Here is my version of the Incra Miter Express/ Miter 5000 Crosscut Sled….. I was in need of crosscut sled and was going to build a crosscut sled but already owned the Incra 1000SE miter guage! I like the accuracy of the Incra guage and wanted to utilize the guage in my crosscut sled.
For me the Miter Express was too small…and the 5000 came with another miter guage and i didnt need a second Incra guage…. plus the 5000 requires you to mount the guage permantly to the sled! So, i ordered just the Utility panel from the Express and made my own panels.. Just half inch birch ply laminated on both sides with light gray formica.
It works awesome and allows me to crosscut panels up to 26” wide and is accurate and stable… the Falloff table may be alittle too big but i like it for now… I may cut it down later but i will keep it for now! I have also considered adding a second miter track to the sled to reduce any chance of racking. i would add a track to the left side of my routertable extension. what do you think? think i will need the additional miter track? Thanks!
