That is very interesting and very well engineered. There are many ways to solve a problem, this one is surely the most well thought through. Your brain was firing on all cylinders for sure.

I certainly applaud your engineering and execution but I’m way too lazy for that.

agree with the others. Nice engineering feat. I like the design, now how long before WoodPeckers brings it out as one of their one times? ;)

I’m not getting all the hold down and stop blocks.

“Constructive Criticism”
Why not add some dowel and/or threaded rod out the bottom of the main black blocks that would go into all the holes drilled then fasten them from the bottom so that the black block wouldn’t lean back when tightening.
You would only need holes in the X pattern, no need for any more.

Kind of cool though!

Very well done.

This should be an excellent tool when the design finally get all the tweaks.

I know my designs end up better after 3 or 4 tries and some more tweaking.

Thanks for the ideas- here is a pic of the original but it will not work with “rectangles”. Jay’s post gave some thought- I don’t want to have to work “under” the table top. I’ve spent hours in the past trying to figure out a hole pattern for Jay’s idea to work- regarding the back stop and “hole pattern layout”, again thanks for looking.

Another idea for you.

EDIT: I didn’t think it through. It would still have to be locked down somehow.

I like it! this would be practicle for the square but for the rectangle the upper part of the black tower would have be able to move tranversely to set it to the corners of the rectangle- thanks
I really appreciate your efforts but trust me the geomenty has been a challenge.

”I really appreciate your efforts but trust me the geometry has been a challenge.”

No problem, I’m just playing with sketchup. Slow day today with not much else to do.

Last one I promise. lol
Think swivel heads and arms for the rectangles or squares.

it would not have to be locked down. Once it hits the “backstop”, force from the clamp screws to the box ends would barely move it upward, stopped by the t track upper shoulder- Its all physics.
