« Part 2: Saw bow Part 3 of (Workbench) Chevalet series Part 4: Stand(ard) »

I started building a chevalet. I want to thank Paul (aka shipwright) and Mike for their help. Downloaded the Sketch up drawing made by Paul.

Below some pictures of making the chevalet gliding system.

Thanks for watching

That’s an interesting approach to the bearings Jan. I hope they work for you. Alignment is everything, that’s why I switched to the cheap self aligning Igus bearings. It is essential that this part of the chevalet is really free moving with no effort. As I said, I hope this works for you. :-)

I works great Paul. I have made an alligment. Put some WD40 on the tube and is really free moving without effort. It also has a small (with mean non) tolerance and it’s very sturdy. Practice will learn more, but till now I’m satisfied,

Your build seems to be the same thoughtful and attention to detail process you are known for Jan and your bearings are certainly innovative. I too will be interested to see how they work in the long run. My optimistic guess is that they will be fine, as I know that the cutting board material works a lot like lubrication.
