I know there are a ton of crosscut sleds out there. Everyone usually posts a tutorial on how to build one. I took the knowledge from some of those tutorials, and made them work for me. Since I don’t have standard sized miter slots, (thanks Craftsman), I had to make some mods to make it work well. Made mostly out of 3/4 inch ply for durability, and stability, and I used a veneered MDF shelf to cut my runners for it. So far, it works great, and cuts really well. Slides over the top of the saw very smoothly. Makes the saw I have, feel like a much more expensive one. Not too bad for some scraps, and a little bit of time. Also attached a stop block that hits the outfeed work table so it stops just right.
