I added an “idiot band” in red paint to mine just to remind me where to keep my fingers out.

Nice one. I think this is one of the best additions you could make to a table saw. There are many upgrades that help get the job/s done.

Thanks Guys.

Jesinfla, if I could have only one jig for the table saw I think this would be it. It makes so many cuts that would otherwise not be safe possible and repeatable.

Awesome job…
Looks familiar…. I built one just yesterday… and HeartlandTX, I am going to copy your “idiot Band” too.
A month ago I built a 45 Degree crosscut sled too….

I’m responding late so you may have already done it. But, if you have a set of calipers and feeler gauges the 5 cut method is really good. If not, putting a peace of wood in the kerf of the sled and using a square will get you close.

Thanks Matt. Considering this is a hobby I am very lucky on the amount of space I have.
