Default the new tracksaws from Bosch.

this is good news.

http://www.tool-rank.com/index.php?o...&tag=track-saw

few years ago I received a prototype from Bosch.
after my testing and feedback ...
they told me not to even send the expensive prototype back to Chicago.

now I see that the new Bosch tracksaw is more like a normal saw.
I like to see a front dust port and antichip protection but this is a good start.

Is it supposed to work with your track without a base? (they coming around?)

No.
We talked about it and it was better to follow the other guys.
This way we can have all the tracks similar...easier to mod and combine.

You remember the original ez track?
we already have the molds and patent and after we get the Bosch track is going to be easier to make the ez-one track ...again.

back to ez.

Dino,

Like you said it appears to be more like a normal saw. From what I can see it looks more like the Hilti than anything else I have seen. If it has a plunge capability, it would have to be from the rear.

I can't believe Bosch would put this saw on the market without dust collection. That is one thing I like about the Makita. Dust collection is far from perfect but it keeps it out of your face.

Also thinking about Bosch, I don't think I have ever seen a Bosch saw with a brake. Maybe there is a old die-hard some where in that pile of German engineers.

Randal - From what they said in the article - Compatable with Makita, Festool, Etc.,- The Bosch could cut on the EZ rail but the edges would not align properly. Mike G. made an adapter that he used with the Makita to extend the EZ rail and with that add on the EZ rail will work with the Euro track saws. The Worx has the bottom track located a bit differently.

Burt,
the simple moduni base that I use on the festool is easy to make and fit.
all saws need a nice sub base to glide and protect the saw and tracks,
They all need good antichip protection on both sides of the blade.
They all need good dust collection.

the strips that they use on the track are coming out after some good usage and the strips on the track is another replacable item...by design.

The bottom line is that we have all the solutions for those who like to replace the dangerous tools or to get into woodworking without a second mortgage.

I saw that on the rail, but did read it as two saws were coming out (so one for the EZ rails was a thought). Mike G's adapter, wasn't that the post on the old EZ forum (EZ developers forum), the modunirail. The adapter that made the EZ rail, a plunge style rail to the right?

So what, the EZ has no replaceable antichip strips by design?

yes Randal.
easily slidable and replacable. Not using glue, chemicals ans heat guns.
I'm talking about all the extra strips allover the tracks.
better to use a plastic base than 4 plastic strips.
The Dewalt tracks have 4 strips at the bottom and maybe more in the top?
why not use strips at the saws?

Being that I have never seen one (other then the Festool and I had no reason to pick it up), your thoughts weren't clear. Photo's in this case might have helped (read it wrong).

Thanks

Randal. I will buy any tool that I think can provide the edge in one application.
I dont think many shops cut stuff like we do all day.
aluminum, plastic, wood and aluminums, plastics, woods...
Inside and outside the shop.

My Dewalt track is missing all strips after 2-3 months?
I use the Dewalt ( battery plunge saw) to make some quick cuts outside.
Ebay it tomorrow...but the plastic strips are missing.
replacent cost and time to redo the strips?? no way.

I will try to sell the saw only.
maybe they use better glue now. I dont know.
The Makita plunge saw is a keeper for the UEG that is under daily testing.

Dino from the pictures this saw looks fairly stable and at 235mm would give a decent depth of cut on the rail. I can't wait to see it in person. A moduni track capable of bevels would give it a good bevel depth. Thanks for the link . As far as good dust collection it is hard to beat a ez dust port.
