You need to buy TWO (2)!
Forest City, NC
Festool Guide Rail Connector 1 per Pack - 2 Recommended
As my title says, if you are going to use these to join two guide rails for the TS-55 or TS-75 you will need to purchase two. Why they don't come in a two-pack is beyond me.
Plus, I think they are a bit pricey for a straight hunk of metal with four set screws, but that's Festool.
Also, the set screws have shallow slots. After 4 or 5 uses the slots are already worn from the screw driver slipping. I will be looking for Allen wrench (hex hole) set screws to replace them.
Other than that they do what they're supposed to. I recommend it if you need it. I have a 55" track and a 42" track. Joined that gives me a 97" track for cutting down the length of sheet goods, but with no run-on or run-off for the saw, which makes cutting the ends awkward and potentially sloppy. Two 55" rails joined would be better. But I may eventually pop for a 106" rail.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
HOWEVER - Some Guide rails can be difficult to align properly. Check that the ends are machined to exactly 90 deg.
