Anyone know how to make a sliding tablesaw jig?

I seen this one but do not know if  I can figure out how to do it plus I would like to have it closer to the blade.

It would be great for long boards and sheet goods.  Any ideas are most welcome
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

What's the advantage over a sled?

Maybe the weight support to the side of the main table.  Having worked with one for a couple years https://sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?...ble-review, I seem to recall that after the initial 'cool' factor wore off, it was more a PITA than anything else.  Largely because of the footprint, so I can see the allure of 'portable' if someone thinks they need one.

Maybe.  I have two tablesaws bolted together, with my sled on the right one, plus a router extension on the right.  That gives me a lot of support on both sides, especially the left, and even more if I add a roller stand outboard of that when needed.  The sled is large (on purpose) and heavy, but when it's off the machine it adds nothing to the footprint.

The sled fully supports the material on both sides and at the back of the cut.  The sliding table attachments have to rely on the blade insert and fence for that support.  A true slider is a thing of beauty; I wish I had one.  The TS add-ons, whether commercial or shop made, are poor seconds, IMO.

I could not lug that big thing around.  Even the small one I have takes to much effort to put on and take off and then we have to think of storing it if it needs to come off for sheet goods my BIL helps me with

You're up against the same problems with the sliding table unless you plan to leave it attached all the time.  Also, sawdust doesn't play nice with the grease in the drawer slides he uses in his design.  Drawer slides have a lot of slop in them, too.  There's a reason commercial sliding tables use higher level mechanisms.

Yep that was the plan leaving it on since any cutting can be done on it

This one looked really good

I did not see a link to what the Jet one looked like.

I can't see anything that looks familiar anywhere.
