Fitting a New Frog Slide
This looks like a lot of steps when written out, but with practice the whole procedure shouldn’t take more than ten minutes. Try it with some pieces of popsicle sticks so you can get the feel of what you need to watch out for and how bold to be as you approach the final cut. Taking the slide in and out of the chuck will not affect accuracy at all if you don’t mischuck it, so don’t be afraid to check it often for width. When sanding the faces (front and back) of the slide, a combination of orientation of the slide and finger pressure will give you complete control of the thickness and any taper that needs to be sanded into the back of the slide.
