Looks like the aluminum sawgaurd is at least a sure way to go as they had a sheet for using it on the MarkVII. Click to download pdf. Good thing, I already got one. Still don't know if a plastic one would work. But I doubt it without some modifictaion. They may have the output in line with the post, or more problematic, part of them was designed to mount on the angled/offset trunnion of a MarkV so it would really have to be kludged to mount on a straight MarkVII trunnion assembly. [edit] I believe this trunnion mounting part would also have to be removed to put the table in Shaper mode as it would interfere with the underside of the table when it was tilted that way. On a MarkV the table doesn't tilt in the direction to 90 degrees so it's never an issue. [/edit]

Hi Bob, noticed you had a problem with your machine not starting, until you had to hand assist it. I had the same problem on my Mark V clone. I confirmed the starting capacitor was OK; ended up taking it to an electric motor technician. He troubleshot and discovered an open start winding. I got a complete headstock from Ebay, as I was pressed for time. I will eventually get my old motor rebuilt, and make a 'shorty' machine. So if you continue having start problems, you might consider the route I went. Having a 'shorty', allows having the bandsaw on the left & the scrollsaw, etc. on the right.
