In a short video episode I describe how I installed the Laguna Tools sliding table on the Unisaw table saw. I then describe the sliding table itself — it has ultra-smooth sliding function, with imperceptible side-to-side movement. The remainder of the video covers basic functions of the table, and how it is likely to modify how I approach tasks at the table saw, using the slider in lieu of a cross-cut sled.
I cannot over-emphasize the importance of the sliding table and safety: It allows the user to walk behind the table, keeping your hands and body away from the firing line in the event of kickback.
I look forward to your feedback in the Comments section below. I also would like to know:
- Do you currently use a sliding table on your table saw?
- If you do, is it a European saw?
- What do you like best about your sliding table?
- What do you dislike most about your slider?
