I probably wont end up using this very much. I have the Makita track saw and both tracks. I find it is easier to use a 12" speed square to get 90 degree cuts. I might use it for angled cuts, but those are rare for me.
Revising this review. There is a plastic rail at sit in a channel on the Makita track. On my guide the rail refused to fit in the track at all. I took the rail off and turned it upside down and now it works much better. I'm still clamping a framing square to my panel to check for square, but the guide is much more functional now that I have fixed the plastic piece.
I've been very satisfied with my Makita track saw but wanted an easy-fast way to get guaranteed square cuts or the occasional angle without tedious measuring and marking. So i was delighted when I received this. It fits the Makita track securely and it is very well made. The locking screw is solid and hold the guide firmly. But then I discovered there are no detents for common angles like 90, 45 or 22.5.
The markings are clear and easy to read, but without precise and secure detents they cannot possibly provide great accuracy over the 55 inch length of the track. So that means, you have to adjust this angle guide for every series of cuts. Luckily, that is not difficult or time consuming.
I use a LARGE plastic drafting square for angles like 45, 30 or 60 degrees. For 90 degree angles, use us a reliable steel framing square. That's plenty accurate enough, but I still find myself double-checking critical cuts through measurement.
