Default An Assembly Video

Joe,

Great work. Here is a quick video of me assembling the EZ RipSizer. I hope to eventually work up an instructional video, but this should be a good accompaniment to your document.

Very nice and well written directions.

Doesn't the Ripsizer come with a stick on tape? If so, you should add installation instructions for that, including how to make sure it is aligned with the saw blade.

Also, you note in your instructions that you must cut the EAC. If these directions are to be the ones shipped with the RipSizer, directions for cutting the EAC should also be included, either as part of this document or as a separate document. If they are separate, then this document should note something like "See attached directions for cutting the EAC".

When writing these kinds of things you always have to write as though the person reading them has no prior knowledge and has never visited the EZ forum or website.

Yes. This is a problem that we (I) always forget.
The ripsizer can be used without any other ez parts and full instructions must be included. Even the base installation.

We wil do just that now that we have the final version.

Dino - I can email you the working document for what I did. I did it in Open Office. I may go back and tweak the images a little since the quality is not as good as I would have liked. I will make some changes and send the file to you. Then all that has to be done is open the file in Open Office, make your changes, and print or export to PDF from there. If the computer stuff is confusing...ask Dik

I think the RipSizer should have its own assembly section. Maybe ship the RipSizer with all applicable instructions (RipSizer assembly, trimming the EAC, attaching the smart base to the saw, and general instructions on the EZ way of doing things). These last three could all be part of one document and included with all product orders where these would apply/ And the product specific assembly instructions (i.e. RipSizer, EZ-One, SSRK, etc...) could be separate documents.

Glad I can help contribute to EZ.

Joe

Everyone-
Here is the new RipSizer Manual in PDF format. Look for it to be posted soon on the Eurekazone site. Dino also mentioned that the instructions will be included with future RipSizer orders. Any changes/corrections to the instructions will be posted in this forum and appropriate changes also made to the link on the EZ site.

Joe,

You've set the standard. Now all of our instruction sheets need to comply.
