Default UEG Extra Flat Washers

I have 4 small flat washers in the bag of parts I received for my UEG. Do I place them under the heads of the four short screws, between the track and star nuts or not used at all?

You can put them either between the arms and the fence or between the screw head and the arm. I have mine between the arm and the fence as it allows the base to slide over the fence a little easier for those really narrow cuts. Hope the drawings help.

whitejacket,

BIG thanks for reply and the excellent drawing

I like your explanation of where you positioned your washers but I didn't use them. I was afraid there would not be enough contact pressure utilizing the small washers at the intersection and causing the square to become un-square.

Do you work for eurekazone?

You are welcome. No, I am not a Eurekazone employee but I have done work for Eurekazone on the product instructions.

Findings/Update with my little experience with UEG.

As mentioned early in the post I didn't use the 4 small extra washers in the kit. Well as many have mention//comment I believe Eurakazone needs a little improvement about the Instructions & Non Parts/Material List, the 4 washers our needed. My first cut I wanted to trim the tong off a peace of 3/4 plywood. Wasn't going to happen without the washers, spaced as whitejacket mention, the smart base would not slide over far enough because it would hit the fence/edge guide. My other initial thought was gee the marks on the smart base don't even come close to the ruler on the side of the rails. Upon further inspection I realized that the alignment/cut mark is hidden under the knobs. AGAIN Better instructions our needed/WAIT A MINUTE Eurakazone has recently undated/revised the printed instructions . But they still don't mentioned/reference the 4 small extra washer which our needed for UEG for narrow cuts. Without the washers the smallest cut is 1 inch because the Smart Base hits the guide/edge rail. I opted out of the 4 small washers and made my own spacers since I didn't like the profile between the edge & rails where the washers would rest.

Now I just need to practice a little more on my rips. I watch Dino video where his co-worker is cutting the plastic, but I seemed to have a fish tail/serve at the end of the cut.

Do people use this tool successfully to size the plywood for cabinets or just to breakdown & re-cut/size/square on the Power benches?

I can only speak for myself. I use the UEG for final cuts.

Yep, washers are needed. You mention the rule does not match, did your's come with the rule? From EZ?

I had to add my own and I added my own reference mark on the base to correspond with different width blades.

My came with the ruler, but without the updated instructions I missed the cut mark on the UEG Base, almost hidden. Looks like something is happen to Eurekazone printed Instructions right now
