    Bevel Sled

    I am looking for plans for a jig that will allow me to cut bevels (45) on my table saw leaving my blade at 90. I have seen a couple of different jigs like this but so far I have not found any plans for making one.

    If anyone has plans or instructions to make one I would be really happy to get a set. Pictures would be great as well.

    I like the idea of being able to use the sled and cut several pieces the same length for putting together several boxes or whatever that are the same size.

    Thanks and I look forward to seeing what you can send my way.

    Jmoo learning as I go.

    Found some different ideas on the internet. However, still looking for some suggestions from those that have built and used one.

    Thanks

    I saw one in Shop Notes where the woodworker used the sled off of an old circular saw. Attached the base (which is adjustable) to a piece of hardwood that slides in the mitre gap on the TS table.

    The nice thing about that is that you can set your angle, and forget it for repetitive cuts.

    I will see if I can find the article for you

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Thank you. That would be great. I am still trying to find one that I like and will be simple to use and of course make so that it cuts correctly. Once I find something then making bevel cuts will be easy. Cut the board to length and then cut the bevel and done. Oh, that is if I am thinking this out correctly.

    Thanks again

    Are you talking about bevels or miters?

    I realize this might be a little late to be helpful, but

    Wood Magazine just put something out today. Is this what your looking for?
