I recently got a cabinet saw that has a cast iron bed, as most such saws do.
I want to make a sled for it which requires fitting rails to the guide slots in the bed.
One issue I see is that the guide slots are not particularly deep (they are a shallow T-slot style shown above) and they have a somewhat rough surface. If I run my fingers along the side of the slot, there is some roughness.
So, my question is whether I should be filing and scraping the slots to try to make them as smooth and straight as possible before fitting the rails, or do most people accept the slots to be a little rough and its not a problem?
