Hi Rick, and welcome to EZ. I see no one has replied to your post, so I'll try. It was unclear what you meant by plastic extrusions. Because it was a special package, it may not be the commonly sold packages, but I'm posting links to a couple of the commonly sold packages below.

There are only two possibilities I can think of that fit that description (plastic extrusions). One would be the anti-chip edge that goes with the track. It's a white plastic extrusion. Here's a link to the page showing it:
http://www.eurekazone.com/tracksaw_c...nts_s/1955.htm

The other would be the plastic extrusions that come with the MFT, that you put sacrificial wood into. This is a brown extrusion that holds 1x material. Here's a link to the page showing that.
http://www.eurekazone.com/tracksaw_c...nts_s/1955.htm

These links will give you some idea of the function of the extrusions, unless it's something different. I hope this gives you a start. If this is not accurate, you may want to phone the folks at Eurekazone and ask them the name of what was in the package. There are also instructions on the EZ website that will help you get started with using the system, but as many of us know, there's a learning curve, and posting questions here can be very helpful in that learning curve.

They are the 2nd one you mentioned.Both links you posted are identical, only relating to the anti chip .I signed up for one of the first batches of the MFT..The package with the break.And The 6' which changed to 4' plastic for the sacrificial 1x4.

It looks like they are intended for vertical cutting, as you say. Not sure of the configuration and how they would attach to the MFMT for that, but you should call eurekazone and ask them about it. I didn't see any pictures of them in use, though I looked at the website. Or you could email Eurekazone your question and send the picture you posted here.

It looks to me like to get to the picture shown in Dik's link, you need to cut two of those plastic extrusions in half... possibly that bit of advice is not explained properly in the assembly instructions?

In total you should have 8 plastic extrusions and shorter than what you took a picture of and it's possibly EZ made a change to the length allowing the user to cut them to a size they prefer but just forgot to mention this and thus, avoid confusion . That would be my guess looking at the product page and image you posted.

This is what was intended with the long plastic extrusions. This allows the table top to be set against the wall for use as a vertical panel saw.

Hmm. That is pretty cool. When I looked at the product page though there are no images or explanation that would have led me to this info. The link for the vertical panel saw option said the product is discontinued.
