I think though that the set-up is workable as is - the t-bolts clamp it nice and tight, plus there is a second contact at the top of the extrusion that's going to keep it from rocking. Want to start playing with it but need to finish up what I've got started as I don't have enough room for all the projects I have started now.
Love it when things work out, Tom.

Looks like one easy way out might be to a) replace the horiz. piece on the EZ bridge that holds the arms with a new piece of HDPE to extend across the Festool extrusion; b) add a "V" on the bottom of that new HDPE to ride in the top of the extrusion; c) drop the bridge to let that new HDPE ride on the top of the extrusion.

Seems that might help with rigidity as well as easy on/off and sliding.
