I have a 2.7 rail for ripping sheets. I expect both then Festool and the EZ joining systems are very good, but prefer not to take the chanceManny":2suyck4h said:.... the use of 2 50" guides for ripping boards. I wouldn't trust any joining system to give me a totally straight edge.
How about joining two 1400mm festool guide rails together to cut a straight 2400mm lenght does that work or not?
What appeals to me about this system is being able to use a router with it, presumably with the festool rail you can only use a festool router.
Hi John.johnelliott":1sqihkfd said:I've read the reviews as well, they are very interesting. I would have two concerns, one, the use of 2 50" guides for ripping boards. I wouldn't trust any joining system to give me a totally straight edge. Presumaby the makers do a longer guide?
The other concern is more important, and that is the quality of the cut. This is the beauty of the Festool. When the quality of cut on my first one deteriorated it was still better than what I would expect from an ordinary circular saw, of which I have owned a few- Black and Decker, Skil, Makita etc.
It seems to me that although the EZ Guide system is more sophisticated and more elaborate (and cheaper) than the Festool system, if one bought it, one would still be missing out on an important part of the Festool 'experience'
Hi Per.Woodfella":rs3y0q8l said:I do not have the ez guide system, but I do have the festool.
Dino's reputation in the USA is first rate though. His guide system
first rate also. I went with festool because of the duct collection.
I would like to comment on joining rails. I join two festool 1400
rails and the cut is perfect. I am positve that Dinos system will
give the same results.
