Chains to convey individual boards to the board stop, across a measuring sensor array and to an automatic adjusting fence in preparation for feeding into the Model 312-DC/SR2. Rip Navigator software uses the board dimensional information to position the automatic adjusting fence and positions the select blades on the Model 312-DC/SR2. Laser Rack mounted laser lights reference the fixed blade positions and select saw actuator mounted laser lights reference the position of the select blades, providing a visual of the rip solution on the board.
