Tw218,

That certainly is a nice looking bench. Uses a lot of extrusions, mine was planned to have two short pieces of SME, centered where the bridge would be, and bolted to the 2x apron. Mine...

Rick,

Yes, something just like that. Thinking about a piece of aluminum to sit against the face, with a tab in the back that would sit on top of the extrusion at "B". Shamelessly stealing an idea...

Rick,

As always, well thought out and nicely engineered. From reading the posts, it seems that I'm overcomplicating my project (as always). Not needing vertical adjustment - other than if I'm...

Thanks Dino.

At this point, I'm breaking down the plywood using the UEG, sometimes crosscutting with the Cabinet Square but mostly on an MFT top with a fence and bench dogs. I'm now looking at...

Not quite understanding this, unless there was an older model that just went up and down - but I understand that the existing bridge (B300?) adjusts, within limits, for different thicknesses due to...

That sounds good. I'd looked at the EZ1 a while back and passed on it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it didn't seem to be slanted to the way that I would use it close to 100% of the time. I first...

Similar to what I'm doing. With little work, the B-300 can be adapted to this set-up by using dogs on the Y-Y axis to square the track to the X-X axis. Mount the brackets using the SME extrusion on...

Dino,

If you're talking about eliminating the ACE and putting the complete anti-chip function on the bottom of the saw base as some forum posters have done, why not use the same concept as K***...

Thanks Dino.

I had the idea of making the fixture as a molded plastic part, should be an easy (and cheap) mold to make, and supply one with each base. This would allow you to eliminate the...

Flip stops would be a good idea, and easy to do using short sections of connector extrusion. In my case, I'd wind up taking them off when I break down the Cabinet Square. I'd looked at the idea of...

It's been a while, but I believe that they charged me $25 for the milling charge plus the cost of the 4' of extrusion. I made the stop block and use that for cutting multiples rather than the...

Consider, making the Cabinet Maker a permanent assembly has it's pluses and minuses. On the plus side, it's always square - assuming that it doesn't get bumped or dropped enough to knock it out of...

The straight up-down idea has merit, but I can see difficulties in raising the track between cuts - and of course the saw would have to be removed. One idea might still be to have a pivot - at the...

The track being square at one material thickness and not at another would seem to indicate that the bracket(s) are not perpendicular to the work top.

Ken,

The SME extrusion is 3/4" high, and the connector extrusion is about 11/32" so there should be enough room underneath the connector for a pan head screw.

Yes it will, but be sure to wear protective eyewear - a full-face shield is best- as the brush can shed wires and they can wind up in your eyes.
