To lift the slide vertically off the base
would be 652#.
The force holding it from sliding down the base angle is 534#.
To move it up the base angle would need force > 534#.
There is force required to overcome friction + force to overcome inertial mass + force to provide acceleration. F=mass x acceleration
There is no Pressure.
In all cases, a 3 x 3 x 1ft concrete lathe is not a hand moveable machine.
The T slot cross slide however, would be much less mass and with proper guides and lubrication could easily be moved by hand.

Many thanks lance
Is it possible to figure out how much pressure is needed to push them apart?
