Thanks for sharing that video, Farrout. I’m just wondering what the slide actually does. Does it help to push the cut piece out of the way ?

One big advantage is that there is no friction between the stock and the fence and having the handle on the slide provides better control over the feed. I think it’s a lot safer.

No problem, that’s why we put stuff here. That’s where I learned about it.
Just send me a blank check.

Great idea. I always struggle with feed rate on thin rips.
