The Handibot Accessory Base is a frame on which a Handibot can be mounted. A plastic "T-Slot" plate is inserted into the base of the frame and locked in place using two toggle clamps. To this plate, the user can attach any accessories that he might attach to a regular desk-top aluminum deck. This product is designed to fit the 3 inch indexer along with a number of future accesories. The plate can be indexed in four inch increments, allowing the user to tile their cut files and extend the Y-axis reach of their handibot. The sides of the frame are covered in acrylic "plexiglass" and one side is removable for access to the jig or materials inside the frame. The front and back of the frame are covered by vinyl brushes mounted to a plastic frame that can be easily removed--these prevent chips and dust from escaping during cutting. A 3 inch indexer mounted to this base can accomodate material up to 12 inches long.

Note: Kickstarter Backers and Early Adopters that purchase this jig will be provided with (at no additional cost) a new baseplate, base pad, Y anti backlash nut bracket, and blue pointer to bring their tool up to the latest specs. The installation of these parts will make the earlier tools compatible with this jig.
Prepare your tool for accessories and expand your Handibot's capabilities. The accessory base and enclosure mounts to the base plate of your Handibot and allows the attachement of accessories such as the Handibot Rotary Axis. The accessory base holds a "T-slot" tray that allows for the use of material holding strategies such as vises and setup clamps. Manual clamps hold the T-slot tray in place and allow material to be indexed in 4" increments making cuts longer than the Handibot's 8" Y-range possible. The Rotary Axis is sold separately.
