This is a miter sled I put together a couple Years ago when I was building a mitered framed top for a toybox. With the length of the mitered rails and desire for accurate and splinter free cuts , I decided it was a good time to build another shop made fixture. The sled is pretty straight forward, constructed with stable materials (MDF / Aluminum angle) for hopefully years of accurate mitering. Also for accuracy I installed toggle clamps which come in handy for most cuts and keeps things put. I used hardwood runners with adjustable set screws. I installed a removable Lexon shield to keep things safe and fashioned a simple push handle out of scrap. The end results produce desirable miters after years of operation and is a welcomed addition to the shop. If You are thinking of putting one together, I think it’s well worth the effort !
