Well, less that 1,000 pages left to go! I’m up to page 1,325 in my self chosen task of going through the entire projects section here, and I hope there’s a lot of room in the “favourites” file, because I’ve tagged more than 50 items that I want to either build or use as inspiration or just plain got blown away by…
I think John Nixon’s ”super sled” is going to be the first thing I build from that list, as I don’t currently have a tablesaw sled and can see the many benefits of one. I have a few modifications in mind to keep the cost down to fit my severely limited budget: MDF instead of plywood and some scrap plexiglass from a local sign shop as a replacement for the T tracks. Just use the plex as the surface of the fence with a 5/16 slot routed in it over the 3/4 T bolt slot in the MDF. This will give me the added benefit of strengthening the rear fence and protecting it from dings. If it does get damaged, a replacement is only a couple of blocks away in the sign shop’s trash bin.
This will be the first use I’ve gotten out of the jig pieces kit I bought on sale at Lee Valley last week. I knew there was a reason I bought that kit!
