X, Y Problem Solved.?

Ok. I came up with a design for my X,Y tables for my horizontal mortiser that doesn’t require drawer guides. It utilizes steel rods and sintered bronze bushings. I ordered the rods and bushings today and this thing should be finished soon!!

The top table will move freely on the top two steel rods and the bottom table will do the same (on the bottom rods). The bronze bushings should slide like melted butter.
