  • Sliding table for 3612

    Hey
    Can anyone suggest a good sliding table for the 3612? One that will not have to be redesigned or heavily modified to fit and function properly?
    Also is the miter gage that comes with the 3612 a good enough gage that I don't need to shop for another?
    I've already purchased a 3612, but I can't pick it up until next week, so I'm trying to do some homework now on other items I might need.
    Thanks

    JB,

    No email address listed so I will post.

    How is Soldotna? I spent 6 months there in 1963. I'm sure it has changed a little. In fact I caught a salmon bigger than I was under the bridge over the river.

    If you have any digital pictures forward a few, if you dont mind. rixworx@yahoo.com

    thanks
    Rick

      JB,

      Not sure about the sliding table, but I have the Rockler miter guage with the extension for my 3612 and it works great. It has an adjustable miter bar that fits great.

        I would believe that the Dubby would fit and work well for your needs. It also has a built in angle guage for miter cust so you have killed 2 birds with one accessory.

          Dan, I guess it is time for me to show just how clueless I can be at times, but what is a Dubby? I just bought a 3612 as my first TS and I know that I will be looking for a sliding table for myself.

            I made a sliding table (what Norm calls a panel cutter) with a piece of used 1/4 inch plywood, a 2 foot long piece of hardwood carefully milled to exactly fit into the miter slot, glued and screwed to the "back" of the plywood, and then waxed. When that is dry, cut the edge of the plywood by sliding it in the operating position(giving "zero clearance" support) and attach a stop at the top edge of the plywood. The stop must, of course, be carefully aligned, but a framing square against the rip fence makes that easy.

            The primary purpose of the sliding table/panel cutter is for panels, but I find it helpful for cross-cuts as well - far more stable than just using the miter gauge.

              A Dubby is a miter gauge attachment that gives you more stock support....I saw a few at the WW show or I'd have been in the dark as well....I'd never heard of them.

                Thanks Kelly! Maybe I'll get to investigate one at a show some time. Does it look like it would be worthwhile, or should I just build a homemade panel cutter for additional support?

                    Regarding the sliding table jig for the TS3612, you might want to try Mule Cabinetmakers. Website: www.mulecab.com They make after-market fences and accessories for ts's,routers and band saws. They make a sliding table that bolts to the saw body. Around $250 (?). I have their rip fence (1040). It is very accurate and stays parallel. They are the manufacturer so cost is kept low due to no middle man. Hope this helps.

                      I like that sliding table RixWorx posted...saw it last nite on the website. The dubby looked ok, but a homebuilt on would be better I think...or get the sliding table from Rockler and modify it....it looks pretty slick on that saw.

                        If you are interested in the Rockler sliding table this fellow has a real in depth critique on it, with step by step building instructions, including pictures and tips. I ran across it a long time ago and saved the url. Very interesting.
