Finally got a chance to finish up and paint my "home brew" cutting torch jig.
Added one more thing to it that added a bunch to the functioning.
Worked pretty good as was with semi polished slides, but not as friction free as I wanted it.
Saw this high density plastic stick on tape, used primarily for dresser drawers and such for
Read that woodworkers were using it also on their rip fences on table saws and router table guides
for near friction free sliding.
Figured it would be worth a shot on the sliding angle iron of the cutting jig.
It's only 1/32" thick, ordered a 3" wide 10' roll of it.
This stuff is amazing and works as advertised, it's like the "works" is on ball bearings now!
The adhesive on the backside is great, didn't have to replace it with JB Weld.
Absolutely no glitches or "hang-ups" when cutting, making for a very smooth, straight cut.
Great stuff to aid sliding between two surfaces.
You got radial arm saws, calling this my "fire saw" now.
Here's some product info, ordered it from Woodcraft, couldn't find it at any of the big box hardware stores,
seems it would be good stuff for them to handle.
