    Not impressed with this connector. It includes two rails, one which fits perfectly and has set screws, and one which does not fit, and has no way of being secured. I’m not sure why this second rail was included at all, it provides no additional stability. This kit should include two fitting rails.

    First and foremost, you will need 2 sets of these to connect two 55" rails to be safe .One set and you risk bending your tracks when moving your track to a new cutting position. Product description does not state this! Since I bought two 55" rails for travel ( one 118" too long for transport) and the Makita case to hold them I thought I could get by spending less on the Festool connectors which utilize a slotted screwdriver Allen screws instead of the Allen wrench Allen screws Makita uses. Th e Festool do work, but each time you assemble, the slotted Allen heads mar the inside of track. The Makita does not damage the track as it is composed of 2 flat bars and the Allen screws simply spread the bars apart when tightening. Allen wrench vs. simple slotted screwdriver, but I am sending back Festool connectors because I don't want to damage my tracks every time I assemble into a longer track. I only give 4 stars because they don't tell you that 2 sets are needed AND because you risk losing a tiny Allen wrench.

    Better than Festool. Even for Festool owners! While last time I looked the Festool Guide Rail Connector only employed a single strip with setscrews bearing against the inside of the actual $$$ aluminum Guide Rail track. Points of the the setscrews obviously damaging the backside of the track when tightening too tight, OR allowing the tracks to slip apart if not tight enough. (I understand a Festool claim that they use slot-head screws so that not too much damage can be done to the track). On the other hand, the Makita design employs a two-piece strip connector (see above picture). One strip with headless hex setscrews embedded and the other a matching solid rail connector to back-up and distribute the setscrews clamp load. Providing a mechanical, non-slip guide rail connection. OK, so it is about $4.00 more than the Festool connector (recommendation by both Festool and Makita use 2 connectors per rail). But if you already spent this much on rails you want the best connection, and with less damage. With the ability to tighten the rail clamp sections more securely, and if you only occasionally use/cut with the connected two rails (ie: not transport connected sections, which you should NEVER do no matter who's product.) You might easily get away with only ONE mechanical connected rail pair (on the underside of the tracks (Festool or Makita) to assure left/right alignment.. As with ALL JOINED rail systems. Find some way to back-up the opposing side of the rails with an additional board and clamp to prevent a rail shift cutting into the "good" side of your cut. My recommendation for ANY joined rails "measure twice, clamp three times (start, back-up and end of rail). PS for Festool owners. First replacement of your splinterguard; consider using the Makita black splinterguard it is much stiffer and more effective that the softer "clear" Festool splinterguard. And interchangeable. PPS TO ALL TRACKSAW USERS: Clamping BOTH ends of the track to the material is imperative to any material that you don't want to waste material on a bad cut. I know Tommy (sorry, I love what you do) occasionally show a tracksaw rail simply laid across a sheet of stock, but that will not stop it from shifting left or right as you hand coaxes it. USE A CLAMP on both ends of the board. {Measure twice clamp three times} ALSO: Check out the Black and Decker Track Clamp (DWS5026) made by Irwin (?) easy to use and has a soft rubber backup pad (no obvious round "ding" in the back of your materiel. Fits all rails.
