    One of the festools either the TDK or the C12 depending on whether you want power against ability to get into small spaces. i would also advise on getting the complete set with all the accessories such as the eccentric chuck the right angle chuck the depth setting chuck and the centrotec chuck.

    Yeah leave the festool to Diyers. Their stuff is rubbish. I used that saw on a track its rubbish. What are you on about mazball/officeboy. festool is the nuts.the best investement you can make

    Id after agree with MAZBALL on this one. I bought an 18volt makita with 3 batteries for £175 about a year ago.
    I picked up a second hand bosch cordless with 2 batteries and charger (all work well), from a carboot for £20 to ease wear on the makita and it has the same amount of taulk as the makita plus the chuck doesnt release as easily.

    Festool are one of the top power tool makers in the world. You rarely see them on site because the kit is expensive. I prefer lighter drills to 18v as they are less tiring to use all day, but sometimes you need the capacity. However the latest lithium drills will change all that, as they do both.

    you keep embarassing yourself as much as you want mazball. If you seriously dont know about the quality of festool and reckon they are DIY kit then that just shows the level of your experience. That saw retails at £369 and is worth every penny.
