Where can we learn more about accuracy classes?

@JJ : NOt sure where you can read more about it but Class II is accurate over the entire length to within 0.0008” + (L/10000) (L is the length in inches).

Good job on the table saw sled. I made a small parts crosscut sled awhile ago, you can go check it out in my projects. That’s a good way to make the blade square to the fence, I never knew that! Thanks for the tip and good job on the sled!

Nice job. I have a very small sled that rides on just one miter slot and I need to build a bigger one soon. I like your fence squaring technique… might have to get a dial indicator.

GW, You ARE the dial indicator king. I always click to see a new way to use the DI. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone!

The DI should be one of the first tools a woodworker buys after getting a table saw, but that’s just one guys opinion. :^)
