PostSubject: Intro - EZ Smart 100" Package   April 26th 2009, 10:01 pm

I am new to this forum. I build cabinets for a hobby. I have been looking at the EZ Smart guide system for breaking down sheets of plywood and finally cracked. However, I bought it through a friend so it was untraceable to SWMBO.

I really like the system. My present project, I broke down 5 sheets of 3/4" oak and the system really worked nice. I did break one of the EAC-1 while setting up the system. And it is very important to wait until the blade stops before you lift the saw off the guide. I ruined both anti chip edges on the guide, but I didnt use the other two yet, so I will trim those to fit when I get the chance.

All in all, I really like the system. I do plan to get a Makita 5008 MGA as one of my next purchases.

Welcome Rich. Your system will really shine when you build cabinets with it. And the 5008 is a very good tool. There are a lot of very knowledgeable folks here that enjoy helping, so don't hesitate asking questions. I'm a raw beginner, but have learned a lot in just reading the threads.

Hi Rich, I also really like the EZ system. I guess you know about the different Bridge systems that EZ offers. I have the B-300, let me tell you, it is the one thing that any woodworker should have in his shop or garage or basement or wherever your cutting wood. Your saw sits on the guide rail and you don't need to remove it, your guide rail is connected to the B-300 you lower the handle and your rail and saw rise up, you place your wood under the rail and raise the handle and the rail and saw come down for your cut. I can't say enough about the B-300, it saves so much time and is a real asset.

Rich - I've been there done that several times when I was getting used to the system. You have already learned why a saw with a brake is important and will get into the habit of waiting till the blade stops - it's just the learning curve. I've progressed through Makita 5007, 5008, and now the "BIG" boy 5104. I was able to catch the 5104 when it was offered by Dino on e-bay with the MS cash-back deal. This 5104 is great on the bridge. But, that being said I miss the smaller saws for pure rail work so I picked up a new 5007 off my local CL but haven't put a base on it yet. I think the 5008 is the best choice if you want just one saw. The only negative is that the 8-1/4" blades tend to be expensive and hard to find locally.

Care to share what your project is?
