A good square?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking at buying a square for my DeWALT track and it appears as if the one from DeWALT is hard to come by. I seen one by Triton that looks like a copy of the DeWALT and claims to be compatible with DeWALT track. Is it any good or is there a better option?

I am unaware of any square for the DeWalt track that is consistently accurate. I had the one from DeWalt and it was never square to the track.

Here is the DeWalt one that's available.

The only Dewalt track saw accessories that are still on the market I think are the clamps (which are great btw) and the router adapter. I know that the track connector has been discontinued and I think it's the same thing for the square and the miter adapter.

Not much for DeWalt. I'm really considering getting some festoon tracks so I can use their accessories. Especially the parallel guides.

 

Yes I think it's the best option right now but since it is green and black, you pay double for it.

 

Bosch in my opinion has the greatest system at a good price. If they could only bring it to North America. You can order from UK but it's a pain in the ...

Just use a 12" speed square... or a couple of t bolts and a piece of plywood.

I knew it was unavailable on woodpeckers since it was a one time tool but I thought maybe someone would be selling one elsewhere but I couldn't find any. I figured it would be a good option considering it is from woodpeckers.

 

I may try a larger rafter/speed style square. My one for work is the smaller size. Empire has a 12in that looks nice. I wonder if my combination square would work?

The problem with the woodpecker is that it requires adjustment every time you use it. It does not auto-square to the track when you attach it. You could be just as well served by the piece of plywood and t-bolts, since that would have the same set up issues.

 

(Brass toilet mounting screws are a near perfect fit in a track slot)
