Now you can make dead straight, silky smooth, splinter free cuts in hardwood veneered plywood with a portable circular saw. The secret of course, is the use of a Festool TS 55 or TS 75 EQ circular saw and a Festool Precision Guide Rail.
The unique Festool guide rail system is designed for use with Festool products, so adapters are unnecessary. Two soft, grippy, cushion strips underneath the guide rail are strategically located to prevent slippage and splintering. Upon first use, a hard rubber edge strip is trimmed back by the tool so that it precisely indicates the cut line for future work without calculations for base plate offset. Special “C” clamps fit into a slot under the guide rail for obstruction free work when absolute positioning accuracy is required. Made in Germany.

Comments about 55'' (1400mm) FS 1400/2 Festool Guide Rail:
I ordered both the 55" and 106" with my saw. The 55" is more suited to crosscutting where the extra length of the 106" isn't needed.The rubber grips hold without having to clamp the guide rail, making it very fast to lay in place and make the cut.I don't know if you can buy the saw without the guide rails but without the guide you have a very expensive power saw. With them you have a saw that will rival a table saw in cut quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
Used in combination with the 55" rail that came came with my saw, I can easily and accurately cut 4x8 sheet goods. I use Festool's rail tote bag to store both rails together.
