The Bad: I did not closely look at the picture, nor read the description. I knew 2 were needed, I thought it was a set of two looking at the picture. When I got it and saw only one, but was a two part connector to slip in one groove, I was a little unnerved. My bad for not looking into the details, but I did learn something...
The Ugly: Makita Advertises the rail and connectors are compatible with the Festool system. Instead of ordering another Makita connector, I went to my local Festool dealer and bought one Festool 482107 Connector for FS/2 Guide Rail. not only is it cheaper, but fits better, easier, and requires a flat head screw driver instead of fishing for allen keys like the Makita one does. The Festool connector is only $17.00 here, a single bar, (no need to line up two pieces), and a better fit. I paid almost $30 for one Makita connector, you can get two Festool 482107 for $34.00. Wish I looked into that before I bought the Makita connector, I just assumed the Festool connectors were more expensive, and at the time unsure of their fit on the Makita rail.
