Jigs For Using Festool Parallel Guides w Extensions
« on: January 31, 2018, 12:01 PM »
I have the festool paralell guides with the extensions. I like them I got them dialed in and they give me a very accurate cut.

What we all know is the saddle  config of the extensions make them sort of a pain to use.

I dont have a dedicated cutting table I use 3 MFTs as my work benches. So I use the PGs with my MFTs

Im interested to see what jigs/ set ups others use/ made to use the PG w extensions easier to use.

Unfortunately as I said many times here Im not that creative but many of you are.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't use mine very much as most of what I do is in the shop.  That being said my only modification was to screw a small plastic tab at the far end of the squaring rails so that they did not fall down and keeping the guides in plane with the work piece.

I just made an egg crate style support to be clamped on top of the mft.  It breaks down and sets up pretty easy.  Just have holes in the end of each board so I can hang it out of the way when not in use.
