Hi Dave, thanks.Simple speed square rail square - easy peasy
Simple speed square rail square
A quick and clean, easy peasy, no nonsense rail square.
As I were looking for inspiration, for rail guides on the big www, I saw this clever version, believe it was at Festool owners group, but could not find it again - but thank you to the guy, who came up with this clever idea.
A short rail square is not as precise of course, but for a lot of construction work, it will be plenty and it can be made in a matter of minutes, all you need is a bolt, washer, star knob (wing nut) and a speed square.
18,5 cm / 7 inch speed square mounted on the rail.
Almost too easy, laugh.
Here you see how it works.
Just push it up against the wood you want to cut.
A standard bolt, where two sides are grinded in, to fit the width of the T-track on the rail.
You can also buy a special made bolt.
Just like this.
No drilling needed, just use the angle slot.
Slide it on to the rail, push the square lip hard against the rail edge and tighten the knob.
I told you it was easy.
You can see the acrylic version, I were working on, on the table, that was what set it all off, this will be next part of the blog.
Hope it can be to some inspiration, or even straight cuts.
This one is so easy, it's almost too easy… laughs.
It was nice to get, this monkey off my back.
