Round expansion table mechanism

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I need to design a simple expansion table mechanism with 2 leaves for a round top. I'm looking for ideas on how to do it so it is easy to use and functions well. Anything out there I can duplicate by way of drawings or pics? Book? Magazine article? Thx.

I have used commercially available wooden slides before and was disappointed with the loose saggy action. I would look at the metal slides. Most manufacturers should have some guidelines for how big and how many leaves can be used.

I'm afraid I don't think this will answer your question but it is a flipping cool way to expand a round table...

Yes, I've seen that before. It's very impressive, but I don't come across too many clients who would be able to afford it if I tried to duplicate it! I did, however find a mechanism that I'm going to buy for my current project and perhaps develop my own based on it for any further expansion table projects. We haven't gotten much call for them.
