Track Saw Guide Rail Case - How To Build Your Own

Find out how to build your own track saw guide rail case that is super simple to make and provides rugged protection.  Track saw guide rails are a precision piece of equipment and need proper protection when storing or transporting them.  This case keeps the edges of the rail from contacting the inside of the case so they will never get knocked around inside the case.  Learn how to easily build your own.

When I bought my Makita SP6000 track saw kit a few years ago I also purchased a second rail to join to the first for long rip cuts.  I quickly realized that I needed a better way to transport my guide rails to site to keep them protected.  I designed this case to fit my tracks into that keeps them protected and makes them easy to carry.  The key to the design is the bolts that the guide rails register on which keeps the edges of the rails from contacting the inside of the case.  This way if the case gets dropped or bumped then the rails won't be damaged.  Learn how to quickly and easily build your own shop made guide rail case that can be made from scraps around the shop.
