Have a link?  Interested in more info, but could not find it on Cook's website.

I understand Steve (ladylake) called and ask about it. I think its not ready to sell yet, maybe wrong. But they need to raise the height on the machine. It will not go up near what it will cut wide. Sure will be nice when they get it right if they haven't yet.

 The one in the first vid would only go 31" above the deck but it was a prototype ,  58" above sounds great, no thick slabs.  Steve
