We end up making these three or four times a year, so I decided to post about them because there are so many uses for them. Our cut-off boxes end up getting mitered in a few different angles and we fianlly have one for 45 degrees and a seperate for 90. It’s a quite useful and versitile tool, a must have in all shops.

This is a nice post that should prove to be helpful in constructing a sled.

One suggestion I would have deals with aligning the runners. I have found that putting double stick tape on the top of the runners and squaring the base of the sled to the fence while pressing the base down on the runners is an easier approach to aligning the runners. I have tried marking them and then trying to align them with the miter slots but have generally introduced some alignment errors doing it in this fashion.

I like that idea, I think it’s because at the home shop I have a smaller craftsman table and my fence has to come off to use the sled.

nice pointer though and maybe I’ll add it in as a foot note. not to mention the use of the fence when using the sled.

thanks scott
