    • Power Tool Cutting Guide

    • Reviews
    This cutting guide will easily handle large sheet goods.

    The two 55" long extrusions can be joined together using the included connector, which is extra-long to prevent the two joined extrusions from flexing under pressure. The cutting guide is secured to the work piece by a pair of one hand adjustable toggle clamps that slide in the underside of the aluminum extrusion. Compatible with the #1415 Saw Plate.

    Not as simple as I thought (4/5), Oct 17, 2019

    By William Nelson (QUITMAN LA US)

    I've had this guide for a while now, but haven't used it a lot yet. Getting the saw attached to the base properly has been somewhat of a hassle. There aren't any instructions needed for the guide itself, but surely could have used some guidance on mounting the saw to the plate. I had decided to dedicate an old Craftsman corded saw to this application. My goal was to mount it exactly parallel to the guide strip and at an easily set distance from the blade to the guide to make it easier to set up for use. I think it's as close to parallel as I can get, but the distance deal didn't work out. I guess I didn't measure properly, or didn't make the proper allowance for the offset from the edge of the guide track to the edge of the mounting plate when locating the saw on the plate. The result is that I don't have an even 6" offset that I was seeking. I assume the manufacturer has gone through the process many times, and I would have greatly appreciated a bit of guidance. It's a one-time project for users, but has probably done many times by the manufacturer. I do like the fact that the saw can't wander from the edge of the track, as happened periodically on my former edge guide. When I'm leaning across a sheet of plywood, that's very greatly appreciated. There's quite a bit of friction between the guide and the plate, but that will probably loosen a bit with more usage. I tried it on a project that wasn't very demanding, but set it up with a lot of care as if it were, for when it will be demanding. It came out OK, but with lots of fussing. I'm planning to make a gauge block to make it easier to measure the distance to the blade on future projects. I'm sure it will get better with practice. I did learn that a single section of the guide won't attach well to a 49" length, even though the sections are 55" long. The way the clamps are mounted prevents them from working properly when they're hanging off the end of the extrusion.I had to rearrange my setup to make more room for both guides fastened end-to-end.


    Power Tool Cutting Guide #9948 (5/5), Jan 24, 2018

    By Del Kelso (Saint Charles MO US)

    A value alternative to an expensive tracksaw. the tool guide is made from a heavy aluminum extrusion, very rigid. joining two tracks together is likewise rock solid. the clamps work very well and are a very good quality, also rock solid.

    i built my own saw mounting plate out of shop scraps and plan to mount some cleats perpendicular to the track as an aid to squaring the guides on the edge of stock. also plan to glue a block on the underside of track to hold the allen key used to join tracks together.
