Looking like an overgrown keyhole cutter, you can use this cutter to cut a T-slot in a workbench or an assembly table. Once cut the T-slot enables you to use Axminster or Festool guide rail clamps as hold downs when working on a piece or gluing up. Alternatively a length of hardwood with a T-slot cut along its length can become a custom made or temporary guide rail. Alternatively, you can cut a T-Slot in nylon if making jigs to your own design. We suggest you remove the bulk of the waste with a straight cutter of the same diameter as the neck of the cutter (dimension E) prior to using the T-slot cutter.

Made my workshop much more versatileI bought this to make some clamp tracks for my permanent Kapex bench and have ended up making clamp tracks all over my (birchply) MFT workbench too. So easy and versatile. It has completely changed and sped up the way I work. Can't recommend this enough for using with rail clamps.
