  • Easy Glider

    Reduce setup time and increase your ability to compete on shorter runs with the Easy Glider from Tidland. The Easy Glider incorporates the best of both worlds; a true bearing for ease of movement, plus a dovetail guide bar for secure support and positive clamping. An industrial quality linear bearing rail is integrated into a traditional dovetail guide bar, and a precision recirculating ball bearing is designed into a Performance Series knifeholder mount. The two systems (dovetail and bearing) function independently without conflict. Easy Glider is available on new Performance Series knifeholders, and can be retrofit to existing units as well.
