Lightbulb Kreg Adaptive Cutting System

It looks like our friends at Kreg Tools decided to give the Festool MTF a run for itís money with a pretty compelling offering with their new Adaptive Cutting System.

It has a lot of feature you would only expect to see on a Festool system and Dewalt like a riving knife, anti kick back, off cut chip chip guard on the saw, a dust bag, parallel cutting guides ect...

Whatís some of your throughts on Kregís new track saw MTF offering? Do you think this will stack-up well against Festoolís MTF offerings?

MY first thought was, "I can't afford anything like that".

My second thought was, "Eh, if I ever need something like that, I'll just make one".

ive been thinking of a flip up table like this one in the video then add t track dog holes ect... when i saw the new kreg thing i might buy the folding legs and then it will fold up neat and tidy like my table saw. the angled supports on the kreg look like they attach to the sides. i doubt mounting hardware comes with the bare base. have to see how they attach but it should be doable

The Kreg System isnít cheap, itís about 40% of what the Festool MTF solution costs. Itís relatively cheap when compared to itís competitors.

The track and saw are about the same price as its competitors. May look into it!!

I find the product should do well and the price of the track and saw are competitive, but the package is way to much !
Kreg has a good reputation and a following so I think they will sell many. I however have a hard time justifying spending that much for something that I already have and use, a simple saw specific straight edge home made, inexpensive and works well. They are way less expensive than Festool.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

There is an interesting fact however you can buy the top for $150 and the dogs for $29 . If they are accurate like an mst top. Prices come from amazon.

Weíll still have to see some professional product reviews to see itís real world performance and itís strengths and weaknesses.

The thing I like about my Triton (or any) track saw is how easy it is to make a scoring cut, then the full cut, thus eliminating tear out. I have to wonder whose design they followed and who the manufacturer is. Kreg has a pretty good reputation, but I don't think they make tools, so this is a first effort in that regard. I'd bet they're paying close attention to detail.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
