I think would likely put more stress on any motor if using a 48-tooth blade. I have ripped 3/4" hardwood with the TS55 and a 48-tooth blade, but wouldn't even think of trying 1 1/2" rips with that blade.

It takes less than 60 seconds to change a blade on a TS-55.  Why not cut the best cut and cause the least wear on your tool?

Devil's advocate.  Why spend the time and extra expense on another blade(s) to do the what the Makita 36V can do with stock blade?

Because it is cheaper than buying a Makita 36v?  Or because you already have a TS-55 and other blades?

Peter

Peter, I wouldn’t call the Makita 36 Volt cheaper by any means.  By the time you buy the saw, battery packs and track, the price is about the same as the more capable TS 75. 

I think people make too big of deal about the weight of the TS 75.  It’s only 3 1/4 pounds heavier than the TS 75.  The Makita blades don’t have matched Kerfs like the TS 75.  The Makita forces you to change strips with blades changes. 

I’m a bit puzzled why anyone would compare the TS 75 against the Makita.  The TS 75 can handle thicker hardwoods and a wider range of materials than the Makita 36 V.

He said both domino sizes, 8 and 14, would be 70mm deep in each piece of wood.  For strength, A is better.  More glue surface area.  And two 8mm is 16mm total of tenons.  Compared to the 14mm tenon.  So more tenon wood strength too.  I think either of your scenarios would result in an excellent door.  So doubt there is really much difference.  Maximum strength with A.  But both are strong enough.  So probably go with the easier B.

I suspect we are looking at the station molds that the hull will be built on. So none of this will see water.

Agree, otherwise why would you make them removable. Unless they are doing a lot of dry fit with these, make sure all the joints work, then pull it apart and put wood dominos in.

Dominos in boat construction could work, after all boats were built for a long time with wood pegs and iron nails.  It's the sum of the construction.  But if your going to use Dominos, you would really design the boat around what you could do with them, take advantage of their ability.

System 3 makes good colors - a small drop is all you need for a decent batch of epoxy. You can customize the color mixing different ones. Amazon carries them all.

Ive done both the 27mm and 36mm hoses and while I cant remember the exact diameters you need I do remember its larger and longer than you think as its dang near impossible to get it all the way on if the sleeve isnt big enough and when it expands in diameter it shortens in length. The sleeving material I had to buy for the 36mm was not cheap, nor was the heat shrink tubing.

My concern is that the 8mm won’t be deep enough.  I’d think you’d need max depth of the 14mm dominos to make the joints resist wracking.  Would appreciate hearing from folks who know.  I remember seeing some of our Scots and English FOGgers posting about door-making.
