Improved Alpha® Guide Rail /  Carriage System
Cross-Section of Improved Alpha® Guide Rail /  Carriage System

Alpha® has re-designed and improved the popular Alpha® Guide Rail and Carriage System designed for the AWS-125 stone cutter, which has made the precise cutting application even easier. Now, the new guide rails have a track for the new Carriage System wheels to ride along to ensure a smoother, more precision motion. Due to the new design, the guide rails are now suitable for beveling and polishing, as well as for cutting applications. It is an ideal system for the preparation of seamless countertop installations.

The guide rails come in lengths of 4, 7 and 12 feet. Typically, the 4-foot Guide Rail is the most popular for trimming countertops at the job site. The 7 and 12-foot lengths are designed for slab cutting, bevel grinding, and polishing on the main edges of countertops. Alpha® offers an assortment kit with all three lengths, at a cost savings. 

The 5-inch Guide Rail Carriage Assembly (ASC-5CSM) is designed for the new ESC-125 Wet/Dry Stone Cutter only. This system allows only straight cuts. 

The 6-inch Guide Rail Carriage Assembly (ASC-6CSM) is designed for the PSC-150 Wet Stone Cutter for straight cuts as well as miter cuts. This carriage has three templates included that assist the install of the stone cutter for left side or right side miter cutting and straight cutting.

The Carriage Assembly for Beveling Auxiliary Base (BAB-CASM) is designed for the Beveling Auxiliary Base (BAB1590) for precision grinding, beveling and polishing applications. 

During the use of the Guide Rail System, Alpha® suggests using their Surface Protection Tape (BAB0650) to protect the surface from potential scratches.
