Colliflower Perpetual Zero-Clearance Products

Zero-clearance is critically important for many reasons, so it's a wonder why virtually all table saw and miter saw throat and kerf plates come with either no zero-clearance or soon-to-be-gone zero-clearance. There's one solution to this problem which will last the life of the saw: replaceable zero-clearance.

My unique design allows you (the saw owner) to simply slip in and slip out a replaceable zero-clearance insert. Each time a new ZC insert is slipped into the anodized aluminum plate, it's as if you bought a brand new plate--fresh and perfect zero-clearance for every angle, kerf, or dado application. Don't buy a brand new plate at top expense--simply replace the inexpensive insert! At Colliflower, LLC, our motto is: "Make it Better."

Set-Up Stick w/ Tippy Clamps™

(aka Lock-Jaw Track System)

Lock-Jaw Track System™ is a patent-pending clamping system made to reduce costs, increase productivity and take the headache out of set-ups and limited clamping—in both the metal- and wood-working worlds. It is the clamp that every machinist has been waiting for.

--Save money by means of using one adjustable clamping system for multiple jobs.

--Reduce set-up times by using one fixture for different jobs, keeping the proven offsets or adjusting by dependable increments.

--Reduce waste and increase space by limiting number of fixtures needed.

--Increase productivity by easy clamp/unclamp design and by saving on set-up time.

--For use on vertical, horizontal, or 5-axis machines--or on the benchtop.

--Mount anywhere, on any surface, by simply using 8-32 screws (metal surface) or #8 wood screws (wood surface).

--For use with CNC, Manual, or Handheld applications.

Description

Lock-Jaw Track System is a clamping system which is comprised of three main parts: A Track, a Stop, and a Clamp.

The Track—made of machined 1018 steel—has a chuck-jaw-like serrated top on which the Stop moves and is fastened.  ¼-20 tapped holes run the length of the Stick for both fastening the Stop and engaging the Clamp.   0.2500” holes are two inches from either end of the Stick for locating pins (if desired).

The Stop—made of machined 1018 steel (hardened to 40 RC)—has a serrated clamping surface for a strong grip and a toothed bottom for consistent 0.2500” movements along the Stick’s toothed surface. It has “legs” which dip into the Stick’s middle slot for strength, and it sits a short 0.125” above the surface. To fasten the Stop to the Stick, simply engage the included 1/4-20 button head cap screw through the Stop and into one of the tapped holes. 

The  Clamp tips into engagement by means of its set screw backing and the its beveled screw-engagement surface, forcing a forward and downward grip that is hard to match. Since the Clamp sits on an underlying O-ring, it travels with the screw, in a forward and downward motion—and upward and away when backed out. The Clamp is also made of machined 1018 steel (hardened to 40 RC). 

Mounting the SU Stick couldn't be easier.

Mounting on Metal: Simply drill and tap 10-32 holes in a fixture or table top one-inch apart, and fasten the Stick with taper headed screws (for accurate, repeatable locating: the 82-degree of the screw head mates with the 82-degree chamfer, allowing virtually identical placement and repeatability).

Mounting on Wood: Simply screw in #10 wood screws.

(If additional mounting strength is desired, employ locating pins on the fixture or table top, and mount the Stick on the pins.)

Below-the-Surface Mounting

The Track can be mounted below the fixture/table-top surface so that only the Stop and Clamp are peaking above the fixture/table-top surface, creating a fully solid background for the work-piece--and a clutter-free, unobstructed table top.

The Tilting, Sliding Router Table with Sliding Fence

is an exciting, new product from Colliflower, LLC. This is Rev 2 of this concept. The first design opened up capabilities in the routing, and this design fine tunes them.

