I recently made this little sled to accomodate my old tablesaw, to help make more accurate cutes, with the crappy mitter slots that came on the top, i added my own that fits inbetween the expandable table, this slot added to the one on the table makes a huge difference. I was looking thru all the posts about sleds in the project section, when i seen “outputter’s” sled design he came up with, awesome man, and it pushed me in this direction. I use this tablesaw at work for remodeling my office, and when i carry some of my hobby to work, thanks for looking

Nice handy little tool. You’ll get a lot of use out of that!
Thanks for sharing. I now have the urge to finish the one I started a while back.

I have made several sleds for my saw and find that using them is much better for cross cutting and mitering.

Have fun with the sled.

I have that very same saw and I have to say it is not the most precision tool :) I had considered a sled, but as you say the mitre slots are not really made for anything other than the flimsy plastic gauge that itself wobbles a couple of degrees from side to side within them. After seeing this I will have a go at something similar, thanks.

It looks like that extra slot might do the trick and the sled looks good. If it all works good then it’s great because that is what you are after.
