Makita saw (SP6000J) on FT track
« on: September 17, 2018, 01:04 PM »
Can trunnions (plastic tilt pieces) on Makita track saw be adjusted such that the saw matches splinter strip on an existing rail.
I.e. on TS 55/75 trunnions can be re-positioned few mm laterally to match different saws to the same rail. Does Makita allow similar adjustment?

In another thread someone said he made both Makita and Festool saws fit the track the same in relation to the splinter guard but it wasn’t clear if he adjusted both saws or only the Festool to match the Makita.

Makita has 2 screws under each tilt mechanism block that allow lateral movement and toe adjustment. A couple of mm max.
