Parallel Guides or Rail Square? [Video 473][**Gifted/Ad]


In this video I look at the pros and cons of a #Benchdogs #RailSquare and a set of #ParallelGuides as the tracksaw accessory of choice. Parallel guides for rips, and Rail Square for crosscuts? Well, yes, but there’s a bit more to it than that… Enjoy!
