-- Sold By The Pair, Maximum 1" Mat'l Thickness --
The TrueTrac Toggle Clamps are designed to go on the underside of your TrueTrac guide rail system, and are available for use in situations where the non-skid material on the anti-chip edging is not enough to keep the guide rail secured to the workpiece.
We recommended these small toggle clamps for use when routing, cutting bowed or warped lumber, when cutting material with a slick surface finish, or when added confidence is needed with expensive materials.
Includes two adapted guide rail Toggle Clamps, pre-assembled and ready to go.

useful clamps

As a new user of my TrueTrac I was unsure how well the guide track would stay in place. Especially when ripping 8 ft pieces, I have additional confidence when I use the clamps. They also help me place the guide in the exact right place as they will hold one end when I adjust the other. I was puzzled by the fact that they seemed to get out of adjustment (tightness of clamp) after a few uses, but then found out the bolts holding them to the base were loosening. After tightening them, they held their adjustment. I'm glad I spent the money to have them when I need them.

What Handy Gadgets!

These clamps are amazing. Even tho the TrueTrac guides have grip to them, the boards we were using were somewhat warped, and it was great to be able to easily clamp the guide down to ensure that nothing slipped. They install and remove easily. Great product!

True Trac toggle clamps

I ordered a pair of the toggle clamps. The first time I used them I had a problem. The first clamp slid right into the slot in the underside of the track just as it was designed to do and clamped onto the support surface. That was really nice. When I went to slip the 2nd clamp into the slot, it only went half way in and would not budge. I pulled it out and tried again. Same problem. It would only go half way in. I used a little oil to make things slide better but no change. I repositioned the work and the track so I could use the clamp in this position and made the saw cut. When i had a chance I worked with the clamp more. By comparing it to the good clamp I noticed a physical difference between the two. The good clamp had a raised ridge all the way down the center of the black body piece. this ridge acted as a spacer to stand the clamp body away from the metal tongue and track, giving it clearance. The bad clamp did not have the ridge. There was no clearance between the clamp body and the tongue and track. Once I saw the problem, I disassembles the clamp, added 2 metal spacers between the clamp body and the metal tongue that slides into the track slot. This did the trick. The re-engineered clamp works just as well as the good clamp. It appears that there was a manufacturing defect in the bad clamp.

Toggle Clamps

Although the anti-slip strips work well, I wanted the extra clamping power of the clamps. The clamps are easy to use and move to different configurations of the True Trac System. On long 8’+ rips on expensive plywood, the extra assurance of the Trac not moving was worth the price of the clamps to me. You invested in the True Trac System, invest in the clamps and accurately rip your sheet goods for many years to come!

Just what I needed

Ripping down plywood on sawhorses or a table saw has always been awkward even with another person assisting. The expandable table was easy to set up and feels solid when cutting large or small pieces of wood. No more need for assistance. Breaks down easily and stores completely out of the way.

Finally able to use

I purchased my TruTrac system a few months ago and was finally able to use it. I bought a dedicated saw for it and set everything up when I got the system. I finally used it today and I am very pleased. I had to cut some plywood down and what a difference. After squaring an end, I was able to make the cuts I needed in less than half the time it would have taken. Precision is built in and no more variation due to the user. If I can use it, it must be idiot proof. Thanks for a great system. I’ll be calling when I wear this one out.

Dust Collector

Does it make a difference on how far the saw blade is forward into the zero clearance dust chute? I centered the sole plate of my Makita saw on your track guide so the sole is just over a inch back from the front of the guide. My saw curf is about 1 inch long on the top of the dust chute.

Russell,

Honestly, kind of - If the saw blade isn’t cutting into the nozzle it won’t be as effective, as the concept is trying to keep the dust creation point inside the actual vacuum nozzle itself so all of the fine dust is extracted.

That being said as long as the blade has cut into the nozzle it should function just fine!

TrueTrac Pro-Series 4' Starter Kit

Love my router sled!

My sled kit with the threaded rod insert has been amazing. I love how few moving parts there are, and how sturdy the rails are!
