The other day, I needed to clean up rough edges on 4' boards. Rather than use a carrier strip requiring extra steps to install/remove double-sided tape, I clamped an 8' length of 2"x2" angle aluminum onto my fence over a 1/4" spacer to lift it off the table saw slightly. This gave me an 8' long fence that the rough boards could ride against... a charm. Quick work of all the boards -- even with resetting the fence position for different board widths.
