new way to trim the edges.

Hi guys.
here is a better way to trim the edges without the need of new blades.

Pic #1. Place the saw on the track.
#2. lower the blade to touch the edge and mark the edge.
The edges are designed with ribs to help the trimming with a knife.
We just never liked the idea but time to revisit it
.
#3. You can make a small cut to make sure that your line is perfect.
But you don't even have to do that.
#4. You can use just a knife and trim the edges using the ribs to help you.
#5. Or, you can use a sliding spacer ( made to any size )
and use the spacer to ...

#6. ...align the knife to the line. Slide the spacer and the knife together.
#7and #8. The results are very nice cuts and very fast and very ez and very eurekazone?
#8 and #9. the accuracy is very good. No problems.

easy and perfect every time.
thanks guys.

One quick pass with the side wall of the knife of sandpaper
and we don't have to worry about new blades anymore.

With every order we will include a small piece of edge
and a spacer with the right dado for free.

Thanks to ez we can make thousands in one hour.

Oversized to be trimmed by the customer to final size.
Now we can start thinking about establishing a common line with all tools and all systems.
If we do that we can make other stuff easier and for less.

Ideas welcomed.
This is not the final idea.

this is eurekazone.





enjoy the holidays.

...to trim the edges.

Slide the base to the trim line and use any part of the ssrk ( I use the edge of the base here)
to guide the knife.

This one from Mel.
 
The best one is always hiding.
Mel's idea is so simple that I feel so stupid...

Instead of pulling the saw backwards...
reverse the blade and push as usual.

How stupid...:o

This is how I have always done it. A very experienced machinist at work suggested this. Works great for cutting aluminum too.

Yes Mike.
We all knew the trick but none of us mentioned this before. :confused:

Mel, a new set of edges are in the way.
thanks

There are three very good solutions. Now each of us can choose our own and we're off to the races.

Don't forget the old SRK, upside down would work wonders for this as well.

Randal.
Do you feel the same way I feel after a well known discovery? :o

I think the reverse blade is the best one.
Can't wait to feel even more stupid after I try it...:D
