Router Guide Rail ID

On last weekends TOH Tommy and Norm were building some cabinets. I don't know the project or episode. Tommy was using a guide rail with a guide for his circular saw to rip the panels, a guide to cut the dados and another to drill the shelf pin holes with a small router. Anyone know the name and mfgr of this guide and attachment system?

Festool is what he uses with a Festool plunge saw and router, not sure about the shelf pin jig.

A simple shelf pin jig can be made from a strip of peg board. Holes are evenly spaced and ready to go. Install a stop collar on your brad point drill bit and you're good to go.
