    Sometimes the simplest solutions are best but hard to think of.

    I'm going to try the same tomorrow. I hate moving it all the time as I change holes.

          Rob that's a good idea and I'm genna give it a go when I can get back in the shop.

          I wonder why no one makes them like that.

            Neat idea. I have to see if I can do that with the Delta. The Hawk doesn't seem to have a problem staying in place.

It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....
