Your bed rails are on concrete? no room under them.

What does the wood wizz use??
The Wood Wizz looked real simple.  The bed was 2x4s on the metal frame.  Then a short piece of what looked like plastic perhaps 4" wide, 1" thick (or less) and 6 or 8" long with somewhat sharpened ends.  They laid it like a brace between the 2x4 bed and the side of the slab.  Ran a screw through the middle into the 2x4 and done.
I don't think K has enough space on the sides of his slabs that he wants to process.

That makes sense.

you said you had X and Y powered what about Z? do you have to program this or do you just hold a button until it is where you want?

Just curious, before you clamp it like that, do you shim it so it will have no movement side to side?

One side is up touching the small log stops in the back. Nothing in the front. It clamps so tight that nothing moves by hand. Yet to try it running. The latching clamp is good for 850lbs locking.

X, Y. Z all done with switches. Both toggle and jog switches.

I am really surprised after you put the bit in you didn't run it right then and there. I would not have been able to avoid doing that :)

I want to make sure I smile the first time I run it... I put to much work into it to have it not work right the first time.

KBeitz, good thing you don't live closer to me-Id have to stop in and introduce my self and then Id never get anything of mine done. I love gadgets, dohickies, whatchmacallits  and anything else custom made for a purpose-sometimes even if it doesn't have a purpose, lol
