I have only made a t18 so far so many things going on
hope to get another one done soon or this winter.

I use more PL then I need to also and find it's not
that hard to work with just plug the tip after each use.
When you have good wood and cut just right these
speakers go together very nice I must say.

Thanks for the pic.

As others already noted, there are no set bevels. Just yesterday I need a 6,12 and 17 degree cut - and that was on just 3 panels.

Extremely easy to do on a table saw - very hard to do EZ.

Regardless I love the EZ table and have high hopes for the new saw.

i just put the last panel on and sealed it all up. the wood was warped more than i expected!

unless my over use of PL caused the braces to expand 1/8" or more on each side?

i didn't want to nail this thing in place, so i'm glad i bought a bunch of $12 bar clamps from home depot the other day!

I did mine a litle slower I guess putting the braces then let them dry before I adding the next piece. With the braces you can get away with one side glued but for vibration I did both.

What makes things even better is I used tibond for them not PL.

I would not say its hard to do on an EZ-1 for multi cuts of the same
but its the change over that could take to mutch time or more so theen
a table saw. Once this bevel cut has been takin care of one step closer
away from table saw use. Long cuts on the EZ-1 would be nice also with out the use of the UEG or ripsizer like say 2x4x8 or 2x4x12 even the long 1x? Maybe we could push the wood under the saw not sure how safe that would be.

i hate the table saw personally

i'm just an amateur, but i find it hard to keep everything perfectly straight when im trying to slide the wood against the fence. it's never dead on like my ripsizer.

hell, my ripsizer is even off slightly because the plastic pieces that hold the track to the rails are too thick, yet it still cuts better and easier than my table saw.

only pros i'd give to the table saw is that it's easier to square up the fence than it is to square up the track on the ripsizer. it's also a bit easier to measure cuts.

thanks. i like that it takes up such a small footprint. (12x15)

i will make a second one for the other side of the room so it is symmetrical.

i may lay them down one in front of the other in the center of the room and put my equipment rack ontop of them as an alternative. have to see

No, it is difficult doing bevel cuts on the EZ-1. I hate my table saw, but it is still easier to do bevel cuts on it.

I agree completely with that.
