  • Making an air sled

    Have any of you guys made an air sled before? I want to make one for my tablesaw and I could use a bit of advice on making one. You can see a comercial version @ www.airsled.com

    How do you calculate airflow? The footprint of the base of the tablesaw is about 24" X 60" and it weighs about 600 pounds. My compressor is rated @ 12 SCFM @ 90 psi. Also, what would be the best material to make the sled out of? The sled will have to move around on the concrete floor of my garage.

    Thanks

    Andrew

      You'll need absolutely smooth/level surfaces to operate on. I looked up this matter about 2 years ago. Do a Google search for "air caster".
