    Modified my panel sled...

    Thanks to Larry....

    I had a little free time today at the house... (copmuter problems on the work machine, so I'm sitting home twiddling my thumbs)

    After picking up scraps and sweeping out the shop among other little things (didnt' want to get into anything too involved, in case I had to drop things and go to w***), I decided that I would listen to Larry's advice not too long ago, and put a block on the back of my crosscut sled. It was just something quick and easy to do, so it ain't pretty, but it is there ,and I'm sure it will help.

    I'm planning on making a much smaller crosscut sled in the 'near' future, but there's a lot more stuff in the storage unit yet to come home, so it may be awhile.

    That stop is a great idea. I've got a second thickness of material on mine, but nothing but my attention span to prevent me from cutting through it and into what ever appendage might be in line with the blade as it comes through.

    I also made some kind of "travel stops" so, I don't push too much nor pull too much...
