Default UEG Work Surface

The recommendation to clamp down the material when using the Universal Edge Guide (UEG) leads me to wondering what people are putting their material on when they use the UEG.

Does your table/surface allow clamping of the material?

Right now, I have a frame with 2X6 rails and 2X6 cross members which are sacrificial.
It sets on a couple saw horses that have pockets for the rails to sit into.

I guess I could clamp the far end of the piece, cut partially and then move clamps behind the cut

Larry, I'm sure you can come up with a way not to clamp the materials.
even if the panel moves while cutting the ueg moves with it.
if you want to stop any movement...2 small blocks of thin wood
or even 2 small screws for a stop can do the trick.

what final size and from what size materials are you cutting?

thx

The piece that I had trouble with was 48X36 or so, original.
I was looking for 48X24 final piece.
I was cutting 3/4 plywood.
I think CDX

I, probably, could have and should have used my EZ track for this
In hind sight.

CDX...yes. Or round-up the base to avoid the rough surfaces.

Cut with the good side up. I recently cut up a bunch of cdx from Home Depot. Man it was lousy stuff. Every sheet looked like a banana. Should have picked a btter quality but I wasn't doing the picking.

I'm thinking he's saying to put a radius or chamfer on the front corner of the saw base to help it ride over rough spots.

I brake down sheet goods with UEG on my plywood cart as reported elsewhere here.
