All done. Time to cut wood

One problem is that the foam under the track really grips the wood strong. Since there is no fence under the track, it sometimes knocks the wood out of alignment when setting the track down if you do it too fast. The forward pushing motion in the bridge is amplified.

Chris - bought a Makita 36V track saw system about the same time you did. I've been busy on other things like trying to turn wood and fabricating a mobile base for my lathe but finally got a chance to play with the Makita last weekend. All I can say is DINO you really-really-really need to market a saw for your system. A universal base sounds great but like Chris said it's great to have a system designed to work together.

I also have the Makita rear handle cordless and both these saws are quiet and have the power of a corded saw.

My oldest son got lucky too. He bought a house about a year ago and gets my EZ stuff (that way if I need it I know where it is).

I'm currently in the same boat I'm looking at the Makita offerings right now for the same reasons.

I set up two saws (craftsman & Hitachi) myself with EZ bases then bought a EZ ready saw. Shouldn't have wasted my time on the EZsmart saw. It is inferior to the Hitachi in every way, only thing I liked was the light that comes on letting you know it has power going to it.

Things I love most about EZ, UEG & SSRK . Things that are annoying about it all the tinkering & things because it's a universal system. Nothing comes with measurement indicators etc the whole system feels like a not fully realized idea. I work in a factory & we build lot of our own automation we say it's easy to get 90% of the way there it's that last 10% that is the difference between something that is okay & something that is actually great. I'm sorry but that is exactly where EZ is right now almost there unfortunately this is where it's been since I bought into the system & I stop by every now & then but sadly it doesn't seem to be going anywhere
