Parts unknown - literally!
« on: May 07, 2018, 02:04 AM »
I ran across a small plastic bag today while attempting to organize my garage.  The bag contained the parts shown in the picture.  I don't remember what they were for, but I do remember them being of some importance.  The aluminum bar is 2 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide.  The bag also contained 4 flat head screws and two nylon set screws.  I think they would be for one of the following: Festool, Incra, Leigh,or Seneca.  If anyone knows what these are for, Please let me know!

Are they really aluminium?

I do not recognise them from any of the Festool kit that I have used and I don't think that it is a Leigh jig item either.

This looks like something intended to fit into the channels in the guide rails allowing you to attach another part with those flat head screws.  A T connector for a parallel guide system?

Ah, these are used with the narrow stock adaptors for the seneca parallel guide system.  Scroll down to the 3rd page on the link below and you'll see them.

Thanks RKA!  I have never used my Seneca parallel guides with the narrow stock adapter so they have just been in a drawer for a few years.  They are too nicely machined so I kind of figured it had to be something of importance.  Thanks again for finding out, or knowing, and letting me know.  I am not sure why I didn't keep them with the black anodized bars that they attached to.  That would have been too easy I guess!

And thanks for everyone else that answered.  Fog users are the best!

I didn’t know what they were, however, I did know they weren’t a Festool part... the machining was too nice.  [eek]
