    Bob,
    One more clarification on the slide length vs drawer length and the dynamics of variable drawer box material thickness:

    I do too - they're the hydraulic lift style. One on infeed, one on outfeed. These serve as parts catchers, as I'm typically alone while processing. Also used precisely as you describe.
