You're very welcome, doc. I'll just add that the guide rail brackets have the unique ability to be finely adjusted to any possible misalignment of top-to-table frame that might be found on other benches. Last, we're close to offering a new accessory called the Outrigger® that's making some noise already.

I’ve seen both the guide rail bracket adjustment and the outrigger in your videos. All of this stuff is incredibly well thought out.

I’ll ask another question, if you don’t mind. Am I reading it right that the pro pack comes with six SpiRail dogs (two  with the rip fence and four with the pair of Un-Paralleled Parallel Guides?

Also, between those accessories, the Track-Stars (largely for rail alignment), and the door and panel supports, is there a number of Spi-Rail dogs you suggest a user of the system might like to have on hand? Obviously, “it depends” is the full answer, but I was curious if you’ve seen a pattern of people wanting more than 6? The setup for a rip with both guides uses all six dogs without any left over for the rail.

Unparalleled Parallel Guides come with their own SpiRail™ Dogs, so we don't actually count them as a pair on their own. Also, we've made a change in the last week with some new and better hardware for the Rip Fence and the upcoming F2 fence, so that they're no longer attached with SpiRail™ Dogs but with special spacers and bolts/knobs.

I'd say that if you'd like to have the Door and Panel Supports (SpiRail™ Dogs included) always at the ready and no swapping of rail dogs to use with your guide rails, then it might be best to request as many pairs as you have guide rails and you'll be all set.

Thank you very much for your compliment! The system represents nine years' work.
