Rick, back many years we started with tools like yours and they worked better than cnc's in many cases. So many setups with the simple SSRK ,
tunnel routing and in one case with 5 tools inline..
planers-routers and saws to align an both sides-make 2 grooves and cut
to width parts for ez...Just like your stuff. and Burt's.
I'm sure I can"t even work like that again because the cnc makes you lazy.
No more thinking or creativity. Just pushing numbers and more numbers.

I'm a fan of your work , Burt's and all the ez builders.
No, I'm not trying to take your money...EZ is hangry this time.
Very hungry. but not for your money....

Very nice improvements Dino. Definitely better than me flipping mine over and setting depth with a yoyo. Not good for your pocket book but since I bought the UEG and use it in combo with the square and long rail I no longer needed my EZ-One.

I also dedicated my 6-1/2" Makita 18V cordless saw to the UEG. I like cordless so much I also have both right and left bladed Makita X2 (36V) 7-1/4" circular saws.

Mike

Mike,
Our goal here is to follow the ez Promise even if is not good for the bottom line. I believe that making affordable and better tools ...people will be
safer and at the end things will be better for our bottom and top line.
thanks Mike.

Are you IN?

Default something adjustable - Miters?

Dino,

This may be the wrong place to ask this question as it is a little off of the main subject here of the adjustable UEG.

Previous threads discussed mounting miter guages and making jigs in which to assist the EZ 1 in becoming a contender with miter saws. I have a SCMS Milwaukee that I love, but would also love to part with it as it is a space hog in my garage.

With changes "in the wind" are you guys seriously looking at offering some new options that would allow EZ 1 to compete with a dedicated miter saw? If not I will need to invest in a high quality miter guage and mounting it to some sort of jig. Please help me to avoid all of that and come out with some killer application to put this issue to bed!

thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim.
You can use any gauge and the best is a simple digital caliper.
the ez extrusions are very for any adaptation by the users.
Yes, A simple solution will be offered for the ez-one as well as other special flip-stops and digital remote measuring system.
I like the fact of zeroing the gauge every time you like instead of trying to calibrate the table to all parts and the calipers.

Killer applications are plenty on the miter saws and I'm working for years to find the answer. Yes, I have it know and I hope that we can start offering
some ez solutions to other tool categories.
Tablesaws, mitersaws, routing etc etc.

thanks
dino

Thanks, Dino. Looks like a great update. I've never come around on the original UEG, but I think this upgrade will fix all the squaring issues I had dealt with.

Where do I send all my extrusions for the belated silkscreening?

Hi Jim.
Thanks for the pm.

the answer is yes. I call it Peter's square for over 6 years now but I never made it due to so many other upgrades and changes the ez is going under.
Is not easy to stay loyal to your promise and transform ez to a 100% universal system while you don't force the ez guys to re-invest... allover again.

Is done now, Yesterday we order the dies for aluminum ..12 new dies.
The new universal track will offer an invisible miter gauge.
One that does.t get in the way of the track and is always 100% accurate.

The old tracks can be retrofit very easy. by the ez users or by the ez shop.
Or by attaching a very special Incra-like but not the same square thing on the bottom of their tracks. Self stick or drilled on.

We are waiting for the brackets and few other parts.
I see 2018 as the year of the universal ez...and all uz supporters vindicated
for helping and keeping alive the DWC.

thanks again
d

Any word on the availability of the brackets for the UEG? I've made a couple of changes/improvements(?) and hoping to have the brackets so that I can test the "final" version.

Thanks.

Hi.
we are combining few ez parts and components...
looks like we are set for April. I hope the very first day or week at the latest.

Same time with the ez-Pyramids and our very own knobs to be able
to compete better or at least to keep prices from increases.

The aluminum extrusions are in 22-25 weeks delay...made in USA.
Wondering the effects of the new import taxes and the backlog of the parts
made in USA. We saw increases in few ez parts from US suppliers
due to import duties.. good luck to the small factories...

Dino,

Thanks for the update, looking forward to getting a pair and trying them out. I've got a new project coming up where I'll be breaking down a few sheets of plywood and anxious to see if the changes make any difference.

Tom
