16 . Can the sliding table be used with a table saw that has a left tilt blade?
A. Yes. The Exaktor Sliding Tables have two mounting brackets available, a two-part quick release-mounting bracket or a one-piece mounting bracket.

The one-piece bracket is more suitable when the sliding table is to be attached too, and remain with the machine. Whereas the two-part bracket gives the flexibility of easily removing the table to get it out of the way, or move and attach it to another machine, router table, shaper, etc.

If the two-part quick release bracket is to be installed to the edge of the table saw, with the saw table’s extension removed, it requires 3-1/2" vertical clearance down from the top of the saw's table.

IE: The Powermatic 66 table saw was made available with two types of motor covers. A steel cover that is hinged and welded to the cabinet of the saw, or a black 'plastic' cover that is hanging off two bolts.

If the table saw has the plastic motor cover the vertical slots on the backside, at the top, of the cover can be lengthened to let the cover 'drop down' on the side of the saw's cabinet. This allows space for attaching the 3-1/2” deep mounting plate for the two-part bracket to the edge of the saw's main table. 

Alternatively, if the saw has the steel motor cover and the left extension wing is to be removed, the one-piece bracket is only 1-1/2" deep and can be attached to the edge of the saw's table clearing the steel motor cover.        

17. How is the sliding table attached to a table saw?
A. It is recommended that the sliding table be attached to the left edge of the main saw table to position the table as close to the saw blade as is possible. This minimizes vibration and drag on the work piece. Remove the left extension wing from the saw table and bolt the Quick Release Bracket to the saw table. This will require that you position the guide rails for the saw fence so that the left-hand end of the these guide rails are made flush with the left edge of the saw table. Alternatively, the mounting bracket can be attached to the edge of the saws extension wing.

18. How is the sliding table attached to the edge of the saw’s extension wing?
A. It will be necessary to drill two holes in the lip of the extension wing.

 19. What color is the sliding table?
A. The table is OSHA Safety Orange. The legs and cross braces are black.

20.Do the front or rear guide rail for the saw’s rip fence have to moved or cut off?
A. For the EX40 and EX60 sliding tables the guide rails for the saw’s rip fence cannot project past the edge of the saw table the sliding table is to be attached too. The guide rails for the EX26 sliding tables can be positioned behind the rip fence’s front guide rail.

21.Can the Sliding Table be moved with a table saw that is on a movable base?
A. An optional pair of support braces are available that will keep the table in position on the table saw when the table saw is moved. The braces are telescopic and are attached from the bottom of the sliding table’s outboard guide rail to the front and back corners of the table saw’s base. When the table saw is to be moved, the telescopic legs for the sliding table are raised and locked in the ‘up’ position. The sliding table is held in place by the support braces. When the table saw has been moved into place, the telescopic legs are ‘dropped down’, and locked in place, making the legs the correct height to support the sliding table.

22. Can the crosscut fence be removed from and/or replaced on the sliding table?
A. The fence is quickly and easily installed and removed from the front or rear of the table in less than one minute.

 23. Does the table have a stop for positioning the fence at 90 degrees to the saw blade?
A. Yes. Flip-up stops to position the crosscut fence at 90 degrees to the saw blade are located at both the front and rear of the sliding table.

24 . To cut angles, how is the fence positioned on the sliding table?
A. The sliding table is equipped with an engraved degree scale that reads 0 degrees (square to the blade) to 50 degrees.

25. How are longer pieces of work that project out from the sliding table supported so they will not sag?
A.
A movable panel support is provided that attaches to the underside of the crosscut fence.

26. Can the sliding tables support work pieces that are shorter in length?
A. The open grid tables will accept removable table inserts made from ¾” stock. These inserts will form a ‘solid’ top to the sliding table.

27.What adjustments are provided to set-up the sliding table for accurate cuts?
A . The sliding tables are completely adjustable for leveling, tracking and traveling square to the saw blade.

28.Can the sliding table be locked in place on its guide rails?
A. Yes. A locking lever locks the sliding table anywhere along the table’s guide rails.

29.After assembly, how easy is it to remove and re-attach the sliding table to the table saw?
A. Exaktor sliding tables are equipped with a unique Quick Release Bracket that enables you to remove and reinstall the complete sliding table quickly and easily.

30.Can the sliding table be re-attached without readjustment?
A. Yes. If the table saw is moved to a different location on the shop floor it may be necessary to adjust the length of the telescopic legs.

31.When required, are replacement parts for EXAKTOR products readily available?
A. Exaktor carries a complete inventory of parts available for immediate shipment.

32. What kind of warranty is provided with EXAKTOR products?
A. All Exaktor tools are sold with a total customer satisfaction guarantee. You can use the tools for 30 days. If you are not satisfied or if the tools do not meet your expectations, you can return them for a refund of the purchase price. Thereafter, workmanship and materials are guaranteed for as long as the original purchaser owns them.

34.Will the EXAKTOR sliding table fit my table saw?
A. Exaktor's Quick Release Bracket will enable the sliding table to be moved and attached to conventional table saws, spindle shapers, router tables, band saws as well as any other machine table with a 1½” deep table edge to which the quick release or fixed mounting bracket can be bolted.

35. How is the height of the sliding table adjusted?
A. The mounting bracket that attaches the sliding table to the machine is adjustable vertically as are the telescopic legs supporting the guide rails. Instructions for leveling the table, and tracking the table parallel to the saw blade, are included in the assembly manual.

36.How much weight can the Sliding Table carry?
A. The Sliding Table will support up to 300 pounds and move easily on the stainless steel guide rails.

37.Can the Sliding Table be installed at either the left or right hand side of the machine?
A. Yes. Normally a sliding table is installed at the left side of the table saw. However, the Exaktor Sliding Table has been designed to allow the user to reverse its mountings and install it at the right hand side of the machine's table.
