The PL won't cause anything to expand. It is possible to push the braces in too far and cause a panel to bow outward. I did that on my first T39. I cut the braces to relieve the pressure on the back panel, pulled the panels straight with clamps then glued some wood onto the cut braces so they would still brace the panel.

JS what I ment by that was to use the second bevel track
with the saw left at 90 then have a stop fence under the bridge.
Set the hight of the blade to just touch the table top
then push you thin stock like a 2x4 or what ever to the blade
like tunnel routing only with the saw.

I have not tried this kinda cut but would think it could be done
and now that the bridge can be moved anywhere like say right to the edge
of the EZ-1 you could run your stock from the outside with some support.

That sounds scary and seems to be the opposite of the dead wood concept to me.

By the way, does your browser not have a spell check built in? Mine underlines all the misspelled words with a squiggly red line. Then I can right click and pick the correct spelling. It takes like two seconds.

Well I guess in a way it could sound that way but there still would be pressure on the piece being cut so you would push from one end and pull from the other your hands don't get close to the blade. So it's nothing like a table saw. It was just a thought.

As for the spelling don't worry about it not a big deal for the most part.
Sometimes I check thinks better other times I just let it go.
And yes there is a red line for words that the dictionary doesn't know or that are mist spelled. I do understand I go back and read some myself and say OMG what the hell is that lol. I don't have a problem with it though because there are many that make mistakes I make more then most but then again post more then most and I'm not going to shy from it because of some spelling. People don't drive very well and there still on the road just saying.

.

JS,

Dino and I did a good bit of work on what we called the EZ Ripper. That was a circular saw mounted overhead and wood was feed against the blade rotation. The setup is safe and eliminates the kickback problems of the tablesaw. I even did a setup that included a stockfeeder. 'Don't really remember why we moved on without bring it to market.

If you don't care that people can't understand you or make sense of some of your posts, then yeah, it's no big deal.

It probably wouldn't kill you to check thinks better all time.

Because better ways to handle the same cuts came up maybe? Like the ripsizer? I don't know about using something similar to the EZ Ripper as a solution for bevel cuts, as was suggested in this thread.
