I needed a sled cause i had a hard time cutting parts exacly in a 90° angleThis is what i made from it.The front piece is adjustable so if it would ever get out alignment i can still set it back to 90°.

Erik, this is certainly a nice looking sled that should improve your saw’s operation. This is one tool that, once I made it, I wondered why I did not make one sooner.
One suggestion I would have is to add some blocking on the rear fence just to be on the safe side and protect your fingers should the blade go through the rear fence.

I also like simple, shop-made tools, jigs, and fixtures.
Very nice looking sled. I would say it has “very clean lines.”
I think it was very smart to build in adjustability.
It makes this a piece that you’ll work with for a long, long time.

Very nice, and I too like the fact that it is adjustable.

Great shop saw upgrade Erik,and You have made a good decision with a cross-cut sled if accuracy is what You are after. I do think You should add some safety features when You can(rear gaurd/Lexon sheilding) but over all nice project !
