I decided to make a new sled. One that addresses some problems I had with my old one. Mainly, it’s much smaller and lighter.

Steve: If you cut a 5/8” dado verses a 3/4” one, the T-Bolt will still slide back and forth however, it will “wedge” in the slot and keep the bolt from spinning when tightening.

Keep the Videos coming!!

Hey Steve, If You size and cut some 1/4” Lexon poly to cover Your top support rails and rear blade guard it will serve as great eye protection from dust and chips coming off the blade !!

This is another nice video, Steve. A sled is one of those tools that, after one is put in the shop, you immediately wonder why you did not make one sooner.
