Looks like the slider works from the back of the saw. Is that the case? The handle for the fence is on the opposite side as what I would consider the fence part of the slider. Can you elaborate?

NICE! I stayed up late last night trying out a design in SolidWorks for the same setup on my Porter-Cable saw. I would love to see a bunch of pics showing the sliding option you took. Thanks for a little inspiration.

Awesome looking saw. I went to the video link, but couldn’t get it to work. Great job.

That is a really clever use of linear bearings. It never occurred to me to use c-channel sections as support for the linear rails. Very impressive.
In the second picture, it looks like your crosscut fence is also on a linear rail? Not sure what the 3rd picture is showing.

djwong, the 3rd pic is the crosscut fence pivoted down out of the way for ripping. the second pic is the crosscut fence pivoted up for crosscutting. the max crosscut is 36 inches x 8ft . so at 36 inches the fence stops and will flip down on the linear bearing and pivot out of the way so i can rip 4×8 sheets if needed.

That’s one heck of a “home made” job. Very well built. Thanks for sharing

Wow, that’s an awesome sliding table. That must make your saw so much more versatile. The video you posted on your other saw is not working. Could you re-post the video or more pictures of the build?How much did is cost to build the sliding table?

ok julian i will re post the video here. cost to build with time and materials was about 15 grand, it was more of an experiment and i way over built it but now that i got the fabrication down i could knock off about 10 grand lol. the saw itself is a 1972 right tilt and i completely restored it and blanchard ground the top.
