this is a sled for making small puzzles
It has been made all from scratch with wood hold downs & stop blocks
Stop blocks ride in a dovetail cut into both sides of the sled
stop blocks are also dovetailed to slide up and down to hold material down, held in place by screws in set by metal inserts.
inside sled is a platform to hold metal hold downs to keep parts from lifting up when dado cuts them.
I have an additional platform to shift to the other side when doing 3/8 dados.
The sled has one metal runner which is possitioned so I can use it in reverse to cut 3/4 dados/
Stop Block idea from a Jointech which I made out of wood.
