    Festool Guide Rails - 2 55" with connectors vs 1 116"

    Thread Starter: Brian Tymchak

    Morning all, I have a Festool track saw that came with the standard 55" track. I'd like to have a track to cut full length plywood but the price of the single 116" track leaves me with a bit of sticker shock. One option I'm considering to save some $$ is to buy a second 55" track and the track...

    Anyone Use Sketchup For Woodworkers?

    Thread Starter: Derek Arita

    Does it work well and is it easy to use? Is it really free and where do I download it? I'm not very tech savvy, so I'm a bit worried that this will overpower my senile, analog brain. Is Sketchup For Woodworkers different from a regular Sketchup? How so?
