This tablesaw spent 6 of the first 7 years I’ve owned it in the garage. Now that I don’t have to move 2 cars to use it, I’m using it more than ever.
I know there are many ways to do this cut without a sled. This one is simple to use. I made it up as I went, and I can think of a few things I could have done if I had put more thought into this. I should have put another t track in the sled, parallel with and about 2” to the left of the blade, for another hold down clamp. A built in stop would work better than the way I clamp a board to the workbench on the outfeed side of the saw as a stop. I have a new tablesaw fence on order, what I build for this fence may not work on that, hence the board. The stop keeps the saw blade from exiting the back end of the jig. Also, I have the sawblade centered on the sled, maybe I should have more sled on the left side of the blade. This would have more space for workpiece and less for the off cut. Maybe even a ruler built into the fence.
It was simple to make, and so far, safe and accurate to use.
Just to see how it works I made a stand for my tablet.
