I used to use a table saw with a sliding table back home , in France, many moons ago.
I loved it.
I have Rigid 4511 and I would like to mount a sliding table on it.
I have been looking at sliding tables on line.
I saw this one from Grizzly.

G4227 Sliding Table For Table Saws & Shapers
http://grizzly.com/outlet/Sliding-Table-For-Table-Saws-Shapers/G4227

It seems that it would fit the bill.
Do you have any experience with it?
How to mount it to a granite table ?
Could I drill the granite and install inserts with epoxy?
Thank you.
Bert

Because of BoardSmith’s reply ( thank you), what about this one: T10223 Sliding Table Attachment

Thank you.

Yes, they are nice but quite expensive 4 to 5 times the price of this one.

I have a sliding table that I put together myself from steel, aluminum, and various bearings an other parts when I had more time than money available. I know it won’t help you decide what type to get but in my opinion there is nothing better for squaring up stock before building cabinet boxes. Even my home made one works great for making parts square.

Just make sure the table travel is parallel to the blade and there is enough adjustment.

You may want to contact the saw manufacturer and see what they say about drilling the inserts or whatever into the Granite top. Maybe they have an adapter or something to use for the purpose. Maybe bolt something to the saw cabinet.

i have had the delta version now for a year or better i also learned to wood work with the delta version and have to say i wouldn’t be with out it.

i guess this it 2 different opinions of the same tool

once set up properly its very accurate and dependable but i have to admit the second one looks more accurate

-- I buy tools so i can make more money,so ican buy more tools so I can work more, to make more money, so I can buy more tool, so I can work more

Hi Bert;

I’m not familiar with the Grizzly units, but I’ve had a Jet sliding table on my saw for about 10 years. While it’s large than the ones you mention, they all follow a basic design / function. It’s fantastic. I can easily cross cut a full sheet of plywood on it, and it will be perfectly square.
As mentioned, once they are properly set up, they are a big help.

Thank you all for your replies.
I am building a shop.
When I am moved in, I most likely shall buy the T10223, the same that Laguna Tools also sales.

I came across this thread when considering the T10223 (and Laguna) when I had the same dilemma. I went out on a limb and bought the Grizzly T10223 without seeing any opinions from anyone who had used it, and I am very glad that I did. The table is far superior to the older Delta look alike (I removed that one to install the T10223), and it works beautifully. My only complaint is the relative shortness of the fence. I would have paid a bit more for a fence that would allow the stop to be placed out at least 50” from the blade…but that’s not an option yet.

There is now (post-plunge) a solid review online if you google for a review of the T10223 by “Big Tim”. I would have purchased sooner had I seen the review first.

Oh…one last thing. The only problem you might have is a building urge to get an 8’ sliding table saw once you see how well a good table works…

Bert, if you have to drill the R4511 granite, it might be worth considering getting someone from a company that installs granite counter tops to do it for you.

Usually most, like me, that install a new fence on the R4511 drill new holes in the rails rather than drill the granite top.

Hey Bert. I have a saw for sale – a Unisaw with a custom sliding table. Blaine Vonhagen actually made this machine – it is awesome. You actually commented on it a while back. Are you interested in this? I am in So. Cal. I am only selling it because it is physically too large for my little one-car garage shop. Let me know. Thanks. Todd

Todd,
Thank you for thinking about me but I am pretty much out of wood working, so no thank you.
Very nice saw.
