To a small child, the perfect granddad is unafraid of big dogs and fierce storms but absolutely terrified of the word “boo.” – Robert Brault
I'm the same way I just keep putting it off and when I do its I could of had a V-8...................
Nice sled by the way
Yep, if I had a dollar for each time I'd said that, and done that..... well, I could buy some more tools!
I like to double or triple up the thickness of the rear boar right where the saw cuts through, just a bit more insurance to keep my fingers from setting off the brake cartridge in my SawStop
Sometimes when I'm cutting a bunch of small pieces by using a stop block on these sleds, I worry that my hand could wander and forget about that blade coming out of the back of the sled, that's all
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
William Arthur Ward
A tablesaw sled has to elicit the phrase "why did I wait so long" more than nearly any other shop made jig. ;-)
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Gluing on a piece of 2 x 4 or 4 x 4 just might save you some major discomfort in the future. You made the sled; it is working great, put the seat belt on it and we can all breathe easier.
Bossy aren't I?
Enjoy and keep your fingers,
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
another thing to do is put a stop piece on the back rail darren to stop in the extension table slot you have.. mine has a stopped grove and the stop only allows me to go so far.. and i also have the double thickness on the frnt edge like stu mentioned and jim and glenn both have.. i think a TSAW sled is much more valuable than some of the corded tools i own..
If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

I recently made one to accurately cut small parts. Now I need to make one for cutting big parts!
