    Magna-Matic,

    Thanks for considering an optional platform. If you need someone to demo one, and provide feedback please let me know. I would even be willing to purchase the demo unit.

    I sure hope you do follow through with it, as I know many people which use these blades and it will definately make a difference.

    Thanks
    Jim

    i have been experiencing the exact problem with my mag 9000.

    i would also be willing to demo/purchase the prototype.

    thanks for your heads up to Gerd.

    The mag 9000 beats anything I've ever used to sharpen blades. Having the majority of the blade remain on a flat surface can only make it better. I'd be interested in a larger platform.

    Gerd,

    I too would be interested in an extension platform for my Magna-Matic 9000. Based off of the current Magna-Matic 9000 design, a modified base would appear to be easy to retrofit to the current base mounts. It would definatly support an additional 3-4 inches of Lexan base material. Given the stout nature of the Magna-Matic's housing, I would guess you could mount a diving board sized run-out table off the existing mount points. (I guess that might be a little excessive?) Just applauding the overall design and workmanship of the original Magna-Matic products. Thanks for considering the optional platform disign.

    I am sure the engineers at Magna-Matic are more than capable of designing a decent extension platform. If the current "plastic" material is too soft they could always use a thinner piece of "plastic" and put an 1/8" steel plate under it.

    Hello All,

    Due to the quick response of a few ppl who expressed the need of a larger worktable, we have begun prototyping one.

    We hope to be able to bring it "to market" in 2-3 weeks.

    We are already looking at 2-3 different design possiblities.

    Thank you again for the feedback, and request for this accessory.

    I will keep you posted here on its development.

    Thank you,

    Gerd,

    Too bad the government didn't operate like your company!
