After having a couple of disappointing weekends returning newly purchased sub $200 Slider Miter Saws back to HF and Northern Tool, I decided instead, I would treat myself to a dedicated dual rail miter sled.
Total cost under $20.
The left and right supports are adjustable. This type of miter sled is based on left and right cuts which should sum to 90 degrees. And according to my digital square this is dead on. Test cuts are another story.
Although I’ve seen others use this type of sled successfully, I’m not altogether convinced that this is the way to go. For me, I find the sled too time consuming when it comes to setups, clamping tight against fence and preventing work from slipping and equal length of cuts setups.
So far the few short test cuts have not been in agreement with my digital and engineering squares due to lousy techniques and lack of patience and none slip surface.
Oh well, It will look good as a dust collector in a corner of the shop ;-)
