This is my latest series of cutting sled jigs, made of playwood, strenghten with U and L aluminum profiles. Possibility to put toggle clamps on fances.

Photos 1 and 2 : vertical cuts with various angles from both sides (-63 to +63 degree); it’s aligned with saw up to 0.05 degree accuracy, but real accuracy you get when you realigne both fences together with digital angle gauge to get perfect angled joint for polygone frames
Photos 3, 4 and 5 : beveled – vertical to 45 degree cuts with various angles (-63 to +63 degree); suitable for making beveled polygone bowls.
Photo 5 : beveled tappering jig with various widths and angles (0-45 degree); One side tightened with knob and other side with screw into playwood

A very useful and well built jig Ivan. I like your idea of reinforcing the fences with aluminum.

If you have a way to set up repeatable cuts to your desired measurements then I like it.
I agree that this looks to be very useful.

Well done…............

Looks very interesting, but I think I would have to have an instruction manual. Abit mind boggling at first glance, but would open up a new world of projects that was difficult to do. A utube video would be great as a demo of how it is used.

Great project, I think you should make a set of plans, I’d buy them. This type jig would solve so many problems and inaccuracies in my shop and give everyone a jig that is too expensive to buy commercially.

Well, Ivan, you have the perfect sled for it, so let’s start cranking out some segmented turnings.

Fixtures and jigs are the key to accuracy, repeatability, and ease of cutting.
Your jigs will get that done!
