Trimming a door bottom, back beveling a door, and beveling shelves
I recently worked on a video series for Festool in which I covered examples of how you might use a Festool track saw in a shop or on the jobsite. In the following videos, I demonstrate how a track saw produces exceptional results when trimming down doors, how using a track saw can save time and additional steps when back beveling a door, and how a track saw offers a better solution than a table saw for making complex bevel or miter cuts.

Trimming a door bottom
The guide rail, or track, provides a quick and easy way to reference your scribe line, and the saw can be used to bevel the cut. In this video, you can also see that a track saw, when used with a dust extractor, can allow you to work in a client’s home without concerns of dust and debris.
Back beveling a door
A track saw produces finish quality cuts and is a better solution compared to planing or other methods.
A track saw can also overcome the capacity issues of making such cuts with a miter saw. The compact and lightweight design of a track saw can save valuable shop space, and give you the ability to make these types of cuts and others on the jobsite.
