PostSubject: SGS and Smart Square with handle as replacement for a chop saw?   July 22nd 2008, 5:39 am

Hi everyone. I have a short length of guide rail attached to my smart square with handle. It is great for crosscutting lumber at a right angle however I haven't had much luck efficiently making the more unique cuts often executed with a chop saw. Has anyone experienced luck replacing their chop saw EZily? I'd rather not invest in the Bridge yet, so was hoping to perform this function with my existing setup. Thanks for your input.

Hi Jeff.
Are you using the square like a fence on the far side?
Take a look here:

Not trying to sell you a Bribge but very soon we will see the Cross cutting Bridge
with self clamping features. A version of the B-300.

I think, if you use the square as a fence you can do your cross cuts very easy.

Jeff,

Another option is to use a miter gauge. I have a couple of the cheaper Incra miter gauges that I often use with the EZ. My self and a few others have taken the standard miter bar off and replaced it with a piece of ez connector. Then we attach something for a fence - back to back extrusion, a piece of wood or----. It involves drilling and tapping a few holes. I employ this both on the EZ rails and the PBB.

Burt - I've seen you mention this a few times. Would it be possible for you to post a pic or two for slow learners? I'm especially interested in how you use it on the rail and PBB - i.e. on the PBB, does your PBB need an SME running parallel to the rail to accept the connector...



Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

I'll try to make time for the photos in the next few days.

In general it is easiest to use the miter in a extrusion that is parallel to the cutting rail. But at the same time, I have used a miter in an extrusion that is 90 degrees to the cutting rail. It can be used for straight cuts of making angled rip cuts.
