This is a crosscut sled I made off the plans from Eagle woodworking. Nice sled. The miter thingies are different to the ones in the eagle woodworking site. Made from 1/2” birch ply, a couple of piece of oak jointed flat and a bit of pine at the back to keep it altogether. Works pretty nicely, I used ultra high molecular weight plastic for the sliders and they are great, fit nicely into the miter slots and slide nice and smoothly.
I needed to make a new one for my new table saw, so it was nice to make something a bit more sophisticated than I had. The ability to put holddowns in the t-slots is very useful.
