Jerry Work - Parallel Rip Guide

Jerry Work, a well respected member of the Festool community and author of numerous Festool tutorials, recently was given the opportunity to review the new Parallel Guide Set (Product No. P00108) which launches on March 1st.

Jerry prepared an 11-page pictorial tutorial for the new Parallel Guide Set that we would like to share with you. From what's in the box, to set up, to demonstration and tips, this tutorial is a great resource for anyone considering adding the Parallel Guide to their Festool arsenal. In Jerry's own words, "This tutorial shows how these impressive guides can elevate guided rail cutting to the point that there is little need for a table saw any more".

We encourage you to visit "The Dovetail Joint", Jerry's website, to peruse the numerous other Festool documents and tutorials he has produced.
