Now available for pre-order! This is a brand new Seneca Woodworking product that is currently in production. Orders placed now should begin shipping in mid to late December. We have a limited number of slots for December delivery, and as these sell out this status will be updated with the leadtime for new preorders. Shipping updates will be posted to this page.
Seneca Woodworking Guide Rail Dog Hooks are a pair of attachments for the Festool guide rail that quickly and easily secure your guide rail to a pair of dogs on your MFT table. This ensures that your guide rail is always square with your table, and also adds an extra layer of security to prevent your guide rail from moving out of position before or even during a cut.
To use the Guide Rail Dog Hooks, simply rest your guide rail on top of your workpiece then slide the rail slightly away from you so that the hooks engage with the dogs. The guide rail will register perfectly every time. This is because the Guide Rail Dog Hooks feature a slot that is tapered on one side and parallel with the guide rail on the other. This means that when the hooks connect with the dogs, you'll get a tight fit free of movement, and the guide rail will automatically register in the same place every time. This means if you're using dogs, clamps or a rule attached to your MFT table to set the width of your cut, you won't have to worry about your guide rail moving and creating a cut piece that's undersized or oversized.
The Guide Rail Dog Hooks are designed to work with our 70mm and 40mm tall bench dogs but will also work with many other 20mm diameter dogs on the market. We offer these dogs in two heights for working with different material thicknesses: the 70mm dogs allow more cutting depth for thicker material, while the 40mm dogs provide extra clearance for the saw motor when cutting very thin material.
Guide Rail Dog Hooks are made of aluminum and CNC machined in our own shop here in Clarion, PA. We offer the rail hooks as a set by themselves or as a kit that includes a pair of 70mm and 40mm dogs at a discount. Preorder and SAVE!
