« Part 52: Two-Stage Drum Sander- This is one AWESOME homemade machine! Part 53 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 54: Super-duper-yooper-pooper table saw crosscut sled- Part 2 of 2 »

We don’t do anything small. Not even crosscut sleds! This one has extendable fences, zero clearance inserts, micro-adjusters and three attachable jigs for finger joints, splined miters, half laps, bridle joints, tenons and more! This is part one- where I build the sled itself. In part two I’ll build the attachments.

Stumpy…The ‘pooper’ part sounds scary!

Nice build, nonetheless.

Stumpy

I have not watched it yet but that is what I was looking for. I finally made a sled and got it all squared up using the 5 cut method that another LJer did on a YouTube.

I finally after 16 times got it to .00112 and that is good enough for me. I can not imagine having to build one like that, it would take me months to build it.

Arlin- It only took me a day to build the sled, a little more to build the attachments. I guess I got lucky on the alignment, because it cam out the first try. But I was careful to keep it all square during the build, and since my TS fence is parallel to the blade, and the fence on the sled is perpendicular to the side of the sled, I just used that to reference off of when I installed the runners. They only trick was not moving the runners when I screwed them in. But they can be adjusted if needed.

I like the professional/ serious persona projected but it still contains your creative, witty personality. The project is pure “Stumpy” and I like that you are showing more of the project. In the past, you seemed to covet exposure time of the project on camera. With this video I think I can copy it without buying your plans! And for shirt pocket issues there were none. Can’t wait for the next vid.
