The LR 32 system is a great way for making easy shelf pin holes and it's something we use often in our shop. I wanted to design a system that allowed for a lower entry cost into the use of the LR 32 system while still giving the same accuracy by using the guide rail rods that come with the Festool routers.

The Toolcurve LR 32 guide rail adapter allows you to make repeatable accurate shelf pin holes with our spring loaded plunger. The guide rail adapter also can be used on a normal Festool rail as a guide rail adapter to make dados in your work piece by removing the plunger.

Does this work with an OF1010 router, or are you planning a version that does?

I don't have the OF1010 only the OF1400 so I am
guessing the difference is the spacing of the rods.

Is that correct?

considered doing something like this with the domino connector to get evenly spaced dominos?

This is correct, they are different heights too, this is why the 1010 has its own rail adapter vs the micro adjustment version of the 1400 version.

I have a Bosch 1617 router. I also have a TS75 coming in the mail and havent ordered any guide rails yet.

Will your Bosh 1617 router adapter work on a makita track?

Will the LR 32 guide rail mount to a bosch 1617 and work on makita track?

Sorry, I might be asking odd/niche questions. I don't have any guide rails for my TS75 yet and the 118" makita track is priced really well. I think getting holes drilled into it like a holey festool rail wouldn't be hard or cost much.

Just buy the holed rail. What is the price difference? What is your time worth or the cost of having a cnc shop do it. It will end up being too expensive. Just saying.

Great idea of course I see it a couple of days after buying a used LR-32, the purchase of which I have been procrastinating at leas 4 years!

I have a router rail adapter I'm working on which will be released to work with non Festool brand routers like the 1617 and I'm designing it to be able to use the LR32 system if needed so you'll be able to use pretty much any plunge router with the Festool LR32 rails.

I would seriously advise against that...the holes will need to be punched or milled into the rail. Once the drill bit breaks through the aluminum rail one or both of the drill flutes will grab the material and bend it upwards. That's the reason Unibits (step drills) were invented. I'd just purchase the holey rail.

Updated the post with a link to our new adapter for the Bosch 1617 plunge router. You can now use your 1617 with the LR32 rail.
