I built this sled a long time before I got the incra V120. However I still use it regularly for small pieces and the stop block works extremely well and is super simple to set and move.

What a great looking sled.
Did you build it from plans, or make it up as you went along? If from plans, I’d love a peek at them…

Kind of looks like a Dubby.

Looks like a very useful sled! I love the idea of the micro-adjustable stop at 90 degrees, even for a fixed fence design that would be useful. No more chasing the perfect setting back and forth!

No plans. Saw one at a wood show about 20 years ago and made one back then. Back then all my woodworking was done in a public hobby shop and I left it there when I moved away. Finally decided to make another last year. It works great and is accurate.

Not sure what a Dubby is though.

Thanks for looking.
