Sorry, but I don't see the point of adapting a euro tracksaw to use on EZ track.You'll lose the same line bevel cut ability and about 3/8" DOC in using EZ track as compared to the eurosaw track the saw was designed to use.

If I recall correctly, Dino and company experimented with several of the tracks including the festool and determined they could be mounted on the EZ One. That would seem to be the best approach.

I agree. Dino had talked about marketing a kit of required hardware but I don't think it happened.

Guys,
The bridge is made to be universal.

If you were to adapt the B300 to take eurotrack, one of the advantage's of the euro tracksaw on it's designed track is same line bevel cutting. You should make sure your adaption doesn't allow the saw to cut the leg of the B300 when bevel cutting.

A bruiser of a saw. Some nice features for a framer. Doubtful they built their own motor/gearbox I wonder if it's Skil 77 based? Wouldn't think Skil would like that.
They are local to me, WA anyway.
Here is a video that shows more detail. I do have to wonder how rigid the saw/base is.

all new. more power.
I think is the best saw in the market.
I research the saw and with the ez touch...is a winner on the tracks.

The saw is definitely different. I would prefer a right hand blade. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Good point. I'm guessing about 99% of the EZ users use right blade saws. Take some rethinking on everyones part.
Not sure I see the advantage over a 5008MGA
