Mounting the collins coping foot on the trion

I know quite a few of you have this accessory...how many parts and shims did you use?

Hi,

   Sorry I don't have the Collin's for my Trion so I can't help directly. Maybe posting some pictures of your install would help generate feedback?

 With the CollinsFoot you'll get to use your saw upside down.  It's a little daunting at first but you'll pick it up quickly. Sometimes I'll use mine upside down with a regular foot when I'm cutting sheet goods and such.

I hope you bought the barrel version.

Here's some photos of mine. Per a previous post, you run this upside-down. Takes a bit of practice. I mounted mine and backed it in close to the blade. Note I used a spacer to tilt the shoe a bit so the blade wasn't too far out in front of the nose of the shoe.

Thanks guys. I just couldn't figuer out if any of the extra spacers (other than the small one to tilt it) were supposed to be used as it seems like shoe presses on some of the parts at the front of the saw.
