Miter saw drawer slides
« on: October 17, 2020, 10:06 AM »
I'm running out of space in my workshop and am trying to find a way to free up some more space.  I'm thinking about recessing  my miter saw above my jointer and having it slide out on some drawer slides.  Does anyone know of some good heavy duty drawer slides that don't bounce around and won't get clogged up with saw dust?  Most slides I've used have quite a bit of flex in them, even if their load rating is plenty high enough.  I'm thinking of maybe putting it on some linear rails instead, but those are pricey.

I used the ones below when I mounted a DW735 planar on a set of slides.  Its close to 100 pounds.  Guessing your miter weighs much less.

I'm worried with that style of slide that the saw dust will build up on the tracks and clog them up though.  I've tried to build covers for slides before to protect them from dust build up without much success.
