Router Cabinet
 
Got a little burned out on the big kitchen job. Got fired up again to build a new router table (old one was in the wing of my Uni I sold).

First the plans. I use cutlist free to sort out the parts. I can also manually arrange them too:

Set up my EZ-One and slide the panel from my storage rack to the EZ-One:

Then trim the end to be square:

Cut some pieces to length:

Next for the second sheet I need a long rip so I'll use my smart table (sacrificial boards on EZ-One):

Orientate the panel with a twist to make sure you have full support after the cut:

Ahh - I used a cabinet support and piece of the ply as a story stick:

Getting ready for the cut. My Hilti didn't fit my new UEG so I attached my little used Makita 18V. I was surprised - it is very light weight, plenty of power for this ply, very thin kerf, and with a 6-1/2" blade has 2"+ depth of cut. This may be "THE" saw for the UEG. Only thing I may do is remount the saw further back so the blade is centered in the UEG. Since it was so far toward the front there wasn't much guide on the edge of the ply at the beginning of the cut:

Don't you love it when the cut goes well:

The cut was a perfect 24" start to finish - my guess is less than 1/64" variance over 8'. This may become my favorite EZ tool.

I did spend time trying to get my EZ-One square ...again. I'm now convinced it has to do with the stops. My EZ-One has the front SSME with SME's on top. The center pads where the stops get fastened are proud to the outer pads. The allows the stops to possible tilt. I think I'll make some metal stops. Other than this it was a perfect afternoon :D.

Lazy is a good description. I don't like to admit it but I am getting older (I'm 56 :eek:). With the EZ-One, my heavy lift, UEG, & some roller stands I can work my way through ply faster than when I was in my 20's.

A hacksaw to both ends of my two Hilti's and they fit fine on the new Ueg base

I know exactly what you are talking about. A couple of months ago, I went thru 15 sheets in one day and didn't have to pickup a sheet.

Hey!

what's going on there? is that a new left blade smart base, or did you just hack it up to make it fit? :confused::eek::confused:

edit: sorry if my posts are getting old. I think about 80% of my posts are about left blade bases and ripsizer upgrades :(

this is what drives ez.
the new base is going to work with left and right saws.
the ripsizer upgrade is almost done.
