Here’s a pair of videos where I unbox and demonstrate the usage of a Parallel Fence for a sliding table saw. A parallel fence allows you to use the sliding table to perform rips on the left side of the blade.

Hammer Time #2: Cut small parts on a Slider with a Fritz & Franz

Sliders are a natural for cutting sheet goods. But with the slider basically having a built-in sled, they can do the small parts as well. But if you want to do it safely, you need a jig known as a Fritz & Franz. It’s pretty easy to make and you can get as fancy as you want. Your hands stay well away from the blade. Here’s a video where I use a simple Fritz & Franz to make a new & improved one.
