TrueTrac Anti-Chip Strip
Works great at refining rough cut lumber into flat and usable boards.
The first time I used the true track, it wasn't straight. Seem you need to double check with a long straight edge to make sure the two pieces are straight. Just butting up the joint doesn't guarantee a straight edge cut.
It’s exceedingly rare to have any misalignment issues when joining our tracks. Id say less than 1:100 units have an issue and it’s easily solved. Take a trusted 90 degree square and see if the cross cut on the aluminum track itself is off on one of the tracks.
If it’s hard to tell an alternative method to check is to leave a business card gap between the tracks rather than butting them tightly together. If this provides an automatic straight joint with no fiddling, one of the faces is not exactly 90 degrees. If you can pin it down to an extrusion we’ll replace it for free!
If the two faces are pressed tightly together and both are not exactly 90 degrees then they will override the dovetail connectors and misalignment is the result.
Thank you for the honest feedback and I wish you would have reached out as soon as the issue came up so we could resolve it!
Have a lot of slabs to flatten and decided I needed a good way. Did a bunch of research and decided on the Truetrack system. Built the frame and mounted the rails and went to work. I was really surprised at how easy it was with beautiful results.
After installing the saw base on my DeWalt circular saw (along with a new blade), I have primarily used my TrueTrac for small projects so far. In fact, it is getting much more use than I expected! The main reason I purchased it was to rip long boards cleanly to build skin on frame canoes. I was hoping it would give better results and be less dangerous than using the table saw. This has exceeded my expectations--each cut is perfect! I purchased the 12ft kit as well as an additional 2ft section of track, and this is now my go to saw when I need precision.
Thank you! Well worth every penny.
Nothing to say. Exactly as advertised. Great customer service and follow up.
