I needed to dado a lot of deck railing posts and needed a sled for the table saw so I built this one from a piece of maple plywood I brought with me and some 2×4’s and a couple of oak T shaped rails to fit the Craftsman saw. I added a long gauge arm to make them all consistent. It made quick work of this dado job. Now we have a sled for our park shop table saw!

Cheers, Jim

Sleds are always a welcomed addition in my shop and one for dados is no exception. I actually used my old cc sled to be dedicated to cut dados and miters when called upon! Nice job and thanks for sharing.

Cool sled Jim. I had that same craftsman TS at one point and its amazing how much a sled improved its usefulness. Well after I ground those pesky tabs out of the miter slots…lol Nice job sir.

Now your filling up the park shop with jigs. Your a good guy to have around. I’m sure it will get use from others. Nice job.

Great job Jim.
Very handy for multiple cuts.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
