I love those old films. The voices of announcers back then was so unique - must have been taught or learned from others.

When you say this (above) did you mean the friction between the base and the top of the plywood was sufficient to push move the plywood? (I suspect this is what happened)...

Is there a way to adjust the squareness of your setup, if needed?

It appears that you can't run the saw along the area adjacent to the square, otherwise you'd cut off the square's fence material. ...

You just move the the EZ-ONE's non-fence sliding rail(s) to support the square and/or material being cut, as needed.

If you don't want the EZ-ONE's open top, you can place 3/4" thick panels...
