SPECIAL MARKETING SECTION PORTABILITY AND WORKING THE JOB SITE for 2013 PORTABILITY and working the job site Every now and then somebody revolu-tionizes the way that we work. In Wall-ingford, Connecticut, that would be Brian Way. He has taken a panel truck and con-verted it into a portable workshop. Yup, that’s been done before -but not like this! Brian has come up with hundreds of inno-vative ways to set up and store tools and supplies in the spirit of “lean”, using state-of-the-art products like Kaizen Foam to customize every drawer and nook in the truck. He believes in efficiency and even has a Festool dust collection system built into the truck. Speaking of Festool, their new TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Saw is so efficient that it’s capable of replacing a table saw, miter saw and panel saw on the job site. Compact and exquisitely engineered, it has snazzy new features like micro-depth control and a riving knife. And speaking of saws, the ultimate up-date for a miter saw just has to be Saw-Gear, a stop system that makes measur-ing obsolete. Just dial in the dimension you need and the stop slides to that precise position. It’s fast, accurate, and totally portable. As is the unbelievably quiet JC10 air compressor from Rolair. This oil-less, two-cylinder, 1HP unit is so quiet that a finish carpenter can run it on a job while the homeowners enjoy a peaceful lunch in the next room. Now, that’s working the job site! www.fastcap.com .........................................44 www.rolair.com.............................................43 www.tracksaw.com .................................40-41 www.sawgear.com .......................................42 MAY 2013 WWW.WOODSHOPNEWS.COM 39
