Introducing the GRS-16 PE
Precision guide rail square for FESTOOLŽ, MAKITAŽ & TRITONŽ guide rail tracks
Like its sibling GRS-16, the GRS-16 PE is designed to make it much faster to achieve dead square cuts with your FESTOOL, MAKITA or TRITON track saw. Until now, accessories for squaring up your track saw guide rail relied on the loose-tolerance T-slot found on just about every guide rail. To overcome this inherent inaccuracy, you had to rely on a separate reference square, plus a combination of loose parts like T-bars, hex bolts, knobs or wingnuts. Not any longer! The patent-pending GRS-16 PE is completely self-contained and self-aligning, thanks to an innovative, high strength integral draw latch mechanism. Simply slide the GRS-16 PE onto your guide rail, lock the draw latch, and you're done. Five seconds to square.
Engineered for maximum accuracy and ease of use, the GRS-16 PE is precision CNC machined from a single piece of 6061-T6 aluminum and then anodized for a non-marring, high durability finish. Once secured to your guide rail, squareness can be quickly verified by observing the zero-clearance attachment between the square and guide rail. Despite its high clamping strength, your guide rail is completely supported by the straight-edge of the GRS-16 PE, eliminating any potential for track deformation over time. An ergonomic handle makes it easy to lift and reposition the square along your length of track, and machined chamfers improve comfort and handling. The GRS-16 PE is made in the United States, and comes with our unconditional lifetime warranty.
