Thanks for that info Andy. I ve been toying with buying a “cheaper” track saw for a while now. I think I ll pull the trigger based on your recommendation. I did look at it on the HD website too, and it looks good to me.


I thought it was broken when I first got it. I tried to hog through all 8/4 at one time and it kept cutting off. Silly me. Then I realized from listening closely to the vids that guys were making those cuts in 2 or 3 passes. Even my friend with the Festool said he can’t do one pass. Once I realized that I was a happy camper and happy with my purchase. The edge was just as smooth as a jointer or table saw with the stock blade that came with it. Never took the 60 toothe out of the wrapper. The WEN tracks fit other brands inc. Festool. Get the tracks and clamps. Like I said, less then $250 for everything.

PS The other benefit of the track saw is that you don’t have to muscle big boards on the jointer. The boards stay put. The saw moves.

It’s basically a light-duty skill saw that plunges.
