I break sheets of plywood down initially by ripping with the UEG and the plywood sitting on an open plywood grid, and find that I need to clamp the plywood so that it doesn't move away from me due to the pressure of the fence on the edge of the plywood. It doesn't take much - you can see the strip of plywood clamped to the grid with a spring clamp in the attached photo. And, of course, the clamp and stop need to be below the plywood once it gets narrow enough that the arms of the UEG would hit.

I considered the centipede for a ueg cut table, too. But you still have to throw a sacrificial board on top so your cut off doesn't cave in or fall to the floor.

I figured may as well just have banquet legs on a 24x48 sheet. You're still storing a tabletop somewhere either way.

Everything seemed to slide on me using the UEG without a positive stop. But that was just on the insulatiom

If you have weather stripping, that'll grip.

Or maybe dots of hot glue on the table. Still a bit gummy when it dries, so might grip too

I did purchase the anti-slip pads for the centipede sawhorse but have yet to use them. I haven't had a problem with the material wanting to move as I cut.

As for demo vids...
EZ is not only a product but a concept
Most of us are visual learners
Video is the preferred medium

A lot of guys will never realize how useful a track saw system is until you show them.

For example, watch the Incra vids. Though dated, they do a great job showing how their positioning system works and what makes it valuable.

A weekly video showing how to do everyday tasks and build common projects faster and safer with EZ? Why not?

I wasn't completely sold on EZ until I saw Laney's 20 minute video on the EZ1 and Dino's demos of the UEG.

What if EZ did a video contest? Offered tools as prizes? Put links for viewing and voting on the web site?

Hire a guy to produce some new YouTube vids with Dino, in HD, good sound, prepared script. If Dino doesn't want to be the star, sponsor a guy with some personality to do it.
