I decided to start a new thread because the other one is getting confusing with all the double post and picture.

Once you get all set up to run your panels (with your new continuous fence) you want to run all you panels on the same setup (general more consistent product . You mentioned doing 2 setup because of the short narrow panels. I made short video of how you can run those on the same setup.

Make your self a nice big push block.

Click in the link to start video. In the bottom right corner of the video is a place to make the video larger.

Now lets talk about safety . Always cover the cutter with some kind of gaurd to protect you hands in case of a slip.

Excellent! Thank you! I see where the continuous fence eliminates the cutter drawing the piece into the cutter. Thanks for taking the trouble! Simple but effective. Was wondering what I was going to do with all the extra pushblocks I have laying around now I know!
Happy New Year!

Waiting on an aluminum strip to build the fence. Anxious to give it a run

Finally got the aluminum strip screwed to the auxiliary fence. I drum sanded a hollow at the arbor location to allow the cutter to protrude far enough front to go e me at least a 1/4” edge to insert in my stiles. There’s approx 3/16 – 1/4” of aluminum thickness at the thinnest part of the “hollow”. Feels strong enough I believe. I’ll send a pic shortly.

The aluminum rail is slightly proud of the wood fence.

i opted to run the cutter thru the fence to maintain the majority of the wood. Anxious to take it for a ride!

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

Here’s a short video in action… Works great but I think I like the handle on an angle on the push block so I’ll change that!
