TS55 guide rail and mf3 flip up dock
« on: October 09, 2019, 09:20 AM »
Howdy folks,

I've been using the mf3/guide rail for repetitive cuts and taking the ts55 of the guide rail to swap out pieces is getting old (i'm also lazy...).

Has anyone come across a device that keeps the ts55 on the guide rail end when it's flipped? I recall seeing a picture of someone who built a dock at the guide rail end to house the ts at 90 degrees when the rail is flipped up.

I know it's a minor thing to take the ts55 of the track, but I like keeping my lifting motion to a minimum if I can.

Thanks,
Neeraj

This is not the thread I was thinking about, but did a search on TS55 Garage and came up with this...
