will an FSK guide rail fit the new tsc 55li track saw?

It says that the FSK guide rails that stay attached to the saw won't work with the new TCS 55s?  If this is true is there a rail out there that will?  I bought saw assuming the attachable rail was available...Rick

Welcome to the FOG Rick.  @manrick

The standard rails will work on both saws, the FSK rail only with the HKs. The good news is that the standard rails come in many more lengths. Assuming you live in NA, see - http://www.festoolusa.com/search?q=Guide+rails&catname=Tracks

Note that with the standard rails, both saws are guided by but not attached to the rail.

Alternatively and depending on your needs; if you purchased the TSC within the last 30 days and live in NA, you could return it and purchase an HK.

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

@Untidy Shop nailed it.

The TS 55 is compatible with guide rails of a variety of lengths. However, none of them are attachable like the FSK rails are with the HK saws. That's part of what makes the HK saws unique.
