    I am getting spoiled

    I am now using the EZ Smart saw guide system to cut all my laminate. I do use the table-saw & laminate trimmer to trim the laminate after it is glued to the doors I am recovering.

    This has taken all the real work out of the operation. With my small shop I go outside & EZ cut the 5'x12' laminate to a length just a bit longer than the doors across the 5' width of the laminate & take it into the shop & cut as needed with the EZ on top a 10" wide strip of AC plywood to the width needed. This leaves my table-saw free to trim the beveled edges & then onto the laminate trimmer to do the ends of the doors.

    I cut up all the laminate for all the door & drawer fronts for a kitchen in a 2 bedroom apartment in a little over an hour 20 doors & 5 drawers & only 5 little pieces left over none big enough to do anything in a kitchen or bath.

    Bart,

    I used my Festool setup to cut laminate for my computer loft desk and side table. The guided saw systems really work well, don't they! I would imagine you'll find so many uses for your EZ system in the property management work you do.

    Bart,

    What blade do you use when you cut laminate? I am really close to buying the 114 inch system. I have one tiny hurdle - I haven't talked to SWMBO yet.
    To buy it, I was $100 short, so am selling 5000 primers for shotgun shells that I used to use for reloading. I used to be into shooting skeet and trap, but I had to give up either shooting or wood working, so I gave up shooting. I have quite a bit of reloading stuff left.

    That's not spolied. Its proper use of the proper tools. Well done and congrats on all the good feelings from things going as they should.
