Hmmm, feeding stock through a fixed blade sounds either like a table saw (saw on bottom) or a radial arm saw (saw on top).

As Dik mentioned, if you don't have a straight side you can just use a long track (or two or more connected tracks) with the clamps to create a clean straight edge.

After that you can use the EZ Smart Universal Edge Guide ($49) to make repeated cuts of the exact same width.

If you are trying to cut very narrow strips - smaller than allowed with the Universal Edge Guide - then the EZ Smart Clamp System ($80) replaces the typical clamps and allows you to cut VERY narrow strips - fractions of an inch in width. The bolts on the clamps even act as feet - to keep the track level during the cut. You can use a combination square to make sure that the rail is perfectly positioned for the cuts. Use two combination squares with a helper to act as mini repeaters.

Thanks for theth responses and keep'em comin'!

I'm trying to think of any downside to going to a bigger PBB.
Space: takes up more space but only half the space of a completely separate place to break down sheet goods.
Budget: minimal since I already have the guide rail and bridge
Time: always ready for any size cut (up to 8' long)

What else?
I'm about to talk myself into it.
