I’m building a cross cut sled and bought 2 metal miter runners to attach to the MDF base. I’m having trouble getting the assembled sled to glide smoothly.
I put the runners in the miter grooves, placed the base on top, pulled all pieces back over the edge of the TS base, drilled and set wood screws into the holes from the bottom. Then did the same thing for the other ends.
Question: each runner has spring loaded bead like bearings on one side that are intended to keep the runner in the groove and remove play. Which direction should they be facing: both to the right, left, or each side opposing the other with bearings on the inside or outside? I understand their function but can’t get my head around how to mount them.
Thanks for any help you can offer, Don
