The new Parallel Guide accessory for Festool guide rails will be available for purchase on March 1st. This new accessory offers greater capability to the guide rail system by providing a faster, easier, smarter way to create consistent rip cuts. Visit your local Festool dealer for more information and a demonstration of this brilliant new addition to the Festool system.
The Parallel Guide is available in three configurations. The Parallel Guide (495717), the Parallel Guide Extension (495718) and the Parallel Guide Extension Set (P00108), which is comprised of the Parallel Guide and Extensions. The Parallel Guide can be used with any length Festool FS/2 guide rail. Please note that the Parallel Guide components do not include a guide rail.
The Parallel Guide (495717) are the longer sections and offer consistent rip cuts using two adjustable stops that engage the edge of the material parallel to the cut line. They are adjustable up to 25-19/32" (650mm).
The Parallel Guide Extension (495718) connect to the Parallel Guide (495717) using a tool-less thumb screw. The Extension allows you to make narrow repetitive rip cuts ranging from 1/16" to 7-11/16" (1mm to 195mm). The Extensions must be used in conjunction with the Parallel Guide. The best value is purchasing these two components as a set (P00108).
