Description

The Accu-Slice carriages all have 3 to 6 roller bearings on the base of the carriage. These bearings ride in the side grooves on the Accu-Slice rails to provide for a smooth vibration free movement of the carriage along the rail. The outer roller bearings are adjustable to allow for wear or to provide for a more rigid movement of the carriage.

L-Bracket Carriages The L-Bracket carriages are constructed from 4" x 4" x 0.25" thick extruded aluminum. They are designed to slice thin strips or slices off small and irregular shaped wood. The standard carriage assembly consists of a 90 degree angle bracket, 12” long x 4” high. Normally a 6” x 12” sacrificial fence made of wood, MDF or plastic is attached to the carriage L-bracket with ½” wood screws. This fence is screwed to the aluminum L bracket and acts as a support to which the wood to be cut is attached. Its purpose is to prevent the operator from inadvertently cutting into the aluminum L bracket. The wood to be cut is attached to this sacrificial fence using either double sided tape or hot melt glue. Our preference has been to use the double sided tape.

On the bottom of the carriage assembly are attached 3 or more roller bearings. The roller bearings consist of an inner ball bearing with a polycarbonate plastic outer wheel. These roller bearings slide on the rail to provide for a smooth even cut of your wood pieces. One or more of the roller bearings are adjustable to enable you to adjust the tightness of the carriage travel on the rail due to operator preference or due to system wear.

Additional carriage assemblies for other applications are available as described in the accessories page of this manual. For example carriages for longer pieces of wood are available.

For cutting longer pieces of wood (greater than 24” in length) it is recommended that the 24” carriage or multiple carriages be mounted onto the rail and joined together with a longer sacrificial fence. This will provide for smoother cuts of these longer boards. The boards to be cut should not extend past the end of the sacrificial fence in order to achieve the best cuts. It is also possible to use two carriages and to straddle the two carriages with a long sacrificial fence for cutting longer boards.

Segmenting Carriages - The segmenting carriages are designed to enable the cutting of the small wood segments used in segmented wood turning on the band saw. The advantage of cutting the segments on the band saw is that less wood is wasted and it is much safer than using a table saw. Available June 2017.

Flat Plate Carriage - The flat plate carriages are designed for the user to make his own jigs for specialized cuts using the Accu-Slice system. Each 6" x 12" flat plate contains multiple 1/4" tapped holes for mounting your fixtures. Available June 2017.
