I used a mason string and a 48 inch level to do my best to check both edges of three 50 inch tracks, one 64 inch track, and one 72 inch track - all with the anti-chip edges slide out, and I see no...

It is similar to how the EZ Smart tracks are shipped. Looks slick.

I agree 100% about the value of the Smart Table. It needs to come back with an option to buy banquet table legs via Eurekazone. I suspect the pyramids are perceived as an alternative solution, but I...

An important characteristic to consider when purchasing a circular saw for use on the EZ Smart Base and Guide Rail is the depth of cut.

Thanks for measuring your Makita 5007MGA kerf. Bosch lists the 6-1/2" blade's kerf as 0.063", which is in line with your measurements. Trust me, my measurements will NOT be within 1/100"!! :-)

Oh yeah, I guess that makes sense since the SmartBase is aligned with the rail side of the blade.

I guess only the base insert is really impacted by a different blade - if the kerf width is...

I looked online to find the kerf width of the Makita blade but they don't publish it. In the Bosch blades they list both 7-1/4" and 6-1/4" blades as having the same kerf width, so I'm hopeful. I'll...

I now have two EZ Ready saws for guide rail use (a third is dedicated to my UEG): a 7-1/4" blade Makita 5007MGA corded saw, and a 6-1/4" blade Bosch CCS180 18V cordless saw.

I've long like the concept of the Spartan shown in the first video. I actually purchased a pre-owned Bridge with the thought of making a long narrow bench to rip dimensional lumber.

I've only used the Hitachi C7BMR and the Makita 5007MGA, so I can't speak to the other saws you mention. I also acquired a pre-owned EZ-ready cordless 18V Bosch saw, but have not used it yet.

Todd,
Where and how exactly did you put a screw through the guide rail? It seems that a screw head on the surface would interfere with the base as it glides.

Do you drill a small hole for the...

Silence! Are You Folks Still Using Your EZ Gear??

OK, the silence in this forum is deafening!!

Are you still using your EZ Tracks and related gear in silence?

Did people give up and move on to buying IKEA furniture instead?
