|Glenmore||Thanks for the ideas gives me some ideas of my own. For when I'm using the table see I mostly did my routing free handed. Only used the table last year once for jointing my boards this year I want to see if I can get into being a lot more artistic with molding and joints for my projects. I'm just experimenting with all my wood working if it looks good and I'm saticfied with it then I stick with that still. Well if it comes out and flop then try something else. I just love expermenting with wood takes a lot of aggression out and is relaxing.|

Hi: I have had my Oak-Park table, fence, and some of the accessories for the last few years, I find them very good. Can't complain about anything I have gotten from them. |
On the Miter slide system I have made a new fence for cutting doe tails into drawer fronts. I made it from oak, and it works well, I'm now going to make a new version using the plastic materials. Woodnut65

Industrial users have had chain tensioners for years from these materials. Low wear and self lubricating properties make them ideal for woodshop use.|

new fence input
I got my table fence today from oak-park and I am very impressed with the durability it is made of durable plastic it is about an inch thick and I'd say 2" wide. I was going to use the fence from my old table but it wouldn't bolt up the same. I would have had to bolt it right to the base plate and worry about weaking it so I bought this in it's place. The only reason that I'm impressed with it never had a fence made out of plastic before strong enough to hurt a buglar with. The only complaint I do have is that I have to order these fine products on the weekends because I keep missing out on the sales but other wise very fair price on it.
Oops sorry Mark put it in the wrong subject tried correcting it but it won't let delete it there I slapped my patties for you. I should have put this in the table routing section.
