The Festool Splinter Guard FS-SP is adhesive-backed to maintain a splinter-free cut quality. Splinter guard material is semi-transparent for better visibility of the cut line and is quick and easy to replace.
Replace your splinter guard as needed to ensure perfect alignment of your guide rail to the cut line and to protect against tear out. Though you should expect many cuts from your original splinter guard, its life expectancy is heavily dependent on your application. Keep your cuts perfectly splinter-free by periodically replacing your splinter guard, especially if you are switching between blades or using the guide rail with more than one saw.
