Yes, for sure.

I actually use pucks doubled up(sometimes even tripled) to get some height all the time.
The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.

Yes...I use scrap wood or you can make simple I-beams or really anything to gain height.  Plus with the clamping possibilities you can easily clamp boards to allow for overhang when using a jigsaw or router and often clamp material right to the surface.

Thanks Scot and Dovetail65. Just to be sure I understand you, So as far as you are concerned I can use the the guides on the MFT just the same as if I was using a TS only I have to raise the material being cut and the guides.
Thanks for your help with this.

For the ts55 on my bench I use rigid foam insulation, in small squares that are easy to store. If you cut into it it doesn't matter and there's no resistance. Prob don't want that with a jig saw though.
