- Angle steel (380 MPa)

40 x 40 x 4


35 mm

- High straight-knurled screw

M 6 x 18

- Fillister head screw

M 3 x 10

- Wide washer

Hole diameter: 6,2 mm


Hand tools

Steel scriber or surface gauge, marking and centre punch, hand hacksaw, engineers' hammer, drills 2.5 mm dia.; 3.1 mm dia.; 5 mm dia.; 6 mm dia.; 6.2 mm dia.; nut taps M 3 and M 6, bastard and smooth files 250 mm (flat), mortise chisel, cape chisel, flat chisel

Measuring and testing tools

Steel rule, vernier caliper


Vice, C-clamps, machine vice, steel plate or anvil

Required previous knowledge

Reading of drawings, scribing, prick-punching, measuring, testing, drilling, countersinking/counterboring, sawing, filing, thread cutting

Sequence of operations


1. Arrange workplace, prepare working material

- Check for completeness

2. Scribing of the component (1) and working of the outline to size

- Sawing, filing

3. Punching of the hole centres in the slot, drilling and chiselling out of the slot by the mortise chisel

- Hole 6 mm dia.
- Distance between the hole edges 0.2 mm

4. Control of the slot, subsequently finishing by filing

5. Scribing of the component (2) and working to size of the outer edges

- filing

6. Scribing of the flat groove (24.2), sawing of the groove edges, chiselling of grooves by the cape chisel, chiselling off of the remained webs by the flat chisel

- Pay attention to firm fixing!

7. Checking of the flat groove, subsequently finishing by filing

8. Working to size of the component (3); Fastening with part (2) and drilling jointly; Boring separately and threading

- sawing, filing
- hole 2.5 dia. and 5.0 dia.
- boring 3.1 dia. and 6.2 dia. according to the drawing

9. Mounting by means of parts (4), ,(5), (6)

10. Final check

- Accuracy to size, appearance, good slideability of the slide
