    Interesting, wow .020” is a lot! That would be pretty sweet to see that big table scraped in flat, but I’d imagine that’s a pretty time consuming start.

    I make furniture and I don’t use drawer slides.

    My desk is pretty high use, so I made Teflon runners for it. In nine years of daily use I’ve yet to notice a difference or any drooping.

    Before you adjust the tables by tilting them, make sure the cutter is just a touch proud of the outfeed. I like to adjust it until it just barely begins to grab a piece of wood resting on the...
