    Kracker,

    The coolant system in the pic came from Harbor Freight also (now discontinued). The pump itself did not last very long and I am now using a Little Giant pond pump but still using the same resivoir and plumbing from HF.

    Motor casings look different is all I am saying, also if you look at online manuals. I was thinking of getting on of these too but I have my doubts with the ability to actually set it up to cut a true 90 in the blade plane. Seems you can only true them through force on the blade which is not the correct way to get this done as it will ware guide bearings and shorten the life of the blade.

    Yha bad unchecked auto spell checker.

    Hey guys, I definitely don't want to take credit for someone else's work. The one in the pic is not mine. Here's a link that tells about them:

    I have a similar set up, but not quite as nice as this. I use mine free hand 99.9% of the time.

    Sorry to keep reposting this huge pic, but I edited the one below so you could see the mounting holes. There are two 10-24 or smaller screws that normally hold a blade guide/rest onto the saw. If you remove it you have a nice flat surface to put the plate up against. I only use these two holes, the one in the pic I believe has three. I'd have to look at my saw, but the third one may have been tapped by the owner into the saw housing. Take a look and you will see the countersunk screw heads:
