Thanks to feedback from the TSO user community, the GRS-16 now embodies a number of requested features and refinements:
Before the GRS-16 family, accessories for squaring up your track saw guide rail relied on the loose-tolerance T-slot found on just about every guide rail. To overcome this inherent inaccuracy, you had to rely on a separate reference square, plus a combination of loose parts like T-bars, hex bolts, knobs or wingnuts. No longer! The patented GRS-16 is completely self-contained and self-aligning, thanks to an innovative, high strength integral draw latch mechanism. Simply slide the GRS-16 or GRS-16 PE onto your guide rail, lock the draw latch, and you're done. Five seconds to square.
Once secured to your guide rail, squareness can be quickly verified by observing the zero-clearance attachment between the square and guide rail. Despite its high clamping strength, your guide rail is completely supported by the straight-edge of the GRS-16, eliminating any potential for track deformation over time. An ergonomic handle makes it easy to lift and reposition the square along your length of track, and machined chamfers improve comfort and handling. Both the GRS-16 and GRS-16 PE are made in the United States, and come with our unconditional lifetime warranty. Engineered for maximum accuracy and ease of use, the GRS-16 and GRS-16 PE are precision CNC machined from a single piece of 6061-T6 aluminum and then anodized for a non-marring, high durability finish. The high-strength draw latch is built from stainless steel—to resist rust and pitting over time. Despite its high clamping strength, a comfort coating on the latch handle makes it easy to generate the leverage necessary to engage, release or reposition the square along your length of track. Both the GRS-16 and GRS-16 PE are made in the United States, and come with our lifetime warranty.
If you want the absolute smallest and lightest form factor and anticipate using the square for conventional cuts referencing the front edge of your workpiece, choose the GRS-16. If you need the ability to reference off the front and back edge of your workpiece, select the GRS-16 PE. Can't decide? Check out the Combination Set for the best of both worlds:
