Anyone that might be able to help me out. I have a 10” Craftsman Professional Contractors Tablesaw. There are NO Miter slots beside the blade. There are some beside the router table leaf to the left of the saw. My cuts suck, it needs adjusting constantly (Is my starter table saw) and I’d love to build a crosscut sled for it so I can have better and true 45* Angels and such with it. But being that there is no miter slots on the table itself. How would I go about building a Sl...
I frequently do smaller moldings in cabinet doors and other projects. I find it easier and safer to use a sled on my table saw rather than a miter saw. I can see my mark to cut by better this way. The small waste pieces don’t fly around as much. Years ago I was measuring a cabinet door job. As I was sketching the cabinets, the trim carpenter was cutting some small molding. The end piece flew off the saw and hit my face right by my eye. It bled a lot, but it turned out fine. However,...
I had to make a segmented ring for a clock im making and decided to try the wedgie sled, i’ll have to say its the simplest thing to make, but its absolutely incredible, Jerry, your a freking genius. On my very first test the pieces came out absolutely perfect. Now I can get the walnut and maple out and make the final ring. Finally got some pics uploaded, I had a piece of adjustable miter bar left over from another project so I cut a shallow dado to lock it in, and (borrowed a 30deg t...
This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...
So today, I needed to square a piece of plywood. I reached for my trusty TS panel-squaing jig, a la woodgears.ca, but the wood bar was sloppy in the miter slot. Don’t ask why—I didn’t make it that way. To make matters worse, the bar was set into a groove in the jig, so making another bar was not going to help. What to do? I suppose I could have made another complete jig, but didn’t feel like it. Instead, I tried to create a shop-built adjustable bar.... HereR...
I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thomaslightleFaceb...
I made a router sled to flatten a Farmhouse style dining table top I’m making. It’s a simple project that produced good results. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/ykNEqxTe23g
Here’s my version of a Table Saw Crosscut Sled. Thanks to Kiefer and Lynn for their videos/projects which provided the inspiration for my build. https://youtu.be/eGuMqDGexxM
This video shows my new bandsaw and also the sled I made for crosscuts and long cuts. View on YouTube
