Default Ideas on using a bridge.

I have a bunch of 2'x4' benches with makeshift tops. They are strong and stable. Anyway, I just ordered a bridge.

I have the 56" track, will that be long enough to mount on the 48" side or will I have to go with the 24" side?

My 54" track is not long enough for my 48" table. Needs a small extension to at least 64"

I have a 72" on my 48" PBB. A 64" would probably work but... for the convenience of resting the saw on the track at either end of the table , I like 72".

Hmmm, make another table, or buy another guide rail..... it's always something.

Not always with ez.
use (1) 1/2" plywood and crew it under the rack...
use another small piece of plywood (1/2" )in top or if and a 5/8" strip same as the guide rail..

Keep in mind that ez is double walled. box core construction. You can screw-modify and play with all your ideas
without dealing with issues later.

15 minutes and you have a parking spot

Or...If you have extra connectors...screw the right thickness wood in top or the connectors?

Or...many other ways to make a parking spot.
In the future...ez is going to offer a hinged track
to make shipping easier and affordable.
the hinged portion 12" ( Parking spot ) can be made from any materials.

using 1/2" track as standard size ( like ez) it make it easier to add and modify.

You can even use the side t-tracks to connect the extensions.
standard hardware and bolts.
Please, Look at the track again. 3 years in making there is nothing that you can't do with a simple ez track.
happy new year,

Happy New Year Dino,
I think I am missing the visual on what you are describing.
