It would be nice if Woodpecker offered up shorter extrusions as an extra/add on.  The extended kit gives you another pair of 6ft extrusions, but that means if you have to cut, say, an 8ft slab, you have to switch the router sled over to the first pair of 6ft extrusions and then build out the rails to 10 ft. long by combining the 6ft. + 4ft.  Or use the 6ft. rails and then move them to get at the last two ft. of the slab.

It would be nice if they offered the option of an extra pair of 2ft. or even 4 ft. extensions.

I assume the profile they are using is proprietary, and not available in the 80/20 catalog?

Just cut a 6'er into two 3'ers..gives you 9', should be enough to rout 8'.

BTW, Woodpeckers has agreed to sell me a single 4' extrusion for a decent price, which I'm going to slice up in half.  I have some 7 ft. slabs I'm going to be working on for a conference table, and so this will be perfect for a single use flattening table made from 2x framing material and a 4x8 sheet of ply

@ear3

Edward remember that you lose 15 inches from the overall frame length because the router sled has to stay on the rails at each end the bit is in the center.

So a 24 inch extension gives you an overall slab length of 81 inches since the 72 inch section can do 57
