Woody,

Take a look at post #2 by Andy here. I would suggest more reading of old posts before asking questions. When I first got interested in EZ, I read the entire forum before even beginning to get serious about buying, and I wasn't retired at the time...

Well, just a thought .

Well, first time I see a post by you with some ez spirit....
How many times you have to rip more than 50"?
not many.

find the easiest way. learn how to use the UEG or the guide rails.
a simple stop in front of the wood makes the ueg to cut just about anything.

the only other task that we need for solid wood is SLR cuts.
to put a straight edge in the board...
well...guide rails can do that.
OR...find another way.
A simple straight piece of wood 1"x2" that you can actually screw into a piece of ply-strip makes a perfect edge guide that you can use the ueg...
look at the ueg instructions.

A.UEG
B. look at the instructions that can actually tell you how to do more
with less tools...( no other company is doing that)
C. make your own tools using any ez-extrusion.


last week we had few close calls in the factory with a miter saw.
I was lucky and I put this thing in the side to use it only for parts...
30 minutes later we had a nice cross cutter using some scraps
(ez extrusions) and later we double checked the accuracy with a cnc.
well...it was perfect eliminating secondary steps in many other operations.

Default Ripping and trippin

I too am interested in long rips. In my retired life, I plan to make a cedar strip canoe. That's a whole bunch or 1/4" x 3/4" x 16' plus length cedar strips.

EZ has a few products that can safely and accurately make those rips:
1. The tool track w/ extensions (all day long)
2. UEG
3. Ripsizer ( please see my classified ad for a heck of a deal)
4. SRK with jig saw or compact circular saw
5. SSRK " "
6. Custom length bridge.
I'm sure I missed one or two.

So, the biggest problem is not whether to use a finger-eating-tablesaw but, rather which EZ method is the most productive? It's a whole 'nother discussion that will sound like quibbling.....and it is.

The UEG is ideal for cutting long narrow strips. I used mine just yesterday to cut my own edge banding for a cabinet I am making. I just used a few dabs of hot glue to tack the board I was cutting to a larger board so it wouldn't move around and started cutting. It was ez. If I can ever get my hands on the elusive fin I keep hearing about It would probably do an even better job.

Charlie, I came to the same conclusion about the UEG. It's also perfect for cutting stiles.

Guess I got distracted feeding the troll. Sorry to all.

Charlie. we started shipping Fins Friday.
You get yours soon.

with the fin there is much better. like twin guidance system.
but as you saw the ueg works even without the fin.
the ez-fin is a lifesaver.

Good to hear how is this done by name or order number big job.
Just poking fun when ever I get one is fine. I'm still not sure what saw
to use on the UEG. I want to switch to that base anyway so I can use on and off the track. Guess its best to use the one I like the most!.

that deserves an ez price....
why I don't think about that before?/?///

the most complex tasks usually solved by a eureka moment.
I used packing tape before...this is what I always have at hand.
