A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times.

I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off balance and tip off the table. Works really slick, especially if I’m making a few tiny slice cuts of a narrow piece. It allows me to get a very square and clean cut.

I still have the other 10” or so from the sled and will find a use for it soon too.

This was the first jig I made!
But mind does not have the hold down clamp.
Good design!!
