    Old Coot on a Bike
    I saw a photo of your miter saw station on one of your posts. (I'm guessing your camera lens cost a little more than the saw!), and have a few questions.

    Is it your design? If so, do you have plans you could share?
    What is the purpose of the cutouts on the side support boxes? Just to permit clamping?
    What is the purpose of the vertical piece of wood inside the box that is closest to the camera?

    Thanks for the information. After I posted my question I remembered I recently found a pneumatic cylinder in a box of stuff my dad gave me. I think I can modify it to make it work. I am going to hop over to Ebay and look for the pedal.

    Search eBay for "4way pneumatic foot pedal" sold by Industrialsalws719.

    The rest of the stuff came from fright props.com. Look in their "pneumatic part" section. They have a good video where the guy discusses what parts are needed.

    Air hoses came from Harbor Freight.

    So I have been following your post on modifying your Kreg Jig, where did you end up sourcing your cylinder and pedal? I have been thinking about modifying my setup in a similar fashion.
