Many of us have been asking for this for years. Glad to hear it.

I have been watching Craigslist for a Festool track and saw for this feature alone

I for one would like to see how it is accomplished. The solution I came up with years ago wasn't accepted, I assume because it was a bit complex to manufacture. Although I do think someone here on the forum built one very similar to my design.

Hi Dik.
I hope you don't have the flu,

the smart base.
we need so many features in one base and your idea must be combined with few more the same time. like:

universal to all saws.
left and right bladed.
small -medium and large.
with antichip and fin.
to work in all tracks. the green. the blue and the yellow.
To work in the ez tracks. old and new one's
to install without screwing around.
to align the blade to the track.
to have the same cut line even with all kerf blades.
to work with the UEG and the future inventions. adaptations.
to allow for removal and use the same base for other saws..with some limitations here.
renewable AC-3 and with full removable stabilizer.

if is anything else we need...we can ask here.
some of the parts are already done ...waiting only for two.
the uni-sawbase...will be available in 3-months from now.
not included with the tracksaw systems.
it will be sold as a component.
We already fixed the site to order systems without base because
someone may end-up with 3-4 bases....

thanks Dik...the goal is to combine all the above now.
you can finish some details if you have time.
I'm sure we may have to modify the uni-base few times.

Dik,
I will send you an e-mail...
if we can incorporate all features..best for all.
keep in mind that your design was for OEM.
we're going 100% universal now.

I finally found what I had done in 2012. It is in fact the base for the EZ Saw. Not sure it could be converted to a universal saw base without even more loss of depth of cut.

No for the unibase but a good idea to be modified for the uni-base.
Instead if we find the right saw where we can remove the base and use yours.

that will bring few issues with the manufacturer and insurance even if your design is safer.
look at your e-mail and call me if you like

Chris,
the marketing feature of the same cut line is just that.
how you can have the same cut line with different saw kerfs?
I believe that Festool is now using same kerf blades.
be ready to invest in few $60+ and to replace the strips
( glide-antiskid-edges) every few months if not weeks with heavy use
at the price of the track.

why we have to but 16" glide strios and not buying only 3 feet that you can apply at the bottom of your saw. same function with great savings,

the molds for the uni-base and tracks are finally in order.
I suggest to wait and get the best and latest.

tx

Dino,

If you're talking about eliminating the ACE and putting the complete anti-chip function on the bottom of the saw base as some forum posters have done, why not use the same concept as K*** and have a strip underneath the track, and perpendicular to the track, that touches the edge of the plywood, trimmed with the saw and used to show the cut line? Mark the edge of the plywood with a pencil to show the cut line, move the track until the end of the "pointer" is aligned with the mark and make your cut - this could be a moulded housing attached to the bottom of the track with an adjustable, replaceable pointer.

Actually, since the cut line is on the motor side of the blade and the blade is fastened against the flange, the edge of the cut doesn't change in relation to the desired cut line. Except for different overhangs of the carbide tips, there should be no deviation from the cut line.
