Now that we know what you are looking for...

From what I have read about Makita tracks is about half are not usable. Most folks recommend going to Festool rails.

I have a 2700 rail which works awesome with my smaller TS55 saw, but now that I have a TS75 I wished I would have gotten a 3000 rail.

Also if you need rail connectors to attach two rails together, TSO is releasing a new product that fits the bill.

The packing on the long rails is lacking. The one I had the last 1was bent. I wanted it for 8í sheet cutting so I took the discount and shortened the rail.

On thing to note if you use the festool rails they donít switch back and forth easy and the slot is a different size.
