Nice looking jig Gary but $$$$. I guess maybe in a mass production shop the time saved might be worth it but using a T-Square or really any square does about the same thing unless I'm missing something. But who am I to say. I bought a Domino 500 and have used it twice in the past 8 months.......

I was thinking of buying that for my track saw but I just use a square to line up both ends before clamping the track to the board. The TSO is expensive and something I can't afford.

There are tools for the haves but not for the have-nots - and then there are the must-haves. I don't own any of this elite brand's products...guess I don't need it.

I would want to know if it`s accurate enough before I shelled out that much cash for it. If I`m cutting a sheet of something expensive up, and on my budget almost any sheet good I consider expensive, I`d measure up both edges from the end to make sure I was cutting square. I don`t even trust a good 4 foot T square for something like that.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for your opinions . I'm working on a project with a panel 48 1/8 x 30 1/8. I got a little tax money back think of buying.

Looks like an interesting tool but I don't use a track saw. I use an edge guide set up for my circ saw, mark the two ends, clamp it up and "let 'er rip"... I guess I would still make two marks even if I were to use something like this so it would not be as useful.

Nice, but too rich for my blood and doesn't help the way I work...
