I would cry if I did that and the casting cracked. Supporting it could be as easy as a "C" made from 2x with the opening pointing down. I have a saw with an aluminum deck and that's the only part about it I don;t like. Using Cast Iron would allow you to use any magnetic fixtures out there.
Ah, good idea. It's straight AND it addresses my OCD. I went and saw that last night too. So y'all use this without clamps then? Izzy did that and added the sandpaper disks to the bottom. I can't see a great way to get it clamped without interfering with the saw motor. I need to see if my metal by the foot place has extrusions now.
On the rip, I get that. On the crosscut a guy would still want to use a thin kerf, right? I think as busy as QSWO is, a rip would be pretty easy to hide, at least at a casual glance. (said the guy who has never done it.)
