Looks good, I used a 1 thick piece oak for my fence and believe that gave me a littler more material left after I dished out for the spindle. I m sure yours will be fine. Now as long as your aluminum strip is straight and you make some kind of guard to protect your hands in case of a slip you should be good to go. After set up remember to check every thing to make sure it secure before you hit the on button.

Remember to be careful when setting up that the knifes on you cutter are very close to the aluminum bar so start a bit high and move down just until the panel edge with fit in to to sticking slot.

Let us know how it all works out. Safety First

Thank you for the safety concerns.. My son-in-law thinks I work for OSHA I m so fanatical about safety. Hey I may desire to learn to play piano one day soon right. Yes there s about 1/16” above the aluminum strip and I kept the closest mounting screws a safe distance. Worst case of there s a slip, the aluminum shouldn t hurt the carbide cutter but that s not my plan to run it into it.
I clamped the fence to my jointed bed then clamped the aluminum strip to the fence whilst I drilled and mounted the strip. Once clamped to the shaper fence it s spot on.

I’ll be using the power feed for the li,g sides and no doubt a large push block for the short sides as you did. I have an orange polycarbonate guard for above the cutter but I’ll need to jog out a little of the fence to accomodate that
