Default cut-line indicator

Seems I remembered a request for a pocket-storable cut-line indicator for those of us who don't utilize the EZ ACEs in our track, so thought about it and came up with this. (http://www.tracksawforum.com/showthr...ghlight=pocket 3rd poster)

Pic one shows the main cut-line indicators I normally use: block of wood, milled to ride on the EZ track raised portion, w/a bent wire pointer indicating either right-side, or, left-side of saw blade. The pocket version is the white thingie in the pic.

Pics 2 & 3 show the indicator up close. It is an easy one-handed affair. Spring is stiff enough to keep everything pushed up where it ought to be; light enough to easily compress. Plus, the knurled nut allows one to tighten/loosen tension.

To use, pinch the modified 1/4-20 bolt, as in pic 3, and slide into the track edge. To re-position, pinch again and slide along the track. Releasing the spring keeps it all snug. Markers are allen set-screws.

Not as exacting as the bent-wire versions, but very, very close.

Here's my version, a sliding block with adjustable cursor. The cursor shown has a line for both R & L-side of the kerf (which I feel now is overkill). Easy to adjust for different saw/blade, just make a short cut into the part and then adjust the cursor to line up with the appropriate side of the kerf.
