That's it, they also offer it in sliver anodized finish.

What was that code again for $30 or $50 savings?

Jim- not seeing the same one now on their website when opening it. I would call them and ask for the Save50 Promo. If not, then sign up for their promo listings- it's bound to come around again in some form or another, whether it be 15% off(same thing on this item) or $50 off.

Am looking forward to doing the hybrid Springfield pedestal/Dicor slide combo; will report back when it's in.

I think I missed that detail on this thread

How is this mix and match possible?

By cutting down one side of the Springfield 12 X 12" pedestal top to 6.5" I believe to fit the Dicor slide width dimension. The slide is sold separately.

Just received the Dicor 4-way slide today. Making it fit to the Springfield was fairly simple. The Springfield has a 12 X 12" top plate, whereas the Dicor is 6.5 X 8". Just take 2" off each side of the Springfield and it fits. Since the top plate is aluminum you can use a Skill saw to cut it. A grinder with medium grit sandpaper to take the rough edges off is nice, but that edge is hidden.

If you do this make sure you line your table top up before choosing which side to cut down. Once I did that I drew an arrow with a pencil so I wouldn't forget.

The first photo shows the Spingfield platform with a pencil line in the front.
Second shot shows the L-metal of the slider upside down; used it to trace my line.
The last photo shows the clamps; they are facing the front of the trailer for easiest access to operate. Had a little scare when the top clamp wouldn't open enough due to the frame of the slider. Loosening the nut slightly did the trick and it clamps down enough to hold it in down position.

The wide frame underneath makes the table feel solid with no wobble at all.

Ross, thanks for all your pioneering work on this. How is the quality of the Dicor? Is it smooth and quiet in operation?

BTW- Leave the pedestal plate on. Removing it will make it loose thh pneumatic pressure.

The slider is great; the slide is on nylon rollers so there is some resistance, which is probably a good thing.

It looks good, Ross. I never realized the Springfield was had an aluminium top. The Dicor is steel.
