Why not use an Incra gauge?

https://www.incrementaltools.com/INCRA_Gauge_p/ig32.htm

Range up to 7", 1/32" increments and plastic, not steel, so it won't damage carbide tools.

Something to bear in mind is that the fence located on the far side of the table - the same layout as a radial arm saw - acts as a stop for the force of the saw blade pushing the part in that...

My reason for the t-tracks parallel to the EZ track was that I could put the fence pretty much anywhere between the front of the table and the back, based on the width of the part I was cutting, so I...

I would be tempted to just tack a 1x6 to the wall, offset from the cutline as needed, and make the cut with the saw base against the upper edge of the 1x. The screws would be in the waste portion. I...

Without knowing your set-up, but anything that gives you a point of reference will work. A word of caution - it's easy to make the parts so that the saw kerf telegraphs to the front (convex) face,...

Spacing is not super critical (although 1-7/8" seems a little high). Make a spacer with width equal to the distance BETWEEN the kerfs. Start with the wood under the track, projection equal to the...

Why does the fence have to go under the track? If you're using the set-up primarily for cross-cutting, you really only need the fence to the left of the track. If the fence went under the track - ala...
