Background to others- I had been looking for one for over 2 years now. When I bought the new saw, I was still looking. All that I looked at, ended up being $500-$1000...
This one was actually for another panel saw. The vender had never sold any. I had the vendor contact the manufacturer to see if they would sell it as a kit. They did. It was $308.
I got a bracket made for my laser guide (pic attached). Now that I got that one mounted... Now I remember why I stopped using that one. It uses 3 L44 button batteries, goes through a lot of them and those batteries don't do well with the cold.
I'm going to take that mount and adapt the 110 volt laser guide that I picked up as a spare for my SCMS. I figure I can put a switch box for it on the overhead arm. Then I won't have to worry about batteries anymore.
A laser guide is not in anyway exact, but is a good quick reference for setups.
