Default Re: Jewelry box and Marquestry

Thanks for the comments. The fret saw has a hole drilled thru it and then a bolt is inserted thru the drawer slide while it is in the "open position". A nut and small lock washer was then used.The epoxy was supposed to lock the fret saw so that the blade went straight up and down. Rather than playing with the epoxy, if I were to do it again, I would mount the second slide the same way. That second slide would really improve this.

Another improvement could also be a way to adjust and lock the angle. My use of a screw and if I needed more tilt a shim and a screw is rather basic

If anyone tries to do this, and it really is fun to do, get the best little full extension slides you can and test the slop. I used the quickest ones I could find and there is some play.

As always, if I can help in any way, just ask.
