Bora, a product division of Affinity Tool Works, introduces its updated
Wide Track Clamp Edge series of straight edge guides. Featuring solid
construction and a wider base, the Wide Track is sturdier than a typical
straight edge guide, allowing for clean, precise cuts. Five models are
available to offer a solution for an array of applications including
do-it-yourself projects, woodworking, carpentry, general construction,
and remodeling.

The Wide Track is available in five lengths including 24-inch, 42-inch,
66-inch, 100-inch, and the most recent addition, the 50-inch model. The
new 50-inch model is suitable for cross-cutting sheets of plywood or
sheet goods 48 inches in length, with two additional inches remaining to
allow for angled cuts. The smallest clamp of the five, the 24-inch, is
most commonly used as an auxiliary fence on band saws, router tables or
drill presses, and as a guide for small cutting projects. The 42-inch
clamp can be used as a straight edge to assist in cutting doors and
pre-made countertops, and also provides extra stability on small- to
medium-size cutting projects. For more specialized projects, the 66-inch
is ideal for cutting European-size plywood sheets and 60-inch fiber
cement board. The largest of the Wide Track Clamp Edges, the 100-inch,
is perfect for the largest projects, including ripping plywood or sheet
goods up to eight feet in length.

In addition to cutting-type tasks, the Wide Track can be utilized for
other applications, such as a vise or bar clamp for gluing. Thanks to
its integrated T-tracks, the Wide Track can also double as a portable
T-track. The integrated T-track feature is compatible with special
T-track jigs and accessories. Not only does this increase the
versatility of the Wide Track, it also eliminates the need for an
additional T-track.

The Wide Track line features a heavy-duty design, making it resilient to
workplace wear. An extra wide, 3-3/8 inch aircraft-grade extruded
aluminum body allows for rigid clamping, and the large, oversized handle
creates increased clamping pressure when making straight and angled
cuts. The soft-grip, rubberized clamping foot allows for angled clamping
and ensures the material is held firmly in place, without damaging the
work. Each clamp edge comes with an integrated hanging loop to provide
convenient storage.
