Miter Guide for Makita Plunge-Cut Track Saw
This simple miter guide is used to cut angled panels with your Makita Guide Rail (#58596, sold separately) and your Makita Track Saw (#53605, sold separately). First, set the angle using the integral protractor scale. One of the arms then goes into the channel of the Guide Rail and the other arm acts as a fence to line up the Guide Rail at the correct angle.
Two main reasons I bought this
A. As a 90 reference for almost daily use.
B. To copy angle cuts to the saw.
A. It doesn't attach to the track in any way I could see, just stuffs into the T track on top which was inaccurate at best, and definitely inconsistent as far as repeat-ability goes. The numbers dont lock at any point so there is no click at common degrees.
B. This thing is so darn big its very impracticable. Most angles were smaller. thats just half the issue, the main issue is the angle they cut in the movable part, it doesn't finish to the end so it leaves a lot of guess work and can only be used with larger pieces of wood, nothing less than 9".
Good idea, terrible application.
