Using this table has been amazingly easy. Instructions provided are clear and unambiguous, and the individual parts fit very well together. Prompt delivery is a bonus.
I have cut sheet goods every sloppy, haphazard, and dangerous way there is. Those days are in my past. I will no longer dread breaking down a full 4x8 sheet. I will no longer struggle with laying out or guiding my cut. This is the best money I've spent in a long time.
Directions are perfectly clear, and even written with some personality. And made in the U.S.A.! What's not to like?
I bought a bunch of rough sawn lumber and instead of attempting to use jointer to put a straight edge on each piece, I used your track system to accomplish the task. This actually had several benefits.
1. The track method saved an enormous amount of time.
2. It minimized the wood lost in the process of placing a single straight edge on each piece. I simply placed the tack down on each piece of rough sawn lumber and clamped it down after adjusting so the cut would remove the minimal amount of wood over the entire length of the piece.
3. The edge of the cut was smooth (no saw marks) and straighter than could be accomplished over the shorter horizontal surface area of the jointer table.
4. The cut edge was as smooth as you would expect coming out of the jointer milling process.
I highly recommend this tool for all wood workers.
Really impressed with the quality and ease of use/functionality. Need to build out the garage shop and until I have the some of the equipment installed, I need to use all portable equipment. The truetrac system is easy and accurate. Great purchase. I think i will add a couple of more pieces.
I had to cut down some 4x8 siding panels and using the extension along with my existing 24" Pro-Series track worked great! Made nice straight cuts and was much faster than trying to cut it free-hand. Well worth the money.
