Sled improvement ideas

Hi everyone.

Didn’t want to hi-jack the sled modification ring topic thus started a dedicated one for my idea.

Would mounting axial bearings between the sled & the chainmounting brackets be an idea to reduce torque?
So that the chainmounting brackets can rotate freely. Or doesn’t that make any sense?

My kit didn’t arrive yet (sits at customs :-/ ) but i’m currently building a frame and have a first sled cut out of 12mm acryl. Hoping for less friction then wood on wood plus it’s transparent! Gonna cncmill a second one later on out of 15mm nylon. Won’t be transparent but even less friction.



I remember early on someone used acrylic and it was nice to be able to see the work-space beneath the sled!
