What do you guys think of a table saw sled with a removable insert for different blades, and blade angles? This is just something I put together really quickly in Google Sketchup – not very detailed and not the final design – just demonstrating an idea. I can already think of a few problems such as the fence will get ripped up with the different blades/angles. I don’t want 8 table saw sleds laying around the shop. I figured it’d be much easier to just make one...
Hey guys. Just fooling around in the shop. Got tired of the wooden rails on my table saw sled expanding and shrinking, therefore making the table saw sled less accurate. I’ve never seen anyone on here (even though i’m sure there are) use metal rails for their sleds…..so i figured I’d give it a try. This was just an experiment – but it turned out even better than I thought it would, so i’m going to use it (even though I’ll probably change a few thi...
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.
Since it seems to be the season for table saw sleds I thought I post a video demo of my table saw sled and like to point out some of the features that sets it apart from other sleds .Some of the features are a double sliding bottom,full tilt of the blade range with zero clearence ,dado capability and several others .http://lumberjocks.com/projects/61820Here is the link to the video and it will explain all the features better than I can explain here . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70C...
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 two- where I demonstrate all of the attachments. You can get detailed instructions for the project here. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

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 tha...