 

The Abilities

Here are some of the main features/capabilities:

--It is a vertical (normal) router table

--It is a horizontal router table

--It has a plunging feature (with a depth stop)

--It locks into an angled position at every 7.5 degrees

--It has a sliding fence which can slide a work piece through the bit

--It has a sliding router plate which can slide the bit through the work piece on the fence

--It can make a sliding cut in any of the 7.5 degree angles

--It can lock in any position along the track while in any of the angles (in order to slide the work piece through the bit)

--It can accommodate a board up to 21" wide

--It can tilt (and lock) not only up to 90 degrees (horizontal) but can go past by 30 degrees

--It has the pre-set angles engraved on the swivel plates in order for quick reference

--It has measurement marks for precise fence placement

--Made in USA 

The Sliding Fence

--All ball-bearing action. Super smooth and straight. Clamp and pull parts through the bit

Zero-Clearance Throat Plate Details


Superior throat plates for SawStop, DeWalt and Festool

Benefits of Replaceable zero-clearance

Expense -- There's no need to buy a brand new plate every time you want your zero-clearance back. Either buy inexpensive replaceable inserts or make them yourself. Each time an insert is replaced, you have a brand new plate.

Safety — Safety is a huge benefit of zero-clearance. Many (if not most) saw injuries are due to the work-piece being pinched into the gap between the blade and the gap of the throat plate--with a finger or two going with it. With zero-clearance, there is no gap between the blade and plate, resulting in no pinch.

Quality of Cut — With fresh, replaceable ZC, the work-piece will always be fully supported , resulting is less chip-out, blow-out and tear-out. Full zero-clearance can give you a nearly perfect cut with little to no sanding needed.

Durability — With an anodized aluminum plate, your throat and/or kerf plate will last longer than the life of the saw--and make it look good, to boot. 

Cleanliness — With a zero-clearance plate, virtually all sawdust and/or chips will be kept above the table top, meaning less clean-up below, less dust getting into the internal components of the saw, and better dust collection.

Melamine or Expanded PVC --The replaceable inserts are made of super-slick, double-sided melamine (for table saws) which allows for clean ZC and an easier push into the blade and over the throat plate. The 1/4" melamine inserts allows for extra sturdy application. Miter saw replaceable inserts are made of durable expanded PVC for indoor or outdoor use. The flexible 1/8" PVC inserts allows easy slip-in, slip-out replacement without removing the kerf plate.

How long will true zero-clearance last?

True zero-clearance can be gone in a matter of hours. Blade angle: Every change the angle of the blade on either a table or miter saw? Once multiple blade angles are used with the same insert, zero-clearance is diminished. Vibration:  No saw blade travels in a perfect rotation. In just a few hours of use, that wobble-effect will cause the ZC slot to widen, resulting in less and less zero-clearance. Blade change: Do you use different blades with different kerfs? Once a blade with a larger kerf is used, the zero-clearance slot is widened and will not be perfect for a blade with a smaller kerf. That's why inexpensive, replaceable ZC is the answer.

Benefits

  • Less expense
  • Perpetual zero-clearance
  • Built to last
  • Safety
  • Cleaner cuts
  • Less mess

 

Colliflower, LLC

(Products for Metal and Wood)

Colliflower, LLC started as a company desiring to improve the quality of table and miter saws by providing superior, replaceable zero-clearance. Out with the plastic, temporary throat/kerf plates and in with the anodized aluminum, perpetual ZC plates.

Colliflower, LLC then moved on to improving workholding and clamping in the metalworking world. Our goal was to make a clamp/fixture which would work with various sizes of material--without having to switch a fixture or clamp. We desired to keep our same proven offsets and skip the onerous process of taking off a fixture from a previous job and then dialing in the new fixture for the new job. Enter the Set-Up Stick w/ Tippy Clamps.

In summary

All in all, my anodized aluminum, replaceable zero-clearance design for saws will make a great saw even greater. 

The Set-Up Stick with Tippy Clamps can make machining easier, quicker, more profitable and...simply better.

 If you want the best performance from your tool, choose to "Make it Better".

Sincerely,


"Make it Better"
