Cutting The (tablesaw) Cord; Festool’s CSC SYS 50 12 months on…

For all 10MW Plus members


Time to cut that cord? I noticed a little bit of scorching on some cuts recently and I realised that I’ve had the little Festool cordless table saw for almost exactly 12 months and I’ve never actually cleaned it out, so in this video I’m going to open it up and have a look, give the blade clean and while I’m doing all that we’ll have a chat about how the saw’s done over the last year. Enjoy!

Hey Peter great clean up video and as so many have said i'm back into envy mode 🤐 I am very surprised you did not "retouch the teeth of the blade" given you have used it extensively over the year (think it must have gone a little blunt by now or am I just excessively obsessional with my blades 😳)

Thanks Graham! Honestly, I’ve never sharpened a blade in my life and I suspect this may not be one to start with! It’s still cutting really well - and even better now the blade’s been cleaned! 👍

A challenge for Peter’s creative mind — a micro-adjustment mechanism for that fence.


An add-on sacrificial board that is a ‘bolted-on’ with threaded rod is my starting thought. That can give or take a smidgeon with a slight turn of the double nuts. But it will still be fussy to align the ends of the fence. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Cheers Niraj; yes, it's the way the saw is designed that doesnt lend itself well to any kind of aftermarket add-on. Like you say thoughm, a creative challenge! 👍

Surprising little sawdust in there after a years use 😁. The dust collection on my Bosch GTS10XC site saw is appalling, and I am starting to realise that it is no longer as accurate as I need it to be.

Bosch missed a trick not fitting a rack and pinion style fence like the dewalt, which would have made it so much better.

However, since I got my tracksaw and 10minuteworkshop rail hinge, I hardly ever use the table saw 😁

Thanks Colin - yes I was surprised at how good the dust collection was, and how little had ended up inside the saw! 👍

I am looking at a new table saw after using my Lidl Parkside for the last five years Peter and now I am green with envy, doesn't happen to me often but the Festool is just something else and out of my justifiable price range. 😂 Great reminder for a cleaning session which as I dismantled my Parkside I also did. I also use the Trend cleaner, great stuff.

That's a nifty little mini hose extension Peter, is that a Festool accessory?
