FastCap has come out with another useful gadget, this time a cost effective and ingenious way of storing track saw tracks.
The Track Saw Rack allows you to mount tracks both horizontally and vertically to the wall. It’s compatible with all the major brands – Makita, DeWalt, Festool, Kreg Adaptive Cutting System, and Triton.
The rack is installed with a couple of screws and the track simply slots in place.
A quarter turn of the cam-style lock secures the track.
What’s particularly clever is the suggestion to mount it on the back of a garage door, a space that is rarely utilized, and ideally suited for storing a bulky and lightweight item like this.

When I purchased my Festool tracks I also splashed out on the bag, as I wanted to ensure my purchase was protected. Despite picking it up in the UK, it still cost me $70. When I recently purchased a 75″ track, I wondered how I could keep it protected and out of my way, given that it wouldn’t fit in the bag. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a cost effective way of keeping tracks safe and out of the way, but also accessible?
This is exactly what a customer of FastCap was thinking. As with other woodworker and contractor-designed products, they worked with FastCap to bring the product to market, and in return get a cut of the sales. A win-win.
The same week I was pondering how to store my track, FastCap announced this new product, and I immediately ordered a set. They are a Washington-based company and so I received a set the next day. As usual, I was impressed by FastCap’s product quality.
My garage door is made of opaque sections, so that wasn’t an option. Instead I mounted it vertically on a small wall between my garage and my shop, a wall that almost seems to be perfectly designed for the task!
It’s exactly what I needed!
