Picked up a set of mft dogs that a very kind member had made for me by an engineer friend of his. They will work well with the tsystand for cross cutting small items :)
nice idea Chris, have you got any pictures?

I made one of Rogier's T-systands this spring for when i am doing marine woodworking and i must say it is very useful when working in a small space and have to carry everything down a dock.

Mine is not as nice as the ones that he makes but with the shipping to the states it was to expensive ( i am quite cheap ). I kind of feel bad that he is not getting compensated for his idea and also for me using the pictures he posted to make mine so i would like to thank him for his great idea.

I'm glad the concept worked out for you. I wonder how longit took you to make one, and what materials you used.
would love to see the results.

I made it from maple plywood and it took a while looking at the pictures and about 3 hours to build with most of that time figuring out how to make it latch properly. I left out the hand hole and the groove because i did not think i would use either one. As you can see in the photos that it fits nice and tight and it worked great the couple of times that i used it.

Here you go here's the set up I was thinking of for cross cutting. These are the dogs a member kindly had made for me :)

I've not run a saw on it yet to try it and I was thinking of making a wider sacrificial top. The top then will have a kerf mark in it to help alignment.

The dogs are just clamped down with m8 bolts and wing nuts. This works well on the tsystand but the rebated sections on the sys mft ,where the feet clip in make the mdf thinner so another dog is needed where the 19.9mm section is slightly shorter. I've got 4 dogs and one dog is shorter to allow for fixing in the thinner sysmft. Hope that makes sense.

Im really enjoying this thread,

I have been looking at this idea for quite a while now but haven't really found the job where I really NEED such an attachment.
I am toying with the idea of the cut out for the jigsaw underneath in addition.
I really like the idea of the dogs and the rail it expands the possibilities even more.
With a removable/exchangeable top it would be the tops.

Thanks everyone for their contributions, keep them coming.

that's a beautiful piece of counterfeit. Why did you use an alternative grid with the holes, any specific reason?
You did not really deviate from my original design, have you got any suggestions for design improvement though?

Looking good Chris. Not sure if dogs are the way to go here, there's not as many positioning possibilities as on a MFT. Maybe a fixed jig is the better option here. just a thought.

Pip, if you want a T-systand with a replaceable top, it would be possible. The top will be screwed on in stead of being glued. one extra top complementary.

I don't have an mft and don't plan on getting one any time soon and i also don't have the clamping elements or any dogs so when i made the grid i just spaced the holes so i could use the rail clamps, so for me the spacing really was not important.

I am glad that you like it and no i did not change much except for the things i already mentioned. As far as design improvement i can't see anything that could improve on the design that you already have, i feel that your design is the most useful and durable, that is why i copied it.

I used it this morning on a small job that i was doing and it came in very handy, for the same task in the past i would either have dragged my miter saw stand out of my trailer to use as a bench or fought with the piece trying to balance it on the trailer floor, so thanks again for sharing your ideas.
