FONSON TOOLS Router Table Plate
FONSON Upgraded Aluminum Alloy Parallel Guide System for Repeatable Cuts for Track Saw Rail Fit for Makita and Festool Woodworking Tools Hook Upgrade
Questions and Answers
Does this version fit Festool without any modification? This has been asked before but some say yes, others say required modifications. i need a definitive answer for the version currently for sale.
I use mine with no modifications on my festool track saw and get accurate cuts every time pne calibrated . i also noted some people said that the fit into the festool track was tight and did not fit into the track slot very well , but i gain i have no problems at all.
Is it compatible with Festool track rail? Thanks.
It does fit Festool but you either need to tide the screws while in the rail or you need to add a little piece of cardboard between the red top and silver piece that slides in the rail.
Will it wirk with Mafell/Bossh rails?
How can it fit on bosch and mafell rails when they fit in festool and makita? This railssystems are NOT compatible. I need some which fit for bosch. Can someone confirm 100percent that they also fit for bosch?

Very good quality and precision. Had just one issue with holes for the sliders which I needed to clear with 8mm drill bit (debris from thread cutting for thumb screws). Fits Makita track nicely.

excellent workmanship, I didn't see the original from which this product is based (I think it is taken from WOODPECKERS )I personally like how perfectly designed the profile couplings are.

Just like the other bird brand only cheaper. Even more so when combined with a makpac. When you receive the cardboard box, throw it away but keep the foam insert. It fits perfectly in a makpac size 1 which can be had for 20€ or even 17€ on sale. For comparison, the original brand asks $400 for the parallel guide system in a cardboard box and $480 for the same system in a systainer.

Honestly...I'm very impressed. I've used the other "Red brand" of parallel guides and these are on par. I had high hopes that these would be decent for the cheap price, they are excellent. After setup and calibration, I made several cuts at different widths and they all measured exact. The fit and finish isn't quite what the other brand is but is close enough for my needs and I think any woodworker would be satisfied with these guides. Fast repeatable cuts on sheet goods makes life easier when building cabinets. As far as holding up in the long run, I'm not worried at all. They fit together solidly and the stops are stout. I would highly recommend these to anyone that wants this convenience but can't justify the cost of other brands.

Arrived within two weeks. Very well packaged. No instructions, but plenty of youtube videos on this. Good quality.

The package arrived unscathed. No damage on the inside either. Simply exquisite product, accurately machined, well finished. Set it up with the help of photos and YouTube videos. Everything looks good so far. Will need to test it out with my Makita track saw and rails doon, but I anticipate no issues there.

Fantastic piece of kit and reviewed it on my channel. I also show you how to calibrate it too. https://youtu.be/4oa33DqbO3w

seems to be an excellent item. upgraded guides have the side calibration for small cuts also scale starts at 200mm which is roughly the width of a track. no instructions or parts list though
