The plastic bushings are the same ones that the bits come in the little square boxes,3/4" O.D. X 1/2" hole or 1/4" hole. I saved the ones that came with the bits, so basically recycling them and bought new ones from CMT to fill out with. They come in 10 ea. packs for a couple of bucks.

Sure I could have drilled  1/2" & 1/4" holes, but that is too low tech.:lol::lol:

wow.   Just wow.  That's really great. 

I got a question. How do you like that MLCS slider?  Any slop or chatter? got any pics of the bearing carriage ?

 

I just took a fast look, Cliff, it seems that there is an extrusion inside an extrusion. There is no bearings that I can see right now. no slop, slides very smooth, I lubed it with dry lube and it just glides,but does not override the push.

Here are some pictures, I will look at it tomorrow and see if there is more to it.

That's pretty impressive then to do that w/o bearings, "nylon" glides or some other type of support mechanism. Must be some type of anodized aluminum alloy that is resistant to scuffing, abrasion from friction and so on.

Obviously machined to fairly tight tolerances as well.

Thanks for taking time to dis-assemble and share the pictures.

Might try rubbing with some pure paraffin if you still have it apart...doesn't sound like it really needs it, but can't hurt either.

It is back together, but only takes a second to slide it all the way off. I will have to see if I can find a paraffin stick. Wonder if a Carnuba stick would work?

not likely...

that stuff is in better furniture wax and buffed/polished out is some really serious kind of hard...

 

Johnson's paste wax for your tables and tools...

You can add Briwax, Black Bison, Behlen, Trewax and Mohawk to the list of acceptable waxes...

If they contain Carnauba wax they will finish harder and be longer wearing/lasting...

You can even add more Carnauba if you want...

Wax applied to a warm surface is a big plus...

Mechanical polishing over hand buffing is way better.. (elcheapo car buffer or a wool bonnet on your ROS)...

Polishing is what makes the wax work to it's fullest...

More polishing.. Better results...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
