Tenmille slide chairs

Post by jefran » Sun Jun 19, 2022 6:31 pm

In the 1990s I made a drilling jig for 8'-0" radius points using Tenmille chairs, and last year I used it again to make a couple of points for the loop of the revived line. Slide chairs seemed to be out of stock everywhere, but I found a pack on Ebay and used them. Now I want to add some sidings and need some more slide chairs; they are either out-of-stock again, or still out-of-stock. Can they be had, or is there another solution I haven't thought of? The obvious thing is to cut the inner jaw off the standard chair, but I am not sure that it would support the rail at the full movement of the points, or at least with the levers that I have seen.

Is this what you are looking for, if so, how many?

Those are exactly what I need! I think that I can manage with 4, if that is possible - thank you.
