  • Sliding Table for 3612

    Is there a commerical sliding table that will attach to the 3612 TS? That is, without significant modification to either the saw or table. Thanks for comment.

    He's a link to one that's affordable.
    There are more, depends on the thickness of your wallet. Or in my case, plastic. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

      Now that I finally got may taxes done (what a huge disapointment that was) here's a few more links on sliding tables.

      Rockler has one, here's a nice site to check it out first hand.

        Thanks Woody for all the references. Looked at a couple and think the $$ will limit my choices!!
        Just got back from HD with my new 3612 TS and 1300 Planer. Gotta get my ole Moline tractor outta the way tomorrow and start set-up Tues. Can't wait to get going on 700 feet of oak flooring for my upstairs floors, recovered from old barn beams.

          Have you considered making your own? I used a scrap piece of 1/4 inch plywood, attached a hardwood runner for the miter slot, and a stop along one edge, and it works great. Similar to the home made "panel cutter" on the New Yankee Workshop.

          My mistake was to make the plywood shy of the blade - if I ever need to replace it, I will make it wider, so the blade trims it (like a zero clearance edge) the first time I use it.

          Some people make bigger units, that ride in both miter slots, then have to built massive stops at the top and bottom so the blade doesn't cut through the whole unit. I haven't found that necessary.

          The stop along the leading (or trailing) edge has to be perfectly aligned, but that was done with a framing square along the rip fence.

          Some wax on the back makes the whole unit slide easily.
