Hi
I wonder if anyone has used clamps that fit into the base of the tracks on the sliding tracksaw like the ones that fit Festool/ Makita etc? If so which make?

Festool clamps fit perfectly, I use them on my parkside and festool tracks.

Quite frankly I rarely need clamps with my rails. Haven't used mine at all in the last 2-1/2 years - and if you want to gauge my level of Festool usage, the firm has bought me 8 blades in that time, I've matched them and I've sharpened blades 12 times.....

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

It's nice to have them, but as you can see above they are not always needed. If most of your work is cutting sheet goods then it's unlikely you will need on anything but the longest of cuts. I like mine for trimming doors and items that are hard to support flat, the track can slip in these cases so the clamps help. Considering they only cost about £15 for a pair, I am glad to have them to hand when needed.
