PostSubject: Adam Stone - EZ On Site   April 13th 2009, 7:41 am

Hi Guys,

We're building two large bars on site at two different locations as part of larger projects. We're also trimming like crazy. We hired a great trim guy to help with the volume. I wish to highlight today's experiences as they relate to classic on-site EZ work.

Lately, I've been carrying around the 64" rail and 50" rail, connectors and clamps purchased a couple years ago. I'll refer to them as the "EZ Rig" for brevity. They're constantly surrounded by bags of concrete, buckets of joint compound, lumber and tools. You can't hurt them. They're tough.

My first stop was to meet the trim guy and work with him for a while. He needed 3-inch rips on some 1/2 inch OSB for some special shims needed for layered baseboard. Out came the EZ Rig and the PC 325. Before the third song was over on the radio all rips were done and stacked with the trim. The trim guy's response was "wow cool". Next at the same location, I squared the bar top edges in preparation for Chicago style bar rail trim. The top was constructed from oak tongue and groove flooring. The bar is longer than the two connected rails, so I cut as far as I could, stopped the saw and left it in place, slid the rails past the end of the cut, reclamped, backed the saw off a couple inches and finished the cut. The results were great, as expected. I didn't have the EZ square with me so I grabbed a framing square, drew a line, put the white strip of the 50" rail on the line, crosscut the oak, perfect. I would have used the EZ square and the 32" rail if I had them with me for the crosscuts.

My next stop was at the second location to work on the second bar. I pulled out the EZ Rig again. I ripped hardwood stock, cut cabinet ply to go under the bar rail and built Shaker style bar panels for the base (see picture). When it was all done, I tossed the EZ Rig and saw back in the van and drove home. During the drive, I thought how could these tasks have been done on site in the past in one day and without a drop of blood. None of today's items are earth-shattering but we knocked out a bunch of work. The portable EZ Rig is one of the most helpful set-ups in the arsenal.
