Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:

By

The Festool TKS 80 EBS-Set is the complete version of the base TKS 80 EBS table saw with SawStop finger detection technology. It includes all the accessories that you have to buy separately on the base model.

SawStop

The main selling point of this saw is the integrated SawStop technology that stops the blade when it makes contact with your hand. It uses electricity to detect contact and pulls the blade under the table and stops it in an instant. When this happens, you do need to replace the saw blade and cartridge.

Detailed look at the SawStop system: For a detailed description of how this technology works on this saw, read our description of the Festool TKS 80 EBS, the base model.

Included accessories

The EBS-Set contains four accessories that are not included in the base model, namely:

  • Sliding table
  • Separate, longer parallel fence
  • Extension table (length)
  • Extension table (width)

Sliding Table

The sliding table is not very large, but its main advantage comes from the guides. Because it moves over guides that extend past the body of the saw, you can crosscut much larger workpieces than with the normal mitre gauge. It also adds stability.

Installing the Sliding Table

Parallel Fence

The parallel fence is another great upgrade. It is much longer than the mitre fence on the base model. It also locks into place better and can move over the extension table. Almost essential if you plan on cutting bigger workpieces. The side of the fence can be moved back and forth independently of the rest of the fence.

Festool TKS 80 EBS-Set

Convenience, not price

Most companies usually sell sets of products cheaper than when you buy all the parts separately. This is not the case for Festool. Buying the base model and then the accessories separately should cost exactly the same as the EBS-Set.

So the main selling point of this set is mostly convenience, getting everything in one package, not a discount. So if you aren’t sure you need all these extra accessories, get the base model and just buy what you need later.

Machine Atlas Verdict

The accessories of the EBS-Set unleash the full power of the TKS 80, but they do come at a high price.

What we don't like

  • Expensive
  • Not actually cheaper than buying the accessories separately (so you could just buy the ones you need, instead of all of them)
  • Not suitable for cutting many pieces of conductive material
  • Both blade and cartridge need to be replaced

What we like

  • All the accessories in one set
  • Most extensions are very useful and of high quality
  • SawStop finger-detection technology
  • Great build quality
  • Relatively lightweight
