Bora Wide Track Clamp Edge

Featuring solid construction and a wider base, the Wide Track is sturdier than a typical straight edge guide, allowing for clean, precise cuts.

BORA®, a product division of Affinity Tool Works, introduces its updated Wide Track Clamp EdgeÔ 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 perfect 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.
