Default Why is EZ-ONE Squaring Fence Longer to the Right Side?

Something I've wondered for a while ...

Why is the EZ-ONE Squaring Rail longer (48") than the Sliding Rails (44")?

... and ...

Why have the Squaring Rail stick out farther to the right side as a default, as opposed to the left side? Yes, I know it can be moved as needed.

FYI - The Squaring Rail is the SSME that is (usually) fixed in place and closest to the B300 Bridge handle. The other two SSSMEs are the Sliding Rails.

I'd always assumed it was to support wider material. Also gives you a place to put a longer scale

ken, All SSME's are movable.
You better use the second fence for squaring pieces up to 30"?
Having the fence in front of the wood stops the wood from moving.
the sliding fences must be squared to the track. very easy to do with
a home made jig or a square.
If you cut small pieces...again, use the second fence.
Move it close to you so you don't have to reach further.

If you ever have to cut 48" is much easier to make sure the First Fence
(SSME) is square instead going to the far end.
When you cut very large panels you don't have to worry about movements because the Bridge applies pressure and the weight of the large panel helps.
