    Good job of documentation. I am sure it will help many.

    If you want straight forward and easy, I would use Blum epoxy slides. Inexpensive and super easy to use. I built a whole kitchen with them 25 years ago, and they are still working like new.

    I am with Dave Sabo....check out an old Inca.

    I have also seen old Delta HomeCraft and Rockwell 12" bench model saws that seem a lot more sturdy than any new ones. Not uncommon on CL.
