What is the workbench being used in the video?

The black bench with dog holes is the Kreg Mobile Project Center

@TSO Products can you divulge additional details on the GRS16 accessories that you are working on - what additional functionality are you hoping to provide via the accessory?

@supimeister  - see reply  # 296 on the Thread about the original GRS-16 Post.
We will introduce an accessory for the GRS-16 and GRS-16 PE GUide Rail Squares which wwill permit you th not only square up the rail to the workpiece but simultaneously set the edge distance from the left side (call it a parallel guide accessory).

It will be designed to be usable at each end of a longer cut using the GRS-16 PE to which this accessory will also  fit (designed to face in the opposite direction as well).

Putting the adapter holes in the production GRS-16 series "leaked" this piece of marketing information  but "we cannot tell a lie" - so we patiently hear the question and answer it too.  Too bad we're still using "old technology" where have to complete a design, prototype, Beta test it, go back and improve what comes up short, test some more,... finally get ready to launch production and eventually start shipping. That's why it will ship after Labor Day as far as we can see right now.

With the MTR-18 and PTR-18  Triangles in production and shipping now, we can turn our full attention to completing this GRS-16 accessory.

Did you guys see the custom made green versions?


Apparently the guy just ordered them pre-anodized and had them done green somewhere else.


I think Id prefer to have one done clear (silver). I think it would match the rail nicely.
If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!

@tazprime38  - good question Tariq. You'll have to make that judgment when you see what the accessory we are working on  can do for you. Our accessory product is still in the development phase. We are more anxious even than you may be. Thank you for your continuing interest. For some reason did not see your post until just now.

Was this new parallel guide idea binned? I don't see it on your site?  Sorry. Just got to the bit about releasing after Labor Day. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with  [smile]

Years ago I made a big 75x100cm speed square out of birch plywood. I lay the track against it and I have a perfect square cut every time. It took me 10 minutes to make if I recall correctly.

Hi Hans

Another question comes to mind, will the psrallel guide attachment allow for narrow rips, ie thin strips smaller in width to the guide rail?
