    I have been useing my cross cut Sled for several years,and for a stop for making repetitive cuts I used the one that looks like this.

    Then for some odd reason I finnally thought There must be a better way. So with a couple of threaded inserts and some 1/4 20 knobs,now things are much simpler

    Should have done this long time ago.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Great solution, Ron. I'll have to remember that for future use.

    Oooooooooooooooohhhhhhhh baby got a new pair of shoes!!!
    Man that is one serious upgrade on that sled!!!!
    Looks more user friendly as well as the parts stay attached and aren't laying loose around the shop. Man that is nice!!! Please remind me of this when I build a sled next year. Bookmarking and remembering where things are don't seem to work for me.
    And that is one sweet setup that shows a lot of craftsmanship without seeing any other projects!!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
