    Default Aluminum Tslot table

    Has anyone tried an aluminum T-Slot table on the buddy?
    where did you get it and how much was it.

    The table on my buddy is cupped (hump in the center) and flattening the secondary spoil board did not get rid of it.

    Any other ideas to fix this would help.

    Nick there is a heap of info on this in the Buddy Section. Andrew seems to have the best solution and I modified it slightly on our Buddy 7 months ago and it is perfection!

    If you go with T-Slots suggest you use 4" centres. I suppose you realise the original Buddies had an aluminium table??

    Actually I didn't. I'm new to this <4 months since I ordered my machine. The MDF table move around from day to day from humidity. I wanted to get an aluminum table to stop this. I may look into refitting with rollers on the outer edge as well.
