Next month Festool will be kicking off a tour of the UK and Ireland, starting on 12th June in Sittingbourne.
The roadshow will be the first time Festool has demonstrated its new table saw with SawStop technology in the UK and Ireland.
Leo Zirkler, head of sales at Festool said: “We are incredibly excited for the roadshow to be touring the UK and Ireland. The roadshow has always been a fantastic forum for people to truly experience the Festool brand and try out our products. We are thrilled that this year we can offer our customers the additional advantage to visiting with this preview of the new table saw with SawStop technology.”
SawStop technology works using a sensor which registers when human flesh is near to the blade of the saw. Within just five milliseconds of flesh being recognised by the sensor, it stops the blade from moving – preventing serious injuries. This innovative technology keeps users’ safe and provides people with peace of mind that they are protected against serious injuries when using the table saw.
During the roadshow the SawStop technology will be demonstrated every hour, showcasing how the blade stops within milliseconds of flesh – saving fingers. Technical trainer, Phil Beckley, will talk visitors through the technology of the new table saw works as well as the key features.
The roadshow will allow visitors to really test the range of Festool products and discover the benefits of using these power tools. Festool specialists and trainers will be on hand to answer questions and visitors can also take advantage of free tool PAT tests from specialist Festool service engineers who will be offering the service throughout the roadshow. In addition, all registered visitors will be entered in to prize draws for the chance to win prizes, including the grand prize of £3,000 worth of Festool products.
