As you already know a few weeks ago I got my first TS. It works great and I am very happy with it, apart from the bad dust collection system that it has but I will fix that soon.
This TS has a slider which I find it great and safer. Now I'm thinking about building some jigs for it like a sled to make finger joints for instance.
I think that what I should do is take advantage of the slider and fix the sled box on it rather than locking the slider and slide the jig on the groove that the slider has.
I guess that the same would apply for any other kind of jig but I would like to hear your opinions about it.
I know that in US most of the saws don't have a slider and the groove is on the right side of the blade, while on mine being the slider on the left hand the groove is on it and hence on the left side which forces me to look at the piece from right to left instead from left to right.
Maybe Charlie or any of you that has a saw with slider can chime in.
Thanks in advance.
