TSO parallel guides?
« on: February 17, 2018, 03:18 AM »
Any update on when they may hit the market? I sold my Festool ones -- Looking to get a set from another manufacturer but if these will be available soon, I'll wait!

Parallel guides?! Could always go with the tried and true Seneca or Precision Dogs versions.

@broseiden

I wanted to give you a heads up.  I spoke with Hans  @TSO Products since my post.  Not only has the flu struck but also a dead computer while waiting for another.  That is the only reason that he hasn't responded to you.

He told me some stuff but it would be better coming from him when he is up to it.

Hope that you understand.

Peter

I use my Precison guides with Incra scales in conjunction with a TSO GS-16 PE all the time.  Great combo.  I actually have two sets of Incra Plus rule tracks that I use, an 18" and 48".

Thanks guys!

I totally understand Peter -- Health is more important than work anyway. Was just curious as I was in the market.

Meanwhile I ended up ordering a set of Precision parallel guides as I'm doing a bit of casework racking out my Paulk-inspired trailer. In what little free time I have, that is. The thumb screws to attach them to the rail seem preferable to the Seneca offering IMO. Anyway I'll look forward to hearing when the time comes -- really impressed with the GRS-16 PE I received from Ultimate Tools a couple weeks ago and anxious to see what they come up with.

I went with the Precision Dogs version too. They work great! Didnt see any benefit to the higher priced Seneca version.

-back at work I respond to the question about availability pf our new parallel guide accessory:
If you have an immediate need for a parallel guide we suggest you purchase a currently available product – deal with the “today”.
 
With the help of BETA Tester’s input we have launched tooling and aim to have the product available for purchase in June – sounds longer than it really is.

Thanks for your interest and concern
