What about the Makita 5008MGA? 8 1/4" blade, 10.6 lbs. I've been well satisfied with mine. Easily reaches through 2 by x lumber on an EZ track. Dunno anything about adapting it to a Festool track.

Surface-mounted bridge armature

In the course of working on my floating bridge project, I began using a surface-mounted bridge armature made with two pairs of 3 1/2” blunt tee hinges. It worked out quite well. I’ve begun exploring...

One could have a table built around support on the center line, like an open top trestle table with a beam in the center. The lateral edges could support the ends of the cross pieces.

Or set...

At this point I can't look at something like your table without wondering how it would work with the bridge mounted on a beam. A beam with a track like the one I'm using would offer a structure for...

The setup I had previously used for cutting acute angles was technically a side-mounted bridge of the sort you describe...about the lamest possible implementation, but still. I used two binder clips...

Previous post probably answers your question.

For now, I am content to stick with this setup pretty much as is, with the plank in the jawhorse as a table.

The next issue was stabilizing the relationship of the bridge to the “table,” the plank I am using to carry the material to be cut. On the axis of rotation, I substituted a carriage bolt in the beam...

Once the hinges are squared to the track, they seem to stay put pretty well. I just used a speed square as I tightened down the track connector bolts.

The plywood and 2x4 beam in the proof-of-concept version of the floating bridge wasn’t very flat or square. I decided to replace it with a 4’ long extruded aluminum beam scavenged from a rowing...

I haven't had any experience with stops and the SSRK, but I think I get what you mean about "fidgety".

Necking down a 1/4" bolt had never occurred to me. A good idea to file away, so to speak.

I think an extruded beam for supporting a bridge might be interesting. Some of the alignment issues could be mitigated.

Joe,

That's a very neat and doable solution to a part of the problem that I haven't been concerned with. I've been cutting plastic, where splintering is not an issue, or construction stuff where...

Thanks for reminding me about the sandpaper, Mike. I read that a while back, but it had slipped my mind.

I ended up routing rather than sawing about a 3/64" deep groove with a 3/8" straight cutter...

Not quite right. 1" Deck screws are too thin. I think I have a #10 wood screw in there. Anyway, it's not hard to find something that works.

Hi Burt,

That's what this thing is, more or less. I realize that it can take some time to decode the pictures, and words are even harder.

I don't know if there is agreed upon terminology for...
