They are pretty close to me. But the shipment of the track is coming from the manufacturer. Who the hell knows, might come directly from China.

If it's manufactured by Makita it could be coming from Buford Ga. Is where they do their US manufacturing. I think it's their distribution hub as well.
I'd like to know when you get it if it's straight and where it came from.

Do small slivers of wood clog it up I put about 5,000 feet of lumber through one and it kept getting clogged.

The only time we've had a problem is when running a smaller blade, then it has clogged up a couple times.

Looked at my post and that could be seen as a misprint of Burlington "City".

I'm "County".
Right where Burlington, Ocean, and Monmouth all meet.

Watch the delivery guys.
I once ordered at long piece (8') of body moulding for one of my cars and they folded it in half somewhere in its travel to fit better in whatever vehicle it was in

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


118" Makita track came in. Delivered by FedEx freight. Came in a MDF box, 5/16" MDF top and bottom with 3/4" plywood separating them. Box had some damage but nothing to the track.



The saw fits the track but it's loose. The Festool guide is 16.0mm wide while the Makita is 15.7mm wide. I put two layers of 3M 401+ tape on it and now it reads 15.95mm so it's all good. Not sure if the tape will last, but I'm gonna give it a shot. And the tape is close to Festool green

Leo, aluminum duct tape might hold up really well. It might be too thick though.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I have some of that kicking around. But it's 3" wide and expensive. If I could find some of that in a 3/4" or less that would be the ticket as long as it didn't' exceed the thickness.

Good call!

You could just adjust the gibs on the saw.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Yes, but all I want to do is pick up the saw and place it on the track. It's adjusted for my Festool track. I may just by another Makita 55" and put the Festool in storage so I can swap between tracks without the need for the tape.
