Excerpt: This blade is a great alternative to the fine crosscut blade that comes on the TS55REQ if you are stacking 2 sheets of 3/4" plywood to cut duplicates. The oem blade makes pretty heavy going of thicker stock, but this guy just powers through, while still making a pretty darn smooth cut. Just don't push it too hard, and it will cut almost as clean as the 48 tooth blade. I am very pleased with this blade!
Excerpt: Wow. You'd be hard pressed to find a cleaner cutting blade. I used the universal blade to cut wood strips for gluing together a workbench top. Each cut was glue-ready; no sanding, no planing, they were ready for gluing. In addition to offering the best cuts going, they are durable and reasonably priced. Frankly, if you've got a TS55 or TS75, I cannot see even considering alternative blades. Also, this blade is great for plywood, etc.

Excerpt: I’m starting over with my workshop and this is my First purchase for it. I ordered this saw back in June from my local Woodcraft, It arrived 3 weeks later in their store for me to pick up. The saw and rail came very well packaged and received no damage from UPS’s punishment. The manual is very nicely done and is easy to read. The action is like butter and glides effortlessly down the rail.
Excerpt: Ive had the track saw for a while now and I must say I love it… as some of you know I am a bit of a Festool junkie, I cant speak for other brands of track saws as I havent used them, but this one is great. Everything from cutting sheets of material to cutting a countertop on a mitre with no chipping and actually have it work on site!
