    Table saw sled - part I

    Good day

    I have only one sled that is dedicated to frame cutting at 45 and because it cuts so perfect, I don’t want to remove the triangle and use it also for normal crosscutting.

    Actually, I have two “half sleds” and sliding table so I don’t need a sled for crosscutting.

    I made this sled with small pieces ripping and crosscutting in mind.

    As you’ll see my TS is not “normal” and I have only one narrow miter slot so I had to make an “Outer runner” that runs on the table edge.
    The benefit of such a method is that first, the runner in the miter slot does not have to “fit snugly” and second, if the sled runners gets loose (play), I can always “re-tight” (or loosen, in case of humidity changes effect) or even change the “outer runner” to a new one without effecting the “Squareness” of the sled.

    Because the subject is very long…I mean, many pics (above 150), I divided it to 4 or 5 parts that I’ll post it in a few different threads.

    So, lets start….building the sled…

    Regards
