    Honolulu,, Hi.

    For those of you wondering about what I cut on and it falling apart. You can see the saw cuts are clean . No worries about it making a mess .

    Very nice, I don’t see any mess.

    i may have to switch to that when i cut with my track saw, the foam won’t gum up the blade at all?

    After seeing the picture it looks like a really good idea. I may pick up a sheet.

    That’s what I was thinking although they really do last a lot longer than I initially thought. I was told when I bought it that the sacrificial strips last in a contractor usage situation one to two years. But I’ve found out since it tends to be longer.

    It’s nice when things are under estimated and last longer than expected.

    Whoa, I did not expect the cuts to be that clean – especially in the places where the cuts overlap. That is a perfect and easy solution… can you use your mft top with any dogs still?

    That is real nice really. Just lay the sheet on the floor and it will support the whole work piece. Really is a nice inexpensive solution.

    Yep I can second what Jerry has said. We have cut on foam for any finished or nice materials for a while now. It actually helps the dust collection on the saw work better and we don’t worry about scratches on the backside of whatever we are cutting. It doesn’t gum the blade because you are just scoring the foam…if your blade depth is set correctly.

    Pretty much sums it up , you just want to cut through whatever it is your cutting . Cuts in the foam are maybe 1/16″ deep if that .

    Not sure I understand this question . The holes in my top are 20mm , I didn’t do a good job of laying the holes out in my top so I don’t use them as 90* reference points . Basically just holes to run clamps up through to clamp work down .

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    if your blade depth is set correctly.

    This is the part I find to be the hard part, The depth gauge is in french.

    I don’t get that. Isn’t it just numbers?

    If it is in French, myself, and I know others here can translate it for you if you like.

    Most of us here in Hawaii do American not french.

    This is looking like a better idea all the time. I need to go buy a sheet of foam.

    But what’s French on it? That’s what I don’t understand?

    Just guessing, I could be wrong,

    Personally I prefer the standard measures, not the metric

    #514594

    Wouldn’t be too hard to just set the scale close, I use 6mm approximating to 1/4″ to set the plunge depth on my MT55cc before fine adjusting it against the material.

    No, I think you’re right. Where I say ‘it’s Greek to me’, being half French, others use ‘French’ to denote the same thing. It just didn’t click with me.

    So do I. Never got used to metric for woodworking/construction. I endure and convert all the time. PITA frankly!

    It’s the french numbering system. The french came up with that system ,,right.
