Default Upgrade for 10" cabinetmaker tablesaw

This is a project that has been rattling around in my head for some time. What had it stalled was the lineal rail and bearing system. One day when I was researching info on CNC routers I came across a set of Linear bearings and rails I felt was quite doable.

So after finding that I made my version:

You can also check out my blog as it has a lot of detail,” http://lumberjocks.com/todd628/blog/43247“

The rest you may say is history. It is very easy to remove the extension wing, I have 3 lever ratcheting handles that you remove and loosen 2 – 9/16” nuts, lift the outer end off the bearing and pull the entire unit off. It takes less that 5 minutes to either add or remove the wing.

I have not done much as far as dialing it in, however when I made the first trial cut, I used a sheet of 1/4” plywood 4 X 8 . I crosscut the 4’ with less than 1/64 out in 4’, I am very pleased with that. One day I will have the time to get it on the money.

I hope you enjoy this post, I have had a great time building this sliding table. By the way it can crosscut up to 92” not bad for a shop made sliding table.

Please take time to comment, and have a very blessed day, Todd

Thanks Dan, Mostly it is desire for certain and nice tools with a very small budget.
When I realized aluminum can be machined with woodworking tools a new world opened
to me. I do have a very active imagination when it come to tools and equipment.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Have a blessed day and have some fun making dust, Todd

Very nice, Todd. Aluminum is good to work with for our kind of tooling, especially if you can find it at the scrap metal yard. I wish I had the room to do something like that.

Hi, Todd.

Have you ever routed a piece of aluminum? Have you used a special bit? Please, let me know.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

Alexis, You should be able to rout aluminum without a problem, but you need to use a 'wax stick' made for lubricating the bit. You can find a description of it here: Stick wax lubricant ?

Sorry Alexis,
Yes milling aluminum is not difficult use a slower speed and solid carbide bits, carbide tipped bits give the aluminum a good place to stick. Move slowly make sure to have good hold down pressure sure, and keep the bit lubricated. If you have an extra person around put them in charge of keeping the bit cool and lubricated WD40 will work. Their was quite a bit of router work on the bearing trucks.

Have a blessed day and enjoy making some dust, Todd
