Ok JS thanks yes I know its the wrong forum for this but what the hey we are still talking about what the EZ tools are used for and sometimes we get off topic no matter where its at.

Will get back with you on what the best to do along the way there all knew to me but looks very interesting.

Caamin,
Burt is working for many years to come -up with the ultimate ssrk solution.
I think, he can give you few hints without exposing all his work.

go with the ssrk is my way of thinking.
6-7 lbs of jig. super heavy duty and more options.

Default Ssrk

Hi Dino,

What is the max length you can extend the ssrk from guide rail, say my guide rail is on the bridge which is in the center of 5 ft table if I use that guide rail and want to do an edge routing will it extend 2.5 ft till the edge of my work table, if it's not that long can we order extra pieces to make it longer.

Why order extra pieces when you already have the tracks?
The SSRK is using the ez track so you don't have to keep buying?

Also: That platform seems awfully large, and the website shows a router mounted near the outer edge. Wouldn't it be better to mount it near the INNER edge, and lop-off all that extra plastic?

This would probably be less flexible, and a lot nicer when you want to use the router free-hand. - though I suppose you could always buy a second router-base, and never remove the platform at all. Still....

Am I missing something?

Also, I assume Dino will sell us additional platforms, for different routers? (Why isn't this already listed on the website?)
Well first for dust control I would think a smaller opening would be better.
Now as for the router on the edge yes there is a reason because if you look at the other side you will see two knobs and you need them to work
freely. I do find you need support on the sides of your cut board because the base will dip if know support where needed.

When mounting a router you must consider getting to controls and bit changes. Too close to the track end can make access difficult.

Larger is better having access and transforming the ssrk to many other setups. You need the extra plastic and you have to keep the design open.
many ez users come up with great ideas and the extra sized plastic base is always useful.

there is no flex with a larger base...only the opposite.
weight is distributed in larger area making the router super stable.

More things to be posted but the way someone may read your posts is like everything is awfully designed.
If you have a large base you can easily make a smaller one.
if you don't you have to spend time and money to find one?

BW, What I think happens I could be wrong but
in your way of thinking if the tool does not do or work
like you think it should then there is something wrong
with how it is made. A lot of the tools are made different
because a lot of the older ways of doing things in most
cases was not safe.

I believe EZ does test and test again what ever they make
sure there are changes along the way and that is to make them
even better then they were or cost less to build kinda thing.

Some people will never change from how they learned to do things
and some will very hard to think outside the box and this is what EZ
is all about.
