Well, this just shot to the top of my wishlist. I’ve for at least 6 years now been specifically wishing for a really accurate, really quiet way to cut wood in my house after hours, when I can’t run power tools due to neighbors close by here in crowded LA.
Scroll to the bottom to watch the video, or watch it on YouTube in higher quality.
It’s a bit crazy-priced right now at ~$1200, but I’m sure that’ll come down. For now, I’m dreaming of a few additions to it already. I’d love something like the Incra FlipStop Fence, but raised up about 2” so the blade can always pass under it. The sacrificial material would be beneath the fence with the super accurate and repeatable flip stop riding above it. This would allow for setting the fence’s teeth and ruler once up front, and later changing out the sacrificial material without having to change it. I’d also like the material area to be open on each side so a longer piece of material could be fed in from one side and continually slid over as it got eaten up. You’d be able to take a 2’ length of wood and use every 1/8” of it as sacrificial surface, then flip it over to use the opposite side. Something like toggle clamps could hold it against the fence and base securely to make sliding it over at any point trivial.
Oh, and I also would add miter gauge abilities as seen in the Incra Jig Miter Gauge 1000HD, which has 180° of positive stops, and a vernier scale for 1/10° stops between those. A setup as described above would allow for the most flawless, and quietest work ever. I could crank out perfect segmented bowl pieces while watching TV in the living room (wooden floors are easy to vacuum!).
