True Trac Simple Square
Please use the drop down menu above to select the "Right-Blade" or "Left-Blade" variant - Looking from the rear of the track saw, right-bladed saws have the blade to the right, and left-bladed saws have the blade to the left.
A simple bolt-on rail attachment for the TrueTrac Saw guide rail system, utilize this 16 inch length Simple Square for quick and efficient 90 degree crosscuts on plywood or dimensional lumber!
The Simple Square attaches to the track via two 12 inch length self-aligning connectors. The longer connectors average out any variations in the track for consistent performance and the body of the square attaches to the connectors with four shoulder bolts via tight tolerance reamed holes.
For the first installation, follow the set up instructions to reference the square to the track of your choice. After the first reference you will be able to remove the square from the track and reinstall without needing to remove the shoulder bolts from the square.
Please expect approximately 1/32 - 3/64 inch variation at the end of a 4ft cut. Shorter cuts will experience less drift.TrueTrac Simple Square Instruction PDF
I have ordered three other True Trac products and have been using them with satisfaction. I have ordered a Simple Square after realizing what everyone else knows...boards off the shelf of the lumber store are rarely cut square. I had to learn the hard way not to make that assumption. The square kit came today (I really do appreciate the value of the kit) and I set it up. It took about 4 or 5 tries to get it really square. I had to loosen all four connector screws as well as the shoulder bolts, but once I did that, it squared right up. I will use it on the next project, but I did check it against a board I squared up the old fashioned way, and it was dead-on. My only suggestion is to make one of the connectors a little longer than the other one. That will make it easier to slip the assembled square into a track section. One connector would go in first. Getting two lined up just right at the same time can be exacting.
This jig makes squaring up quicker. I accidentally (stupidly?) ordered the wrong sided one at first. (Make sure you pay attention to that if you order one). But Jacob took care of it quickly. Great support on the products!
The system works great. The Simple Square really helps you square up the work piece and get true 90 degree cuts. The Guide Rails make cutting sheet goods a breeze. I haven’t used the Toggle Clamps yet but the Guide Rails really hold on to the work piece.
I built this work table and shelf with plans I got from the Internet and a magazine. The angle cuts for the shelf were so easy with the TruTrac system.
I’m very happy with my purchase and look forward to building many more projects.
Everything they say it does it will do. Makes it nice when ripping 4X8 sheets of plywood, can do it all by myself.
Best thing ever. Put the jig down after alignment to track, cut away.
