I am building some cabinets and need to cut a few (10) 4×8 sheets of plywood. Usually I have someone come over and help me, but that is no longer an option. I looked into several infeed systems but decided to build my own with some material that I had laying around.

Basically, it is similar to the Ezee Feed system. There is a rail that hands below the fence rail, an on this hangs brackets that support one end of the infeed table. Below are some pictures of the rail and the sliding bracket that I came up with. I basically used some L channel aluminum with some UHMW polyethylene strips to help it slide a little better.

The table should be a simple build. I ordered some transfer balls for the table. I will post updates and then a video of it in action once it is completed.
