Can this be adjusted on the MT55 like the TS saws?

NO (that i am aware of). The only setting available would be to adjust the wiggle on the track to make it snug fit. I really like the fact that those knobs are on top of the saw (similar to the two green ones on the festool).

I have a TS 75.. and is there an adjustment to move the blade in or out? If it were.. stupid me, am not aware of it.

Attached is a picture. Hope it helps.
I just removed the plastic lip.. moved it further and stuck it back. Then used the MT55 to trim it. Now it is adjusted for the MT55 which i hope will be my primary saw. Festool baldes are thicker. I noticed the same on the TS75 when i used the Tenryu blades as well.

When the TS 75 first arrived buyers who also owned a 55 (ATF or TS) were annoyed that the 75 cut down the splinter guard by about a half mm. Looks like the MT 55 cuts a bit beyond where a TS 55 would cut.

The position of the Festool saws can be adjusted.

The MT-55 does have adjustment, just not much of it, well when using it with Festool or Makita rails that is.
When on the Mafell rails, with the plastic base insert mounted, the blade is close to the splinter guard as you’d expect.

It’s like Mafell are saying they prefer us to use their rails. Which makes sense as they’re superior.
Whenever I use the MT-55, I always use the Mafell rails that came with it. The saw feels like it’s gliding on air with them.

How do we adjust the blades to go in or out of the cutline on the festool saws?

The mt55 is the best saw I have ever owned or used, I kinda want a second one while they are on sale. Finally got a p1cc, it every bit lives up to the hype. Now I want a dd40 lol

I would never have bought these items if they were not on sale.
The MT55 would replace my TS 75. The MT55 is the best saw i have used.

The DDF40 compliments the Domino XL beautifully. Love the Domino XL and the connectors. DDF40 is easy to use and very precise. Just the LR32 is about 500$. With this tool no big set up to drill shelf pins. Very quick and intuitive for a domino user. Fantastic for sheet goods.

The P1CC is like no other. No comparison.

I’ve said before, that in my opinion, the MT55 is the best designed plunge saw available.
However, my 36v bluetooth Makita is still my favourite, and my very little used TS55 has now been sold.
