Title: 8020/TS 55/Rip Guides/TSO Modular Panel Saw
Post by: Richard/RMW on October 12, 2019, 07:25 PM
This has been on the project list for a long time. Originally I was going to make it free-standing, later I decided to find a way to fit it inside the shop footprint. After spending an hour rummaging thru the 80/20 boneyard today I found some pieces that added up to a Version 1.0 attempt. Ripping:

[attachimg=1]

Crosscutting, where I'll use the 3rd set:

[attachimg=2]

Basic setup:

[attachimg=3]

[attachimg=4]

Hardware for one set:

[attachimg=5]

4 screws hold them together. Disassembled the hardware be slid along the work surface for storage:

[attachimg=6]

This setup uses the 1515 sacrificial cutting thingies I already have, they get used constantly. I seldom cut on the MFT surface anymore, mostly I just plop a couple of these on the work surface and use the Rip Guides or TSO square for everything.

Full disclosure: I haven't attempted a cut yet. There is enough length to rip a full sheet of ply, I made up 3 sets of hardware and hope to try it out tomorrow.

I made your 1515 extensions years ago and use them.  This is a nice addition to that idea.

Great work and inventiveness!
