Default ALDI Tools

Spotted the ALDI (Workzone) track saw. £79.99.
Looks like a pretty good buy at the price until you read the reviews.
For me the track would need to be longer, it has two 700mm sections, total length 1400mm. Of course ALDI do not offer any extra track.
Shame because I was on the edge of ordering one.

Festool tracks look to be 79.99 for 1.4m, so Iím tempted to just buy two of the Aldi saws

Because they are cheap I don't expect them to be the best but if they last over half as long as the more expensive ones then I just buy another.
To be honest they have, (touch wood, up to now) all been rather good for me.
Obviously not as hardy but with care very useable.
