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 point but it’ll still work. I need to get a t-bolt and make the adjustable stop.
The blade box is a hollow bit of particleboard glued and screwed to the back of the rear fence. It rides about 1/8” above the surface of the table just to make sure it doesn’t drag.
Again, not pretty but a step up and forward.
-- Be honest, honorable, kind, work hard, and generally be awesome.
