Q:When a second guide rail is purchased, does it come with connecting rods to attach it to the second rail?
A:No, guide rail connectors must be purchased as well
A:You have to buy the connector separately. It is not included.
A:No, it requires the 194579-2 guide rail adapter (sold separately).
A:No it does not come with the connectors. Also, you will need to purchase 2 of the connector kits. I found this out the hard way.
A:No it does not. You will need to purchase them separately. They were out of stock when I ordered so I used the festool #482107 $18 each 2 required and they work very well. Be careful not to get the set screws to tight, the track is aluminum and can bend. They don't need much to hold them in place.
A:The guide rail connectors are sold separately. Two connectors will provide a solid connection; one will work but it will have some flex.
Q:Is this a universal rail. I have a (Skill's) circular saw and wondering if this rail fit on my saw
A:No, the guide rail is not universal. It is made specifically for the boot of Makita circular saws.
Q:can I get a carry case or bag for these rails
A:You can purchase a Festool 466357 Guide Rail Tote Bag.Price $95.00
