today i ordered the woodriver guide rail system from woodcraft. i actually ordered the pieces individually as they are on sale and saved about $10. also got the miter angle jig to go with it

heres the system

it appears to be fairly new and i havent seen much about it so im kind of taking a chance on it but it looks like just what i need for an upcoming project where ill be needing to cut a bunch of sheet goods

has anyone used this system?

Should be fine if you’re not in a hurry. The more costly systems like
Festool put the edge of the guiderail right on the cut line, so setting
up the cut is faster. With guides like the Woodriver you have to do
some math to set the guide to compensate for the offset of the
cutline from the edge guide. Some simple self-made plywood layout
jigs can make the process of measuring, marking, clamping and cutting
go a bit faster.

Yes I have this system. I use it in combination with my Festool TS55 (track saw) so I can make a perpendicular cut on sheet goods. I like it a lot.
