If you look at the Triton track saw and kreg they look a lot alike . If I was guessing triton is the manufacture.

This is interesting. I haven’t found a Kreg product that I didn’t like . Unfortunately I already have a track saw

Currently washed up

i have the accucut but just use a circular saw. guess its too much ask for kreg to figure a way make it where you can use the accucut track on their new stuff. lots of new stuff on that table i'd like but no way i can swing 900 bucks

This week Grizzly has it's track saw on sale for $195. Includes a 55" track. Another 55" piece is $71. Got me thinking.......

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Used one like that for many years with no problems. Mine though was made using 1/8" tempered Masonite for the base, less error IMHO in lining up the pencil marks. I used a 36" steel rule with ruler stop to mark the cut line on either side of the sheet, took only a couple of minutes to mark the lines and clamp the guide in place. Finally retired it after I bought a track saw - mixed emotions about that bu mostly positive (once the price shock wore off) - and actually had to move the fence over a couple of time so that I could cut a fresh edge, finally ran out of clamp surface on the back side of the fence.

Ended up ordering the Grizz track saw and an extra piece of track. Not only was it on sale, but also got 10% more off with the veterans discount. We shall see!!!

Grizz track saw got here. Nice solid saw. Track seems pretty good. Also came with clamp on hold down to keep it from coming off the track and a stop block for cuts less than 100% of the material width. Of course, since I never had or used one before I have nothing to compare it to. The one thing I have concerns about is the 6 1/2" blade, but I don't plan on cutting thick stuff anyway. Came with a 48 tooth carbide tipped blade. Cut some 5/4 oak planks with no problems. Not too shabby for under $175.

wow that looks great. i ordered just the kreg folding table legs today and will make my own top.i wish i could incorporate my accu cut track with some of their new toys but no luck. i also found out their bench clamps exert too much pressure to use in t track wont track.

i had bought some thick aluminum last summer to make a homemade version of these, and some 3/4 bar to drill and tap to make a couple adjustable dogs. looks like those two things, some plain dogs and a couple holdfasts will have to suffice. even bought can of flex seal to dip the ends of the clamps in after i heat and bend them a bit. i guess that will work. will see

if any po folk like me were thinking of only buying the legs of this system and making your own top be advised. all of the hardware needed to mount this on their top isnt sent out with the folding legs. some of it comes preinstalled in their top. they send out 6 u-bolts that are mounted from above in recesses shown in the pic of their top. its 3/4 mdf for $149. kreg doesnt think anyone who buys only the legs needs instructions of any kind in the box. their "comprehensive" hardware pack came with 6 u-bolts, 12 nuts & 4 u-brackets. they did put these sweet chinese finger puzzle looking things protecting the threads on the bolts for the adjustable legs so theres that.
while its not impossible to think i can lay a homemade top upside down and try and figure out where to drill to bolt from above i seriously doubt it will be on the first few attempts. with their top there are bolts preinstalled that you gives you a starting point that i wont have unless i knuckle under and buy their over priced top. theres only 8 different locations i have to guess where to attach things. this may not seem like a daunting a task to most of you but im not liking this at all. aint gonna be as easy i had hoped. the fact there was ZERO instructions in the box really stinks
