Maybe because I'm an engineer that works for a company that is worried about Intellectual Property (IP), but, an idea like this is unique and patent-able. I wouldn't doubt with all the ideas generated here that big green isn't continuously lurking here. Is there some way at least EZ can protect some of the ideas shown here?

I just hid then unhid the thread. I found these in a 1979 B&D Router Craft Book. The idea that Charlie has is an interesting adaption, but doubt it can be patented. Correct me if I am wrong.

I think router based ornamental mills have been around for as long as routers. Legacy ornamental mills are commercially available and are basically a frame made out of aluminum extrusions much like the EZ1. Nothing really new here.

Don't want to carry this too far because I love seeing (& posting) new things, but, many patents are given for ideas that may not be unique alone but combined are. In this example the mill is being applied to a track saw system with an SSRK that makes it work is very unique (sort of like comparing two cans and a string with a cell phone).

Dino,
Sorry, but my hearing is bad and I don't do well on phones. I am also retired and no longer do any paperwork unless absolutely necessary. If you want to patent something have at it. I'll be in the shop spending my time in a more productive manner.

I ordered some UHMW plastic from you today along with a second ssrk and plan to rebuild the jig properly now that I know it will work. I think I can make it work better and with fewer parts.

Hey Charlie welcome to the forum and I like how you think also life is to short.
When you get a plan together let me know what parts you used to do this and maybe I will put one together myself. I'm sure some other EZ guys would like to see what you come up with..
