Track saw track hold downs
using the scraps…

This is just a little extra, made from the left overs from the repetitive cut’s jig.
When I made the attachments in the last blog, I made the first of them a wee short, so I trashed them.
Then I remembered I saw somewhere this alternative way of holding, the track to the table and made me a pair.
(I think it was on the Festool owners group page, so there’s credit for someone there).

This is how it works, but it will be especially useful on the go, where you can clamp the track to anything, using standard clamps.

The making…
The rest can be seen in last blog, so I will not be a parrot here.

Put a spacer under, so the hold is just a wee lower than the track, just enough to hold it down when the clamp is tightened.

Front and back.

That’s it, ready to go.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, it sure was an easy one.

Best thoughts,

Yet another nice little fix.
