Rip Guides are now available to purchase on our Shop.
Rip Guides are used to easily and precisely make repeatable cuts using Festool track saws and guide rails. Basically, Rip Guides are parallel guides for Festool guide rails.
These guides adapt Incra T-Track Plus, with its built-in measurement scale, to fit the Festool guide rails. Using the Rip Guides cuts can be made precisely from 1/16″ up to the maximum length of the t-track.
The guide brackets, adjustable stops & Narrow Stock Adapters are CNC milled of Acetal, a high strength plastic that is dimensionally stable, easy to machine and has low friction and good wear properties. Rip Guides should provide many years of use in normal shop environments.
Rip Guides can be used on any length of guide rail and with any length of t-track suitable to the cuts being made.
Rip Guides can be used on a guide rail mounted to the Festool MFT, with the Rip Dogs precision bench dogs on the MFT, or on any other surface suitable for cutting plywood or dimensional lumber.
The Basic Set of Rip Guides consists of:
- (2) Guide Brackets
- (2) Adjustable Stops
- M6 Thumb Screws, Button Head Cap Screws & T-Nuts
The Master Set includes all the above + (2) Narrow Stock Adapters and necessary hardware.
Setup Instructions provide tips and methods to precisely cut stock narrower than the guide rail with or without the Narrow Stock Adapters and also precisely cut narrow stock to length.
