    @svensshutters it was from the UK. LawsonHIS.

    I just got a 78$ bill from DHL so I am just under $600 for all three. NOT cheap but I have what I want. If I didn’t need/want the holy rail I would have bought the Mafell bag and rails.

    I can tell you that even for just in the shop, the bag is super nice to store rails. I have 3×1600, 2×800, 1×1100 and all my end caps and connectors in it (it’s heavy) but nice to have everything stored away. Having the two 1600 is nice as well. A lot stiffer then connecting the two 800 and the 1100.

    My plan is to use the following configurations that should cover me for breaking down any sheet goods and cabinet build without detaching any rails.

    1600×2
    1600 + 800 holy rails
    1100
    800

    That is a sweet set up @ thedude306. Did you buy extra connectors for each rail too?

    Yeah, I really love my TS55REQ. It’s honestly my favorite tool. I’d love to give that Mafell a whirl though! As far as the jig saws I have heard the same thing, Mafell is better but I really really really like my Carvex. I did buy the accessory kit for it and that makes the tool so much better.

    The jigsaw is worth every penny. I did some video on the cut quality. Nothing compares. The only reason why I keep the Carvex around is for the circle cutter. The P1cc was my first Mafell and it is represents perfection in engineering in my opinion.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Pretty cool Brad, thanks for the information.

    That’s very cool! I have yet to get the 118″ rail. No body stocks it here and am afraid to have it shipped??

    Yup, I’ve got a couple extra connectors. I need two more to attach everything together. I’ll pick up those on my next order from mafell. I need a couple stops as well.

    You know every time you mention the perfection of the P1cc a little part of me dies inside…

    Haha…somehow I think a P1CC is going to find its way into your shop at some point in the future.

    You should take a pic of all your rails connected end-to-end – you could cut the length of a bar or something.

    You guys and your damn Mafell…lol! I did have a brain fart after reading through this thread and realized instead of keeping my homemade rail connectors in my track case I could store them in my tracks too.

    It also helps keep the end of the cord from getting sucked into the groove on Festool’s track.

    Exactly…it’s a Homer Simpson “Doh” moment. The other plus for me is the allen screws don’t get lost now that I snug the connector up in the rail.

    That is a great idea! I’ll have to try that later with my rails and it would be one less thing in my tracksaw l-boxx.
