Thanks for all the extra advice. I have already memorized the user manual, but it really doesn't tell me enough.

I'm hoping that this is the one and only finesse project I attempt on this beast. It's not my bag. Next time I have the contractor over, I'll ask him to check out the saw. It's only about 2 years old.

I had already created a couple of treads with the 1" appendix. Today I created a couple with larger pieces. I found that using the clamps as spreaders was easier for me. I have the nose of the tread against a back wall, and a cleat screwed down into my workbench about 6" away from the back of the tread. The clamps convert easily to spreaders, effectively pushing the tread against the back wall. Seems to have worked.

Thankss for all of the input. Any other suggestions are welcome.
