I just got my first “real” table saw – a Delta 36-725. So far….loving it!

Of coarse no table saw is complete with out a cross cut sled. Sorta like pizza and beer. It’s just natural. So here’s my version of about 1000 designs you can find online. It features a flip up blade shield. and is also easily removable.

It also has an adjustable hold down clamp that can be slid up and down the fence, and has height adjustment. It can also be removed by simply pulling it out from the side. If it looks vaguely familiar, your right. It’s from a broken HF clamp. The first one to ever break from HF.

It also has an adjustable stop block with a knob in that the back to clamp it to the fence. It can be remopved also, by simply sliding it out. The large block in the middle is there as a safety block for protection from the blade.


Just thought I would share this sled design. I can’t wait to use it in real application, to see how it does. Feel free to comment. I’m always open for new ways of doing things, and learning from people on this forum who are a lot more experienced then I.

Great job! I’m with you, a sled is a must have. I guess it is all in what your use to. I know several people that don’t use them because they have other tools they use instead.

A good sled is a thing of joy. I really like the blade cover. Good application of the stop block and clamp as well.
