The new Universal Fence Stop from FastCap minimizes moving parts and adjustments for a simpler, more durable and more versatile design. Instead of complicated threaded adjusters, the Universal Fence Stop uses a single sacrificial board as the stop. Just set the indicator to zero and cut through the board to calibrate the stop. If after a blade change you need to recalibrate, it is just as easy. Simply zip out the screw, nudge the board toward the blade, drive the screw back in and cut through the board. As if that weren't enough, the stop is also universal and can be used on either side of the saw blade with all the same benefits. Use on the left or right side of the bladeStop flips up when not needed, then back down without losing your measurementFast, easy, incredibly accurate calibrationSince the stop extends onto the base of your saw, you can easily cut short lengths without having to use an extenderFor use with FastCap Best Fence Extrusions (sold separately)
True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple. Prolonged exposure darkens wood to a dark-purplish brown or dark brown, but the original color can be preserved with a UV inhibitor. Color variation among boards is reported to be moderate to high. Presence of minerals in some boards may cause uneven coloration and steaming is reported to affect the color. Light & Air-Induced Changes: Treatment against the effects of ultra-violet rays maintainss the original color of the wood. Treatment with Armorall, the car finish product, under lacquer is reported to hold the color well.Grain: Typically straight, occasionally wavy or irregular.Texture: Medium to fine.Luster: Medium to high.Movement: Very dimensionally stable.Natural Durability: Highly resistant to attack by decay fungi, very resistant to dry-wood termites, and somewhat resistant to attack by marine borers. Also reported to be resistant to chemicals such as acids.Cutting Resistance: Purpleheart is moderately difficult to saw. Tools usually require frequent sharpening. A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high. It does not mar or dent easily, and is very heavy and dense.
When used on your EZSmart Guide Rail, the Super Smart Routing Kit lets you make perfectly straight cuts along two axes-X and Y-and is also adjustable along the vertical Z axis. Cut straight, uniform fluted columns, long, clean dado cuts, precise sliding dovetails, repeatable mortise and tenon joints, even sweeping arcs, all while securely straddling your precision guide rail. The Super Smart Routing Kit guides your router parallel to the track (the X-axis) and can accept optional limit stops for repeat work. The same applies for work perpendicular to the track (the Y-axis), where the Routing Kit employs it's own section of track to guide the router. The height of the router (Z-axis) is also adjustable, enabling the operator to rout in multiple planes. Made in USA. Unique track width adjustment allows this tool to work with multiple track saw systems!Now compatible with Makita Track Saw SystemsRouter and EZ Guide Rail are sold separately.Control the router as you move in any axis, along with precision, versatility, and safety in a new patented designCut flutes, rabbets, dados, and mortises with smooth-sliding ease
This thin kerf industrial blade provides a superior finish cut with sliding compound miter saws. The 5° negative hook angle helps prevent the blade from being too aggressive and pushes the work piece down and towards the fence. Thin kerf blades remove less material than standard carbide blades, thus requiring less horsepower to produce equally good results.The Perma-SHIELD coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.Also available with the economical Silver I.C.E coating.
