I picked up a used tablesaw with a Unifence at an Estate sale last fall and the Unifence had this hard plastic foot that slid across the top of the saw. It always got some grit under it and it had started to leave some scratches on the tablesaw top.
I spent a little time, maybe an hour of my time. some scrap maple, old bearings and bolts from some roller blades and another random bolt I had in my bin and threw this together.
It works surprisingly well. I can easily slide the fence now without any problems and I spaced the bearings far enough apart that it will glide over the miter slots without falling in.
As with most of my projects, I also posted a video of it if your interested.
