Actual Length of the Plunge Guide Rail is 55" and not 54". The Makita Website and other Websites are incorrect in their specs. Our Technical Sales Staff is always on the ball making sure that the manufacturer specs and features are precise by examining tools and accessories themselves and not always relying on the information provided to them. The actual carton the Guide Rail comes in correctly reads 55".Just one more reason why you should trust Tools Plus for all of your power tool purchases.
The 194368-5 includes:
- One Makita 194368-5 55" Tracksaw Guide Rail
Two rails can be connected together using the DeWalt DWS5033 or the Festool 482107. For this track it is recommended that you use two.

Makita 55" Tracksaw guide
By Tom, Lake Orion, MI from Lake Orion, MI on February 24, 2012
If you need to rip a full 8', I recommend a second 55" rail and the Dewalt connector bar. The combo works great, and is much easier to store and transport than a 108" rail.
Exact repeat cuts are quicker and more accurate on a table saw using the fence. The track saw requires you to visually align the rail to the cut line for each cut. I am working on a jig to accommodate this.
The Makita track saw makes astonishingly smooth cuts with this guide, producing flawless cuts on 2-sided veneers, as well as solid stock. Dust collection is very close to 100% using a 1 1/2" hose w/vac. I use it over the table saw as much as possible for this reason alone. I highly recommend this product.
Pros:Flawless cuts. Superior grip w/o clamps on everything but melamine.
Cons:The grip strips work so well that it is tricky to maneuver the rail to the cut line. It gets better with practice.
The absence of a fence makes exact repeats tricky.
