And could it work the way "Dino" claims?

stumbled across this 'system' here...
To me, it seems like the sawboard I made a looong time ago would do
exactly the same thing--and it didn't cost me a thing because I used
scrap wood. (Well, maybe the glue but I waste more on a lot of
prjects than I used on this.)
I didn't know if I was looking at the whole thing wrong or not but is
looks like it's as silly as I thought it was!
We have always called them a zero board onna count of that's
the distance you offset it from the line you want to
We always ho-made ours but I suppose spending money on one
would help someone's economy.
I find that it works OK -- got it at a show in Balt. for some "deep
discount" (maybe 35-4-% off what he lists). The guy is a character. I got
it because I have found that I have trouble keeping my saw (and router)
tight to whatever guide I have tried using. I don't know/do enough to
acquire the right technique. This thing provides a track, so more
idiot-proof, which somehow I find is a good thing for me. Once I build a
panel cutting table, like this one,
http://www.thewoodshop.20m.com/panel_cutting_table.htm , I think I'll have a
darn good panel saw setup.
It is _akin_ to the Festool guide rail system.
As for the anti-chip abilities, cannot really say as I need a new saw. But
it did seems to cut down on chipping. HTH. -- Igor
