  • Sliding miter table add-on featured in Wood mag 10/2000

    Wood Magazine featured a sliding miter table in their October 2000 (Issue 127) issue. This is a shop made miter table. It looks like they did an excellent job. They added it onto a Ridgid TS2424, which is what I have. Has anyone tried to make this for their TS (Ridgid TS2424 or otherwise)? If so, how do you like it or in hindsight would you have been better off buying a high quality miter gauge?
    Thanks,

    Man, I wish I had the plans for that one. Maybe I can find that online. It's something I've been wanting to do with my 3650.

      You would be better off buying a commercial sliding table as opposed to building the design Wood came up with, it has several shortcomings. I have a “survey of sliding tables” article on my web that would go into this in more detail if you are interested.

          Very nice site you have there, Phil! I especially like your Unisaw sliding table design.

          I was the designer for the original Unisaw and 12/14 Slitter saw sliding table accessory unit while at Rockwell (Delta's owners prior to PentAire)in the mid '70s. While our sliding table design was superior to anything out there, it was a very expensive accessory, and didn't sell well. It was also introduced at the beginning of a terrible economic downturn (which in fact resulted in the closing of Rockwell's power tool group and me coming here!)

          When I bought my Delta 10" Contractor's saw, I went looking for a used Unisaw slider I could adapt, but couldn't find one. When I get around to setting the shop up again, I'll have to keep your design in mind.

          Thanks,

            I seen the article on the sliding table, and one on a outfeed table. I made the outfeedtable and bought a sears fingerjoint miter extention? It works very well for me. And the outfeed table was simple to make.
