I like sliding tables. I do have doubts as to whether this
wooden format sliding table saw would hold up in a shop
where more than one or two people were using it,
but it’s an impressive build nonetheless, based around
a humble Gil-bilt home-made table saw kit.

Holy cow! That is the real deal.

I always wonder about those homemade tools like that. Sometimes I think about making my own tools, but then I calculate cost and it often seems just as expensive. If you have some connections for parts though, it can be a good deal. Nonetheless, that is very impressive.

I don’t know how many planes of existence there are in the metaphysical world, but those woodgears people long ago added a new one.
