This rail system lets you use a portable circular saw much as you would a track saw, for true cuts and improved safety. Your saw mounts onto the included 7 1/4" × 15 1/2" universal base, which travels along the extruded aluminum rails to eliminate risk of a wandering cut and potential kickback.
Each rail has a strip of sacrificial plastic edging; your first pass automatically cuts the edging to the exact blade position of your saw. Once cut, the edging overlays the surface of the work right to the kerf, greatly reducing chipping and tear-out.
Positioning the rails is easy; aligning the edging with your cut lines simplifies square cuts as well as those at any angle to the edge of the stock. This direct-reading capability also applies to bevelled cuts – you simply cut a new edging strip to correspond to the specific blade angle.
You can also use the base independent of the rails for freehand cuts. It provides a broad, rigid support that remains registered on the work until the blade has completely cleared the cut.
Plunge-cutting through the included zero-clearance insert plate creates a slot matched to your saw’s blade, so the plate fully supports the material to eliminate tear-out. A spacer fin on the underside prevents kickback by holding the kerf open to keep it from binding on the blade.
The system is available with a single 54" guide rail, or with a pair of 54" rails with connectors used to create a 108" rail, useful when ripping full lengths of sheet stock.
Each version comes with one saw base, a pair of track clamps (2 1/4" maximum material thickness) and two edging strips per 54" rail. Additional insert plates for the saw base are available individually and extra edging strips are sold in packages of three.
