@rst did you ever use that big spoilboard bit?

Is there much friction with the 8020 slides?

8020 uses UHMW for this and their other sliding surfaces.  UHMW is as surface hard as stainless steel.  When I build a jig using it, I always work the piece back and forth until it wears matching the slots.  Once it is broken in it works with minimal effort and is extremely rigid. I still have not had the occasion to modify my set up to utilize my 2200 and the big planer bit.  I have so many projects that I usually don't modify my process' until necessity calls.
