RGS - 55" Threaded Rod Kit (48 Inch Capacity)
This kit allows the addition of a threaded rod to an existing 55 inch long Router Gantry System Rail Assembly - Effectively, for creating the threaded index control on a 4ft working area capacity "bridge" unit.
Includes the threaded rod itself, two permanently sealed press-fit bearings, and two Acme-threaded nuts already spaced and installed on the rod.
The track works great.
The only problem is where the two rails come together.
The slide works great up to there and then it drags a little.
After the slide passes that area it good again.
If I add a little oil in that area it's all good.
If that's the only problem I have, I'm good with it
How do you keep a large but lite weight board from moving. I came close to ruining $500 worth of Black Walnut
Wedge clamps, made from scrap lumber work the best.
Take a scrap 1x or plywood and cut it in half at a gentle angle, 3 to 8 inches long. Flip so the hypotenuses/angled faces touch one another.
Use another piece of scrap at one end to create a hard stop. Slide the project up against it. Place another “surface” board and attach to the support table surface (used a longer 1x4 scrap in this photo) and affix one side of a wedge you cut to the surface board.
Second half of the wedge gets tapped in lightly to apply pressure on the project.
