Same with me Randal like a 7" spacer from the first slot or dado 3.5"
But I like the to spacer idea and then use for cut line of the track with the AC1. The moduni looks good also.

Randal, the only tool system in the market that was designed
from the getgo to be fully reversible and two directional is
the ez system.

the only thing that is not 100% is the smart base and that was by design to push the users away from the left bladed saws. Safety first before sales.

The moduni base offers build in ac-1 design and renewable ac-3.
With only 1/64" or 1/32" opening next to the blade you can easily close the gap with a tape?
No reason to make and sell another tool when the answer is ez.

if you like, you can use the ac-1 on the moduni bases.
Remove the section in the front and make the ac-1 to fit.
this is something that is going to be done in the future but not before 2012.

complainer...

Complaining? I remember years ago (when you found out I was a lefty) that you said it was your eventual goal to have it bidirectional base. My saw doesn't have the moduni base, but a custom one you installed some time ago. It works well on the track, but to say their is no reason for the AC-1, is like saying never with the EZ.

That is just the wrong (closed) minded attitude, we wouldn't want its creator to have.

I don't think there is ever a never with Dino its a when he gets to it or puts it at the top of his list. It is very hard not to see new ways things can be done with the EZ system. Look at the guys making there own jigs to make things work better for the till EZ gets around to it.

I just keep checking here to see what changes come up each day. I'm still waiting on USPS to send my EZ-One when ever they get off there butt would be nice. You know how it is a man and his toys.

How has the double-sided tape held up for those that have used it?

5008MGA owners, how did you clear the way for the blade guard in the base? Did you just file the base down?

John,

I think the oldest saw that I have setup is one of my Hilti's. That is at least 5 years old and no problem.

To remove the base, gentlely pry off with a screwdriver or pry bar. Use paint thinner (mineral spirits) to remove the tape.

'Sorry I don't remember specifics on how I installed the EZ Base on the 5008. Currently it is mounted on a ripper without the base.

I marked the area that needed to be removed and used my Dremel to grind away the plastic.

I bought my first system in 2004 and because at the time, there was no method to use left blade saws (my others were Worm saws), I bought the new at the time, Bosch, CS20 and ordered the dust chute (it was due out but came out about three months later).
It is 2011 and I just removed the base (reusable) and need to finish cleaning off the tape, as I am planning on CL that saw.
Screwing through, became standard about a year later. I never found the need to change it.
