The cross spall and diagonal braces slide into the pockets in the middle layer of the mold. Once the two sides are laid out and lined up, the cross spall and diagonal braces are glued and screwed in as well. They seem pretty solid =) With the big saw we can leave all 6 layers together and slice them out in one shot. It's pretty awesome
The VFD is great, the saw starts and stops very smoothly and slowly. Being able to push a button and slowly adjust the speed up or down and to have 6 predetermined speeds I can select is amazing. Totally worth the $400 it cost to set up.
