Equalizing Pedestal Slides
The standard table slide, used for opening and extending standard four leg tables, consists of a series of parallel boards that are able to slide back and forth on smooth joinery with a male and female butterfly notch. Our split frame slides accommodate openings from 26" to 120". Please note: a slide designed for use on a four legged table develops a camber to compensate for sagging at the center of the table. It is important to use the correct table slide.Tabletops that are supported on a single pedestal require an equalizer slide that incorporates a rack and pinion system to ensure that the tops open and close easily while staying in balance. Our equalizer slides will permit openings on pedestal tables from 25 1/2" to 79". Please note: the slide that is designed for use on a pedestal table develops a camber to compensate for sagging at the ends of the table. It is important to use the correct table slide.The equalizing slide for standard tables is a hybrid design. Combining the function of the standard slide with the smooth rack and pinion mechanism of the equalizer design allows this table slide to support an extra large standard table with a center support. This slide is ideal for 5-legged tables. The equalizing element allows for the center of the slide to remain stationary which is ideal for adding an additional leg to further support the center of the table design.

Originally, the only way to expand or contract dining tables was by adding or removing tables from the overall length. Now, Osborne Wood Products offers everything you need to create an extended table design. We offer three different types of table slides that can accommodate four-legged, five-legged and pedestal base table designs. Our high-quality table slides are easy to use and provide versatility in your home without taking away from the style.

Our Standard Table Slides can be installed on four-legged tables to allow for extension of the table to accommodate more guests. This table slide design consists of a series of parallel boards that are able to slide back and forth on smooth joinery with a male and female butterfly notch routed along the edge for support. These slides can accommodate openings from 26" to 120". We also offer Equalizer Table Slides, which are meant to be installed on tables that feature a single pedestal base. These table slides feature a rack and pinion system that allows the table to open and close easily while remaining balanced. These table slides accommodate openings from 25 1/2" to 79". Lastly, we have a unique fusion design that can be used on five-legged tables called the Standard Equalizer Table Slides. These combine the function of the standard slide with the rack and pinion mechanism of the equalizer slide in order to accommodate extra large table designs.

With three variations and numerous sizes to choose from, you are bound to find the perfect fit for your next project. For more information about choosing the right table slide and installation, please visit our table slide information page.
