I would have thought that Festool was a much larger company than SawStop. They both make great tools. The SawStop table saw is the absolute best and safest I have ever used.

The news I read is the other way around. TTS bought SawStop. TTS owns Festool.

That would make more sense. SawStop only makes 4 or 5 products.

Guess I read that wrong, not be the first time today. I'm sure I'll do it again tomorrow.
