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 table slides for standard tables 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. By combining the camber of the standard slide (to prevent sag in the center of the table), with the smooth rack and pinion mechanism, this table slide supports 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.
