Hey Dino,

Saw your post about the patent. I understand if nothing can be revealed until filing.


One thing I've been struggling with on the ueg is cutting small lightweight panels. Right now I'm breaking down 24x48" panels in 3/8 and 1/4. I order this size as opposed to 4x8 because it's cheap to ship.

Right now I screw the ends of the board down to my table to hold the wood in place

I can't use clamps because the legs of the ueg would hit them.

Can't use friction because the boards are too light and small.

Alternative is one-handing the ueg and using the other hand to hold the board, but that leaves room for error or kerf marks if I twist a bit.


Any better ideas?

DWC, Trap the piece to be cut with similar thickness wood in 2 sides.
front and one side.

on the ez-one is much easier. move the fences and the stops.
if the stops are in the way of the saw....use spacers.

Screw down cleats of the same thickness as your material or thinner to your table and butt your material into those? I do this often and have found that in most case you only have to put cleats on 2 sides.
