Festool offers two types of clamps for the guide rail that comes bundled with the TS 55 EQ plunge circular saw/track saw I recently purchased. The more affordable ($36 for two) bar-style clamps are slow to adjust, and the quick-clamps are a bit too high priced for my drained budget ($39 each).
While clamps are not essential accessories for Festool’s guide rail, I thought they’d be handy, but not at nearly $40 a pop. I happened to come across Dewalt’s own tracksaw clamps over at Amazon, and wondered if they were compatible with Festool’s tracks.
Given Amazon’s great return policy, I figured I’d give Dewalt clamps, (~$40 via Amazon) a chance. As it turned out, yes, they ARE compatible with Festool’s system. They’re a perfect fit, and also work with Dewalt’s new work stands and standard 1/4″ t-tracks.
