This is the key to the EZ System, THINK! The old ways of woodworking were just more of the same. The EZ System has challenged me to think more about what I am doing and why. Are there easier ways to...

Even though you can get a Moduni base for the worm drive saw (Dino just needs the dimensions of the base) I recommend a sidewinder for use on free rails. On a Power Bench like the EZ-1 the size and...

When making wide rips with the saw on the far side of the rail no handle is needed. I still find a handle makes for better ergonomics but is not a safety issue.

I have 2 vacuums that I use in the shop. One is a Festool CT33. It is quiet enough, not quite as quiet as a Fein but close. One thing I really like about the Festool is that it has variable...

I have not had any problems at max capacity. Now if that was pushed to 48" I suspect there would be a problem. In the future you may want to consider adding a 64" rail and some conectors.
