woodnthings· where's my table saw?
I disagree. The piece underneath is the carrier support, like a sled. You don't want to "hang the workpiece" by a screw on the just back because the downward force of the teeth may cause it to vibrate and KABLOOEY, the entire thing will self destruct. The sled will end up with two saw kerfs on either side of the ball as shown by the red lines.I htink you could do that with just the left end of the "L" extended to either side of the work piece enough to hold onto and keep it level; maybe 3" ech side. You don't need the piece underneath.
