Dino,

What are you using in picture #5 to hold the SMEs in place to the wood? This looks very much like a solution to what I've been wanting to do with a work cart with 2 or 3 removable tops to suit various tasks.

Thanks,
Roy

Now I don't know if your discontinuing the Smart tracks, but if not, instead of a full plywood top, how about strips of either MDO, UHMW, or SME's with your PBB2STK kit risers, as crossbracing?
Hi Randal.
The smart table kit stays in production.
This design needs the top for bracing the SME's.
Quick and $imple.

Many people have banquet legs or they can buy them from HD
for only $15.00? ( not the same quality but good enough for the job)
Same with a piece of Ply.
You can even buy precut ply 24"x48" at HD and Lowes.

just another thought to make it easier.
What makes this idea possible is the special ( hard to find) hardware
that we will make them available.
14 inserts and special screws for the SME's
and 8 inserts/washers/screws for the top.

Hi Roy.
This one?
http://tracksawforum.com/showthread.php?t=420
T-nuts and 1/4-20 screws.
The SME's are designed to accept 1/2" t-nuts or 5/16" nuts.
thanks

Here's an idea... how about routing a channel for the STK tracks into the top of the new Smart Table/PBB? Then, if you need to rip a large sheet, you can simply insert the rails w/ the 1x4s into the table and saw away. When you need a nice flat surface and for other EZ jobs, take the rails out and have at it. Whattya think?

I agree with Randall, it looks like a PPB to me, how are you supposed to support 4x8 sheets with that? Guess I am missing something.......

Larry,

I think that Dino is looking at this as a "base". You can add either the bridge to make it a pbb or add the smart table stuff to make it a smart table.

I would go a step further, reading between Dino's lines. He talked about the hardware kit (T nuts), that this would allow you to screw down either the STK, or SME's and then use either the PBB2STK kit, or SME's as a PBB.

Sometimes I get the way Dino thinks, other times, not a clue.

Now to the comment about precut 2x4' panels, I can't tell you how many times, or how handy they have been, with leaving a STK in the truck or out on the patio. (only wish they had better plywood)

When you carry it the step further, you are starting to limit your self. I think Dino mentioned that just as one possibility - something to get you to thinking of the possibilities. Imagine you are a painter and that simple table is a canvas - have a ball creating a EZ table to fit your wallet and fulfill your dreams!!

Burt,
Today i was thinking my original goal. safety and affordability.
Providing the hardware and pictures, many users can build
their own smart tables/pbb's with a min. investment.

You're doing the same thing with your designs.
Your homemade bridge/pbb may take away some sales from eurekazone
but in the other hand many people can enjoy the ez idea without spending money that they may don't have or need for other priorities.

Between the lines is time to open the ez doors to anyone.
The EZ design philosophy is to find simplicity in manufacturing
and affordability to the users.

On target.

Same here.

Randal, The hardware kit is to build the above table.
Banquet legs are only good if you bolt them very secured to the plywood.
The t-nuts allow you to build a table without building a frame and the same time remove the sides if needed. ( non dedicated sme's)

The smart table kit is optional. Same with the pbb2stk kit.


sides.
