Might be as simple as draping some sandbags over the bars before raising them back up. I put some of those snap-on hooks on the end of my cables (looks like you may have too) and I have four 5# dumb bell weights with eyelets that I hook to the cables to raise it out of the way. You surely don't want someone opening the overhead door with the cables extended.





Spicyguy was right that Amazon has the best price, that's where I ordered mine. Capacity is 250 pounds. Don't know if they still carry them but I bought two of them at Menard's on sale for less than $100. I use one for material storage and the other for the PBB.
See comments in blue.

Yeah, I do have carabiners on the ends of the cables. Using dumb bells is a good idea. I have some of them laying around. I would have to take the bars off the cables to use them but that wouldn't be a big deal. I could put eye bolts thru the centers of the weights then attach them.

Default bevel

I also would like to see what you come up with for the bevel cuts.
because speakers are what I would like to try and build on a regular
basis and there is not to mutch info on them.

Waiting for your instructions.


I can't really comment too much about this yet because I haven't done much. I just cut some ply for making the sliding inserts. That went fine, but I haven't cut enough to report. For me the biggest trick will bevel cuts, that is the only thing I will be doing that will be outside of the "normal" stuff everyone else does on the EZ-One. For speaker building we do a lot of bevel cuts. I already know I will NOT be angling the bridge. That seems like it would be WAY too much work to do each time I want a bevel cut. Once I figure out the best ways for me to do that I can do another video.


I will be very curious to see what you have cooking...


.
Ok, I may delay the moduni base to include the next moduni with a very unique feature for beveling cuts.
Due to patent issues and regulations I can't talk until we fet a provisional application applied.
EU and Us patent offices have different rules and you gave to play thier game that is designed to take your money...

I will delay the Moduni base for two weeks to include the beveling
capability to the EXACT same cut line and no need to cut the edges.
A very unique base.

Default moduni base

Dino I will also wait to put my order in for the moduni until you have the bevel capacity . I modified my other moduni base to do bevel cuts doing trim it is beneficial to have that.

Default Bevel

It will be nice to do bevel cuts with no difficult setups or changes from the norm.
Just tilt the saw.
