    • I had to return the first extrusion Alan sent me because it had a slight bow to it.  The second one was arrow straight.  I love the VSCT fence.  It's a simple contraption but it works great.  I hated the little wussy knob that came with it so I swapped out the bigger teardrop one that was on my Biese clone.
    • Pug I had the Earlex 5500 and it was very hard for me to get consistent results and I returned it and got the mini mite 4. The MM 4 is a huge upgrade from the 5500 and will spray GF milk paint full strength with no problem. Also the bleeder gun of the 5500 drove me nuts - it's like walking around with a hair dryer while finishing. If you like the Earlex you'll love the Mini Mite.
    • Yeah, Alan just emailed me about that.   He said it is really easy to source the necessary tubing and angle iron.  I will totally admit that I am stubborn and hate doing stuff in my shop that is not "fun".  Its my hobby and stuff like that turns it into work.   In fact, I have moved all my mechanical/DIY stuff out of my shop and into my basement for that very reason.   My dad was a pipefitter and welder, so I have access to all his metal working stuff (grinders, portabands, files, etc) but I just have no interest in getting my dainty little hands dirty, lol.  But I guess in this case it makes sense.  A production bies-style guide rail kit is like $200, which is a lot for $20 worth of steel and a couple of holes    
    • Buy some highly figured something and use the DS for milling. Keep earned. 
    • I don't work with steel tubing often but I would think it should be pretty easy to find a 5 foot section of tubing plenty flat enough for the front rails.  Mike to answer your question, a friend has 2 of them.  One on the saw, one on the router side of his "island". It is a great feel how easy it locks down and how secure it is.  I will have to build the rails also. My stock k2 fence is kind of wonky so I look forward to upgrading but haven't yet.
