There are a variety of accessories available that add to the accuracy and capability of a track saw, and the GRS-16 guide rail square is one of those accessories. In this review I will go through the design and features of the GRS-16's, explain how they work and I also share my real world experience with them after putting them to work in my shop.
Wood dust is definitely a health concern and we are becoming more aware of that in recent years. In addition to being bad for your health, wood dust is also time consuming to clean up. The more dust you can capture at the source, the better off you are. Less time cleaning up means more time woodworking and doing what you love. As a professional, in my case and in many others it also means more production time which means more profit.
I've had the Makita SP6000 track saw for 3 years now and it gets used a lot both in the shop and on site. Where it really shines for me is working with sheet goods, which I do a lot of as a cabinet maker. In addition to reviewing the Makita, I will share some of the ways that I use the saw in my work and which accessories that I find helpful.
I have just finished designing and building a new MPT style worktop for use with Bosch or Sortimo L-Boxxes! This new worktop has the same system of 20mm holes as the MPT and therefore can be used for some of the same tasks with some of the same accessories. I've also created a full set of plans similar to the MPT plans. For jobs where you don't have space to set up the full MPT or jobs that are too small to require it, this is the perfect solution.
