Hi guys.
From time to time I wonder if any ez tool is going to be the clear winner.
My favor tool is the Ripsizer now.
Why?
No lifting of heavy panels and no need to use another favor ez tool
that is the smart table.
The kit that converts the ez-one to smart table kit is a space saver.
fop me, the smart table kit is out of the list because we use it only for packaging ( taping boxes ) and other stuff.

the ez-one is another favor tool that we just cant work without.
I remove the ez-one for only a day ( for a demo) from the shop and
the guys got very-very upset. When I come back to the shop, first thing was to put the ez-one back again...I like to put the ez-one in top of the list but
the Ripsizer removes parts from panels without even lifting the panel.
the heavy panes are stored vertically ( to save space )
and the ripsizer cuts strips to size in few sec's...

To me, the Ripsizer is the top ez tool
until the smart clamps get upset. :rolleyes:
The smart clamps is the only ez tool that stayed as is and original...
why fix it? dont ask me. if the clamps like to show off...why not?

What is your favor ez tool and why?

Thanks and if we get over 100 votes...
we may even see a video of the "upset" smart clamps.:rolleyes::D

Dino I like the ripsizer my portable pbb and my smart table but with a guide rail and smart clamps I can do anything I need to so that is the last tool I would give up. The others make money but none would do the job of all except the guide rail. Number 2 on my list is the ssrk it is the next tool that i wouldn't want to be without. The ssrk just opens a whole world of options just like the track. ez is such a modular system I really wouldn't want to part with any of it! Funny all four chose a different tool.

For you, I can see the tracksaw as #1.
For me. ripsizer itez.;) the one that solves the biggest problem.

the poll is multiple choice. you can vote for more than one tool.

Dino,

This one is loaded. To be honest, it is the tool that I am using today.

I decided to go back to my early days with EZ. Dino called me one day and told me that he was working on a square. In a couple hours, Dale and I had made a square and were having a ball cutting plywood. That sold me on the EZ system.

So hard to pick a favorite so I chose 3
1) My power bench -- the bridge is the clincher as there is nothing like it anywhere. (I will likely soon be substituting the EZ-One for this as it will become my workhorse)
2) The RipSizer -- recent use on solid oak shot this up the list
3) Smart Table -- able to breakdown my material in one area and slide the pieces on to my power bench. To me the Smart Table is indispensable and will always be separate from my power bench (works best for me that way)

I've tried to choose just one, and I can't. My two equal favorites are the rail and Smart table (basis of the whole system).

17 votes so far...50 and we get to see the big (clamps) comeback.;)
nothing like the ez clamps and not designed to replace them...
at $70.00 per clamp they better do something special.

Like...one touch/toggle/smart clamping syste/smarter table
in one small package.

the installers ez dream kit.

For now, track/connectors in a dead heat w/ the Smart Table.

Dino,

Without the rails, there wouldn't be anything else really helpful, so that is my #1. However, if you took that out, I'd have to say my home-made PBB with B-300 is my favorite and most frequently used way to use my rails.

Roy,
We can use the smart table with other tracks ( not ez)
But you're right.

I see a BIG cabinetmaker comeback.;)
We may even include the ez twin toggle to give him a boost.;)

Noe that the ripsizer is just about perfect, I test it again just to make sure...
time to fix the cabinetmaker and offer a nice compact and portable system

stk/ripsizer/cabinetmaker
the ez trio to go.

Dino in this tread and others you reference/quote about the Ripsizer, This is why your tool naming convention adds a lot of confusion. I hate to assume you and others our talking about the UEG and not the predecessor Ripsizer. You replaced the Ripsizer with the UEG and I'm sorry I didn't purchased the Ripsizer when you were clearing them out versus the UEG.
