Thanks for posting this.  Looks like a good product at a very good price.Do you know what the hole size and spacing is?  On their website  there  is no indication of this.

Side Extension Table for MW 1000. I could not justify the whole MW 1000 Mobile Workshop Set.

I am finding it more useful in my modest-sized workshop than I expected. For example; instant in-feed support for the CMS router table; instant support for long work piece. Looking forward to trying out an internal corner in which to clamp tricky MFS setups.

What happens if you just kiss the end of the tongue with a cut to shorten it?
Still have a gap after that?,,, [scratch chin]

I'll break out a shooting board and see if that helps any.  Seems like that shouldn't be happening, though. if anything I'd expect a tiny gap between the end grain of the tenon and the bottom of the groove.

I would also try tapping the fence back just a bit so you can make sure that your fence adjustment is not impeding the bearing / bit from making a full depth groove.

At the moment, the fence and bearing face are completely in the same plane. I'm not sure how I would accomplish what you're talking about without some issues doing the cope cuts. 

I use a push block that rides against the fence to support those cuts and back them up from blow out.  If the bearing was running proud of the fence, it seems like I'd run into an issue at the beginning and end of the cut.

That 'looks' like it should pull up - is it a consistent gap all round, cause it looks like it in the pics?

I think there is a shadow around the tenon, as the tenon is actually pressed up to the back of the groove.  There is more gap around the profile than the tenon and groove.

If I clamp it with some pressure, I can get it pretty close to tight on the face, but the back will open up and it would probably be out of plane.

Purely conjecture on my part Edward, however if your mains breaker isn’t cutting out and it’s always the breaker on the Dewalt, I’d scrutinize the Dewalt breaker first. Breakers and GFCI’s are a pretty temperamental lot. I love 💕 breakers yet I hate breakers. They all “wear out” at some time.

I have the same setup and if you did the change over to the Shelix cutter, I’m confident you’ll be able to easily swap out breakers.

I signed up on the website and got an emailed response.  You might check your spam filter. Sounds like they might be a ways out from production.
