I understand. If I go with the MFT/Kapex I'll also get the optional cross-brackets. I need to (first receive the JMP & assemble it) use it for a few projects to see how secure it needs to be anchored.

EDIT: I just checked the website, they are starting to ship in two (2) days!!!

I have received mine, but haven't begun assembly yet because I'm still waiting for the motor to arrive.

Hassle can probably help with that...

Did you order yours in this current batch? The official schedule says they will start shipping Oct. 14 -- you must have CLOUT!

After using it for a few years, I got tired of putting my foot way up on the crossmember to prevent "hop." While clearing out the studio, I came accross a perfect piece of local ash to make an auxiliary crossmember out of. It was really ugly on one side, so I chamfered it with a LN#5 and smoothed the remaining sides while I was at it. Two carriage bolts through holes drilled with CXS & a brad-point bit hold it in place.

My stand is jacked up as high as it will go, so shorter people might need a longer piece of wood.

I've often thought that it would be nice to add "feet" of some sort that you could bolt to a piece of ply. You'd still have mobility but would be able to cut away.

That's too funny: I don't even have the feet on mine! You should have let me know, Alex - you could have my feet, and bolt them onto yours!

I have my JMP sitting on an indoor-outdoor carpet that I got at Costco. It has a ridged pattern that holds the JMP feet securely, and it's big enough that I can stand on the carpet while using the JMP - it keeps everything from moving (we're all attached).
