I found this cool video of a dude making some neat stuff using his water mill powered woodshop. I thought the lumberjocks crowd might like it. I have no connection to the film in any way. A random find.folkstreams film 187

Miter Sled on the Cheap

03-26-2014 10:30 PM by iamcliff | 12 comments »

I have a few projects coming up that I need to make mitered corners for, like picture frames and such. I have not had much luck in the past with my miter saw. I guess the positive stops at 45 degrees are not perfect or something because I have aligned everything on it. I have been wanting to make a miter sled for quite some time now so I decided to just do it using whatever I have on hand. I will definitely remake this later on when I can afford proper materials, but at least I have som...

Modified my sliding crosscut sled for the band saw

01-05-2014 09:04 PM by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

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 bal...

Table saw sled #2: almost done

09-16-2013 08:49 PM by mIps | 2 comments »

The new sled is almost done and I am much happier with it. As you can see it’s a basic sled. No Schmancy bits but it runs better in the table, has a DIY T-Track and a blade box so, it’s a upgrade. The back fence is 2 pieces of 1×6 laminated together with glue and screws. I cut a slot in this 5/8” wide and 1/4” deep then laminated a piece of cheap 14” ply over it and cut a 1/4” slot in that to make the t-track. It’s a bit crooked at one ...

Cut off sled

09-05-2013 12:35 AM by mIps | 1 comment »

I had a cut-off sled, but I wasn’t happy with it. it didn’t slide well at all, I wanted a taller rear fence, and I wanted to try to make some t-track to go on it. so, today, I took apart my old one and started planning the new sled. I was able to remove the old runners without breaking them, which is good, and also without ripping apart the decent plywood that was the base, also good. I was able to determine that the left side of the sled was where the poor sliding problem was a...

Miter sled the 2nd

09-05-2013 12:28 AM by mIps | 1 comment »

I had a miter sled, but I didn’t really like it. It was heavy and bulky and, to be honest, not really that well made. So, since I had a few pieces leftover from trimming down the reclaimed counter top for my eventual router table, I decided to make a new one! This time I went in knowing a bit more about what I wanted and how I wanted to make it. The base is construction-grade 1/2” ply. Not the best but it’s what I had. the miter guide / fence pieces are leftover trim from...

Projects #7: New Cross-cut Sled W.I.P.

11-17-2012 01:07 AM by NedB | 4 comments »

Hi gang, long time no post… I’ve been in and out of the shop lately, this week I’ve been working on another batch of cutting boards. THe last time I made boards back at the end of August, I found that on some of my boards, my cross cut sled was building in an uneven cut (out of square) when I was trimming for the flip/glue stage of the boards. My old sled was built about 8 years ago, and I”m sure the fence can be adjusted. I didn’t glue it down, just screwe...

Tool thoughts #36: Time for a new crosscut sled

09-09-2012 06:38 PM by NedB | 5 comments »

I was cross-cutting the blanks for my latest set of cutting boards when I noticed that my cuts weren’t square. Not a big deal in this case, as I’m only going to be planing them down to thickness anyway, but in the long run it means that a Lot of projects have been ‘just a tad’ off, probably for awhile now. that shows the ‘variation’ here’s my venerable sled, just something that i threw together awhile back: it is about as simple as yo...
