My second blog in this series is an adjustable sled. In a perfect world a sled would stay spot on accurate for ever. In the real world however things go wrong for various reasons. To overcome this problem I thought about a sled with a fence that could be adjusted when it goes out of square for whatever reason. Then I saw Dave's Super accurate crosscut sled here on LJ. This was also the inspiration for the SketchUp model which can be downloaded over here
The other reason is that I found that squaring the fence on the initial build is quite a fidely afair and with this design I hope to overcome that problem.
I also put in a few features which I would like to incorporate in sled mk iii. The removeable long fence. Replaceable zero clearance inserts to name a few.
I also incorporated a piston block stop block from Woodsmith tips
Comments and positive critique will be appreciated.
