Slide Mechanism For Dining Table

Stickley has a new table model out, introduced in fall of 2012, and the dining table, 40 x 78 when closed, slides open at center to be fitted with its two 18" extension leaves. The Highlands Trestle Table.

The mechanism is a set of ball bearing slides and cables, to work such that pulling one side out makes the other side slide away equally. Smooth as silk. The setup requires a little height, and there is a pocket with floor between the aprons and mechanism, for storage of the extensions.

Anybody know where the slide mechanism can be purchased?

Re: Slide Mechanism For Dining Table

Sounds like you're looking for "equalizer" slides:

You can try a google search for "gear driven table slide" or "equalizer table slide" for more options.
