Homemade Festool Guide Rail Connectors


Recommended Posts

One of the few festool items that gets poor reviews is their guide rail connectors.  they are used to join two shorter rails to form a long rail.  if you over tighten them, you can put dimples into your soft aluminum rail.  the set screws engage directly onto the aluminum.  i got this idea from the FOG.  sorry for poor pic, but it consists of two pieces of steel with set screws that push them apart.  they are the same design as the makita rail connectors.  fun project and very satisfying.  the materials cost me about $20 shipped.
