    Table saw - Mortiser - Sliding stop builds.

    I needed micro adjustability for the tablesaw and mortiser for the shoji work I have been doing.

    The original stop moved when it was positioned and tightened, I solved that by making a bearing for the interior of the aluminum extrusion.

    Then for the mortiser I decided to work off of a linear bearing system. I added a Zimmer rail stop so you avoiding having a machine handle on the rail. Not totally done with this but itís basic function is complete.

    Wow Brian. That is some beautiful, precise and practical work! Bravo.

    Brian, are you a machinist that does woodworking as a hobby?

    The pictures are one thing, but then you go and include the video. ...it's just NOT fair! First the knife ....and then you twist it!

    That's like some Pat Warner-level precision right there. Very nice!
    And there was trouble, taking place...

    Brian, that is a beauty! As much art as functionality.

    C'mon Brian, it's only woodwork: wood moves, and you gotta leave room for shrinkage and expansion, and who is going to buy all the woodfiller and gap filling glue. Excellent work old bean! Love it!

    Did you send this to MicroFence? I’m sure Richard would like to see it.

    Brian, did you machine the L-stop out of one solid block of brass? I like the pneumatic clamp! I will remember this detail for future reference.

    Hah! Chris and I had some long running jokes on the “futility” of such efforts.

    Thank you!

    I did, haven’t heard anything back but I think Richard gets a lot of emails.

    Thank you! It’s a two piece part, the fork is press fitted (light press) to the arm and the brass shoulder bolt keeps everything in place.

    I see now that I looked at picture #4 more closely. Nice machine work! I couldn't tell the suggestion of the mating surfaces at first in that picture until after you answered and I returned for closer inspection. I have a PM-833T that I am tooling up for this sort of projects. So much more pleasant to drill accurate holes with a milling machine vs. using a DP. Thanks for sharing.
