Default EZ One Cross Rail Extension Users

Working on a "wish list" since Christmas will be here before I know it ...

I'm wondering if there are any EZ-One Cross Rail Extension users out there.

If yes, can you share your thoughts about using them? What situations do you find them useful for?

Hi Ken
I use it for repeat crosscuts when the length of the cut exceeds the length of the regular extrusions. It allows me to use a stop instead of cutting to a line. Works great for me. I never made the legs. I just use a support of the appropriate height. After using it I have left it in place, probably out of laziness, and I've found the additional table width, jutting out as it does, very useful for a number of things. I remember some kreg joinery and some assembly. But sooner or later I take it down to recover the floor space. I only use it occasionally, but I'm glad to have it.

Ken,
The open top with the sliding cross rails allows you to transform the top for the project at hand.
#1. if you need to cross cut and cut to size parts that are 24" in width.
and 36" to 42" long. ( a typical . custom cabinet job)
Now you align the extensions to become the fence and use a stop of few stops
for multiple/ different lengths.
One setup for the entire job.

I stay with #1 for now.
You can do without them but in the newer ez-1 design we will put the bridge at the edge. This way you never have to cut into aluminum and you have
the sliding cross rails to use your stops.

We will redo the design and use SME's to lower the cost.
With adjustable height legs ( not 2x4s as shown before)
I hope to have the new site up today. Clean and easy to navigate with better layout and descriptions.

thanks
dino

Dino,

Sliding rail extension kit with adjustable legs? great idea. I have the current double rail extension kit, have not had the opportunity to use it yet, but that day is coming soon. Will the new adjustable legs be compatible with the current rail extension kit (SSME)? The adjustable legs makes more sense to me as I will be using my ez one outside occasionally and sometimes it might be sitting in an area that is not exactly flat or even.

Also, I have the folding leg version of the ez one. I see that the folding leg model is no longer on the site. Are you guys moving away from that design or will folding legs be incorporated into the new ez one as standard equipment?

thanks
Jim

Hi Dino,

Can we talk about this some more? I have a fun time reading about tool improvement ideas (even if i don't get to use the tools often).

Bridge at the edge so you don't cut into the SSME seems like a good idea, but what stops the cut-off piece from falling to the floor? Additional extension to the sliding SSME?


I always wondered why use SSME for the frame instead of drilling a hole through SME and using a conventional braced L bracket. I assume this is what you'll do now? Maybe something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...GPXJ9QQ8&psc=1

Thanks,
Chris

I'm also anxious to see and discuss the new version of the EZ1.2, or whatever it will be called.

I hope it has folding legs.
