Festool Sword Saw

Jan 13, 2015

Category: Gear

Whether you need to cut the crap or cut through all the red tape, you always want the actual cutting process to flow like a hot knife through butter. So when the job calls for penetrating through beams, hard insulation, or some crazy polystyrene creation, what do you use? It just might be this Sword Saw from Festool.

Consider it the chainsaw version of a circular saw, ready to make rapid and precise cuts through wood and most other materials up to 7 7/8″ thick. It features an integrated guide slot in the aluminum die cast base plate for accurate cuts using the guide rail, a bevel feature that tilts up to 60 degrees when making compound miter cuts, and a dust collection port to keep you from wearing your recently sawed debris.
