Shawn, Great slider. I’ve got an incra sled that someone gave me that I am going to convert into a slider. Did you just cut or bend the stops on the drawer slides to join them end to end? Could you post a couple of pics showing a close up of the slides. Having had your sled in use for a while, would you do anything different?

olrac, I will have to take a look for my photos on this project. Last September there was a fire in the house where my shop was. So I no longer have the sliding table or the saw for that matter. I didn’t need to remove the tabs because I epoxied two slides together, an “upper” slide and a “lower” slide. I will take a look for some photos for you. As I used it I found I needed to place a piece of material between the slides to help stop a little bit of lateral movement of the slides. If I where to build it again, I would as many slides as I could fit, so with my last build I could have fit three comfortably and I should have used three. I think the slide that I had on the side helped a bit for lateral shift, but did more for supporting the vertical weight when the table was pulled back. One thing I knew when I set it up and tried to be as careful and precise as I could is; the table NEEDS to run parallel to the blade or it will never work right. So before you get too involved make sure your miter slots are lined up because these are the easiest way to line up the sliding table to make sure it is parallel when installing it.

Have your say...
