I built the crosscut sled a few months ago to fit the new saw and just added the tenon jig. Most of the idea came from the Eagle Lake Woodworking site. I made a few modifications like the toggle clamp and the 4 screws to the bottom of the tenon jig to square it to the blade. I have only made some test cuts so far, but it seems like it will work real well. The sled itself works beautifully and the bars for mitering work nice as well.
I built the tenon jig to replace the one I had made that straddled the rip fence. The problem I had with that one was the change in humidity caused it to fit too tight on the fence. This one should eliminate that problem.

Thanks for looking.

That’s pretty. I watched a couple of those vids.

I keep going downstairs to the shop with an eye to hacking together a basic sled. But I keep getting stumped on the rails.

The rails can be very simple.
Check my blog for a really simple sled.

I just made a quick version of a sled so that I can work on a project I need to get done by March. I like your design so much more, so I will definitly utilize it when I get more time. For now, I had to get something to work and I am really close to what I need for now.
