    did op really mill the gib only clamped down on the ends? i wouldnt have thought that was possible. maybe i overlooked something in the picture. did he then cut off the ends?

    also, i have been thinking:the way and table will not be worn in a linear manner, but the wear will be larger on the ends. so there will be a tighter area in the middle. you have to scrape down the small end of the gib to pass throuhg that tighter area. and then it cant grow again, so it will have slop when pushed through. but then again it seemes to have worked how it was done. although the picture of the original gib seem to confirm just this. any thoughts?
