BEFORE BEGINNING
Identify and verify that you have all the parts listed. The
48" Rail Kit is designed to be used with a Woodhaven Planing
Sled. The Rail Kit will reduce the width capacity of your Planing
Sled by 1-1/2". You can join multiple Rail Kits together end-toend to make the any length rail for the length of your work, as
long as you provide a flat surface for them to sit on.

The Rail Kit needs to sit on a flat surface or, when


multiple Rail Kits are used, be able to be shimmed so their they
are straight and on the same plane if a long flat surface is not
available. Get a 3020 Connector Kit for each Rail length you
want to add. The work must be 12-16" shorter than the overall
length of the Rail Kit(s). If you're using one 48" Rail Kit, the
work should be no longer than 36". If you're using two 48"
Rail Kits joined end-to-end, the work should be no longer than
84". You'll need a #2 & #3 Phillips screwdriver for assembly.
Read the instructions carefully at least once before beginning.

ASSEMBLY
Install a 1-1/4" screw (MF020) thru the countersunk
holes in each of the 48" Fence Rails & Base Rails (3010A
& 3010B) and start an oval nut (5760B - smooth side
first) on the end of each screw. Slide four 1-7/8" Double
Tracks (4002) on to the oval nuts on each Fence Rail.
Slide the 1-7/8" Double Tracks attached to the
Fence Rail on to the oval nuts of the Base Rail so that

the face of the Fence Rail is flush with the edge of the
Base Rail. Check that the ends of the Fence & Base Rail
are flush to each other and tighten the screws. These two
assemblies will be referred to as the Rails. See fig. 1
Slide the 48" Double Track (4048) on to the remaining oval
nuts on each Fence Rail. Position the track so it's 1/4" below
the top edge of the Fence Rail, using the 1/4" shims (3010E) as
a spacer, flush with the ends and tighten the screws. See fig. 1

Install a washer (WB001) on each 1/2" screw (MT010),
insert a screw thru only one of the two holes in each angle bracket (CAB010) and start an oval nut (5750B - smooth side first) on
the end of each screw. Slide the oval nut in a T-slot in the face
of each of the 2-1/4" Double Tracks (3010D). Position the angle
bracket so it's flush to the end of each track and so there are two
mirror assemblies. When done, tighten the screws. These four
assemblies will be referred to as the Work Supports.
See fig. 2

Install three 3/8" spacers (BUSH050) on each of the four


knobs (5550S). Starting at 6" in from each end of the Rail, there
are 1/4" holes located every 4" along it's length. From the outside
of the Rail, insert the stud of the knob thru a hole that is near to,
but not past, each end of the work. Start an oval nut (5760B smooth side first) on the end of each knob. The two remaining
holes near each end of the Rail are for the 3020 Connector Kit
only.
Slide a Work Support over each of the oval nuts, with the
flat end of the angle bracket oriented upwards. The pair of Work
Supports/angle brackets on each Rail can face towards each
other, or away from each other, whatever suits you for access.
Tighten the Work Supports using the knobs.

USING ON WORK 2" OR THINNER


The work must have fairly parallel edges. Maximum depth
of cut without repositioning the work is approximately 5/8". For
work that is not too heavy or bulky, set the work face down on a
flat surface, shimming underneath it if necessary so it won't rock
from corner-to-corner or side-to-side. Lay each rail upside down
on the flat surface on either side of the work. Place two 1/4"
shims under the 48" Double Track of each Rail to support it. The
inside of the Rails should be parallel to each other, but not tight
against the edge of the work. Center the length of the work on
the length of the Rails, making sure the ends of the work are at
least 6" in from the ends of the Rails.

Mark and drill four 1/8" pilot holes corresponding to the


holes in the Work Support angle brackets and attach the Work
Supports to the underside of the work using the 1/2" screws
(STP004). See fig. 3
Flip the whole assembly over and clamp the Rails to the
flat surface to begin the planing operation. Depending on work
size and weight, you may be able to set the Rails on non-skid
pads and not use clamps. The Rails can also be attached to a
plywood base or two to three 2 x's fastened from one Rail to the
other.

STP004

If the work is too large or bulky to be safely flipped over with


the Rails attached, set the Rails upright to start out. Attach the
Work Supports to the underside of the work making sure they're
on 4" centers along each long edge of the work and parallel to
each other. Flip the work over and slide the four Work Supports
on to the oval nuts. If the work is large or bulky, this may require
help. See fig. 4

Instead of attaching the Work Supports directly to the


underside of the work, you can make a 3/4" thick work table for
the work to be double face taped to and attach the Work Supports
to the underside of the work table instead. Cut the work table
wider than the widest piece you anticipate planing. This is also
the best method if your part has irregular edges. This method
will reduce the maximum part thickness by the thickness of the
work table. See fig. 4

ADJUST WORK HEIGHT


Loosen the four knobs and set the height of the work at approximately 3/4" above the top edge of the Rails. The best method to set the height is to cut two shim blocks of the appropriate height and position them at each end of the work between the
underside of the work and the flat surface. Maximum depth of cut without repositioning the work is approximately 5/8".

3/4"

USING ON WORK OVER 2" AND UP TO 3-1/4" THICK


With this method the work will rest between the Work Supports and on the inverted angle brackets. Maximum depth of cut
without repositioning the work is approximately 5/8". The pair of Work Supports/angle brackets on each Rail will need to face
each other. This usually requires a work table and will limit the length of the work to the distance between the insides of the
Work Supports/angle brackets.

USING ON WORK THICKER THAN 3-1/4"


This method works well for resurfacing butcher blocks, etc.. Maximum depth of cut without repositioning the Rails is
approximately 5/8". The edges of the work must be nearly parallel, or the faces of the Rails must be shimmed as necessary so
they are parallel. If desired, you can remove the 48" Base, 1-7/8" Double Tracks and related hardware from the Rail to lighten
it. Fasten the Rails to the sides of the work using bar clamps or screws, making sure both Rails are on the same plane. The Rails
should be positioned approximately 3/4" below the surface of the work. You may want to measure up from the bottom of the
work, especially if it's surface is uneven, to insure the work will be get planed to an even thickness. The length of the work must
be 12" -16" shorter than the length of the Rails.
