In other news, I had been looking at some saw tracks for the new Mafell saw for ripping work. The immediate task being the breaking down of the last plank I had for rafter stock. Prices for Mafell tracks from the same retailer where I purchased the saw would have turned out to be pretty expensive based on the current exchange rate with the euro. Googling forums I found out that the Bosch tracks are identical except for branding labels (made by Mafell I expect) and were available in Australia. I purchased a 1100mm and 1600mm track and the joining piece. Altogether they were quite a bit cheaper than Festool components of the same or similar size. I have heard here and elsewhere that the Festool tracks were difficult to mate together and have them align accurately. I thought folk here might be interested to see the Mafell/Bosch system. The joining piece is a 360mm metal piece with four cams that lock into the rail recess:

When not in use it stores in the track without interfering with the passage of the saw:

The resulting joint seems quite straight:

Chris,
No problems, I understand you've been under the pump of late, so decided not to harass you over it. I'm away for three weeks in Japan starting this weekend. Upon return I will hit the ground running with whatever you've turned out.

Cheers
