I wish festool made there own T-Tracks
« on: July 19, 2017, 05:36 PM »
Then maybe i wouldn't have to resort to buying a brand new guide rail and taking an angle grinder to it. Yes i have seen that several other makes are compatible with the festool clamps but nobody ships any of these to Denmark  [mad] and even if they did, the angle grinder solution will still be a lot cheaper. One guide rail = 2 T-Tracks.

Really? Cutting up a guide rail is cheaper? Don't you have Bosch-Rexroth aluminum profiles available? Their 30x30 extrusion has 8 mm slot.
I'd rather make a t-track from square aluminum tube by cutting a slot with track saw or router, than ruin a guide rail.

This would be a possibility but the 30 x 30 is going to be to bulky to build into my workbench :(

Axminister has T-tracks and they ship to Denmark.
Or did you check their prices and found them too high.

4 x 1200mm lengths of T track from Rutlands, posted to Denmark would be less than £55 sterling.
I bought some last year and my Festool clamps fit perfectly.
