Topic tags/keywords: table saw sled

Check out this video: https://youtu.be/w5muFPsamCE?t=3m27s

They’ve removed the table part of their table saw and have replaced it with what appears to be an attached sled? I’ve never seen such a thing. Can someone shed some insight into what that thing is, and more specifically the make/model of the one in this video?

Thanks!

It’s a sliding table saw, or a sliding attachment for a table saw. They usually come on high end cabinet machines, pricey and very big

Sawstop offers a sliding miter table like that. Its a $1k add on.

That one looks similar to an Excalibur (after-market add-on to almost any table saw)

From the blade guard design i am guessing a SCM or their sister company MiniMax but could be wrong.
Sliding table saws are the norm in workshopsin Europe, often having the whole side of the table sliding like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVYUss6pJqQ
Pros:
- Can handle large panels easy and super precize. Large ones can handle a whole sheet (224×122 cm)
- Safe to use due to worker not behind the blade and hands away
- A shaper spindle is often added for making dors, windows and mouldings
- Straightening boards are super easy and safe
- Typically have a lot of power and 3-8 kw is common
- Can be fitted with a scoring blade that makes perfect cuts in veneer, ply etc
Cons:
- Large!
- Rather expenisve

Todd Swartwood built one for himself, and I must say he did a hell of a job on it too. ! Here’s his blog.

Don’t know much about the sliding table, but I do I know one thing – I hate that MTM woodworks guy.

Of course I don’t really hate him, but I certainly envy his talent. His boards are beautiful!

YouTube showed me a commercial without a skip button…

It just did it again, this time for Sandvik.

Now that I know it’s called a “sliding table saw” I found a 16-year old one near me on Craigslist (Felder KF 700S) for a measly $7100. Ouch.

I just clicked on your link and I get no commercial, just the video.

Maybe something here will help.

Well YouTube is a great learning tool. But like they say “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink”. Lol

Agreed… I use it a lot.

I’m extremely leery of “free” software and extensions to eliminate ads from legitimate sources. There’s nothing for me to learn here… ;^)
