Gary Garoutte: I can't wait to see the detailed instructions for this. It is something I
have always wanted. By the way, I believe you put out the best videos on
how you build your products than any I have ever seen. Thanks for being so
AskWoodMan: You know it will be detailed ;)
AskWoodMan: I have a full series shot and partially edited on this build, including the
mistakes and corrections I made. It is on my list to get done. Thanks for
watching and for the interest to see details. Keep in touch. Allan
alw1403: Do you sell the aluminum extrusion or where can it be ordered from?
mattygee5000: How long bearing slides did you use? Thx- M
AskWoodMan: I think it is just THK Bearing from Japan. Just Google and you will know
more than you want ;) Another brand is Hiwin from Taiwan. These linear
bearing are used in a wide range of manufacturing and industry. I will
check out A-Line. We have been mostly working with 80/20. Thanks for
mick walker: Looks good, cant wait to see the detailed series
Tayler Made: my sliding table is about the same distance from the blade as yours. for
most things i use the mitre square in the table track. when i need to do
larger pieces i slot the mitre gauge into the sliding table. i do
understand the space limitations as i think my shop is even smaller than
yours lol. we just have to be very creative with what we have.
Eric Wexler: which bearing, ball, cross-roller, etc?? Could you give the model numbers
David Borch: seems like a great idea, can't wait to she it in action,
AskWoodMan: My setup is quite a bit further from the blade versus a Euro saw. But I was
not willing to drop my extension wing on the left. One of the reason I have
resisted using it more is that in my small shop to leave the fence on the
sliding table restricts my movement. I am scheming on how to make the fence
fold parallel to the sliding table and lock back in place with stops and a
duncang55: Man, waiting to see the series but also some of what it can do! :)
AskWoodMan: I will cover every aspect of designing and building this. The only way I
know how to do it :) There will be some interesting stuff about steel
fabrication and using the linear glide bearings. What I am really going to
stress is the power of the extrusions to make things for our shops. Thanks
for the generous comment. Allan
Bowcase: Anxious to see the series. Keep thinking. You've got some great ideas up
TheBranko15: would be nice to see more details os the material that you used and a video
how to put together
Tayler Made: great to see some more video's appearing out of your shop. i learnt on an
old wadkin sliding table saw, so that was one of the prerequisites when i
bought my own table saw. believe me once you get used to it you will love
it, especially for cutting large pieces like cupboard doors etc.
George Cooper Jr.: Check out A-Line Corporation for t-track aluminum extrusions. They're outta
Charlotte, NC. I'm still wretsling w/ "THK"... What's that abbreviated for?
Thanks in advance.
AskWoodMan: Check out 80/20. The variety of extrusions they carry will make you dizzy.
